This is a very brief introduction and some of the phrases are possibly from students learning--it is unclear at points. You don't want to emulate a new student, of course. The instructor makes good points and does a good job of teaching the pronunciation for the most part, but some of it is silly, such as his story of "everyone in China got together and decided" how to structure verbs. He even imitates an elderly Chinese lady, which is the strangest part of it.
You learn very little as far as words go, but a lot as far as pronunciation. It is very short, and probably an introduction to the longer series after. I did like how it is all audio learning, so I could do it in the car.
