Learn Chinese

I would like to welcome you to the Chinese lessons. I'm here to help you learn Chinese, by going step by step. All the lessons contain audio and are all offered for free. We will learn the alphabet together. We will also review some simple grammar rules, practice common phrases, and we will have fun memorizing many important vocabulary lists, and everything else that you see below.

You can either choose a random lesson below or start with me lesson by lesson. If so, let's start with the alphabet.

Tips:

When the Mandarin group is taken as one language, as is often done in academic literature, it has more native speakers (nearly a billion) than does any other language.

Mandarin or Guānhuà means literally "speech of officials". In everyday English, "Mandarin" refers to Standard Chinese, which is often called simply "Chinese". Standard Chinese is based on the particular Mandarin dialect spoken in Beijing.
