If you've always wanted to learn Mandarin or need to learn it in a hurry, here is a quick, stress-free introduction to the basics. This 60-minute audio course features more than 300 essential Mandarin words and phrases.
A narrator guides you through the program, providing brief explanations of the foreign phrases. All you have to do is listen and repeat after the native speakers.
Brief quizzes in this interactive course help you think in Mandarin. Lessons include short dialogues so you can hear Mandarin spoken naturally. Learn both pronunciation and comprehension skills. To help with memorization, each phrase is spoken twice, with ample pauses for repetition.
A transcript with pronunciation guide is included, but the cassette may be used alone. It's easy to learn on the go: in a car, on a plane, even while walking or jogging.
