Site to improve your Olympic Chinese knowledge

    We recently created a fun flash site for people to learn Olympic-related Chinese before they go to Beijing. I thought it may be useful for sports journalists going to the Games this summer to allow them to get around and discuss specific sports in detail.


    The features include the vocabulary (including audio) of all the sports terms, as well as short Mandarin lessons on the major themes and some cultural tips and suggestions. Also included is an interactive map of the event locations with translations and helpful information.

    The audio lessons can be saved on an iPod and consumed at the time and place they are needed. The ChinesePod site itself has hundreds of simple lessons that are designed for the visitor to China and accommodates anyone from an absolute newbie to the language to the intermediate speaker.

    I think it's, pretty unique. I hope it might be of some interest to journalists in this forum.

    I believe I had BYH in the Cindy pool. But I was off by a post.

    Does it have, "Hey, my wife wants me to get snipped, but I'm afraid. I'm a little baby."


    "Hey, my wife wants me to get snipped, but I'm afraid because of these people that I don't really know on this site I post on told me they use clamps and sometimes the pain medication doesn't work. Sweet Jesus, if I have to watch and I can feel it, I'm going on a three-state killing spree."

    Does it have those on there?
