I would like to know if you recommend to me this program (especially if  you did it or you know someone who did or is doing it). And finally, i would be happy to read your recommendation of some universities to applay for this program.    Thanks a lot!

      I just published a new Android app that generates Pimsleur-ish audio lessons for any type of knowledge you need to get into your long-term memory. The reason I say they are Pimsleur style is because it repeats the question and answer using a similar SRS formula that Pimsleur lessons use.   I'm using it for Chinese vocabulary. Using the app, I record a series of questions and answers such as "How do you say Android?" ... "an1zhuo2".   Please check it out and let me know what you like and what doesn't work well.   https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_ndcain.audio_lessons   In case you can't visit the Google Play Store, I've also attached it to this message. audio_lessons (20).apk

      Hello all, I just discovered a new website and from a quick search on the forum it seems nobody wrote a post about it, so I'm going to share it with you. I only tried Speechling for some minutes, anyway  it is a website that mainly allows you to practice speaking. You can listen to words or full sentences and do shadowing. Sentences are at full speed and there's an option also for slowing down the speed. You can also save your recordings and a tutor will provide a feedback about your pronunciation in 24 hours. According to the website he or she will "correct your word pronunciation, intonation, rhythm, grammar, word choice and more". Intermediate and advanced users can also describe pictures or study an HSK curriculum. There are also listening exercises, flashcards with spaced repetition, fill in the blank exercises. Free accounts have a limite number of sentences that can be sent to the tutor for feedback in a given month. In order to unlock unlimited feedback there is a premium subscription. As I said I just tried the website for short time, so I can't really say how good it is, but I like how easy it is to listen to sentences and try to repeat them. Maybe some of you will want to try it.

      Hey everybody! I've seen that the question has already been asked multiple times but it has been a while so I thought I would ask again and get updated answers! I am know preparing to study Chinese full time in China next year. I had made my decision to take BLCU's intensive class but after a little research I've found out that many complains about their dorms and many don't recommend the intensive course because it is better to spend the extra hours out with Chinese people. Many talks about how many international students there are in BLCU and how big their classes are. Tsinghua on the other hand has higher ranking and is considered one of the best universities in the world. What are your recommendations and for you who have studied at the Chinese program at Tsinghua, how would you describe it? You are also more than welcome to recommend other universities that have long-term programs.

      Today is 11.11 (Singles' day in China) so there are many discounts online. Taobao is going crazy  I stumbled across a discount code for Chinesepod if anyone is interested (code: "SINGLESDAY" gives you 51% off the annual or the quarterly premium subscription). Note: I'm not in any way affiliated with them, don't consider this as advertisement. I'm just a person learning Chinese and if there's a way of saving, why not. Do you know of any other valid discount codes for other well known websites like Skritter, The Chairman's Bao or others? I'd like to purchase a subscription to some of them in order to boost my Chinese learning.
