Younger students added a postscript: an audio Chinese-English dictionary in their own voices.

Interesting resource for teachers whom seek to explore education aspects within China. This resources also provides testimonials from Chinese students in a way that other children can relate to. This site also contains links to supporting material that teachers and students can access for more information regarding the life of many Chinese students and the general public.
