Learn Mandarin Chinese

Though English is considered a global lingua franca, there are more speakers worldwide of any Chinese language than of English; sometimes it's not so bad to blend into the crowd. Your personalized experience through the Mandarin Chinese course delivers a blend of learning features, exercises, and personalized review with an award-winning conversational learning process that focuses on the four skills necessary to connect in another language; grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and culture. Building on learned material presented in diverse contexts prepares you to start the conversation with confidence. Challenge yourself to learn something new.

 

Grammar

No interpretation is created equal. Grammar Notes, color-coding, and features that focus on specific grammatical nuances between target and source language strengthens your understanding of the Mandarin language structure.

Culture

Etiquette, body language, gestures — set the mood. Culture Notes provide a backdrop to learning material and let the Chinese culture come alive, setting you up to forge deeper connections with the Mandarin language.

Vocabulary

Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.

Pronunciation

Didn’t catch that? Hear it again at a conversational speed, hover over for phonetics, or click on the word for an articulated narration. Tone your accent against native speaker audio by activating the voice comparison tool.

Listening

Develop your ear for Mandarin. Rewind and repeat as you need to through listening passages read by native speakers, or read along as you go, and listen for context clues that will help you answer questions that challenge you recall what you just heard.

Reading

Pick up on new new vocabulary and assess your comprehension through reading material that presents new words in the context of learned material, with optional accompanying audio read by native speakers.

Mango Review System

Your personal course progress powers algorithms that work behind the scenes, setting aside learned material to review, at your pace, that maintain retention and ensure what you’re learning is committed to memory.
