"A good quick fix"
Like any of the language courses, you get out what you put in. 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.
The music in the back ground is slightly annoying at first but after a while you get hooked and it somehow helps you commit the language to memory. I have some mandarin already but haven't spoken or used the language in 15 years or so. I found it very helpful.
