Learn Chinese by Typing! Learn Pinyin, Simplified and Traditional Characters.

IQChinese understands the bottlenecks and challenges that learners face when learning Chinese as a second language. IQChinese courseware and software constitutes a unique, multimedia Chinese language learning system that integrates the familiarity of typing with a detailed, individual performance analysis into an easy-to-use, computer-friendly format that makes learning Mandarin Chinese easy, enjoyable, and effective.

IQChinese GO courseware is an eight volume series, each volume containing ten lessons and each lesson introducing 12 new, high-frequency, common, and “everyday-type” Chinese words. The entire series employs a “spiral format” that builds on previously taught vocabulary while only introducing twelve new characters at a time. GO courseware allows learners to acquire Chinese in a systematic way. GO 100-400 is the basic series; GO 500-800 is the intermediate/advanced series.

Type-to-Learn Methodology

Type-to-Learn is exactly what it says it is, a way to become fluent with one thousand basic, high-frequency Chinese characters by actually typing on your computer. Nothing special is needed, any basic keyboard is sufficient. You can see exactly what characters and tones are giving you the most difficulty and then hone in to correct them. This lets students use multiple learning styles based on sensory preferences: Visual Preferences, Tactile Preferences, Auditory Preferences, and Kinesthetic Preferences.

  1. Read the text, see the Chinese characters
  2. Type the text and select the correct tone mark
  3. Hear the correct pronunciation and tone
  4. Speak and/or type what has been learned

Type to Learn with the “Drill” Function

This is the heart of learning Chinese by typing. In Drill you see the character and must enter the correct Pinyin and tone mark before the character is spoken aloud. Drill motivates you to apply what you have learned.

This is a unique approach that enhances the learner’s word recognition, listening ability and reading ability simultaneously; in some cases, tripling the speed of learning.
