WHY TCB?At TCB, content is king. That's why we produce four times more lessons than any other Chinese news-based learning resource, guaranteed by our stringent 7-point strict editorial process. By breaking Chinese learning into fun, manageable chunks, TCB takes the chore out of the daily character grind. We understand better than anybody that as materials for other languages have progressed, Mandarin has tended to get left behind, and for that reason we are leading the revolution! Throw away those textbooks and learn in a way that is exciting, engaging and fun. Whether you are studying for a HSK exam, or just want to push your Mandarin to the next level, TCB is the platform for you.
TCB QUALITY CONTROLExtra functionality is great, but our primary concern has been and will always be article quality. For that reason, we developed a stringent six-point editorial process to ensure the quality of everything we produce. You can read our news lessons with peace of mind that the language and content used has been double and triple checked by professionals to our precise standards. Our writers and editors work tirelessly behind the scenes and we will always continue to improve.
