I'll leave this for the moment, but I'm smelling link spam. Especially since a) there is no English site content, other than link titles, which doesn't make it very useful for English-speaking people (you know, like the majority of the people on this board); b) the materials are soooooooo Taiwanese that anyone thinking they will work with little non-Taiwanese kids will be in for a surprise (too cutsie by far for kids in the US, for example); and most of all...

c) The site requires you to complete a questionnaire to get the "free" material.

Not only a questionnaire, too! You have to:
Log in to their site (giving up your e-mail);
Wait three days to be "verified";
Get a code for the download;
Experience "Chinese Wonderland" "straight away" (apparently the meaning of "straight away" is somewhat different at this company...but heck, four days, straight away, it's all the same banana!)

I agree with Ironlady, but I do think their target market is not the average foreigner in Taiwan trying to learn Chinese. It seems to be aimed at Chinese teachers rather than students.
