Araken B., English Professor, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil

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'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.

Thank you! I tried a lot of Chinese learning programs before finding your site (ChinesePod, Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone) but none of them really worked too well for me. Some went too slow, some went too fast, some just kept you stuck at the same level. CLO really teaches Chinese at a great pace, with short lessons, and progressively. I love that every week you can get better and better and never feel like the jump from one lesson to the next is too big.

So far, the premium services are great!

I am really enjoying the course and find it very helpful.

It's a great idea. Here in the UK, it's difficult to hear Mandarin Chinese spoken if you don't know Chinese people personally. I am currently enrolled on a Mandarin Chinese course but find it is very book-centred. Writing and reading (pinyin and characters) is not too hard for 'visual' learners like myself but if you need practice in hearing the language, Chinese Learn Online is just ideal. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Christopher A., Teacher, Nanjing, China

I'm sure you're a busy guy so I don't want to take up too much of your time... but I did want to say how impressed I am as I explore your website. I am a recent arrivee in Nanjing, where I hope to spend the rest of my life!! I've been here six weeks, will be in Nanjing teaching for at least this coming school year, and I love the Chinese people... but I don't know more than two or three words of Chinese! So I've been looking for a self-teaching program and have explored Pimsleur, Interactive Chinese from Sinolingua, New Approaches to Learning Chinese, etc.
