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.
