I want to use the audio files in a course wherein undergraduates in Taiwan will listen to the Chinese and translate them to English. BUT, I'm confused about my status with copyright should I either post the audio files on a website or copy them onto a DVD for students to use. I don't want to send students to the URL, because the English is provided, and they're clever enough to use Dr. Xie's translation rather than working out their own.

Very impressive! I am very grateful for this effort. Looks like a lot of work
have been done to make this site possible. I use this site to review my chinese
learning. This is great for learning chinese by oneself.

Technical Remarks:

A book is needed to follow the recording which I don't readily have. Maybe the
pinyin text should be included.

This language site is very useful in assisting students in learning
beginning-intermediate Chinese. Listening exercises are especially helpful since
students have limited class time and environment to practice listening.

Technical Remarks:

Easy navigation. RealPlayer is needed for listening to audio. Chinese characters
can either be read through Big5 decoder such as NJWIN and AsianBridge or Adobe
Acrobat Reader.
