Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.
This course includes Lessons 11-15 from the Chinese (Mandarin) Level 1 program featuring 2.5 hours of language instruction. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Mandarin Chinese.

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 (Man) Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

    I have worked through Lessons 1-10 until my participation in those conversations is "automatic". I get the sense of the conversation without having to translate word for word or analyze the grammar. I am doing the same with Lessons 11-15 and it keeps getting easier.

    Service and delivery comments:

    This product serves my needs, as is.

      Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

      I listen to one lesson each day while I'm running. I often go back and review a set of five lessons when I finish them before ordering the next set. They are excellent for learning how to speak the language. I'm sitting in on a Chinese class right now and learning how to write the characters. This is something that, of course, cannot be done with an audio program. I think that I'm way ahead of my class in speaking skills thanks to the Pimsleur program.
