Whether you have already passed HSK6, or are just starting out learning Mandarin Chinese, we have the people and resources to help you out even more. Most importantly, you will make true friends with others around the world pursuing the same dive. It's quite fun!
Studying Chinese is one thing, but actually practicing reading, writing, speaking, and listening on a regular basis is something completely different. We give you opportunities to do all of the above. The result: you will progress faster and more efficiently towards your goals.
Break Divers don't wait for for opportunities. They dive in to the cold and icy shark-infested waters of resistance and make their own breaks. And we do this worldwide. Not just with Chinese, but with hundreds of dives, from acting to Zimbabwe! Come join us.
OUR MISSION: Break Diving is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity, based in the United States with one focus: your happiness and success. But we don't like working with 'takers'--we want to help those who love to help others too. If you are willing to share your talents, gifts, and education with others, we will all be happy to share ours with you too.
THE FLUENCY PROJECT: Fluency Project has one mission: to help you become fluent in foreign languages. There is no easy route to foreign language victory, but we know what it takes: HARD WORK. In other words: Reading; Writing; Speaking; Listening; And increasing your vocabulary on a daily basis. Ready to join us and get to work?
Chat live with others in Chinese. 你准备好了吗？
Come and chat in Chinese with others in our live chat room.
Reading and writing in real-time can help you dramatically improve your Chinese language skills.
Have questions? Need feedback on your essay? Want to share a photo?
Why post on English social media when you can post in Chinese?
Post longer messages in Chinese. Get feedback on something you're working on. Write a short essay and receive responses in Chinese!
Of course, you can post in English too, if that helps you!
Studying alone can get very lonely at times. So don't!
We are all here to help you. With members in China to those in New York, and from native speakers to total beginners, we stand ready to help you reach your goals and we genuinely want to become your new friend too!
If you want to learn all the shortcuts, we have the answers you seek.
Note: there aren't many shortcuts, haha!
Both online and in person, we want you to meet others!
Nothing can ever compare to face-to-face encounters. So join us!
Whether via our online video conferences, or through in-person meetings in a major city near you, we want our members to meet, interact, and embrace their dreams face to face.
The more you practice live, speaking and listening, the more proficient you will become.
We don't just accept anyone. We are quite unique in that regard. We only accept those who prove they are serious about learning, contributing, sharing, and progressing. Complete our application, and make your case for why you'd be a great member!
Get accepted, create your profile, and make your introduction. If you can introduce yourself totally in Chinese... go for it! The more active you are and help others, the more others will actively help you too. Make efforts to help others with their dives, and look how generously they too will support yours!
After you join, you will see firsthand what an amazing community we have. So the next steps are to keep up the great participation, and then invite your friends! Be sure they bring their dreams with them. The more the merrier!
我真的很喜欢 Break Diving 的网站！当我在帮助别人学习中文的同时，我也可以向他们学习英语，简直就是一举两得。

I love being able to practice Chinese with others from around the world. 这个让我很开心！
I don't know a lot of Chinese, but I am learning, thanks to my friends here at Break Diving!
Yes, we are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity, and so basic membership and participation in our community is free. As you progress, if you want to pursue more dives, or get certified at particular levels, you can pay with earned rockets, or purchase an all-access annual membership.
Break Diving, Inc. was founded in 2016, and we just recently launched this new community in early 2019. So, invite your friends and help us grow!
Not yet, but it's in the works. In the meantime, our community is fully mobile responsive.
Yup! We expect our members to actively pursue their dreams, share in our community, and help other members. We take steps to encourage renewed participation from those who have disappeared, but if there is no success, we regularly delete the accounts of inactive members. Don't let that be you!
