Filmed on location in Beijing, mostly at Peking University, these naturalistic video clips, ranging from less than one minute to eight minutes in length and consisting chiefly of unrehearsed interviews of ordinary folk, offer valuable source material for Chinese language teachers and learners at all levels. Six topic areas are represented: personal information, commercial transactions, travel and leisure, health and sports, food, and school.
Dr. Tim Murphey of Kanda University in Japan offers inventive ways to teach any language at all levels from young children through university using near peer role modeling (NPRM), song and music, group dynamics, even juggling! Dr. Murphey's information is invaluable and his enthusiasm infectious.
