Verry good. Chinese is difficult to learn but this course kept me intrested and practicing. I do recomend to print the pdfs so you can practice and keep information. Videos can be downloaded too.

This course gives you the option to learn the characters or to simply learn the pinyin. The dialogue videos and scripts are very helpful.
