I think Chinese Learn Online is definitely one of the better programs out there. It is a gradual course which takes the learner from total beginner with no previous knowledge, and builds up from there. I used several of the podcasts for a Conversational Chinese course that I taught at our local junior college, and the response from the students was very positive. The methodology is very sound, and the real advantage is that students are not overwhelmed in the beginning, nor are they permanently stuck in a lower level.

Starting with your lesson 001 presently I am following lessons 80 to 90.

My learning procedure (for the time being on PC only)
- listen the vocabulary (at Pinyin mode, fast dialog)
- listen the vocabulary (at Pinyin mode, Kirin)
- listen the vocabulary and try to read Simplified mode ( fast dialog)
- if necessary: listen single lines and try to learn by heart

- listen (and read) Complete Lesson, especially for additional explanations and background information.
- listen and answer Premium podcast

For my learning, the most useful Features are the Premium Podcasts.

I've been with you for about 2 months and I think your course is the best available !

I'm interested in Chinese culture. I spend about an hour and a half each day commuting by car, and I was looking for something to do with that time rather than waste it. I hit upon learning Mandarin via podcasts. I think I found your site by a random Google search. I tried "chinesepod"... they are good too, but because your approach is much more progressive I'm learning a lot more from you, and it's sticking !

I am very fond of your site and your online course. The podcasts are top notch and I listen to them every day. The website is also very well done. I will be a long-time user/listener and feel that Adam and Kirin are personal mentors of mine.

I like diversity of cultures and for me learning Chinese gives me a chance to explore China's culture. I plan to learn as much as I can over the next year as a basis for travelling to China some time in the future. The calligraphy is also something that draws me to the language.

I think your Chinese lessons are fantastic. I am learning a lot listening to it spoken and the written form that goes with it helps as well because what you think your hearing is not necessarily right. The two together work really well. I love it.
