About the Author:

Dr Harold Goodman is a physician and surgeon, who had Michel Thomas as his teacher for nearly ten years. During this time Michel Thomas's goal was not to teach Dr Goodman a specific language (though he did instruct him in two of the languages he taught) but to train him to understand his method of teaching - which he then used to teach others, with great success. Dr Goodman teaches and practises in the United States.


"A genuine breakthrough in teaching Mandarin" -- The Guardian "A great way to learn; it's fast and it lasts". -- The Daily Telegraph "Five minutes into the first CD, you already feel like you're winning." -- Time Out 10/10. Within half an hour, all of my concerns about the tonal system and mastering Chinese characters had been dispelled, and the near-hypnotic delivery had me totally relaxed... For the grammar-phobic, this method is perfect. -- Sunday Times Travel Magazine 20100301 "Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed." -- The Guardian 20100301 "Thomas makes it simple" -- Sunday Times 20100301 "Michel's methods will teach you effectively and easily" -- Daily Star 20100301 "Hugely inspiring" -- Red 20100301 "Ideal for any business traveller who needs to be able to get around confidently." -- Sunday Business 20100301 Moving along at a relaxed, slow pace, punctuated by amusing anecdotes and jokes from the teacher, the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended. -- Top Real Travel Product, Real Travel 20080601 "Excellent for learning ... This entirely audio course is easy to use and quickly results in some useful ability in the new language. Great for the car." -- Adventure Travel 20080601 "A genuine breakthrough in teaching Mandarin" -- The Guardian 20080601
