Can we change your ideas about language learning? Take the 15 Minute Mandarin Challenge and find out!

01 Feb 2016

Speak to the Future has teamed up with Minute Mandarin to offer a free mobile App aimed at everyone who thinks that language learning is not for them, and that Chinese is especially hard.

To celebrate Chinese New Year, throughout the month of February we are challenging everyone to devote 15 minutes of their time to test out a new App which could change the way they think about language learning!
