Learn Mandarin Chinese
Learn Mandarin Chinese for Travel and Beginners. Within this guide you will find useful words and phrases in Mandarin and English, along with audio recorded by native speakers. This guide can be read on a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.
This guide was inspired by the following question: what language is needed from and for real life? Grammar and vocabulary out of context will not be found here. While these things are important for creating with language (intermediate learners) they are of little use for everyday communication for the beginning-level learner. Use the guide to understand, practice and speak. This is how languages are learned and people grow their skills and levels of proficiency. Work on these words and phrases while you are in the novice range. You will start to make connections, and learn and understand grammar and vocabulary, all in context. Learn enough words and phrases, and then you will begin to move into the intermediate level where you can make your own phrases and sentences.
Pay attention to the written language here. Reading a language like Mandarin takes a great deal of time. My suggestion at this level is to put your focus on communicating using the phrases, regardless of how rudimentary it might feel. As you practice and review these words and phrases, you will start to make connections. You didn’t memorize symbols when you started speaking English. You communicated first orally, and then you learned what English looked like as you learned to read. Reading opened up a great deal of knowledge to you, but it didn’t teach you basic communicative skills.
The numbers you see embedded in the word and phrases signify tones. Focus on the sounds you hear in the audio. You will make connections with what the tones sound like.
Mandarin for Travel and Beginners is organized into communicative tasks. You will learn language for the airport, hotel, restaurants, shopping, emergencies, getting around, meeting and greeting and useful phrases. Links to the downloadable free audio is available inside the guide. I highly recommend downloading the audio and creating your own playlists to learn languages to create a completely personalized language learning experience. As you become more fluent, there will be more language to learn to use in different situations.
