China has become a major tourist destination and savvy travelers recognize that they often struggle with pronunciation and proper tone that can dramatically change the meaning of what appears to be the same word. Mandarin is one of the most complex languages in the world with four tones that distinguish the meaning of a word from other similar-sounding words; these books offer ease and convenience for building Mandarin and English conversational confidence because of their excellence in pronunciation and tone.
”Our new Chinese Talking Travel Guidebook set is a complete package for anyone wanting to enhance their travel experience whether for business or pleasure. Language students and teachers have also told us our product is an effective supplement to their Chinese courses," said John Stacey, Vice President of Parrot Learning. "It's exciting knowing this product will help overcome communication hurdles while increasing understanding of China’s rich culture."
Whether a business traveler, tourist with a casual interest or a serious student of Mandarin, The Chinese Talking Travel Guidebook with The Parrot Learning Audio Pen Reader is a must-have.
