Many people find hand-writing characters fun, but it takes a long time to learn and typically isn't used outside of the learning environment.
Most people "write" in Chinese by typing in pinyin and then selecting words they recognize, which is what Hack Chinese trains you to do.
The first thing we do is estimate your current vocabulary, so we can immediately teach you words that are probably new to you.
Over time, we go back and double-check everything we assumed you knew, to make sure you don't have any gaps in your knowledge.
Students typically add 150-450 new words to their vocabulary each month and enjoy fast, accurate recall of them.
While it is possible to learn at any pace, we recommend learning 300 or fewer words per month unless you are studying Chinese full-time.
Hack Chinese is a niche tool that solves one of the most challenging aspects of learning Chinese: memorizing Chinese characters and words.
Hack Chinese is not meant to be used in isolation. It is meant to be used as part of a holistic study program. (The one exception to this is heritage speakers -- people who grew up speaking Chinese, but never learned to read).
