Ling-Ling Chinese is a Language Learning Resource Collective created by Professor Ling-Ling Shih. This website was originally exclusive for her Chinese students, then expanded to a collection of authentic Chinese multimedia and educational resources to aid studying the new language. This website provides a wealth of teaching and learning resources, including:

Expose yourself to Chinese as much as possible. Not only in the early stages of learning a language, but also when you have reached an intermediate level. Using videos and listening to others speaking Chinese helps add context and experience, especially if you’re not in Chinese speaking country.

Why limit yourself to textbook learning? Authentic materials refer to the materials that are read, heard, viewed, and created by the native speakers and locals. Foreign language will be a lot more fun to learn when someone gets the inside scoop on the culture behind it. Here are some examples of Authentic Materials: News Magazine ArticlesRadio BroadcastTV DramasMoviesSongsChildren’s LiteraturePoems and Children Rhymes, and daily things native people encounter.

  1. Hello Shih laoshi,

    Your website is excellent! It is so helpful to all Chinese educators! I am so happy that I found this site. Thank you so so much!
    I am teaching Huanying Textbook for all four levels in high school. I wonder if you have any good project ideas that can be shared online as well.
