Hi YangYang! Great presentation of the character course! You have vanquished my fear of learning Chinese! I am becoming comfortable with basic conversation, and I expect learning the characters from you to be a piece of cake! Thank you for your efficient, practical, and entertaining approach. Jāiyóu!

Yang Yang, saying 'thank-you' seems so pathetically inadequate.. Never before have I looked forward to learning as I do with your lessons. I amaze myself and my friends with what I have learned already.. All thanks to you.. Ian

It's a real pleasure to listen to you. You explain things so well with such a sweet voice that even the most difficult things will appear easier than they are actually. The visuals are so well synchronized with your explanations apart from being imaginative and so well thought out in their presentation that it will make learning a pleasurable adventure into the characters which seem at first sight a daunting task. Furthermore, I like the new learning environment very much.

I know around a thousand characters, but I don't know how characters work. I just memorize how they and their pronunciation
