I would like to learn Arabic, Mandarin, or Farsi. If money is not a problem, is this a good method of quickly learning a new foreign language? I have read great reviews on the site but not so good as well as good reviews from other sites. Thanks so much and God bless you!

What is the best website to learn Mandarin?

I know it’s a difficult language to learn.

I don’t have a lot of money and I want a site that will tech vocabulary, grammar,and tones.Everything.

ok if you look at my last question before this, you’ll understand what i’m talking about =s

1. China is not even a developed country. It is dirty both inside and outside, not to mention the horrible Chinese parenting that the middle 20th century has carried along to the 21st century. My parents are Chinese, they are the exact echo of their own parents. They are people who put money first before love. They are extremely greedy people, who CONSTANTLY pin us down into studying our arses off and getting a good job as the common DOCTOR, LAWYER, SOLICITOR to get money and "LOOK AFTER ME WHEN I GROW OLD." Let alone the amount of racism towards every other race just vibing off that crappy country.

2. The streets are dirty, you look at the roads, and you know that this ain’t a proper civilized community. People do not wear seat belts in their cars when they are in the back seat, people cross the road whenever they like, and sometimes walk in the middle of the road along with the cars, like it is PATHWAY. People spit everywhere, air is polluted, and extremely crowded.

For such a dirty, uncivilized country, how could one even think of mentioning the possibility of China dominating Earth in 10 years?

im English educated chinese guy and i dont know how to read or write but i know how to speak mandarin. what i afraid is that chinese language will be the international language soon as china is getting greater and better. i already feel upset that i dont know chinese and i heard from a friend said that chinese is getting popular so she gonna let his children to learn chinese in the future.

and i know some of u will say that i can still learn mandarin and etc but i dont have such time and such money to learn. it costs almost 0 per month to learn to write and read mandarin.
so, is it true? chinese/mandarin language will become the international language soon?

How to learn mandarin ?

i just mainly want to learn how to speak and understanding mandarin, not so much writing it [cuz it’s wayy too hard] Is it possible for me to learn how to speak and understand mandarin without learning how to write ? and im just a student [16 years old] so i don’t have money to buy expensive books or look for a lesson cause it cost too much, i want to learn it by myself, any tips for that ? I aslo watch a lot of taiwanese movie but i can only learn some basic stuffs from it, please help i really want to learn.

and i am not chinese so i don’t really know anything except for some basic stuffs i get from movies. and also how long do you think it will take me before i can speak/understand it fluently ?

Besides a class too expensive, I just want to know what the fastest most efficient way to learn it is. I want to go to China but no money.

SOMEBODY WHO SPEAKS MANDARIN CHINESE PLEASE HELP?

can you please translate this paragraph (characters or pinyin, whatever is easier):

My older sister likes to shop. She bought a white shirt two weeks ago. Last week she bought a pair of blue pants. She liked them very much, so yesterday she bought another pair. She said she would like a pair of black shoes. This afternoon she’ll go out shopping again. She really has a lot of money.

Thanks!

Learn Mandarin – ad in National Geographic?

Hi, two part question:

Has anyone learned Mandarin via CD-ROMs? No class instruction. Can one actually do that and do authentic chinese people actually understand you without problems?

Does someone have experience using that ‘learn languages’ program, the ad which is always in National Geographic (sorry don’t remember the name of the ad)? Is it worth the money? Does anyone know the name of the company of the ad which I am talking about?

thanks in advance

haha okay this is a little dumb but I NEED to learn Mandarin in three weeks (even just the basics so I can understand some and talk a little) but I don’t have money for enrolling in some language schools so I think someone here can help me. Please I’m begging you 😉 Anyway, thanks in advance !!! I’m online almost everyday from two to four hours… (if that info help) usually during 12 pm onwards.

Who can speak Mandarin? In need of translator?

I want someone to translate Show Luo or Fei Lun Hai’s videos…=]
Is someone willing enough?

What is the best thing to use to learn Mandarin?

I am looking for a comprehensive book or tool, but I really don’t have the money for the Rozeta Stone version. Are there any other good ways to learn to read, write(not completely necessary), and speak well?

Who can speak Mandarin? PLEASE READ!?

I am a new fan of Fahrenheit (Fei Lun Hai) and Luo Zhi Xiang. Unfortunately, I do not speak nor understand Mandarin but that doesn’t stop me from liking FRH and Show.

Now, I am looking for a translator who could help me translate FRH/Show videos every now and then. I am willing to pay some money and give you an offer. However, I’m only in High school, so I can’t afford a very expensive amount.

I hope someone would reply to this and help me. If you live in US, it would be easier too cause I reside in the US and if I need to pay you it’s faster.

PLEASE PM OR RESPOND TO ME!
