The free audio and video recordings included with this book reinforce the content and make the learning process easy. No matter whether you’re learning Mandarin for work, travel or other reasons–the Basic Mandarin Chinese approach of having two separate but integrated “tracks” helps you to learn the language more efficiently and more successfully.
