Why Use Language Mentor to Learn Chinese?
Here are a few of Language Mentor's key advantages. If you'd like to learn more, we suggest that you read our home page.
- Language Mentor is a free app for iPhone and Android that offers language lessons in a "mostly audio" format. We use this format so that you can study Chinese while you are doing other things. It's a great way to study Chinese while you're cleaning the house or out for a walk. By allowing you to study at times like these Language Mentor creates "free" study time in the midst of your busy life.
- Because it's an open platform, Language Mentor has the potential to offer virtually unlimited lessons. Most language courses and apps offer a limited number of lessons and will only get you to the beginner level of the language that you are studying. Currently, Language Mentor has over 80 Chinese lessons (including a great series of Newbie lessons).
