Perfect guide

This audiobook is amazing for anyone looking to go from beginner to advanced Chinese. It emphasizes audio and tons of exercises, making it ideal for self-study. I used this item a few summers ago to keep up with my Chinese and by the time I turned, I was ready to test out of 2 of my Chinese classes!

Good for beginners

This allows you to not only learn the word but also to pick up the word in maybe a new sentence construct.

Easy to follow,

This is a very user-friendly program. I hope I had decided before Zhan Yin. Save yourself a lot of money, pain, time, headache, failure, and disappointment, and try Living Language before investing in anything else.

GREAT GUIDE

As an intro to practical, conversational Chinese, this is excellent. The reward is that it also provides you a sign of the deeper artistic dimensions within classical poems, available even for beginners.
