Comments about Chinese (Mandarin), Basic:
I have been using this product in addition to learning in a classroom setting. I definitely get alot out of Pimsleur that I wouldn't necessarily get out of class. It teaches you comprehension and sentence structure. I am truly enjoying my 1/2 hour a day. Usually I try to listen to the same lesson more than once, this is really helpful. I really enjoy using this method and think most would too. Would really like to have Pimsleur 4 available as well!!
