These Mandarin Chinese lessons have been designed
to provide practical travel vocabulary and a foundation for basic conversational
skills through a simple listen and repeat format. Don't get frustrated
if you find some of the phrases difficult to pronounce at first. Many
of the sounds will be new, and saying them may be a challenge in the beginning.
With practice you'll soon notice your ability to recognize and produce
the sounds of Mandarin developing naturally. You may also download
a complete audio transcript for listening in your car.
