There are countless books in Chinese, which teach you wisdom and intelligence.There are huge business opportunities in China as she is the largest developing country and she is changing and growing every day. There are so many beautiful natural or historic scenes which you may like to visit. Wherever you live, you may find you have some kinds of relationship with China and Chinese people in your daily life. In short, there are lots of reasons that you should start to learn Chinese right now. Fortunately, you have already made the right decision!
imandarinpod.com is run by a team in Tianjin, China, which consists of several rich experienced teachers who have been teaching Chinese as a foreign language for many years. Besides teaching Chinese in a classroom on a daily basis, we realize that podcasting is another approach to learn a foreign language.
There are a lot of ways to learn Chinese, and most people take Chinese classes, which is very important. We do provide class-based lessons in Tianjin, China, and we welcome you to join them. However, not everybody has an opportunity to take a class. For example, you may not be able to travel, or it is too expensive, or there are no local Chinese classes, just to list a few.
If you are among those who cannot take a class, or have already taken a class and want to continue to improve your Chinese or have already studied Chinese as a second language and want to learn Chinese culture as well, iMandarinPod.com is right for you.
iMandarinPod.com is designed to help people to improve their Chinese. In each podcast, we will introduce a topic about Chinese culture or what is happening today in China. We are not teaching a pure language (yes, we do explain vocabulary words, phrases, sentences and grammar points in each podcast), and we are teaching Chinese by introducing Chinese culture under real circumstances, and we are teaching you how to speak and how to think in your daily life as a native Chinese does.
Podcasts are really amazing. They are convenient, flexible and portable. With an iPod or any other MP3 player, you are able to learn Chinese whenever and wherever. In addition, you are able to learn Chinese at your own pace.
We will provide at least 3 podcasts every week and will continue to enhance our service to serve different people at different levels. Besides podcasts, we also provide private lessons or group lessons (2-4 people), which are on-demand service. Lessons will be conducted via the internet (for example, skype) and instructed by our rich experienced teachers. Please contact us for the details.
Please sign up, and we will keep you informed.
We hope iMandarinPod.com will become your premier place to learn Chinese and Chinese culture.
Please contact us if you have any questions. Please tell us what you like, what you don't like, and how we can improve our service. Your feedback is very important to us. We are more than happy to listen to you!
