ChinesePod (Save up to $96!)
If you’re looking for one of the best all-around Chinese language learning solutions, ChinesePod is one of the best there is.
I started listening to ChinesePod podcasts almost a decade ago and I fell in love with the “listen to learn” approach. People who study in this way have a much better chance of learning Chinese with a proper pronunciation.
$29/month$249/year (Premium) or $124/year (Basic)
- Coupon Code: BLACKFRIDAY
Rocket Languages (60% Savings)
Rocket Languages is another all-in-one language solution that is extremely popular among language learners. Their Chinese program includes interactive audio lessons, culture lessons and more.
Unlike ChinesePod, which is a subscription model, this is a one-time payment for lifetime access to the course and any future upgrades.
$449.85$179.94 (save 60%!)
- Coupon code: XMAS60
Skritter (50% Savings)
I’ve already talked about in the past how much I love Skritter. It’s hands-down my favorite app to help me learn how to write Chinese characters.
Not only is the app fun to use (it applies the whole “gamification” model to learning), you can also add any custom vocab lists you want. Intuitive, spaced-repetition ensures that you’re putting each character into long-term memory.
$14.99$7.50 for the 1st month (save 50%!)
- Coupon Code: TCCSPECIAL
DuChinese (30% Savings)
What Skritter is for learning how to write Chinese, the DuChinese app is for learning how to read Chinese.
You can think of it like an advanced graded reader, where you can easily look up words, pinyin and even pronunciation. The lessons are a really fun way to progress, making you excited to take out your phone and study Chinese whenever you have a break. There are free lessons for you to try before you buy.
- Pricing: $11.99/mo or $89/year
- Coupon Code: none required if you use the button below
YoYoChinese (30% Savings)
YoYo Chinese is a tool that is built on the premise that fast learning doesn’t just depend on the student…it’s heavily dependent on whether or not you have a quality teacher.
So that’s what they bring – one of the best Chinese teachers in the business giving hundreds of video lessons through courses that are broken up into beginner’s, intermediate, conversational Chinese, learning Chinese characters and more. All courses are now 30% off!
- Pricing: Courses range from $20 to $349, all with a 30% discount.
