Full transcript is provided to assist learning. From key words and phrases, you can see how words and phrases are used to build a sentence. Repetition is used to reinforce these words, phrases and sentences. Also included is Hanyu Pinyin, which is the official system to transcribe Chinese characters into Latin script.
Whether you are a beginner or you have studied Chinese, whether you are self-taught or have a tutor, this is a powerful self-teaching tool for reading, writing and listening comprehension. It is certainly a teaching system for educators. Recording can be conveniently played for students in the classroom, or children who are in bed longing for more story time, or travelers who have a few minutes transitioning between flights.
