Looking for the best Chinese language resources and courses?
These are my all-time favorite resources for learning Chinese. There are quite a lot of Chinese resources out there but these are the ones I've personally found to be the best.
I'll update this list over time.
Transparency: Most of my content and recommendations are completely non-profitable for me but occasionally, I use affiliate links. Some links below earn me a commission (at no extra cost to you).
Rocket Chinese: This is my personal favorite and one I can't recommend enough. Rocket Chinese is so incredibly popular and covers an enormous amount of Chinese language content (3 comprehensive courses, in fact). Do yourself a favor and do a free trial.
ChineseClass101 (Innovative): Ever heard of ChineseClass101? I'd be surprised if you haven't! ChineseClass101 teaches uses a fun podcast format and it's a joy to listen to.
There are some really great books out there for learning Chinese but these are some of my personal favorites:
Wyzant: Create a free account and have look at the unbelievable amount of Chinese teachers available for low cost.
Some Chinese teachers on Wyzant are so cheap it will shock you.
Mondly: An amazing and comprehensive app for learning Chinese (and many other languages). Covers loads of relevant Chinese topics and is beautifully designed.
Drops: A very popular app (available for Chinese) that does flashcard-style learning for vocabulary.
Pimsleur Chinese: One of the biggest household names in language learning. It's been around for decades and is still one of the greatest Chinese introductory courses ever made (audio only).
Duolingo: Surely you've heard of Duolingo! It's a decent, free platform that teaches you Chinese grammar through a unique translation game.
