Da Shan is back!
I don't know if anyone else caught this, but Da Shan has a show called 'Sports Chinese', and it is pretty good. It was on CCTV 9 (the English channel) shortly after midnight, and I believe they said it was the first in a series. I'm hoping that it is also on CNTV (yet to check.)
It would suit learners of a wide range of levels (rather like ChinesePod). There are a number of dialogues, some grammar points and a typical Da Shan-style culture segment. The first episode was not actually about sport as such (except the culture segment), but the scenarios include a couple of journalist characters who work at a 'sports bureau'. This episode focused on introductions and using the 是 。。的 structure.
PS. He doesn't look a day older. That Canadian climate seems to be kind to the skin.
