I participated in one lesson for Mandarin.
It went fairly well. The repetition helped me remember until the end of the lesson, and even now (weeks later) I retain a little bit.
But, without a live person to practice with, I'm sure my pronunciation is off.
It's a great resource. Although, why not offer Cantonese, too?
I may try this service again, with other languages. I also noticed, during the other Thing, that there are podcasts for language lessons. That might be interesting, too.

ETA: I was supposed to complete three lessons?? Each Thing seems to take me an average of 3 hours. I thought I had gotten away with something when this one was shy of 2... ;) But, I think I learned enough about the service with just one lesson. I'm going to move on to the next Thing.
