If you want to learn Chinese, here are a few tried and true resources to get you started.
The original, the one I started with back in 2006, is still around. It charges $14 a month for the basic subscription. If you subscribe for a month, you can download MP3 lessons, and the PDF files that go along with them. Then you can cancel your account, and just use the lessons you downloaded.
- Subscribe 1/month $14
- Download MP3s and PDFs
- Listen to one to three MP3s a week, and read along in PDF printout
- Listen multiple times, and speak along while memorizing the sentences.
This is a good podcast for the younger learner. I listened to it for a while and found some of the English pronunciation to be quite amusing.
6 Months for $19.98
Rather fair price and I’m sure you could download most of them and use them for a longer time.
These are my own recommendations, try them out and let me know what you think. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
