SexyMandarin - the unconventional way to learn Mandarin

Recommended Posts

Yeah, those models are obviously not your average 'prettiest teacher I know' ones you usually get in these videos, so someone's actually put at least a little time and money into this. It would be interesting to know who, and what plans they have.

Apparently it is related to "Michael Gleissner", a guy in HK who makes movies, and who is "in a relationship" with the original poster on Facebook. Started an English-language teaching company (Cleverlearn), apparently now branching out into teaching Chinese?

I don't understand, Anna Sophie Loewenberg wasn't in any of those videos.

Actually, there was some useful new vocabulary in the clips. However, I was unable to understand most of the fast mumbled speaking of the actresses. It could just be blood loss to the brain, though.

There's a large volume discrepancy between the actresses' dialogue and the instructional portions. Also, I don't much like the narrator's accent.

The narrator‘s accent is pretty dreadful, but does reinforce my idea of a porn shoot (pretty girls and a creepy older guy).

Might want to stick to packaged goods. Fruit and vegetables might get you more than you asked for.

Or maybe just what he was looking for?

while obviously not for serious learners, I can see it being very useful if your purpose is to impress someone with couple phrases at a Chinese restaurant or something. Plus, it could be the perfect front for a prostitution network :P

So ... this is just PR for new concept mandarin right? EDIT: oh yes, just seen an earlier post.

I wonder if they could do a Carry On themed series later...

Not sure if it's actually them, or if they're sponsoring it or something. Tottora, fill us in, you're being far too coy - might work with the Apple Daily, but the folk on here need a bit more than five minutes of titillating Youtube vids.

The website does say: If you are serious about learning Mandarin Chinese please contact our sponsor - New Concept Mandarin.

New Concept Mandarin is our sponsor! But I truly believe in education with a bit of fun and excitement as you would definitely learn faster. I went to Shanghai Jiao Tong university for 6 months but the most chinese I learnt was from shopping at Qipulu, and the fake market the more you learn on the street, the cheaper things got!
