Brief Introduction to Multimedia Chinese Language Learning Product --"Living Chinese"
A cooperative project by China Radio International (CRI) and the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), "Living Chinese" was designed and produced by the English Service of CRI. "Living Chinese" is a 20-episode Chinese-teaching video series that fully utilizes the internet's potential to promote language acquisition through both direct viewing and interaction. The series is also designed to promote Chinese culture around the world. The duration of each episode is about 10 minutes. "Living Chinese" is also available in other formats such as a textbook, online and mobile-friendly versions, compact discs and MP3 products.
With a balance of live action and animation, "Living Chinese" offers a vivid and panoramic view of Chinese culture and society. The programs focus on many aspects of daily life, including renting an apartment, getting a driver's license and visiting a Chinese farmyard. The series also offers practical advice to those new to Chinese culture, who are perhaps more vulnerable to the culture shock of settling down in a different country.
With a practical yet humorous approach, "Living Chinese" mainly targets beginner-level language learners and those who want to brush up on basic Chinese skills. The series is particularly useful for people planning to relocate to China.

Ratings and Reviews
Lag, lag, lag...
It is likely because the servers are in China, but it takes too long to load. Just as a previous reviewer mentioned, this would be an awesome app except that downloading the A/V and/or buffering the streaming media takes far too long.
The app worked once some months ago. It has potential but doubtful the developers care if users of the app learn their language or not. The app should be removed from the iTunes offering
Where is the sound?????!
This app would be totally awesome except despite everything I do, I can not get any sound with either the videos nor the player. Since everything relies on you being able to hear the dialogue, this make this app to be a total waste of a download.
If they fix the sound issue, then this will be an awesome app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
