During the course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teacher Harold Goodman and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. The revolutionary method for learning Mandarin tones used in this course links movement and colours and will enable you to effortlessly recall tones at the proper moment in your communication. Tested and refined on students without any previous knowledge of Mandarin, it is specifically designed to address all styles of language learning (visual, kinaesthetic, auditory, etc.). You learn through your own language, so there's no stress, and no anxiety. You'll stick with it because you'll love it. Why is the method so successful? The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization, so you progress rapidly. What's in the Course? Perfect Mandarin Chinese with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 7 hours of audio on CD and a practice CD-ROM with interactive activities and assessment which should be done after the course and as a means of review. It also includes the complete Vocabulary Builder+ 3-hour course. *Note that this course contains the same learning as the previously entitled Advanced course and previous editions of the Perfect Course. The CD-ROM is a new addition. Learn anywhere Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player. Where do I go next? Insider's Mandarin Chinese phase 2 Michel Thomas course will be available soon. It is the ideal package for intermediate learners looking to improve their conversational Mandarin, grammar and vocabulary in authentic contexts. Please check back more
