Tacky (even taking into account surprisingly high production values), and looks to be cheap marketing for New Concept Mandarin in Hong Kong, but I suspect some of you will have a look anyway. I give it a couple of months before they figure out this is no way to make actual money.

A hint for anyone actually trying to learn from this: 5 minutes of actual pornography, then 55 minutes of actual studying. I think of this as the beer-flavoured ham principle. Realistically you're going to be better off with a beer, and some ham.

Did you notice the date on that? Quick look at the Youtube channel and it looks like one video a month. I suspect Xiao Li was more a film student's final year project rather than an attempt at a commercially viable operation though.

Only 5 minutes of porn? :(

Also this reminds me of hotforwords Russian lessons. A nice bit of eye-candy, but not really an effective way of learning anything substantial.

Ah, you guys got my expectations up real high... but seriously. Only girls? *sigh*

So unfair. When do we girls get to watch Chinese guys in only their underpants teaching us Chinese...?

This makes me embarrassed to be a guy with a Chinese wife studying Mandarin -- such a cliche. Now please excuse me as I go watch it for a fifth time.

Indeed if you want to target people on the main land aswell you should upload it to pages we have easy access.

Pretty sure the primary audience is foreigners.

I agree that the production value is surprisingly high. Neither it nor the Xiaoli videos are any good for serious students, but are fun links to send to your friends about the joys of studying Chinese (particularly one studying Arabic with no Sexy counterpart).
