Authentic Mandarin Audio

 
As part of the Pennsylvania State University DuBois Web Portal Project, volunteers have provided us with authentic Mandarin audio clips in response to different topics.  If the questions were asked in English, there will be the English question as a file and then the Mandarin response as a second file.  Each of these files are set up as .wav files

These authentic materials may be used freely by faculty at the Commonwealth College Campuses of The Pennsylvania State University; all others may use the materials found here for educational purposes by requesting to use these materials from Dr. Deborah Gill.  Under no circumstances should these materials be used for commercial purposes.  If you should use these materials, please send a message so that we know that the information is being used.  This will help us be able to expand upon the project if we see that it is useful. 

Please noteThese materials have been kept in their original form; the language which is present is authentic and has not been altered in any way.  Some material may be objectionable to you (i.e., the opinions of the author may not be similar to yours).  If this is the case, you are free not to use that material. 

If you should have any questions, please send an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  Or, if you would like to contribute to the data, also please send an email giving us some information about yourself and how you would like to contribute. 

Enjoy!
