💡Introducing the Slow Chinese user's guide

Take your Chinese language skills to the next level in 2023

Dec 14, 2022


This is a video guide on how to make the most of the Slow Chinese membership resources.

I presented it during our monthly member’s forum in December and decided to share it with you too.

It’s also packed full of more general tips on how to optimise your language learning through building a learning habit.

We cover:

  • Who the Slow Chinese membership is for

  • What learning challenges they have

  • The benefits of using the resources

  • Features - what’s included and why

  • Tips on how to make use of the membership product as a language learning tool

This 30 minute video is a deep-dive into how the Slow Chinese membership takes the free content of the newsletter and turns it into a powerful and unique language learning resource based on three pillars:

  • Building a learning habit

  • Creating context to help remember and put into practice

  • Delivering engaging content for advanced learners

Though native audio, original resources, and an engaged community, the Slow Chinese membership helps you achieve three goals:

  • Maintain language level

  • Improve Mandarin skills

  • Stay on top of the the latest language trends

And, most importantly, we teach you words and phrases to help you show off your amazing language skills with Chinese friends and colleagues through content you probably won’t you find in a text book.

“Is the membership right for me?”

Here is a quick quiz to decide if membership is right for you:

  • Are you frustrated that your hard-won Chinese language skills are getting worse not better?

  • Do you find it hard to make time for improving your language skills?

  • Do you struggle with motivation to carry on learning Chinese?

  • Is it difficult to find good content to help you learn?

  • Do you finally want to invest in taking your Chinese language skills to the next level in 2023 but don’t know how to?

If you are an advanced or long-time learner of Chinese, and the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, then you’re in luck.

Because the 250+ members of the Slow Chinese community all faced these exact same problems.

But as you’ll see from the User’s Guide, they now access unique learning resources, engaging content, and a community of like-minded learners who are all taking their language skills to the next level.

So, invest in yourself, take your Chinese language skills to the next level, build a learning habit in 2023, and join our community now!

PLUS: We’ll arrange a 20 min 1+1 video call with you in the New Year to personally welcome you to the community, understand your language learning challenges, and share tips on how to make best use of the Slow Chinese resources (a lot of which we covered in the user’s guide ;)).

What people are saying about the Slow Chinese membership

Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what one of more than 200 members of our community says about the membership:

Andrew Methven's Slow Chinese newsletter and podcast is the best and most efficient way I have found to maintain my Chinese reading abilities and learn new idiomatic language, and because it's drawn from Chinese media reports and online language, it's also an excellent method of keeping up with current events, as Chinese people are reading about them.

I look forward to welcoming more of you into our community. And, as always, I’ll be landing in your inbox this Saturday
