What would you recommend for a beginner? And what do you use even if you are not a beginner already?
Thanks in advance!
It depends heavily on your personal goal.
Do you just want to know the basics about Mandarin? Do you want to just be able to have basic conversations? Do you want to be completely fluent in Mandarin?
If you just want to know the basics, there are plenty of free information just a few Google searches away. However, if you want to learn anything more than that, there won't be many free materials out there that will completely meet your needs. Learning languages is about immersion, and that requires a holistic change on your lifestyle if you are even half-serious about it.
