    "Awesome"

    - It works.
    - Listening to it enough times, it will allow you form sentences and enhance listening comprehension.
    - I recommend that you also study grammar at the same time because without some grammar background, it will just be words, and you wont understand why things are spoken the way they are.

    "inacurate"

    this program gives you phrases but does not tell you the literal meanings of the words. For example they say the Chinese word for Hi is Nee How. Which really means You Well. I find it difficult to truly lean the language by parroting phrases and not really knowing exactly what they are saying, how can you take this to another level if you don't really know what you said. So for me this method is a one star.

    "Totally and utterly useless and incomprehensible"

    This is not suitable for learning. It is a series of phrases spoken in English, then Mandarin. They are unrelated, so there is no logic to the sequence. The sentences don't even start shorter. You leap straight into lengthy sentences. I couldn't remember the words by the end of the sentence, let alone pronounce them properly. There is no build-up, no explanation, just phrase after unrelated phrase. It is impossible to learn a single thing in this manner. I can't even remember '1, 2, 3' and that was the easiest one.
