Hi Alex,

Yes, I have received all the audios and videos… thanks for asking. I have started the lessons and they are great.

I have bought several Chinese language books, tapes and CD’s in the past but have made very little progress trying to learn to speak,read and write all at once.

However, with your lessons and methods, the language is actually sinking in!!!

ChinaSpeak is by far the best language system I have ever seen, and I have tried many!

I viewed your practice lesson teaching us 3 words (the Nihao video) and was convinced you were the teacher I wanted. After buying your course, I can speak Chinese!

I absorbed the lessons very quickly. I rarely played them twice, your teaching method of word association worked amazingly well for me. I also found what a nice guy you are, your personal note and trinket in the package made it that much more personal and special.

I also found how much my Chinese friends loved me being able to speak a bit! I liked everything in the course to be honest, I was sad to be out of lessons!

Specifically I have to again say the way you associate an English word to a Chinese word. No-one else that I have met does that. It was really enjoyable, I have never enjoyed language studies as I never related to the material. You speak slowly, clearly and give us a chance to repeat with you. Really helped to absorb. You teach really practical things, it was all applicable and put to use right away.

I absolutely would recommend ChinaSpeak. It made learning Chinese so much fun I wanted to keep learning. I saw so much progress in myself and my Chinese friends agreed!

ChinaSpeak is by far the best language system I have ever seen, and I have tried many!

I would love to see more course packages added, my thirst for learning is far from quenched. After completing my course I did not know where to turn for additional instruction.

My main concern was that it would be too difficult to learn, but it wasn't

Nihao Alex, so sorry I haven't been in touch with you for some time.

Mal (my partner) and I started the course very keenly and were very surprised how easy and fun you made learning.

We were planning to go to China later this year, but we had a visit from my son Drew and his wife Dora (who live in Beijing) last month for 3 weeks, which was just wonderful.

I had downloaded the course onto my IPod and showed them and they were impressed with the way you had set out the course. Mal and I found the DVDs very interesting and you made it fun to learn and the different ways that you explained the differences in Chinese and English were very useful learning phrases that would be useful when travelling in China are very helpful and relevant.

I found that I was able after a while to put a couple of sentences together. I thought I was pretty clever.

Now to answer your questions: My main concern was that it would be too difficult to learn, but it wasn't.

You made it very interesting and fairly easy. I was very pleased that I had found your course on the web that you explained the way you teach people Chinese is often different from others and I found your way very good -- the way you made it fun and easy.

Other benefits about the course would be that you are able to put sentences together so that you could have a conversation with somebody.

I would definitely recommend China Speak to anybody wishing to learn Chinese as it wasn't too expensive and your way of teaching is excellent.

I have now taken 2 lessons and I am already saying full sentences...

November 2004

I will be traveling to China in two months time and thought it would be a good idea to learn some of the language to help me get by.

I got in touch with Alex from ChinaSpeak, who gave me a demonstration on how he teaches with no paper and no pens. I first thought it was a little unusual to learn this way but a week after his free demonstration I still remembered everything he had taught me.

I have now taken 2 lessons and I am already saying full sentences. I feel confident that with a few more lessons I will have no problems traveling through China speaking and understanding Chinese.

I found Alex to be a very good teacher, more like talking to an old friend. I feel very relaxed while he teaches and find that he brings a playful element to teaching, which helps me learn.

Alex’s training is first-rate. I highly recommend him to anybody interested in learning Chinese.

If you want to try something that works, you should give Alex a go

When I first encountered ChinaSpeak I was a bit sceptical…
but now that I have fully experienced it for a number of weeks I recommend it to anyone who wants to speak Mandarin. The 3 key things that make this different from other courses are:
+ Friendly intimate style - the class sizes are small so you get to develop a real rapport with him, who can adjust to your personality and focus on you as an individual
+ Improved learning retention - with the individual attention and the focus on getting key content right during each lesson, my retention of what has been taught is much higher than my experience through community college courses
+ Flexibility - Working in a managerial position means I cannot always stick to a schedule as much as I would like to. With Alex, there is greater flexibility to fit things into my schedule and therefore ensure I can relax and learn rather than worrying about what is happening at work
If you want to try something that works, you should give Alex a go.

My expectations re: learning were not hopeful as I have learnt other languages (Japanese, Italian, Indonesian) with minimal recall.

However Alex's enthusiasm for teaching + the helpful CDs were great, as was the insistence by Alex not to use pen + paper.

This forced me to learn!! + use my poor memory =)

Even Months After The Course Finished, I Can Still Remember Whole Sentences!

I went into the ChinaSpeak courses thinking that it would be a little difficult to achieve some of the claims that were advertised, such as to be able to actually speak a sentence after one hour (and actually remember it for days afterwards!)

However I was greatly surprised to discover that not only did I learn Chinese at an astonishing rate, I really enjoyed myself and was able to speak confidently in Chinese quite quickly. Even months after the course finished, I can still remember whole sentences!

Alex is really an amazing teacher and I owe him so much for helping me learn this difficult language! His teaching style and methods really help students to grasp and remember many useful words and sentence patterns.

I can now speak simple sentences with my Chinese friends comfortably, and I truly look forward to learning more from ChinaSpeak courses.

Alex has really sparked a determination in me to continue trying to master this language! I want to travel to China someday to test my speaking abilities, and it is my dream job to work with languages.

Thank you Alex for starting me along the path to learning Chinese!

Advice to readers: Just relax and feel comfortable during these courses, they don’t require intense study to learn this at all – it’s a very natural learning process that is simultaneously enjoyable.

Also if you get the chance to practice your newfound skills outside of the ChinaSpeak environment, such as with friends, go for it! It’s a great way to reiterate what you have learnt…

Nihao Alex, I am very good, thank you.

At the beginning my speaking muscles were finding it a challenge to wrap my tongue around the words, but with practice, that too is improving. Compared with other ‘European’ languages, I am finding Chinese far more interesting!

Yes, I am enjoying making my way through the video series. So far, I worked through upto segment 11. As I learn to listen more closely, I find it easier to pick up the tones associated with each word. At first I was barely aware of them, but as time goes on it becomes easier.

On some occasions I have gone looking for the pinyin spelling to help wrap my mind around the word.

Thank you for the offer of a phone call, I’d like that as I make my way towards the end of the series.

Audio MP3’s were much better than Berlitz

Video lessons were very helpful – learning individual Mandarin words and putting them together into different sentences and contexts reinforced the words and was a lot easier than rote learning.

Using imagery helped the words stick in my mind!

MP3’s were much better than Berlitz. They went more slowly and supported the video lessons.

It was great to go to dinner – put it into context and speaking to the waiters made it more realistic.
