A Great Way to Learn Mandarin Chinese
on October 29, 2000
What a great program!! You can choose Pin Yin, Simplified Characters, or Complex Characters. There is plenty of variety: you can read, write (pin yin), speak, listen, take tests, or use a tutor. You can have the native speakers say a phrase over and over or slow their voices down. The pictures are great and the feedback instantaneous. It is easy to spend hours at a time using this program. I find it helpful to have a pin yin dictionary handy every once in a while to occasionally look up a vocabulary word. I've seen remarkable progress in a very short time. The CD has 22 lessons with over 200 more available from the manufacturer. Great product. Good price.
