    "Pretty disappointing"

    Sorry, but I can't recommend this to a beginner trying to learn Chinese. On the positive side, the two teachers (one American, one Chinese) are fun to listen to when they're chatting about Chinese culture. But the language instruction, which is only 20% or so of the tapes, is pretty poor. It's not something you can listen to in the car, because the instructors don't lead you through a learning process. They just say the words once or twice, and that's it. If you're just starting out and looking for something to listen to in the car, jogging or whatever, check out YoYo Chinese instead.
