Ready to Learn Chinese, but not sure where to start? Then you're in luck! Our free "Introduction to Mandarin Chinese" tutorial is going to give you a broad foundational grasp of the principles behind Mandarin Chinese, just as it's been doing for tens of thousands of other visitors since 1998.
In these pages we're going to answer some of the questions that beginning learners typically have...but that seldom get addressed by teachers or textbooks in elementary classes. Then, once you understand better how the Chinese language is "put together," you should be able to progress much faster in your language learning journey.
We strive to accomplish all this, however, in everyday language, not academese. We don't go into the granular details you might find in introductory linguistics courses, or the useless facts that might show up on pop quizzes. After all, you shouldn't need a Ph.D. in Linguistics just to begin learning a new language!
So what about it?
