Why Learn Chinese Mandarin?

static block photo

Looking to expand your cultural knowledge or converse with locals by learning Chinese? With Pimsleur’s Mandarin lessons, you’ll soon be speaking with confidence. It all starts with the scientifically proven Pimsleur Method™, which combines graduated interval recall with innovative learning features like digital flash cards, Voice Coach AI pronunciation assistant, role-play challenges, and much more. Spoken by over one billion people, the Chinese language has two significant dialects: Mandarin and Cantonese. Mandarin is more common and the official language of the People’s Republic of China, along with Singapore and Taiwan. Also, one of just six official languages of the United Nations, Chinese is a critical language for worldwide commerce, TV shows, and other critical communication platforms.

Pimsleur enables you to thoughtfully study Chinese Mandarin on your own terms, with an effective step-by-step process that encourages a rapid learning pace in just 30 minutes per day. In no time at all, you’ll learn to speak Mandarin. With this program you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progress to a high-intermediate level of speaking and understanding. By Level 5, the pace and conversation move quite rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures as you learn Chinese, approaching native speed and comprehension.

You'll learn to speak more in-depth about your personal life and emotional state and be able to create complex sentences using a mix of tenses and moods. Pimsleur’s Mandarin lessons emphasize pronunciation, comprehension, and learning to speak Mandarin with the cadence, pace, and confidence of a native Chinese speaker.
