Book Description


Not just another audio language program, the On the Move series features an engaging, natural approach to language learning ideally suited for today’s hurry-up world. Unlike other audio programs that feature dreary drill formats and seemingly endless word lists, these innovative programs convey all the vitality and color of the cultures in which the languages are spoken. A lively narrator guides listeners through each course, at times meeting up with two other native speakers who take part in an unfolding story line that encompasses an array of everyday subjects, from meeting people, eating, dining, and shopping to getting around town, telling stories, and family relationships.

Each package features:

  • Three 60-minute audio CDs
  • A 32-page listening guide
  • Sound effects, language games, and an engaging story line
  • Dozens of unscripted conversations that introduce key words and phrases as they’re really spoken

On The Move is Awesome!, September 2, 2005
Reviewer: Joseph Mclaughlin (San Francisco)

Chinese On The Move is a lively, sound effect and rock riff filled language CD that gets the listener into the Chinese language right away. Most students will supplement their studies with classes and thick textbooks; if so, this CD will be judged for what it is: a tool focusing the student on the phrases and vocabulary suitable for a beginner. The speakers are smart and concise and the CD is very enjoyable. For me listening to Chinese On The Move has been time well spent for getting back into the language after two courses and two years off.

Can be useful, better when you also use Pimsleur, June 18, 2005

Reviewer: George (USA)

Being a "devotee" of the Pimsleur method of learning languages, I inevitably compare all other products to that.

These CDs provide quite a bit of good information and explanation, the speech is very clear, and the vocabulary and phrases are refreshingly useful after working through ten Pimsleur CDs talking about how I would like to order two beers. (And I still couldn't introduce myself...)

But the Pimsleur methodology can't be beat and is much better at building a language structure upon which you expand. In CHINESE on the Move, the instructors are so busy blabbing and explaining that you don't end up speaking very much yourself, even though they tell you to.

Suggestion: Do the Pimsleur Intro first, then use these as an extremely valuable supplement.
