FAQs about the Chinese Character Mentorship Package

I'm a beginning/intermediate/advanced student. How will this package help me?

Beginners click here

If you're a beginner, this package will get you started on the right foot. You'll be super clear on how Chinese characters do their job, as well as practical tips for memorizing them more effectively.

Then the dictionary will be there for you as you learn new characters—it covers 2700 characters and counting! We teach you characters in an additive way: each character you learn gets you one step closer to being able to make predictions about the sounds and meanings of characters you haven't even learned yet!

Imagine how much easier it would be to learn a new character if you could look at it and already predict what the possible range of meaning and sound might be. That's an ability you usually only develop after learning a few thousand characters, but using our system you'll start to develop it after only a few hundred.

Not to mention, your feeling for that possible range will be much stronger than theirs, because they haven't been taught this stuff—they're left to their own devices to recognize patterns, whereas you'll know the patterns because you've been learning them from the beginning.

Intermediates click here

If you're intermediate, you've probably started to pick up on some of the patterns in Chinese characters. Maybe you've noticed that some characters containing 各 are pronounced lu or luo (路、洛 etc.), for example. Or maybe you've noticed that characters containing 尚 all rhyme with -ang, but you can't figure out why they start with so many different initials (d-, t-, sh-, ch-, zh-).

Knowing those patterns is super useful, but you've got some gaps in your knowledge because teachers generally leave you to figure things out for yourself. They don't teach how characters work; they just make you work. And what's worse, it's busy work. Wouldn't it be great if your efforts actually paid off? If you're sick of hearing "just write it 50 times and you'll remember," you know exactly what we mean.

Using our system, you'll gain clarity, and learn exactly what the patterns are and how to use them to your advantage.

Knowing these patterns will also help you to distinguish similar-looking characters. Do you ever forget whether a character should have 良 or 艮? Hint: if the character is pronounced gen, ken, or hen, it's 艮; if it's lang, liang, niang, etc., then it's 良.

Or maybe you can remember the right side of a character but not the left? Or you see 银 and misread it as 很?

We'll show you how to keep these straight in your mind so you can forget about forgetting.

Advanced learners click here

If you're advanced, you'll probably already know all of the characters we teach in the course. But that's ok, because the characters themselves aren't the point—the concepts are. And they'll help tremendously, both with learning new characters you need, and with recalling characters you already know.

Check out these reviews from advanced students who have been learning for years, like you:

"After a month of not reviewing, I was able to write (not just recognize) 283 of the 300 characters in my queue. Before I took the Outlier course, it would have been 0." —Edsko De Vries (has been learning for 6 years)

"I want to say thank you from Auckland, New Zealand. Thank you for making such a great course and dictionary. It's really refreshing for someone like me who started studying Chinese 20 years ago to finally have such effective Chinese character learning tools available, putting years of frustration to an end. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" —Max Bronson (has been learning for 20 years!)

You may know 2000 characters or more by now, but there are definitely some that give you trouble. Maybe it's because the character's form doesn't seem to make sense from a modern perspective.

An easy example is, why does 漢/汉 contain the water 氵 component? It's because 漢/汉 was originally the name of a river, then the name of the people living near the river, the dynasty they founded, and then the people who were ruled over by that dynasty. If you don't know the original meaning, however, the character's form won't seem to make sense.

That's because the original meaning is the only meaning that's directly related to the character's form. That's a concept that just isn't taught in Chinese classes—along with a lot of other concepts we cover in our course. Once you've learned the concepts in our course, you can use our dictionary to re-learn the characters you're having problems with, and I guarantee they'll make a lot more sense and they'll stick like glue.

You'll also be able to recall the characters you've learned more easily. Ash's PhD qualifying exams were two 6-hour, handwritten essays in Chinese with no books, phones, or dictionaries allowed—just a pen and paper. He forgot how to write one character he hadn't written in a while (頓), but was able to use his knowledge of the logic behind Chinese characters to recall it correctly. Imagine having that kind of "superpower"! We're going to teach you exactly how to do that yourself.

Does the course teach simplified or traditional characters?

Both! All of our products cover both sets equally. You'll be able to download the files for either simplified or traditional, or both if you'd like—they're all included!

Is this a subscription?

Nope! We know most companies are using a subscription model these days, but that's not the case with us. It's just a one-time purchase, and you get access to the materials for life! And we have a 30-day money back guarantee. If you're not satisfied, just get in touch and we'll be happy to give you a full refund!

Will I be able to access the courses once I've finished them?

Yes! When we say "for life," we mean it! We'll keep the videos available online, and the PDFs are yours to keep, of course. We may later move the course to another platform, but we'll let you know beforehand and we'll make sure you're able access it on the new platform.

How much time will it require?

Well, that's up to you and will depend on your level and how deeply you want to dive in. It will probably be more useful for me to describe what kind of material the Masterclass has, and then you can probably estimate how much time you want to devote to it per week.

