5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic, March 25, 2012
This review is from: CHINESE in 10 minutes a day® with CD-ROM (Paperback)
.

If you were intimidated about learning Mandarin Chinese, this book and CD Program will alleviate a great deal of your fears. Everyone should start with this book.

Of course, if you do your research, you will discover that Chinese has quite a few dialects.
The Chinese I have befriended spoke the Cantonese Dialect. However, Mandarin Chinese is the "official" language of China.
Those who speak other Chinese Dialects, will recognize most of the Mandarin.

Okay, so the great thing is the CD Program. Huge vocabulary cards appear on your screen, and you get to here the Mandarin word pronounced, and you match it with one of three English words, like matching "Ta" for either He, or She, or It. You can "flip" the cards for different order too. That is a menu option.

You can learn colors in Mandarin Chinese, and the book is full of many basic phrases for social contexts. I am quite excited about this.

In the past, I have examined many websites which offer free lessons, and they were useful, but this book and CD is so much of a simpler and better introduction for English Speakers.

I am really looking forward to practicing with some of the local Chinese.

Oh, and did I mention that even children can learn with this? Yes they can.
