Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

Fluenz Mandarin 1+2 was designed by a small team with a clear mission: create a language program that would get people speaking relevant Chinese faster.

Having tried other software programs and studied Mandarin in China, we designed and built the software we would have loved to have when we started learning.

At the center of Fluenz Mandarin is a real life instructor, Sonia Gil, who went to China to learn Mandarin herself and whose more than 150 video clips are embedded throughout the program. What we learned is that replicating the experience of one-on-one coaching in English, every step of the way can make all more...

I am also learning Chinese language by a special and innovative service in Beijing Chinese School (http://www.hellomandarin.com) . If you have any questions about learning Chinese, you can get a private study adviser (http://www.hellomandarin.com/program/program.html)

I like this, the program is well thought out and structured with lots of workouts after the lesson. However, the price is very high, and for less money you can get one years worth of instruction at chinesepod.com. I haven't tried the later, so I can't really give a comparison, but it is something to ponder.

Overall, this program is impressive - I'm just held back by the price.

I love this program! One of the hardest things about learning a language through software is having the consistency to actually sit down and do it. Usually boredom sets in and interest fades. Not so with this software, it has an almost video-game-addiction quality to it. The workouts build upon each other and suck you in and I constantly find myself doing "just one more" section.
My favorite feature is that in some of the workouts you can record your own voice and play it back. Being able to hear and compare your voice with the instructor's seems crucial for a language that is so tone sensitive.
The flash animations allow for clear deconstruction of the grammar, and the vocabulary consist of a very useful selection that you can put to practice immediately.
Over all its a fantastic learning experience.

I was recently in China, and I used Fluenz to prepare after trying and being frustrated with Rosetta Stone. The programs are similar in terms of scope, but I found Fluenz far more relevant in terms of the vocabulary and grammar I was learning, and the types of exercises more varied. Although it's not really a big point for me, the presentation was quite slick.

The one big drawback is that it doesn't support Intel Macs right now; lucky for me that I've stuck with my Powerbook :)
