    "SCAM!!!!!!"

    March 14, 2011  |   By jcboston69

    Version: Learn Chinese and Speak Mandarin 2.7

    Pros

    None, none, and NONE!

    Cons

    No service at all.

    Summary

    Signed up for this program online a week ago. I liked the demo and it looked pretty slick and comprehensive.

    They charged the ~$45 to my credit card but DID NOT get access to the site (which the downloadable client needs to verify your account).

    I sent several support requests through the online form and got no response.

    I replied to the email confirmation of the charge to my credit card. Nothing.

    I called my credit card company to try to reverse the charge, and they refused. They found a telephone number in New Hampshire for the company, Covantis, which was listed NOWHERE on the site, and told me I need to call them. I have called several times and got no answer, just an answering machine that sounded like the personal answering machine of some backwoods bumpkin in a double-wide, "Hello. We're not in right now. Please leave a name and number and we'll get back to you."

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.

    "Lesser value than other options"

    August 19, 2008  |   By going2china

    Version: Learn Chinese and Speak Mandarin 2.7

    Pros

    The phrases taught are useful, and this might be of interest to someone new to Chinese.

    Cons

    The way the phrases are introduced and taught is not very conducive to efficient learning. I would recommend using more structure. Check the progressive approach used by LearnChineseEZ.com to see what I mean.

    "confusing and of limited value"

    September 2, 2007  |   By gorae

    Version: Learn Chinese and Speak Mandarin 2.7

    Pros

    the dictionary and phrases log are useful as in character library

    Cons

    pronunciation is highly questionable on many words. I do not believe this is standard Beijing Mandarin as there is no other Manadrin resources that pronounce some words the way this program does. Many sentences are spoken so quickly the words are slurred and the slowed down version is a pathetic joke!

    "Ok for an average person who doesn't know any Chinese"

    December 7, 2006  |   By abcinchina

    Version: Learn Chinese and Speak Mandarin 2.7

    Pros

    Has a good dictionary using simplified Chinese while listing them in frequency. So you can study the characters that are used most. There are also many common phrases that you can find the appropriate translation for. I guess its good for conversational Chinese

    Cons

    Not good for Chinese speakers who just need to learn how to read Chinese characters. The Flash Card system (as well as the whole system) is online-based which is just too slow. For this purpose I downloaded CueCard and had to manually input them in the free program.

    *Most importantly, they will not give you back the refund within their given time-line. Also, there is no number to call them to cancel and when you follow the online instructions to cancel and send them a postal mail following their instructions, they will not give you back the money. Then if you send them a support email telling that that you've submitted the request for a refund within the time-line, you will get no response. I suppose you must dispute it from your credit card at this point, in which I just said "forget it"

    "Don't download unless you got 50 bucks burning a hole in your pocket."

    April 17, 2006  |   By Music Pirate

    Version: Learn Chinese and Speak Mandarin 2.7

    Pros

    None.

    Cons

    Just to try if for the 30 days you have send them 50 bucks. Then they said money back guarantee, but who knows. I wouldn't recommened this unless you got 50 bucks to kill. I don't even no if it works because I'm not paying 50 bucks to just try something.
