I think that you are doing an excellent job, and your pedagogical concept is sound. I actually learned quite a bit, while working with
your material.

Stephen J., Systems Engineer, USA

I am a System Engineer for a US firm that sells in Asia. On my last trip to China, I was frustrated by the business dinners which are spoken exclusively in Mandarin while I sit silent. Chineselearnonline.com was exactly what I needed to decide to seriously try to learn the language. I had to recently go back to the beginning when I decided I wanted to also learn characters but I am back to level 5 now.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn on your site. It has really had a major influence on my engineering skills and my work ethic.

Thank you so much for these wonderful podcasts. They are clear, organized, thoughtful, and marvelous. I went to Beijing once in 1998 and have always wanted to go back. Im returning in sept for a bit and wanted to learn some chinese. I took chinese in college so its a review with some vocabulary. I have a bachelors degree in psychology. I really like the way you break it down into literal translations and help us learn about why word combinations mean new words.

I think your course is well organised and is great for beginners as well as more advanced. I've only listened to about 30 lessons so far. I like that at any time I can review lessons. It's also great to be listening to native speakers. Unfortunately there is no short cut to learning a new language especially when it comes to tonal Asian languages. Conversation context is great.

Seeing the pinyin makes a big difference. I like to picture it in my head when composing sentences and having the tones works helps a lot. Your product is great! Especially now I can visualise the tones.

Thorough explanation of each new word as it arrives in each lesson. Emphasis on, 'see and hear' , motivation tips, hints, cultural backround. Lesson notes etc. Emphasis on tones, which aids listening and pronunciation. Literal translation of dialogue, which helps with grasping grammar and aids memory. Creative combinations of new words and phrases (for a beginner), which reinforces lessons. What has pleasantly surprised me is the ability to use of your site for each lesson. You are well postioned to become a real choice for learning Chinese...
