Explore the city while heightening your written and spoken Mandarin skills

Dive headfirst into an experience that will help you master the four elusive tones of Mandarin.

Of course, the best way to distinguish these subtle differences and expand your Putonghua is to use it everyday—which you will do in the schools, restaurants and attractions in Beijing—with written exercises and language labs that will help you to naturally converse with native speakers.
