ECpod.com


ECpod is a website community where members teach each other Chinese and English using videos.  Everyone can watch these videos for free, learning the language and making friends/contacts at the same time.  Ecpod organises prize awards from time to time for highly voted videos. Instead of just booklearning, ECpod prides itself on the intrinsic value of other qualitative factors that come from cultural exchange between real people from all walks of life. You will learn not just the language, but also cultural innuendo and colloquialisms.

ECpod stands for "English Chinese Podcast" where the website's video clips are "Video Podcasted" by their members. While ECpod began as an English-and-Mandarin-only website, by popular demand they now accept clips in other Chinese dialects as well (for eg: Cantonese, Hakka, Hokkien and etc). Most of the videos have been transcripted and are sorted into Basic, Intermediate and Advanced levels, as well as categories like Business, Animals, Technology to make for effective learning in the field of your choice.

Cultural exchange wouldn't be complete without the inclusion of a rich variety of Chinese dialects which tend to be characteristic of different parts of Chinese populated-areas. Furthermore, some dialects will be extinct within one or two generations. Preservation of Chinese culture and history is nothing if it does not also preserve the dialects spoken by some of the ancient families of yore.

(All the above information is based on a summary by Lai Kin Wai, Director of ECpod Company Ltd.(Hong Kong))

Reviewer: Michael Robinson  Rating:: 5
This site is wonderful, I love the variety of videos!

I find it really helpful to be able to hear native Mandarin speakers talking normally - far removed from the artificial conversations and monologues included in most standard courses.

I've made a lot of good friends through this site, and had a lot of fun creating videos. It has helped me improve my general vocabulary and practice my grammar.

This site is different, a new approach to learning - no matter what method you're currently using, the content on this site will help.
