View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In just 75 minutes you can learn enough Mandarin Chinese to get by on your holiday.

Elisabeth Smith has used her wide teaching experience to write a fun audio course that teaches you enough to communicate all your basic needs. The course comes on one 75-minute CD and teaches only the essential words and phrases, which are extended by the use of body language. The accompanying booklet lists the words and phrases taught on the recording - a written record of what has been learned.

The action takes place during a flight from London to China. Following a challenge from the passenger in the next seat to her, Elisabeth Smith agrees to teach him enough Mandarin Chinese to be able to get around on his holiday. The dialogue is broken up by in-flight announcements, meals and drinks being served and even some turbulence.
Now fully updated to make your language learning experience fun and interactive. You can still rely on the benefits of a top language teacher and our years of teaching experience, but now with added learning features within the course and online.

Tests in the book and online to keep track of your progress.

Extra online articles at: to give you a richer understanding of the culture and history of China.

Innovative exercises illustrate what you’ve learnt and how to use it.
