Chinese with Mike is like nothing you have ever experienced when it comes to learning Chinese. Teacher Mike's method is entertaining and effective--the kind of addictive learning you'll want to come back to time and again. With Teacher Mike's 60 short, video lessons, a companion coursebook, and audio, you will learn essential Chinese in no time. This program is suitable for self-study or as a supplement to classroom study or home schooling.
What will you learn? Season 3: Learn to tell people the milk is in the refrigerator, and your dirty clothes are under the bed. You'll also learn about jobs, dreams, and measure words, so you can brag about how many "Chinese with Mike" episodes you've completed. Season 4: Takes all the elements of the first three seasons and ties them together. You'll learn some new adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and conjunctions. And best of all, you'll get to watch Teacher Mike's ballet lesson and retirement press conference. Season 5: This was never meant to be, but Teacher Mike was lured out of retirement. You'll learn how to make comparisons (I am smarter than you) and use superlatives (This is the best Chinese book ever!). Also talk about the past and the future, ask your mom how she prepares her favorite recipe, and use transitions to put events in sequence.
