If you’re a new arrival to Beijing, you’ve come to the right place to learn Mandarin Chinese. Beijing is the home of ‘standard putonghua’—Mandarin that is spoken with a phonology based on the Beijing dialect. However, Beijing is extremely diverse, with residents and visitors from all over China and the world, so you’ll hear a wide variety of accents spoken as you make your way through the landmarks, shops and streets of Beijing.

The more you’re able to communicate and integrate into the local scene, the happier you’ll feel about living in Beijing.
