Wanted to add a website for Mandarin:


FluentFlix hosts videos by level, and shows pinyin and english subtitles frame by frame. It also has the ability to pin phrases that you are unfamiliar with, so you can review in a separate list later.


I've only evaluated it at the intermediate level (it has beginner/intermediate/advanced) , but I think it has good potential if you already understand some Chinese phrases. It's also good training for listening to native speech because it uses videos from PRC and Taiwan. The speech is fast, so it may be overwhelming/frustrating for beginners.

For Chinese, this blog post has several suggestions that I hadn't seen before.



It notes that Beginning level (up to 300 chars) material is limited, but does give some book suggestions. For Intermediate and Advanced, there are several suggestions. In particular, I found the suggestion to search for "Chinese Edition" on Amazon useful. I found some Kindle eBooks that way. Since Chinese books are expensive to buy within the US, this seems promising (but I do hope the selection increases).
