Is there anything helpful on Spotify for beginners learning Mandarin Chinese?

I have heard there are some resources for learning foreign languages on spotify. I would guess there may be audio tapes and possibly lessons? Has anyone used Spotify for these things? Did you find anything good or helpful for beginners level? * Is there anything helpful for people past the beginners level?

Hi, maybe you could try the apps recommended in this website: https://www.douban.com/note/611291763/ .

I'm curious, may I know why you learn Mandarin Chinese?

I have always found languages in general interesting. I am often discouraged from the idea. I would often give up any language before I got to try them. People still tell me "Don't bother" or suggesting French as I am in Canada.

However each time I come back to the idea of learning another language, Mandarin Chinese is where I find myself. I guess it had a strong impression. It is unmistakably different and beautiful. There is just something that pulls me to trying to this language.

  • It seems like it may be one of the more useful languages, but for me that is not really part of why I wish to learn.

great talk! you learn Chinese for interest. Actually, Chinese is indeed a beautiful language, especially for its artistic conception. A few characters can create an incredible scene, like: 一江明月一江秋, which describes a beautiful scenery: there a reflection of the moon on a river in autumn, with only 7 characters.

Very interesting! It does look beautiful but I have less experience in this area. Even with very little learned, I have noticed Chinese at times seems more efficient. I am not sure if this will change as I learn more. Still, I have noticed how messy the English language can be!

Why Spotify? Why not Itunes?

The short answer is I use Spotify out of convince. I use it for my desktop as well as my mobile phone. I just do not own any of products from them currently. Now this just brings back old memories of the first few computers I can remember using, like the old Macintosh Classic! : D

iSyncr allows you to sync your iTunes library from a PC or Mac including: iTunes playlists, music, podcasts, videos (non-DRM) and more. I have never tried this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=iTunes.Sync.Android&hl=en_US

Assuming this works, you wouldn't need an Apple product.

Oh wonderful! I will look into this. It may be a great way to open some doors! I would also like to thank you for the Spotify links!
