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.

I'm no psychologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a guy who calls himself King James and has his initials and "Vivat Rex" -- Latin for "Long live the king" -- on his custom-made Nike jacket, and has CHOSEN 1 tattooed across his back and WITNESS tattooed on one calf and HISTORY on the other calf might have a big ego. It is an ego borne of insecurity, and this is why he left for Miami in the first place: He wanted things to be easier. He wanted Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at his side and South Beach a short drive away. That is the fundamental disconnect between James and Cleveland fans. They gave up on easy a long time ago.
