I feel that this module is very good, which will definitely help learners improve their Chinese listening comprehension. This module features authentic listening materials. The video, which helps learners better understand the lesson, is also integrated into the audio very appropriately, given that it does not present an interference to learners' listening. In addition, through this module learners can learn traditional Chinese characters.

Technical Remarks:

This module is easy to navigate. I can easily move to the next lesson and go back to the previous lesson and so on. However, if the author presents a link that allows the learner to directly go to different lessons, instead of having to click the "back" button again and again, it will be much more helpful.
