Chinese Executive videos from Univ. of Texas

Posted by orkelm June 15, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

First of all, excuse the shameful self promotion.  (I figure, however, since c-pod folks are used to Aric's Texas-style self promotion--gonna miss you on the Saturday Show Aric-- and since I'm at the Univ. of Texas too, ya'll might understand where we're coming from.)

Anyway, our website is used in our courses for Business Chinese, specifically on the cultural aspects of doing business.  The website has over 200 quicktime video clips of interviews from Chinese-speaking executives (both Mainland and Taiwan).  All of the video clips are transcribed (traditional, simplfied, and pinyin) and translated into English.  The cultural information is cool, but even better is the chance to hear real speech from real people saying real things in Mandarin.  Check it out.
