Chinese language video clips

    Fleming, Stephen; Hiple, David; & Ning, Cyndy

    Chinese Language Video Clips are not lessons but “raw material” — video segments shot in China to be used as you see fit. Enjoy fifty video segments from footage shot on location in and around Beijing, such as an interview with a girl about her favorite toys, self-introductions by college students, and off-the-cuff introduction to taxis and buses. Filmed on location in Beijing, mostly at Peking University, these naturalistic video clips, ranging from less than one minute to eight minutes in length and consisting chiefly of unrehearsed interviews of ordinary folk, offer valuable source material for Chinese language teachers at all levels. Six topic areas are represented. These are personal information, commercial transactions, travel and leisure, health and sports, food, and school. See a sample:
