Mandarin Chinese Lessons with Serge Melnyk is an English-language website used to learn Mandarin Chinese. It was founded in January 2006 to help people interested in learning spoken Chinese for free. The website provides Mandarin Chinese podcasts, audio lessons, and other study materials used for learning Chinese: 200+ professionally recorded audio lessons, PDF transcripts, videos and study tools. The podcasts are produced by Serge Melnyk and his team of native Chinese speakers.
As of September 2013[update], Mandarin Chinese Lessons with Serge Melnyk has recorded and published online 200+ podcasts, individual audio dialogs, and over 100 hours of listening materials. The site offers free and premium model subscriptions. Subscribers have access to everything on the website, including bulk downloads of lessons and PDF transcripts.
The app is free to download, but users can also pay a subscription of $127 (777 yuan) per year to access written materials that accompany the podcasts. The website also offers private classes conducted over a Skype video call.
Apart from his content, Melnyks said his other advantage is his flexibility: users "can't [usually] write to a publisher for feedback... this is a live course, with live support."
The site offers services on a wide variety of subjects, from answering Chinese grammar questions to advice on where to study in China. Lessons are created together with podcast listeners on any topic. For example, if someone is interested in a lesson on Chinese martial arts or doing business in China, they can directly communicate their needs with the producers and the team will record a customized or personalized lesson.
