CLO is progressive so it helps reminding the bases and the written language (thanks to the new feature that teaches how to write the characters). It is also a real online "tutor", and everyone knows that repetition is the only way to learn a foreign language with efficiency. I also use Chinesepod as a complement for spoken language. I think these two chinese podcasts should not be considered as competitors, but as complementary tools. I hadn't spoken chinese for three years until I found your website. I am so happy to recover my former level and even more.

I decided to start learning Chinese about 11 months ago. I'm doing it mostly for fun and personal satisfaction. I find the culture and language very interesting and would love to be able to take a trip some day. I would like to eventually be fluent, so I will keep on truckin'.

I love this site! I love this site! I can't believe I've never known about you guys. Great lessons; I found exactly what I was searching for in lesson four, and I think I might have found something I wasn't necessarily searching for: effective and easy-to-use lessons for learning Mandarin. I've tried audio CD's before, but your method of mixing the audio with Pinyin is perfect. That was the missing link. I couldn't see what the word was supposed to sound like, so I was always insecure about my pronounciation. But not anymore. I think I'm hooked!

I stumbled upon this excellently programmed podcast back in Spring and I am ever so glad that I did, because I think it is one of the major reasons for my improved listening ability. One of the things I believe Stanford’s program doesn’t get right is the listening speed. We learnt grammar properly, vocabulary was good and we spoke about as fast as beginners at our level ought to, but we sucked at listening. This is because the teacher always spoke at a slower-than-normal speed which we could easily understand.

I bought a 3x download course from you a few weeks ago. I have finished with all the lessons in level 3, and am halfway through level 4. I just wanted to give you a bit of feedback to the program.

I must admit, I am very impressed with the level and professionality of the course. Some of the things I particularly like (in no apparent order):

- Building on previous lessons, both in vocab and in continuing going over the same topic for 2-3 lessons to let it sink in. Eg.
