Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

I am learning Mandarin. I am also a very technical person. When I'm learning a new language, I like to know what all the articles are, pronouns, and all that grammar stuff. I tried Rosetta Stone once, and I did learn a lot. But I struggled with it because while I knew what I was basically saying from a picture, I had no idea which part of the sentence was "the" and stuff like that. I'll probably go back to it when I'm ready to learn to read Chinese. Anyway, I like this approach because the guide explains what exactly you're saying and breaks everything down. Besides, I'm an auditory learner, so this is working out better for me anyway. Another great thing about it is that you don't have to buy the entire course at once, spending hundreds of dollars on something you're not even sure about! I like that I can purchase the lessons bit by bit as I need them. My pocket appreciates that! Also, I LOVE that I do not have to wait until I get home to crank up the computer to do my lessons! With the mobile app I can do my lessons anytime, anywhere. I also love that the advancement is not based on grades. With Rosetta Stone, I made "good grades" but I didn't completely understand the lesson. I was just good at spitting stuff back. I like being able to control when I advance--not when the computer thinks I'm ready. I've done the first lesson twice, and moved on to the second, but I'm going to go back to the first lesson again. I also like that the lessons are only 30 minutes. I always felt like the lessons on the other program took FOREVER! It was one reason that lead to me ditching it.

Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

This audio session for Mandarin Chinese was so helpful, it makes learning a language convenient. I was also a lot of fun, the first for lessons are very easy, but things really start to pick up in Unit 5 so be aware, you may have to listen to that one a few times.
I wish they had some visual curriculum available to go with the audio as an option to change things up from time to time.

    this program works with the individual who really wants to learn a new language, much better than wasting time in front of a tv, learning very little
