Chinese (Mandarin) Phase 4, Units 1-30 is a new 30-unit course designed to be completed after Mandarin phase 3. Thirty 30-minute lessons, totaling 15 hours of spoken Mandarin language learning, plus one hour of culture notes, are included. These notes are designed to provide you with a deeper understanding of Chinese culture as well as to expand upon topics discussed in the course. Phase 4 builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur's Mandarin phases 1-3. You'll be speaking and understanding Mandarin with near fluency and with a broad range of conversational skills. In phase 4 the pace and conversation moves more rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures and approaching native speed and comprehension. You'll learn to speak about your professional and personal lives, needs, and likes and dislikes and to create complex sentences.
A few of the topics included in Chinese (Mandarin) Phase 4, Units 1-30: business, personal life, activities, food, vacationing, important topics (such as allergies, food likes and dislikes), and understanding the Chinese.

Pimsleur is a great tool for language learning
my on the street speaking here in mainland China always shows immediate improvement in both vocab and pronunciation from studying with these programs, and though I'm not near Beijing - there are dialect differences including pronunciation here - it seriously improves my ability to be understood by and to understand people around me.
I'm docking one star - though really, it should not be that much of a deduction - because one of the female native speakers in the level 4 lessons is really hard to understand. And, yes, I'm used to interpreting even muddled/blurred/non-enunciated accents, and this voice is not /that/ hard to understand, but in a language learning audio lesson, it's frustrating to be repeating and parsing a word to try to determine the exact sounds I'm supposed to be imitating - e.g. was that an 'n' or an 'm' or something completely different.
Like I said, I still think these are awesome, just in a few places this one particular voice is a bit of a challenge.
