    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. <br/>

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

    Yes, but not the Taster books.
