Which Mandarin level should I take? 


Introductory

This fun, interactive course is designed ideally for you if you are brand new to the study of Mandarin Chinese. In this basic introduction to the language, you will learn "survival" words and phrases by means of "Pinyin," which will, in turn, enable you to reproduce the Chinese you find in travel guides such as "Lonely Planet."
