Learn a Language with Video I really really like the fact that the videos are real authentic videos. It makes it much more interesting. Learning Chinese almost becomes an afterthought to the fact that you are watching cool videos. Niel, Confused Laowai

But this is not the real reason ... Continue Reading Alex Gartner, entrepreneur
