STUDENTS OF CHINESE,
WHY WASTE TIME and ENERGY with BORING and INEFFICIENT studying materials?
Dive into a multi-dimensional learning experience that will make your Chinese learning FUN and EASY
Get active & practical Chinese language skills deep under your skin, feel relaxed & boost your confidence!
Becoming fluent in Chinese has been an important part of my journey towards natural self-confidence.
Chinese language has also opened totally new perspectives on life and the world around us.
Filip Mráček, founder of Chineseffect
Imagine your future self that is confident in Chinese.
Imagine the extra respect that you gained in the eyes of others.
How did you get to the point where people admire you for your skills in the language that is generally considered hard?
First of all you are smart and you want to get somewhere in life.
Secondly, you used the science and experience based SMART LANGUAGE™ methodology.
SMART LANGUAGE™ method presents vocabulary in meaningful connections because our memory takes enormous advantage from creating a network of associations.
Another thing that helped you gain new confidence is that instead of learning isolated words (that our brains usually don't see as worth remembering) you learned meaningful and practical sentences with the SMART LANGUAGE™ method .
Also - you had fun during the process, you engaged in all different types of multimedia, you refreshed previous sentences thanks to SMART REPETITION and you took all sorts of interactive audio-visual quizzes.

Why is it SMART to use a unique FUSION of ANALOG and DIGITAL materials?
We are convinced - and science research proves us right - that the richer our learning experience, the deeper the knowledge.
The possibilities of digital media are endless and we in Chineseffect love them: animations of characters, interactive presentations, videos with sentence recap, playful quizzes, you name it.
But let's be honest. There is something truly magical and very natural about interacting with a thing that you can actually touch.
Holding a (play)book in your hands and being able to write inside it is simply a different sort of experience.
We want you to progress in an unprecedented way with our powerful FUSION of analogue and digital content.
MAGIC PLAYBOOK lets you practice writing characters.
Scan QR code and you will see amazing animations and other digital content.
IS THIS YOU?
Poorly informed students spend their time with apps like Duolingo-Chinese or Hello Chinese, or with a number of generic and terribly boring textbooks.
They probably think that the best way to learn Chinese is to play with shiny apps and read dull textbooks.
They just slip through the content most of the time. The content usually doesn't stick with them.
Discovering that sooner or later makes them feel frustrated and sometimes even not smart enough.
They usually give up before reaching the point of feeling good about themselves.
Smart and truly motivated students pick materials that are based on SMART LANGUAGE™ methodology and provide an efficient FUSION of analogue and digital content.
Smart students prefer well thought-out solutions over apps and textbooks that may sometimes even look great but completely lack methodology.
They are not happy with shiny mainstream solutions, so they go for materials that actually help them progress in a way that uncovers their potential.
Soon enough they are pleasantly surprised about their new abilities.
