Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 Windows 1.1, Next-Generation Chinese Language Learning Software

Image of Learn Mandarin: Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 for Mac, PC, and iPhone
Publisher: Fluenz
Operating System: Windows Vista
Price: $357.00
Summary:
"Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 was designed by a small team with a clear mission: create a language program that would get people speaking Chinese as quickly as possible. Having tried other software programs and studied Mandarin in China, we designed and built the software we would have loved to have when we started learning. At the center of Fluenz Mandarin is a real life instructor, Sonia Gil, who went to China to learn Mandarin herself and whose more than 125 video clips are embedded throughout the program. What we learned is that replicating the experience of one-on-one coaching in English, every step of the way can make all the difference when you try to learn a language. As with anything, knowing what’s going on and where you’re going helps you follow any program."
