Mandarin Poster

Mandarin Poster

We make stuff to help you learn Chinese

The Idea

The idea for Mandarin Poster was conceived in mid 2010 by a couple of Brits learning Chinese in Taiwan. Their aim was to create a study aid that would be valuable for newcomers to Chinese and seasoned learners alike. As the poster starts from the most frequently used words, which for the most part are the most basic, this makes it perfect for beginners while at the same time being useful as a reference for intermediate and advanced learners as the list progresses.

Since then we have sold thousands of Mandarin Posters to over 60 different countries around the world!

He founded and runs Chinese Hacks, a blog dedicated to learning Chinese. You can follow Dave on Twitter @DaveFlynn or simply ask for “茶米” at any number of Betel Nut stores (檳榔店) in southern Taiwan.


After spending several years learning Chinese in Taiwan, Chris moved to Germany to build web sites and eat Knödel.
