Good as all the Rest.

Just like the previous lessons I enjoyed this one as well. Same criticisms as always. The units are not long enough to justify the cost & they don't explain sentence structure very well. Other than that I learn all the words fairly easily & am able to move onto the next unit. I had some trouble with learning the directions. Again that comes down to them not explaining why they use certain words vs others very well, but I eventually figured it out. I do notice my word retention is not as good as some other Chinese courses I have taken, but it is definitely good enough for me to keep using this program.

excellent method of learning Mandarin

What made the experience of listening to Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 21-25 the most enjoyable?

It was an excellent progressive learning tool. Easy to follow

Would you ever listen to anything by Pimsleur again?

Yes definitely
I will progress through all the tapes

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was not a book or STORY

Any additional comments?

I would like a practical dictionary or list of words to match the tapes to visualize the words as they are pronounced on the cd

Pimsleurs is truly the best!

Pimsleurs is the best way to learn language besides immersion. It has enriched my life in amazing ways. Please tell your friends.
