Amazing. This Course Makes Speaking Mandarin Easy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend Power Mandarin Accelerated because it's fast, it's amazingly easy, it's enjoyable and really effective.
My boyfriend's family is from China and I have struggled with Pimsleur (too few words to really communicate) Rosetta Stone (cost a fortune and makes me guess) and other methods.
None of them gave me the portable audio, the English speaking instructor and the native Mandarin speaker who taught me how to create my own sentences - I mean - speak my own thoughts in basic Mandarin in a way that Chinese people understand and without one bit of confusion.

What did you like best about this story?

What I like best about Power Mandarin is the speed, the simplicity of it all, the creative way the program is laid out, the memory review, the Audio Snapshot previews, the opportunity to hear the language spoken at different speeds, adding one word here and one word there to avoid overwhelm. Love it!

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is where I get to say I want to eat. I love Chinese food. I noticed that this program uses real Mandarin Chinese, because they usually say the word for "eat" followed by the word for "food" or "noodles". This made me sound really fluent even when I wasn't.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No way would I recommend using Power Mandarin all in one sitting. This program is meant to be used whenever you have time and wherever you happen to be at the moment. The extreme portability of Power Mandarin is one reason I wanted to try it out, and for $19.00 bucks, it's a real gem.

Any additional comments?

Real instruction, real practice, real results. There's no BS here people. This program is the real deal and you'll thank me for recommending it to you.

Greatly Simplifies an Impossible Language

Any additional comments?

I have learned to speak several languages in a basic way, mostly French and Spanish, and I never dreamed how hard Mandarin Chinese would be to speak. They have TONES and they don’t have easy cognates (similar words) to borrow from like in Spanish and French. Then there is a weird pronunciation with the tones. I tried many programs learned next to nothing and found Mandarin Chinese impossible to learn for years.
Then I tried Power Mandarin by Mark Frobose. Mark explained everything in English and then his slow speaking native Chinese speaker gave me the clear, slow repetitions that I needed to hear the difference between the tones, and then to actually pronounce the tones clearly. Then they helped me constantly remember what I learned with each lesson. My ability to speak and remember Mandarin exploded at that point.
Then I learned how put it all together to make and speak my own original sentences in Mandarin (I admit that these are basic sentences, but come on, what do you expect? – Besides, I only want basic conversation in Mandarin)
The natives I speak with at work understand everything I say and I understand them many times too.
Frobose is a language teaching genius that makes an impossible language like Mandarin easy to learn. Power Mandarin is a must buy, a first buy if you want to speak Mandarin Chinese.

Great for revision

Would you listen to Power Mandarin Accelerated again? Why?

I enjoyed this as I wanted to revise my Chinese. I would have liked it on PDF too but it was not.

Good but ...

This really does need a pdf to go with it. I'm somewhat puzzled as to why it doesn't have one? It would have made a good course even better.
