Requirements: MP3, Size: 147 Mb
Overview: The Economist claims it "is not a chronicle of economics." Rather, it aims "to take part in a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress." It takes an editorial stance which is supportive of free trade, globalisation, government health and education spending, as well as other, more limited forms of governmental intervention. It targets highly educated readers and claims an audience containing many influential executives and policy-makers. The publication belongs to The Economist Group, half of which is owned by the Financial Times, a subsidiary of Pearson PLC. A group of independent shareholders, including many members of the staff and the Rothschild banking family of England, owns the rest. A board of trustees formally appoints the editor, who cannot be removed without its permission. In addition, about two thirds of the 75 staff journalists are based in London, despite the global emphasis.

Requirements: MP3 player, 1.2 GB
Overview: This is a state-of-the-art language learning course for spoken Mandarin Chinese. The popular Pimsleur course does not use a book but uses a completely aural approach to language learning, perfect for learning "on-the-go". Features a proficiency-based system that helps the student learn through listening and speaking practice.

    It’s now possible to speak and understand a foreign language effortlessly. The world-famous Pimsleur Method™ combines well-established research, most-useful vocabulary and a completely intuitive process to get you speaking right from the first day. All Pimsleur® courses feature real-world context and flexible vocabulary enabling you to learn your new language in a fluid, natural way. It’s the simplest way to start speaking a new language today.

    This course teaches Mandarin, also known as Standard Chinese. Mandarin is the official spoken language in Mainland China and Taiwan. It is also widely spoken in Singapore and Malaysia, and it is one of the five official languages of the UN. Learn Mandarin Chinese today with Pimsleur.

      The Pimsleur method

        The Pimsleur method (sometimes billed as the Pimsleur Language Learning System) is an audio-based language learning method developed by Paul Pimsleur that stresses active participation over rote memorization. During lessons, the listener repeats words and phrases given by native speakers and constructs new phrases by inference. As new phrases are introduced, the listener is prompted to recall older phrases. The prompts for any given phrase are gradually spaced out in ever-increasing intervals. Between 1963 and 1971, Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi courses while teaching at the University of California, Los Angeles.

        The Pimsleur method focuses on proficiency in speaking, as well as proficiency in reading. These two aspects are honed through thirty-minute lessons, which are repeated until a score of at least 80% comprehension is achieved before proceeding to the next lesson. During the lessons, students listen to native speakers of the target language as they speak phrases in both the foreign language, as well as the student’s main language. At graduated intervals, learners are prompted to repeat a phrase after listening to the speaker. As the student progresses through the program, the interval increases, as does the size of the vocabulary. The courses are made up of 30-minute daily sessions and shorter reading lessons. They are published and sold by Pimsleur Language Programs (Simon & Schuster).

        Cantonese Chinese I

          Learn to carry on simple conversations with a near-native accent: ask for and give basic directions, exchange money, handle basic travel, and deal with social demands confidently. 30 Units plus Culture Notes – 16 hours.

    Over 1 billion people speak Chinese. The two most common dialects are Mandarin and Cantonese. They are not mutually intelligible.

    Mandarin and Cantonese are tonal languages, which means that each sound’s meaning is affected by the tone used to pronounce it. There are four tones for Mandarin and six for Cantonese. Mandarin and Cantonese use the same written characters with a few exceptions. Although Mandarin speakers and Cantonese speakers are unable to communicate orally, they are able to communicate in written form. Both are written using a non-phonetic writing system called “hanzi”.

    Hanzi uses pictograms, which have different readings and meanings depending on how they are combined with other kanji. In other words, the same kanji pictogram can be read in different ways based on context.
    Pimsleur’s approach to reading is based on phonetics, which is not compatible with the ideographic Chinese written system. The Pimsleur Chinese courses therefore offer Culture Notes instead of reading lessons.

    Mandarin is the official language in Mainland China, Taiwan, and Singapore. The Mandarin dialect is used in most Chinese schools, colleges, and universities, and in most TV programs, movies, and radio stations throughout the country (even in Guangzhou, or Canton, where people speak Cantonese in their daily lives). Mandarin is one of the six official languages used at the United Nations.

About the Author

    Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called “Graduated Interval Recall.” This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.
