Welcome to eTower, a collection of online, interactive modules for learning Chinese language and culture. This free and open resource is specifically designed to bridge users with some previous Chinese language learning experience to a higher proficiency level. Whether you are new to online education or to the Chinese language, these hands-on interactive lessons will immerse you in both the language and culture of China.

How Does eTower Work?

Built around best practices for teaching and learning Chinese, each module allows you the ability to create your own path through the various activities and tasks based on your prior knowledge and personal learning goals. You will have the opportunity to interact with the system by reading, writing and speaking Chinese - in turn, you will receive tailored feedback in real-time based on your performance.
