Thirty reading and audio lessons of Mandarin conversation with English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French translation. Romanization (transliteration) of the Chinese characters is in zhuyin (phonetic symbols). Conversations cover greeting, introduction, school, shopping, family, etc. Some content opens in Chinese. If this happens, go to http://www.ocac.gov.tw/others/chinese.htm first.

Speak Mandarin in 500 Words is a lesson by lesson speaking and listening site. It covers mainly the most basic vocabulary and expressions in every day conversation. The pronunciation of audio files and the grammar of the conversations are correct. I have spent about 2 hours listening to almost every dialogue, and I have found it a nice supplement to my Chinese Speaking class. I will strongly recommend it to my students.

Technical Remarks:

This site uses Real Player. Both the audio files and text files are very well created and set up, clear and easy to use. Features of concern: This site uses Traditional Chinese characters and Zhu Yin Fu Hao. The concern is that many students are learning Simplified Characters and are using Pinyin, they may not be able to use the site.
