Thank you! I tried a lot of Chinese learning programs before finding your site (ChinesePod, Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone) but none of them really worked too well for me. Some went too slow, some went too fast, some just kept you stuck at the same level. CLO really teaches Chinese at a great pace, with short lessons, and progressively. I love that every week you can get better and better and never feel like the jump from one lesson to the next is too big.
So far, the premium services are great! I think if there’s one thing that the original podcasts lacked, it was an opportunity to practice producing the language, which the review podcasts and practice exercises do wonderfully.
