my on the street speaking here in mainland China always shows immediate improvement in both vocab and pronunciation from studying with these programs, and though I'm not near Beijing - there are dialect differences including pronunciation here - it seriously improves my ability to be understood by and to understand people around me.
I'm docking one star - though really, it should not be that much of a deduction - because one of the female native speakers in the level 4 lessons is really hard to understand. And, yes, I'm used to interpreting even muddled/blurred/non-enunciated accents, and this voice is not /that/ hard to understand, but in a language learning audio lesson, it's frustrating to be repeating and parsing a word to try to determine the exact sounds I'm supposed to be imitating - e.g. was that an 'n' or an 'm' or something completely different.
Like I said, I still think these are awesome, just in a few places this one particular voice is a bit of a challenge.

This is by far one of the best Mandarin study programs I've used. I've worked through one through four. I can't wait to listen to level 5.
If I had one suggestion, it would be to include a PDF script.
