Unintentional learning resource

Recommended Posts

While looking for English learning resources for a Chinese friend, I found this playlist on YouTube:

 

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaYqF7AnyNPfOVmMZSw7lfGymb9f2cz5Q

 

It's an introductory English course for native Chinese speakers, taught by a Taiwanese teacher. She actually speaks Chinese most of the time, and a bit of English every now and then. Chinese viewers watching this will see a 'person teaching beginner-level English', but what I see is a 'person speaking native-level Chinese'. It actually makes excellent listening material. I call this an "unintentional learning resource".

Obviously, it's from Taiwan. IMO it doesn't matter if you treat it as listening material.
