Chinese in 10 minutes a day  Jul 6, 2008
The Kershul method of learning is a great way to learn a new language. I took this method of language learning to help me learn Russian well over twenty years ago and I still remember much of the course curriculum. I would recommend this method of learning as a supplement to actual immersion training for everyone.
A good book for adults and children  Jun 4, 2008
I use this book to learn Chinese along with 10 others. When I get bored from using other Chinese book, I will come back to this one. It's simple to use for both adults and young children.
fantastic book  Mar 7, 2007
not enough said about this book, it takes you from basics to conversation.
Children's picture book for the deluded  Jul 23, 2006
The title really speaks for itself. I was desperate to learn Chinese quickly for travel, was up late, read the reviews, flipped out and bought it. Another romance language if you know one in 10 minutes a day maybe, Chinese if you speak English from a book without audio-not so much....

Let's review the logistics. They don't read English so you can't point to it. You don't read Chinese so you're looking at pictures (not when driving to work). So after dinner you paste romanized Chinese words around the house. Time's up. The next day you memorize a few words that may have a different meaning from the one you intend because you don't have audio phonetics and its a tonal language. Gotta go. The next day, you forget evrything because you only spent 10 minutes and you can't relate it to English. You do the math.

The approach reminds me of the Monty Python skit, where Hungarian tries to buy cigarettes using a phrasebook that inspires him to say "my hovercraft is full of eels" .

And as to the reviews, we don't laugh at Clark Griswold for saying "look at how greatful the French are when we make the slightest effort to speak the language...." because other countries are more grateful when we try to butcher their language. We laugh because he buys "French on the airplane" and believes it works. On the way to China, you're tired, you drink, its crowded, you don't read Chinese, unlike French, they can't read this book, you take out "Chinese in 10 minutes a day" on a 17 hour flight, oops that's my day. Exaggeration, but not by much.
You would either have to grow old or land in Hong Kong!
good to start a basic vocab and concept  Jul 1, 2006
This was a good book to start a basic vocab and concept of what would later be studied in the Chinese language. I use this book very frequently to start learning a new language and, the only thing that would be missing would be an audio guide to the book. Pronunciation in Chinese is very essential to the word and understanding of the language.
