    Wow

    Such a big improvement. From zero Mandarin to sentences such as "I wanted to go to the park but my girlfriend wouldn't let me."
    I think I'll buy the real one.

    Disappointing

    Most disappointing book I've choosen in 3 years. I was looking for help with Manderin, and didn't read closly enough that there was nothing in this book. taught me 0 words of manderin for 1 credit. why do you have samples of books on the site, and no full book. extremely disappointing.

    Good overview of method

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have more practical opportunities, after all, that is what the method claims, that it can get you talking the language quickly.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Michel Thomas? Why or why not?

    Yes, but not the Taster books.
