    "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.

    "Amazing program for the price"
    Any additional comments?

    Power Mandarin totally demystified spoken Mandarin for me. For years I have tried to speak & understand this beautiful yet amazingly complex language.
    I am thrilled at how quickly I have been able to speak and understand large sections of Mandarin by using Mark's techniques. It's such a simple approach. First of all, you relax because Mark is telling you what everything means in plain English. Then, the native Mandarin speaker from Beijing slowly speaks to you in her language. So personal, so clear. And then, of course there's the practice sections that make sure that "you really get it". Amazing program for the price. The only one that worked for me.

    "Works!!"

    I feel like I've really learned something with this audio book. The repetition really helps you memorize the words -- and tones!! I'll never try to learn another language without going first to audio books. This is my first language audio book and I really loved Mark Frobose's approach. He made it simple and mixes in lots of review. It's a great, enjoyable way to learn.

    Story
    "Pretty Awful and Annoying way to learn Chinese"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A robot. The speaker is incredibly monotonous and hard to listen to. The material is definitely 'Accelerated' - to the point where a new sentence is gone over once, quickly, and then you are expected to know and remember it. To make things worse, there are repeated breaks where he congratulates you: "Wow, you're really learning a lot!"


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Frobose again?

    Maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Frobose’s performances?

    Absolutely not.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The "Native Speaker" (Can you just give her a name and call her that?) had


    Any additional comments?

    I've bought a lot of books from audible and this is by far one of the hardest to get through, which is unfortunate because learning a new language really requires effective instruction. There are no chapters in the audio file, or even bookend chapters in the book. It's one long conversation making it difficult to rewind, fast forward to go back over certain parts after they breeze through them too fast. I really wish I could return this and try something else, but no go.

    "Great source for me"

    I liked the method and the repeatings. I missed the written form in pinyin. Great

    "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.
