Want to learn Putonghua? Try Becky. This is Becky:
Becky is one of the teachers from http://www.echineseonline.com/. She's a nut but in a good way. Echinese online features short, easy to understand Chinese lessons from fresh, funny teachers. I'm not sure how I got on their list but they've been sending me videos for a while now.
Their format is straight forward. They introduce a topic and go over the tones and key word with you. I really appreciate the fact that they show the pinyin and the traditional Chinese characters together on the video.
The production value is a little cheesy. I sometimes feel like I'm watching a kid's how to video but, in traditional Chinese style, the teachers are bright and friendly and they do a great job of taking you step by step through the lesson.
