Beijing Language Tips

Learn a little bit of Chinese before you go over to China! If you're staying in hotels (even a four star) you may encounter problems with communicating with staff if you have any difficulties. A phrase book could be very handy although it may be a good idea to master a few words (with correct tones!) before you arrive.

Useful Basic words

Putonghua = "Common language" or Mandarin is the official language of China of over a billion people. It is actually a dialect originally spoken around Beijing. The basic words proved useful enough for travelers, when you first arrived in the city, and atleast allowed to locate and book in at a nearby hotel. It is not impossible to learn enough Mandarin to read the signs and speak a few simple phrases.
