What Fun Learning Chinese is
Fun Learning Chinese (FLC) publishes free blog posts with accompanying audio. These are offered as a source of conversational-style practice with the Chinese language, with translational and grammatical discussion.
FLC also sells books and memberships. For a full explanation of membership options click on the link below:
Fun Learning Chinese Firecracker Memberships
FLC is not a programmed course of study. Progress with understanding and using the Chinese language is not guaranteed, as it is very dependent on how the learner practices and what other resources are used.
Exactly what is offered and what is free or sold may change. Notification will be given as deemed appropriate for the specific product or situation.
Memberships and Privacy
Three levels of membership are offered to provide even more practice opportunity. These are explained in detail here.
Members are responsible to maintain their password in confidence. Members agree to not reproduce or share membership material with non-members outside of their immediate and co-habitating family.
FLC collects such information as is necessary to provide the membership. FLC reserves the right to discontinue a membership.
FLC is not responsible for what members say and do during interactive sessions, forums, or any place where people interact with each other. If things said or done are disruptive of other members trying to use FLC, FLC may decide to discontinue the disruptive member’s membership. Beyond that FLC will NOT publish a code of conduct beyond the universal “love your neighbor as yourself.”
Scheduling and Video Technology
The live sessions are scheduled at pre-set times. Please check this carefully and compare to your own time zone before choosing your type of membership. If you cannot come to the live sessions, please consider either the Silver or Bronze membership, both of which have access to the recordings of the sessions.
Times are given in Mountain Standard Time (Boise, Idaho, United States). Please confirm what time that will be in your own time zone. As of 2019, we are still subject to daylight savings times adjustments. This means we revert to Standard Time the first full weekend of November, then change to Daylight Savings Time the first full weekend of March.
The live sessions will be held via Zoom.us. To attend you must have internet access and be able to use Zoom (you do not need to have your own account).
The exact details of the memberships are explained on the membership page, which you can access here or from the link under Memberships and Privacy. The prices are as follows
- Golden Firecracker: $24.99/month or $200/year
- Silver Firecracker: $15.99/month or $145/year
- Bronze Firecracker: $10.99/month or $89/year
Prices may change at any time. Due notice will be given to members if such changes are made.
Payments are processed through secure 3rd party payment processors. No payment information is received or kept by FLC.
Payments will be automatically recurring on the time table selected by the member. Members will be given notice of any changes in prices. If the payment method on file stops working, the member will be notified as soon as possible. Membership will be suspended until payment is again processed.
Monthly memberships may be cancelled at any time. No refunds will be given for monthly memberships.
Annual memberships may be cancelled after trying them for one month. A refund will be given based on the amount of time the membership was active and based on the current monthly subscription rates. For instance, if a Silver Firecracker Annual Membership is purchased, then canceled after 4 months, if the current Silver Firecracker Monthly Membership is $15.99/month:
$145 – (4 x $15.99) = 145 – 63.96 = $81.04 is the refund given
But, of course, we hope you find our memberships valuable and keep having fun learning Chinese with us!
These terms of service may change at any time. Members will be notified. Others should refer back right before signing up for membership.
