  1. THANK YOU! After listening to your Spanish podcasts religiously, I was really hoping you’d be doing a Coffee Break Chinese. I wish you the best.

  2. Yes! I am SO excited for this! I use your Coffee Break French in my classroom, and I learn Spanish myself from that series. I have been trying to learn more Mandarin, and this will be a great help!

  3. Will I be able to download the Notes/Transcripts. I am an older learner that likes pen and paper when learning something and before I purchase I want to make sure I can download and print the notes. It is too troublesome to have the video and notes open simultaneously.

    • Hi Randy. Yes, you will indeed be able to download the notes for each lesson. If you click here you can have a look at the product page for Coffee Break Chinese and you’ll see that the materials for lesson 1 are available to try. You can see the pdf lesson notes and download them and print them out. In addition to the video and bonus audio you’ll get the notes for each lesson as we publish it. Hope this helps.
