A good program but...

I downloaded Dr. Blair's Mandarin Chinese and found this to be a good application in assisting with a very difficult language. It's worth a download if you are staring out in Mandarin but I could have done without the "pirate" story. I could have used more Mandarin phrases as opposed a story line that is frustrating to keep fast forwarding through. Regardless, I would recommend it.

fun and practical

I found these introductory lessons entertaining and a very easy way to learn chinese. There are alot of mnemonic devices used to help the words stick and there is a good balance of vocabulary with grammar. It's not a traveller's phrase book but there is more everyday conversational language. I agree with the other reviewers that the pirate story does not add much to the learning process but they never ask you "do you want to pet my tiger". I've gotten alot out of repeated listening.

Creative language learning

I love this approach. Really great creating a senario and having you work your way through a situation. I would recommend this book. Fun, funny and effective.

I don't think this is a good as it claims. There is no booklet, I think, so it makes it more difficult. If you think you can learn in 3 months then good luck to you! I doubt anyone will understand much of what you are trying to say, but perhaps you are more of a natural linguist than me!
