YouTube Chinese video lessons

Postby chinesewithmike » 07 Jun 2011, 14:54

I've put together a free video series of learn Mandarin videos on YouTube. If you're a beginner, have a look. If you know a beginner, have a look as well! Hope it helps.

Thank you Mike, very useful for beginners like me. If there are any working pinyin tts (text to speech) engines, one would have almost everything together, for learning a little more without any teacher, assuming found any useful beginner books with enough pinyin examples.

A few of the Pinyin explanations are strange, as if they were filtered through zhuyin fuhao (e.g., "u + eng = ong" in lesson 6). And it's important to note that an initial plus a final is not necessarily a "word."

But from glancing through the videos they look useful. Thanks for making them available.
