    "Part 2"

    This is part two of the course. This course uses a music background with a native and English speaker going over Chinese phrases and words. The course tends to provide a sentence, in English, and then in Chinese and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. The course is similar to the other earworms courses, and if you liked one of the others I imagine you'll like this one.



    It's not a bad idea, although the tunes are not that great, I find that I can recall some of the sentences. A good supplement for learning, or for a quick fix before heading on holiday but it is not a good standalone course.

    "Actually really good and I tried so many"

    I've tried many audio formats to learn mandarin over the years and have found this one to easy and fun. I wasn't expecting so much content in terms of vocabulary. I've used Pimsluer to learn in the past, which is very good for beginners to advanced but it very repetitive and boring at times so I stopped listening. Earworm however builds in the same way through timed repetition but with music which makes it easier to remember. Some times I actually stick it on to chill out like you would music but then I'm actually learning too. Definitely one of the top performers for beginners of all levels. I brought one and two even though I am probably beyond beginner and I'm glad I did.

    "Very good."

    Very good, similar to volume 1. Has some better songs than 1 and builds on some material that was learn in volume 1 which helps. There IS text to this also. My only complaint is the limited number of volumes available now.

    "Reasonable course, occasional music mismatch"

    The content and presentation of this course is reasonable, although the music underscore sometimes gets a little funky and isn't always well matched to the spoken word. It can become irritating listening over and over, as you need to be able to do for long-term recall.

    "Extremely disappointed"

    I find this download almost useless as there is no text provided with the download. If this is typical of the audio downloads there will never be another for me.
