Has anyone taken a closer look at the MIT OpenCourseWare Chinese lectures? (See: http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Foreign-Languages-and-Literatures/21F-101Spring-2006/Readings/index.htm)
I quite enjoy video lectures on some other subjects, but I have difficulties in using the material provided for learning Chinese. It pretty much reminds me of the drill patterns used ages ago when I was learning some other foreign language(s).
I get the impression that material used in the classroom was just uploaded to the web "as is" without too much thought ...
But, maybe it's just me being daft.
