Elie B., Belgium

Just want to say you're doing a wonderful job here!

I've lived in Beijing for a year, but since I'm back home last summer and started working, I didn't find the time to study Chinese anymore. Thanks to your podcast I'm picking it up again.

Keep up the great work.

Adrian K., I.T. and Business Consultant, Singapore

I've been learning Chinese characters for a couple of years (after I learned Japanese for a while). Reading simplified characters is therefore relatively easy for me, but there is a big gap to my listening and speaking skills, incl. usage of grammar.

What I like most about Chinese Learn Online is really the English-to-Chinese practice, something others (incl. ChinesePod) don't have enough of even though it is THE key skill I believe. The more is really the better here. I just feel the CLO approach is more organized, at least it helped me more.

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.

My name is Araken and I am a student of Chinese Mandarin and also a Linguist. Congratulations for your excellent Course. The materials are firstclass! ...My interest for Mandarin Chinese increases as I study it persistently. A friend of mine indicated your site and I immediately became interested. Your methodology is quite comprehensive and it includes important linguistic aspects of modern teaching. Please accept again my congratulations for your respectable efforts in helping people learn mandarin.

I started listening to your podcast when you first started, maybe a week or two behind. I just returned from China. Your lessons helped a lot. I gave listened to a lot of Chinese lessons and I really like yours. I like the way you describe each individual words with literal translations. I did not realize you just started learning 3 years ago until today when I heard the lesson. What I like about your lessons is your precise, deliberate pronunciation of each word.
