Praise for Mike The coolest Chinese teacher out there. Totally rad!! confusedlaowai.com Like a rock star teacher. Excellent for beginners. Entertaining too! socialmandarin.com As an instructor, I have found Prof. Hainzinger's teaching material was very practical; it was very easy to be inserted into our classroom activities because of its fragmented structural style, and its companying video files. In addition, the students really appreciated the lively style of the text, as well the vivid video contributions. Yuxiang Liu Lecturer in Chinese, EALC The University of Chicago

During the last 30 years she has taught French to English children, English to Zambian students, German at evening classes and Italian to her daughter "just for fun".Since moving to Spain she had to learn Spanish in a hurry - cutting across traditional learning methods. This gave her the inspiration for thehighly successful "Teach Yourself Instant..." series currently offering eight titles with a further four to be published in early 2001.Elisabeth Smith now lives in Marbella like a "proper" author with a volatile PC and two cats.
