    Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I'm loving the Pimsleur method! In just a few lessons my Chinese pronunciation has improved dramatically in ways that never happened while in Chinese school as a kid!

    My only issue with the Chinese ones is that the main male voice sounds like Kermit the Frog! It's just an unfortunate coincidence. But I do find it distracting because as I'm trying to mimic his pronunciation I can't help but to also throw in the Kermit! The narrator sounds so proud as he sings out the phrases in Kermit-speak too.

    I have to remove a star for that. Otherwise it's pretty great.

    Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I listen to the lessons while riding my bike every day and they are my perfect companion. In the way they are designed, they stimulate my thinking and thus make it easier to memorize the language constructions. I regularly repeat each lesson several times to perfect the pronunciation.

    Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I drive to work daily from LA to Orange County. Its 1.25 hrs each way. I manage international teams.

    I love how well the recordings are engineered, the sound quality is great, the course could not be more perfect for me. I am so impressed at how I am really understanding the language, and I enjoy the process.

    One distinct thing would drastically improve my experience. The purchasing of these recordings is outdated and therefore frustrating. I have to go to the Pimsleur website on my computer, then buy, then download, then I place it in my dropbox, then I had to get an app that plays recordings from dropbox. If there was a Pimsleur player app, or these were available as audiobooks on Audible, it would be PERFECT. Audible does a great job with a great interface. If you made an app for my droid which stored my CC info in my account, then suggested the next in the series to purchase, I would consume Pimsleur languages like a fat man eats potato chips and soda.

    Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I use this product to learn Chinese while I commute to and from work. The lessons are interesting, engaging and effective. My husband, whose mother tongue is Chinese, is impressed at the speed of my progress.
    As a primarily visual learner, I would love to have some notes associated with the program, so that I could refer back to them when i can't remember a word. Searching through audio material is very challenging.

    Comments about Chinese (Man) Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I listen to my lessons in my car on my way to work. The method is very systematic that allows me to learn step by step without too much effort. It is logical, and works. In my recen trip to China I applied what I've learned thus far, and people understood me.
