Your course is excellent and I have been doing the medium level materials for well over one year now. I also believe that it has improved my 听力。

The best thing about how maayot teaches Chinese is how it shows a word or phrase's application in everyday speaking, and also gives insight into the ways in which language is refined for everyday conversation.

Getting every day a short text, along with a few new characters and grammar patterns has been tremendously helpful.
