Hey, so I am trying to learn mandarin on my own for now! I am not able to take any Chinese classes nor is their any native Chinese speakers near me. I am literally on my own personally. I do not know much about mandarin and I don't really know where to start. I have been looking at Cpods tone lessons. I have gotten through the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd tone. I am having a bit of trouble with my 2nd and 3rd though. (If you are willing to skype and help me learn the basics, if need be I can help you with English as I am a native speaker . My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org)
Okay so where do you guys suggest I start at? I will just need to learn how to speak/talk chinese for now and do not need to learn the characters right now. Should I try to remeber the Chinese alphabet and pinyin? My goal is to become fluent in mandarin Chinese. In a few months I will be taking college classes on this langauge. Thanks
