Testimonial on Learning Mandarin Chinese Using Chinese Dubbed Movies
When I meet a new Chinese friend, almost every time they say if they just heard me talking they wouldn't know I was a foreigner. I owe a lot of that to watching and learning Mandarin from DVDs.
For me I learn 100 times faster watching Chinese movies than studying books because in the movies it is spoken in context. When I need to recall the word I just remember the scene where they used the word and it pops into my mind. I also study books, but it seems I have to read the same word over and over and over to get it to stick in my memory. The more I watch the Chinese movies, the less foreign they sound. Now I'm watching movies like "confusious" or "earthquake" and am enjoying them as much as USA made films with Chinese dubbing. I'm a strong believer in your slogan that watching movies in Chinese is the fun and easy way to learn Chinese.

Customer Comments on Super Fast Delivery
Insanely fast shipping! This US company surely delivers DVDs in lightening fast speed! You don't have to have a Prime membership in order to get super fast, white glove service. The package gets to my door step in just TWO business days in perfect condition! They are doing what they promised and all inventory are sent from their US warehouse (vs from an off shore location). Our kids just love to order from their web site.

The Importance of Learning the Mandarin Chinese Language
Since 2010, China has surpassed Japan, and becomes the world's second largest economy and is positioned to overtake first in the near future. Many US companies have large business interests in China. China's growing influence in the global economy will have employers looking for people who can speak Chinese and can work with ease between the English and Chinese cultures. Additionally, the US government has targeted Mandarin as a critical language and is actively supporting schools who wish to include Chinese courses in their curriculum.
Students studying Chinese will have their choice of careers, whether in business, teaching or politics. Early language study also will fulfill the State of Michigan language requirement for all students graduating from high school. The U.S. State Department has designated the Chinese language as "critical to national prosperity and security." Learning Chinese can put you ahead of the curve by having a strong foundation in Mandarin Chinese.
