Essentially this is a great resource. I would give it a five star if they made two changes to the program.

1) Give the mandarin three times in a row (with different voices). This is because the brain imprint maximum impact for learning occurs with three repetitions in a row. I think another product does this, but that product does not have anywhere near the quantity of vocabulary terms.

2) Give the Traditional Mandarin character alongside the simplified. This is important for anyone where the traditional characters are used instead of simplified.

Each level has about 1500 words and phrases. You can listen to one part of one side of a tape/cd file for less than 20 minutes and repeatedly drill yourself on 170 words. This is very helpful. After ten or fifteen times of doing this you will recognize most of the words and eventually build a strong vocabulary. Each level has 1500 words, so if you learn all three levels you will be seriously on your way to speaking decent Mandarin. These are a mix of nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs and expressions. Many of the words are commonly used so the selection is very practical (unlike Rosetta Stone which starts out with elephant). In essence this is an audio flash card file. If you don't mind listening to it for awhile, you can just turn it on while you are browsing or doing something else and allow words to become introduced to you. If you repeat that over and over you will start recognizing more and more terms. And if you want to focus on the words, rather than absorb them in the background, you can pull out the booklet and read along. They give the English, Simplified Character and then Pin Yin. I find it very helpful. In about 18 minutes you get an audio flash card drill of 170 words or so.

The Baroque music, which plays in the background and is intended to enhance your focus, concentratin and retention of the words, doesn't run throughout the recordings, but comes and goes. The reasoning behind this, when they were creating these recordings was that if the music is played all along, you may drift too deep into a trance (I don't think that's bad for learning, though), and that it would be better if you stay closer to the conscious level.

Trying to consciously remember all the words as they are poured out may be too much, but you can have the recordings also play in the background while you're doing other things. It will help to impress them upon your subconscious mind and you may just find yourself enjoying increased comprehension; and then you'll eventually find yourself using these words with greater ease.

Each level contains 1,500 words and it will definitely help you to rapidly increase your vocabulary
