Pop Up Chinese is a great self study tool.

If you are interested in learning Chinese, then mosey on over to and check it out. They offer lots of free stuff like a right click translator, which has come in handy on many an occasion, but the best thing of all, is the free podcasts! The absolute beginner podcasts are great for people like me, who only know a little “taxi cab” Chinese.

Also, the lessons are designed to be practical. Take this episode on ordering pizza, for instance. They really breakdown everything and take their time explaining the vocabulary and subtle variations, in detail. They incorporate lots of repetition into the lesson too, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know about you, but I need lots of repetition!

Now I’m ready to go to the local pizza joint and order a “large” pizza by myself!

If you decide to upgrade, the price is affordable and the product is user friendly. So why not give it a try?
