Publisher's Summary

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 five official languages of the United Nations.

Chinese (Mandarin) Phase 4, Units 1-30, is a new 30-unit course designed to be completed after Mandarin Phase 3. Thirty 30-minute lessons, totaling 15 hours of spoken Mandarin language learning, plus one hour of Culture Notes, are included. These Notes are designed to provide you with a deeper understanding of Chinese culture, as well as to expand upon topics discussed in the course. Phase 4 builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur's Mandarin Phases 1-3. You'll be speaking and understanding Mandarin with near-fluency and with a broad range of conversational skills. In Phase 4 the pace and conversation moves more rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures, and approaching native speed and comprehension. You’ll learn to speak about your professional and personal life, needs, likes and dislikes, and to create complex sentences.

A few of the topics included in Chinese (Mandarin) Phase 4, Units 1-30: Business, Personal Life, Activities, Food, Vacationing, Important Topics (such as allergies, food likes and dislikes), and Understanding the Chinese.
