The videos will be available 24/7 for all Firecracker members to view. If there is not currently a weekly video chat session scheduled for a time you can make it, the videos will always fit your schedule.

Interactions that motivate you to practice what you learn

Language helps us interact and interacting helps us learn language. The goal of FLC Firecraker memberships is to create interactions that ignite your learning of the Chinese language.

Very practical fun

There is a particular thrill to being able to put to use something we have learned. The Chinese language is immensely useful and practical. The more you have fun practicing it, the more you will be ready to have fun using it.
