At least the author is very qualified. He's a PhD and the Director of the Vietnamese Language Program in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University.

I know I'm not a native speaker or anything, of course, but I have studied Mandarin for quite a few years by now, so I could probably help you with it if you need help with anything.
You could leave Arabic off your TAC if you want but still use this thread to post updates/complaints ( ) about Arabic class.

Yeah, there's also a few native speakers who are pretty active on the Chinese forum FWIR (though not so much elsewhere). There are also a few people who never post much. Oh, also ling. And Serafín! And mōdgethanc, razlem, Itikar, and Babelfish all know some Mandarin, too.
