These are things that I can't get with any other program, where most others don't go any deeper into the language comprehension than just the meaning of words.

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