Learning via Movies

 Revolutionary Software for  Synchro-Multisensory Chinese Learning

Learning Mandarin Chinese through interactive movies

Movies are one of the best sources for second language learning. However, people will not learn much from simply watching movies without a learning purpose. Watching movies is a passive process most of the time, but learning a second language through movies is an active participation with watching, listening, speaking, reading, and even writing simultaneously.

Movies without subtitles are not of much use for learning the language being spoken in the movies. Subtitles show you what words are being spoken, and help you to comprehend those spoken words with the aid of translation. This software gives you the full control over synchronised multisensory learning with PinYin/English/Chinese subtitles. However, worth to emphasize that studying subtitles is not the goal. The ultimate goal of acquiring a second language is that you would be able to speak the language and understand what is being spoken to you.

This software is designed to help you acquire a second language (Mandarin Chinese in this case) with many great functions built in.

The software is a media player (watching, listening and reading), a sound recorder (speaking), a text editor (reading and writing) and a resource manager (content controller). This software makes it possible to learn Mandarin Chinese with our Listening-based Multisensory Synchro-learning Approach through 10 great Chinese films.
