I have seen some wonderful CDs designed for English learners among kindergarteners. They were pr ...

I think I could do with one of those CDs  as my Mandarin is "challenged" to put it politely. So far my best CD comes from EuroTalk Interactive - Talk Now. The only issue is that even if I can regularly achieve a 95% accuracy in pronunciation according to the tool on this CD, my wife and other Sichuan people stubbornly refuse to understand me. If I then travel on Air China the stewardesses look blankly at me if I use Sichuan pronunciation. English is much more civilised because it has origins in a lot of the European languages unless I travel to somewhere like Glasgow or the Bronx where they ritually abuse pronunciation just to wind up outsiders.

I suspect something like that is happening in Sichuan since I have yet to meet a group of six people from Sichuan who can achieve anything close to a common standard of pronunciation even if they individually take turns repeating the same word. I think where they succeed in communication is by using the word in a sentence comprised of other Chinese words so that they are using key words as one would when speed reading.

Do you mean to say because you are native Chinese speakers your CHinese is above criticism? I do ...

I dont mean people who was born in China, who is able to speak Chinese are all would be a  Chinese language master.
As I said that, It doesn't mean people could be Mr. Zhao since they speak Chinese.

The feel you mentioned about english, I am pretty sure that's from the language your are surrounded. Teachers play important role out there.
You said when you are ready. it is time to learn the detail,  what time is the specific ready time?
I am afraid there is no ready time for language learning.
