Critic reviews

"More than I ever managed in five years of French at school." (Tom Meltzer on Paul Noble's books, The Guardian)

"I seemed to absorb the phrases taught, without even consciously trying, and quickly felt confident enough to make my own sentences." (Penelope M. Walsh, Canary Wharf Magazine

A great way to learn on the go

This course really clearly explains some of the basics of Mandarin Chinese. I thought it would be extremely difficult to learn without constantly looking at a book or reference materials but the way this course works is to get you to understand through repetition throughout the course. I was impressed with the audio sample and half way through the fist part, I purchased the rest of the series and per-ordered the follow up.

My only criticism of this would be that this first installment just seems to suddenly stop as if I was sold one CD out of three. This makes it disappointing as a stand alone piece. I would have liked to have purchased this as part of a complete set but the complete course was unavailable to me. But since I bought all three parts and I am continuing to enjoy part 2 I am satisfied with my purchase.
