    I’ve already used the Rosetta Stone app for mandarin, but I find myself writing down my own notes and referencing meanings online often. I chose this book because it came with a workbook that would allow me additional practice. It’s great because when writing characters the workbook will show you the order in which to enter your strokes. You also get to listen to audio online for free while following along with your book and workbook. Definitely should purchase the workbook to go with the textbook.

    Bad Audio!
    I sure would like Tuttle to explain the poor audio service provided for this book. How can I learn Mandarin from this book without audio? I sent them an email, but I have not heard back from them. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
