TCB testimonials

“It really is revolutionary! The graded and abridged news made reading practice so easy and fun. It helps me to differentiate my teaching. By using it, I’m assigning 3 different homework to the class, while each level feels challenged and encouraged. At the beginning of class, I use a piece of fun news as an opener, which brings everyone together, and set the collaborating tone of the class time. Sometimes, I assign different groups different articles, and then ask them to report to each other on the gist of the story. I feel so happy to see them achieving learner autonomy—some of them are correcting their own grammatical mistakes, some are trying to use new words they just learned, some are trying to use the sentence structures in the article... It is just what I want.”

“I wholeheartedly recommend The Chairman’s Bao to all students of Chinese, for self-learning or to supplement a formal course. The bite-sized bespoke articles, all graded according to HSK level, are current, interesting and well-written, and provide a wonderful incentive to keep students of all ages and levels motivated. The live dictionary, keyword list, grammar points, and comprehension questions are all invaluable aids both for self-learners and for busy teachers who simply don’t have the time to create their own materials on constantly evolving content. There is a remarkable range of online resources now available to help people learn Chinese, but very few are as user-friendly and well-designed as the TCB, and even fewer cover such interesting topics. I have found myself recommending the site on numerous occasions and will continue to do so.”

“The Chairman’s Bao has made planning and resource finding so much easier! And my students engage with TCB articles for listening and reading in a way that never happens with dull text book exercises. For the older students, there’s a wealth of interesting content for them, plus clear grammar explanations. In fact with my pre-U class I’ve used TCB as our ‘virtual’ textbook for the last few months as it has so much related to key topics like the environment and the lives of young people… With younger pupils, I start every lesson with a quirky TCB report from Levels 1 and 2 and do quick, fun listening activities. No preparation needed. The frequent repetition of key words in each article plus the eye-catching photos work wonders for their vocab retention.”

TCB testimonials

“The Chairman’s Bao, with its collection of nearly 4,000 current and timely articles based on Chinese media content, is an excellent source of input for all levels of language learners. Students can read the articles on their own, using the site’s ample resources to facilitate comprehension and learning. In the classroom, then, teacher and students can follow on by doing graded activities to deepen comprehension, gain greater familiarity with new vocabulary and sentence formats, practice interpersonal communication by expressing personal interpretations and opinions, spiral into writing and presentational practice, and venture into unmediated authentic materials. The site, then, is an excellent entryway into the real world of Chinese news.”
