Any good links/resources for learning Mandarin?

Anything from books to podcasts to software etc. 



Popup Chinese (Google it), Pleco for your phone, and some dedication. That's all you need, and you need all of it!

I recommend these books " new practical chinese reader" 

There are five books with CD and excercise.

Maybe you can find a pdf version and mp3

It is a good book to learn Chinese from beginner to intermediate.


The explanation is in English, I think it is helpful for you.



PopupChinese is very good, as mentioned above. In the listening space, there is also ChinesePod and Melynks - which you can both find on iTunes.

Pleco is a fantastic app dictionary. Qingwen is another option. is a good web option.

For more visual learning, has hundreds of videos to watch.

New Practical Chinese Reader, as mentioned above, is solid [but a bit dull].

Memrise is also a super vocab tool.


Recently there was a hot movie in China called American Dream in China.It's about three young people start their business which teaches Chinese students speak English. Very encouraging and interesting I think.
