Learning Mandarin

This was a free first lesson to the coarse. I have no ability with languages but I managed to understand and repeat what was being said by the end of the lesson.
The downside is the long explanation in English at the start, but I'm sure the following lessons won't have that.
I'll buy some more lessons.

It would help if they told you the pinyin spelling

It's an overall great approach however when it's very hard to discern exactly what sound is being made by the speaker errors are introduced when you don't know the spelling of the transliteration. For this reason people have published transcripts online however they have been sued by the maker of this book and forced to take those transcripts offline
