Publisher's Summary

Start speaking Chinese in minutes, and grasp the language, culture, and customs in just minutes more with Beginner - Chinese, a completely new way to learn Chinese with ease! Beginner - Chinese will have you speaking with proper pronunciation from the very first lesson and arm you with cultural insight and other information to utterly shock and amaze your Chinese friends.

Why are the audio lessons so effective? They're short and to the point – 25 eight-minute lessons make them the perfect length. You'll receive a syllable-by-syllable breakdown of each word and phrase, so that you can say every word and phrase instantly. You'll repeat after the professional teacher, so that you can practice proper pronunciation. Quick cultural tips in each lesson will help you navigate your way even better. And above all, this is a fun and relaxed approach to grasping a lot of information quickly and easily. You'll effortlessly learn from a bi-lingual and bi-cultural host as they guide you through pitfalls and pleasures of Chinese.

You see, unlike other audiobooks, we actually teach both Chinese and Chinese culture. With each lesson, you will master a target phrase and key vocabulary. This is a complete lesson taught by a professional, bi-lingual teacher! Listen to the preview now! This is NOT a vocabulary audiobook with just words and their translations. These 25 short and effective audio lessons will allow you to:

  • Speak Chinese within minutes of your first lesson
  • Understand the culture, customs, and people of China
  • Order the food you want in restaurants
  • Travel in taxis, trains, buses, and cars with confidence

Very good

I listen to this over and over. Through each repetition more and more of the language sinks in.
