Ressources I've been using to learn Chinese tended to be quite stale, and rather boring. maayot is a great for me to stay up-to-speed.

The best thing about how maayot teaches Chinese is how it shows a word or phrase's application in everyday speaking, and also gives insight into the ways in which language is refined for everyday conversation.
Sam K.
Getting every day a short text, along with a few new characters and grammar patterns has been tremendously helpful.
