Great beginner’s season 1 episodes

Still hoping Mark can start season 2 one of these days.

So helpful!

This instruction is very helpful! I have found the concepts are more detailed and broken down in a way that works better for me than others I have tried. Highly recommend and hope there are more installments to this series!

Conversational

I listened to Coffee Break Chinese podcast to summarize the “hotel” week of my accelerated class. I drank my favorite blend, walked around, listened and got the grade I hoped for! Thank you guys for all you do. 谢谢!
