"I have been teaching middle school Chinese to American students for about 5 years. So far, in my opinion, Kuai Le Han Yu is the best teaching material available for the group that I teach. The Text book, flash cards,audio CD, and the CD Rom work together can provide students a interesting, engaging and comprehensible Chinese learning experience." - Marinda from Philadelphia
