Learn Chinese in China

Learn Chinese with Chinese radio international


Recommended Posts


Some of my favorite listening material for learning Chinese can be found on CRI's site, Learn Chinese Now and Chinese Studio. The lessons are short and contain lots of useful vocabulary and phrases:


Unfortunately, they have only made them available in streaming WMA, but there is a workaround: there are programs that allow you to turn the streaming WMA into regular, unprotected WMA files. The one I use is Net Transport, available at http://www.xi-soft.com/default.htm.This piece of software even allows you to download the lessons in batch mode.

Happy listening :)

I recommend Learn Chinese Now. I found the structure of the course and the fact that full transcripts are avaliable made it ideal for beginers like me. Also the course is quite large, 200 lessons.

Now that I have finished I am looking around at what to do next. Is there anyone else who has finished this course who can point me to something appropriate?

This can't be the "Learn Chinese Now" course from Transparent Languages, right? That's only a 2 CD set, with limited # of courses, according to Amazon.com.

What specific course are you referring to?

Thanks to Jockster! I've been finding Learn Chinese Now very useful. One things been bugging me though. At the beginning of every lesson there's a short clip and I can't understand the last part. It goes:

Ni hao, ni hao, ni hao, da jia hao, da jia hao...wan shi ru yi

What does that last part mean? "Wan shi ru yi". I hope that pinyin's right!
