    What the Critics Say

    "The first thing I noticed about this course is that the booklet is very helpful. The first few pages give tips and a pronunciation guide for Pinyin; a latinised version of Mandarin characters. It deals with everything a tourist might need to know to get by comfortably when on holiday. Well worth the money!" (K. Jamison, County Down)
    "This short Mandarin course was wonderful and within a few days I'd learnt the basics of conversation (including social etiquette surrounding such conversation). Overall, a well-formulated and easy-to-use tool for learning Mandarin." (H. Dennison, Dorset)

      "not easy"

      I'm still sturggling with learning Mandarn, but did not find this course that easy. Dowloading the booklet helped, but still... its the tones you need the ear and some knowledge of the hanyu pinyin "alphabet" to try to make sense of how to make the sounds.

      If you don't have a teacher then good luck, this is the best I've tried so far. Zai jian!

      Story
      "This has made me interested in learning languages!"

      It is truly great and the speaking was crystal clear, along with the great breakdown of the langauge and it is really useful for those who are going to China for a short holiday ( anything less than 2 weeks ) as it has all the things you will need to know such as getting drinks and food, asking where things are ( Tainanmen square , etc) and public transport.
      I would give this my highest recommendation.

      "Great! But, next?"
      What made the experience of listening to Mandarin Easy Learning Audio Course the most enjoyable?

      Great quality, not too fast, too slow, well explained


      Any additional comments?

      I really wish they had a more advanced audio book made the same way. Maybe it will come. I really hope so.
