The Mandarin Chinese Language
Over one billion people speak Chinese. The two most common dialects are Mandarin and Cantonese. They are not mutually intelligible. Mandarin is the official language in Mainland China, Taiwan, and Singapore. The Mandarin dialect is used in most Chinese schools, and in most TV programs, movies, and radio stations throughout the country, even in Guangzhou (formerly Canton), where people speak Cantonese in their daily lives. Mandarin is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Comments about Chinese (Mandarin), Basic:
I have been using this product in addition to learning in a classroom setting. I definitely get alot out of Pimsleur that I wouldn't necessarily get out of class. It teaches you comprehension and sentence structure. I am truly enjoying my 1/2 hour a day. Usually I try to listen to the same lesson more than once, this is really helpful. I really enjoy using this method and think most would too. Would really like to have Pimsleur 4 available as well!!
