Whatsmore, Medlock Chinese audio-visual screencasts let you see what we are talking about, making Medlock Method Chinese classes much easier to follow and digest than audio-only courses.

Whole learning

Medlock Method Chinese lessons concentrate on teaching you the language through whole sentences, rather than lots of individual pieces of vocabulary that can be hard to learn and easily forgotten.

Structured learning for success

Because our lessons are carefully structured you will get a solid foundation in all Chinese sentence patterns giving you the ability to learn Chinese quickly and speak Chinese accurately and confidently.

No gimmicks. Learn Chinese by thinking

Medlock Method Chinese will guide you to language confidence and competence by using our “Ask me, Tell me” method of getting you to build up and think about whole sentences so that you can use the language as flexibly as any super learner.

Practice exercises included in the lessons

Because we actually practice the language patterns and vocabulary with you in the lessons you will find that you need much less review time than with traditional language schools or other Chinese language programs: Resulting in better motivation and quicker results.

I really enjoy your videos because, unlike other sources, they develop in a sequential and incremental way.

Deliberate practice

Because we give immediate feedback in the ASK ME TELL ME ™ exercises you can instantly compare what you have said with a model answer. This allows you to self-correct and avoid developing incorrect and difficult to change habits. Rapid feedback has also been shown in numerous studies to be a critical factor in effective learning.

Your “ask me tell me” technique is outstanding, it forces me to think on my feet, while it also draws attention to differences in how we might ask or answer something in English vs. Chinese.

Spaced repetition

The ASK ME TELL ME ™ exercises are spaced through each lesson and across units to repeat and reinforce key sentence patterns and vocabulary. This spaced repetition is a highly effective way of fixing your new language knowledge into your memory. Other language teaching systems may also use spaced repetition, but they use electronic flashcards. Frankly, this is not only an unnecessary complication but also tends to be boring. Boredom is a great demotivator for language learners.
