There has never been a more convenient way to learn Chinese Mandarin. With no reading or writing required you can learn on the move with the allTalk language courses.
Listen to the engaging storyline and learn with our characters as they visit China for the first time. Realistic storylines provide the perfect backdrop to help you practice and remember useful Chinese Mandarin phrases as well as developing familiarity and confidence in reading and understanding the Chinese alphabet.
The recordings are bilingual, so you can study and learn simply by listening to the lessons on the CDs, which is ideal for busy people. You can learn in the car, on a plane, or wherever and whenever you choose.
Linguaphone allTalk is different from our other language courses – there are no written materials. It can sometimes be difficult to gain an authentic accent when you can see the words in your own alphabet. Working from audio alone quickly gives you confidence in what you are hearing. It also removes the desire to ‘see’ the language before daring to use or respond to it.
