How much of the Chinese language could you learn if you spent half as much time with ChinesePod as you do with "Neighbors," "COPS," and "MTV"? Television is a brain-washing machine. If you want to kill your soul, watch the boob tube. If you want to learn Chinese, listen to this podcast. ChinesePod is revolutionary, and it is not televised.
