Different Pimsleur Chinese Mandarin audio courses are available. Compare to see which is suitable for you based on your budget.

For your convenience, I've provided links to individual Pimsleur products to display the best prices online, along with consumer reviews.

All the Pimsleur Mandarin courses are good, but I'll give my recommendations for the Chinese beginner. Go with Comphrensive course I or Instant Conversation if you want to it out.

The comphehensive course is more expensive than the Instant Conversation -- but you can find great discounts online, just click on the links.

As a sampler, I suggest Instant Conversation with 16 lessons over the Quick & Simple with 8 leassons. With just eight lessons what you'll learn is pretty limited.
