Just the first few chapters of the complete course

I thought this would be a condensed version of the complete course (which I already own) so I could practice in my car on the way to/from work. But it's literally the first few chapters of the complete course. Sort of a waste. Also same audio quality issues with this that I had with the complete course.

For anyone wanting to begin learning Mandarin: I believe I have tried all the audible Chinese language books. This is by far the best place to start. Save your money and credit s and begin with this one.

Great as always

I've taken all of Paul's courses. It would be great if he and the native speakers followed up with short stories for beginners, easy and slower than what's currently available. There're good ones in German, but French, Italian and Chinese are needed; the current ones are too fast and start with too large a vocabulary. Paul could add words or explain new terms as he goes along in the story in a simular format to his courses. It'd be a great product with endless potential.

Excellent!

Loved it. Learn't lot in the two hours. Still just the beginning, but I'm feeling more comfortable speaking already.
