I'm a newbie at learning Mandarin but have found lots of useful sites, blogs and apps that all seem to help a lot. I came across a site called which caters its teaching style to more of a colloquial dialogue so instead of learning how to say "Hi, how are you today sir?" you can learn how to say "Whats up?" or "How's it hanging bro?"

I'm a big fan of the blog "Fluent in 3 months" The guy Benny that runs the blog has lots of practical advice on how to learn languages and he is very unbiased in his reviews of language learning sites or products. Definitely a good one to check out.

For apps, "Learn Chinese Easily" has been nice for me because I'm still learning some basic vocab and characters. After I get the hang of things I downloaded an app called "Mandarin Tap" which looks a bit more advanced and as of now is a bit intimidating but I do like the layout and how the lessons are organized.

Hope it helps!
