“I wholeheartedly recommend The Chairman’s Bao to all students of Chinese at intermediate level and above, for self-learning or to supplement a formal course. The bite-sized bespoke articles are equally ideal for graduates of Chinese or others with more advanced levels who want a pain-free method to keep their language skills ticking over on a daily basis. The links to HSK levels are a useful bonus. There is a remarkable range of online resources now available to help people learn Chinese, but very few are as user-friendly and well-designed as the TCB, and even fewer cover such interesting topics. I have found myself recommending the site on numerous occasions and will continue to do so.”
Extra functionality is great, but our primary concern has been and will always be article quality. For that reason, we developed a stringent six-point editorial process to ensure the quality of everything we produce. You can read our news lessons with peace of mind that the language and content used has been double and triple checked by professionals to our precise standards. Our writers and editors work tirelessly behind the scenes and we will always continue to improve. In 2016 expect more articles, across a wider range of topics, with the same exacting quality that you have come to expect from TCB.
Finding a variety of up-to-date suitable material, graded to the levels of students and teachers in large volumes is one of the biggest hurdles faced for students and teachers alike. TCB publishes five times more content than any other news-based graded reader, ensuring teachers and students are never short of compelling and engaging content.
By breaking Chinese learning into fun, manageable chunks, TCB takes the chore out of the daily character grind. We understand better than anybody that as materials for other languages have progressed, Mandarin has tended to get left behind, and for that reason we are leading the revolution! Throw away those textbooks and learn in a way that is exciting, engaging and fun. Whether you are studying for a HSK exam, or just want to push your Mandarin to the next level, TCB is the platform for you.
