Chinese Learning that Works
Mandarin Chinese in principle is a simple language. No cases, no tenses, no gender, no conjugations. Gurulu is utilizing this to make Chinese easier for you, focusing your time and effort on effective Vocabulary acquisition and language Practice, while keeping track of your Progress and Targets.
Efficient Vocabulary Training
Unlike other languages, Mandarin Chinese has a logical and systematic structure; everything is connected. Driving the VocabXpress, Gurulu's intelligent language algorithms use what you already know to make connections in the Chinese vocabulary network so you learn faster than with a list or a box of flash cards.

Gurulu's Beginners Fastlane has 3 sets of 10 lessons each. It gets you started and advances you to the novice level. You will learn 300 basic Chinese words and begin to understand simple Chinese conversations. Learning Mandarin is easier than often portrayed because its grammar is simple and its vocabulary logical. The more you know, the faster you will improve.