The video lessons are all 5-15 minutes long. There are also PDF materials covering the same or similar material, often in a bit more depth than the video. And there are 25 characters to learn per lesson, though you can choose whether you want to memorize the characters, or just read the explanations and understand how they relate to the lesson—all of the characters are chosen to demonstrate the concepts in that lesson.

That's actually quite a bit of material, but remember, you can go at your own pace! You can also decide to just look over the characters rather than memorizing them the first time through, and then come back to memorizing them later. It's up to you! You get lifetime access to the course, so you can always come back to it again later to dive in deeper!

What's the Magnetic Memory Method Chinese Course like?

Dr. Anthony Metivier is one of the world's foremost experts on memory, and he's coached memory champions in multiple countries. He's been learning Chinese for a while now, and when he saw our material he reached out to partner with us. He's created a course that's specifically designed to 1) teach you some powerful, state-of-the-art memory techniques, and 2) apply them to learning characters the Outlier way. It's a one-of-a-kind course, and it's not available anywhere except this Mentorship Package.

Are you guys really there to answer my questions or is it some gimmick?

It's no gimmick—we really answer every question personally, and we often go into a lot of depth. Take a look at what one of our students said recently about our replies:

"By the way - I can tell that the Chinese language truly is a passion for you and John. Just from the detail and breadth of your replies I'm able to tell that this means much than a mere "online course" or a "hobby" for you two. It's a place to share a love of the different Chinese dialects (with a predominant focus on Mandarin of course) - as well as a forum to share the love of learning the language and the many facets of its history, past and present." —Richmond Wong

If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is! We really do love this stuff, and it's pretty much all we talk about anyway, so we really enjoy answering your questions and trying to guide you through the journey—with less pain than we had when we started out!

Have a question we didn't answer? Just contact us!

About the Dictionary

      • The Expert Edition
      •  
      • Our dictionary is the solution to your character learning problems! This is the dictionary we wish we had when we were learning! As an an add-on for the free Pleco dictionary app, it covers both Simplified and Traditional characters. It's based on over 5000 references from 103 peer-reviewed academic sources (so far). No other resource even comes close. Don't let that scare you though—the explanations are written in simple, concise, and predictable language!
      •  
      • It includes the Essentials edition (for 2700+ characters, and will be updated until we hit 4000), which systematically explains each character in straightforward, but accurate terms.
      •  
      • That means no more wondering why that character looks the way it does!
      •  
      • With our simple system of functional components, i.e., a character's working parts, we show you how each character represents sound and meaning, allowing you to quickly build up a feeling for how characters as a system represent sound and meaning.
      •  
      • Imagine how much easier it is to learn a new character when you can already predict roughly what it will sound like and what it will mean BEFORE you learn it? You can forget about forgetting!
      •  
      • We also show you which meanings are important and how they are related to one another. Things are easier to remember when you can associate them!
      •  
      • In addition to the 2700+ Essentials entries, the Expert Edition also contains "Expert" Entries for about 150 characters (plus regular updates until we reach 4000).
        •  
        • Expert Entries contain extensive information about the character's origin, evolution, and other interesting historical and cultural information.
        •  
        • In short, it contains everything you need to know to master the characters you're trying to learn!

Chinese Character Semantic Components Poster PDFs

About the Posters

      • As visually stunning as they are informative, these posters give you quick access to the most common 100 semantic components in Chinese characters for quick review and comparison. They also look great on your wall—though it's up to you print them out and hang them up!
      •  
      • Each Semantic Components poster PDF contains:

        • ◆ 50 common semantic components, beautifully handwritten by calligrapher Harvey Dam
        • ◆ explanations of their form and meaning(s)
        • ◆ pronunciation in Hanyu Pinyin (and Zhuyin Fuhao for the traditional posters)
        • ◆ stroke order
        • ◆ important additional information about the component, including related components
        • ◆ variant forms
        • ◆ a Chinese name or description of the component (so you can talk about components with your Chinese-speaking friends!)
        • ◆ a few example characters using it as a semantic component.

         

        These are hi-resolution, A1 size (59.4 x 84.1cm, 23.39 x 33.11 inches) PDF files available with both a simplified and traditional character focus (2 posters each), though both versions will contain both sets of characters.

    • ◆ explanations of their form and meaning(s)
    • ◆ pronunciation in Hanyu Pinyin (and Zhuyin Fuhao for the traditional posters)
    • ◆ stroke order
    • ◆ important additional information about the component, including related components
    • ◆ variant forms
    • ◆ a Chinese name or description of the component (so you can talk about components with your Chinese-speaking friends!)
    • ◆ a few example characters using it as a semantic component.

     

    These are hi-resolution, A1 size (59.4 x 84.1cm, 23.39 x 33.11 inches) PDF files available with both a simplified and traditional character focus (2 posters each), though both versions will contain both sets of characters.
