These lessons are awesome! Serge does a great job of breaking down the language into approachable, relevant lessons- they are just long enough that I feel like I learned a lot of new vocabulary, but short enough to keep my attention and to keep me motivated. His pronunciation is clear, and I really like how he also incorporates native speakers in his lessons so we can hear a variety of different accents. I also enjoy the tidbits about Chinese culture- when talking about taxis, for example, he talks about popular tourist districts in China and when introducing restaurant vocabulary, he explains different popular Chinese dishes. After listening to only 30 lessons, my boyfriend's parents- who only speak Chinese- were throughly impressed with my Chinese skills!
