HASH(0x8ffed120) out of 5 stars Fun, easy and effective, even if you're not a kid 14 Jan. 2009
By D. Altman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm in my 50s and an absolute beginner at Cantonese. The speakers are clear and easy to follow, the words and conversations are useful right from the start, and the 30 minute format is manageable. I play the disks on my way to work.

Each lesson incorporates what you learned on previous disks into the new conversations, so there's plenty of reinforcement while you learn new words and sentences--no need to feel overwhelmed. I'm on Lesson 9, and on a recent visit to Chinatown I was already able to understand some words and phrases.

A little booklet tells you how to use the disks and how you'll know when you're ready to advance to the next lesson. Although the instructions suggest one lesson per day, I find I usually need 3-5 plays for each lesson before I feel I'm ready. You might need more or less repetitions. I feel confident that I'll be "conversational" in basic Cantonese in a few weeks.

I'm really pleased with this product.

HASH(0x8ffeab94) out of 5 stars Started learning at age 21 in college, now studying again at age 51 14 Aug. 2006

Although the conversational Cantonese used is correct...many of the word phrases could be greatly improved with more commonplace word usage and phrases. A small written booklet - written in the romanized Yale system for conversational Cantonese would be most help for those of us 21yrs. and older:who's native tongue is English.

HASH(0x90156f84) out of 5 stars I'm glad I found it! 25 Dec. 2012

I have found myself in a situation where it would be helpful to learn Mandarin, Cantanese and Hakka. Rossetta Stone has an excellant Mandarin course but no Cantonese. This system I have found to be easier and less frustrating than Rossetta Stone. The speakers can be easily understood and and explaination is given before and after each lesson. So no waiting a few repetitions before half way figuring out what the people are saying. It is a quick and simple way to learn. My wife was thrilled that I spoke to her in Cantonese in a short couple of weeks that she could understand. Her statement was " You have a better tongue for Cantonese than Mandarin.' I was happy. Get it you'll be happy for it!

The pimsleur is the best way for me to start learning a language. I'm not the best with languages, but this method gets me up and running the fastest. The Cantonese version did not disappoint. I just wish there were more lessons. Please, take my money!

HASH(0x8ffeaba0) out of 5 stars Too painfully slow to maintain interest 30 Aug. 2008
By alice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've listened to many a language tape for several languages, and while I've never adored any of them, this one is just too painful to listen to. The first few discs consist of a voice saying a phrase, then silence while you repeat, then another phrase, silence, then back to the old phrase, silence, etc. Lots of long pauses and repetition, which could be helpful for someone, but was completely unappealing and boring for me.
