Mandarin 2.0

Unattributed, The Economist, Jun 08, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Tomorrow morning, before the Sun comes up, I will be getting ready to leave for a visit to Taiwan for the 2007 International Conference on OpenCourseWare and e-Learning. It's a bit late for me to use this site, which assists in the teaching of Mandarin. But I like the idea. "'Tens of millions' of people in 110 countries now download the free ChinesePod podcasts, Praxis's flagship service, says Mr Carroll. About 250,000 listen regularly and 'several thousand' pay for the premium services, which include individual Skype chats with teachers."
