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), Q&S:

This program is stellar. I've used Rosetta Stone for German, and this is by far much quicker and much more comprehensive. Dr. Pimsleur deserves all of our commendations for this somewhat obvious, yet not explored, version.HOWEVER!!! I would suggest buying unit 1 (lessons 1-30) instead of this, as these are the same lessons, and my [$] could have bought half a stock in Toyota.
