Hi Dagwood, I just want to say how much I am enjoying your pinyin subtitle product—I watched King of Masks today and was able to both enjoy the movie and learn/reinforce my efforts at learning Mandarin. The amount of work and detail those subtitle files represents is incredible. Thank you for creating such a good service.Frank Maddox, Associate Professor of Economics, Oxford College of Emory University
For myself, I really enjoy how I can sit on the couch get comfortable and watch the whole thing. Also having transcripts in the Chinese-Pinyin-English format is great too - so I can read the transcripts before I watch the movies, then when I watch the movie I can just focus on the Chinese part and building up my skill level to the point when I can watch the movies like you would, say in a theater.Kevin McKenzie
Learning Chinese through watching movies is a great idea, and I have tried doing it myself. But without pinyin subtitles (I don’t have time for hanzi) I don’t learn much from the movies. I am glad someone else has taken up the challenge, and am happy to support your efforts at least through purchasing the product. Tell me if there is any other way I can help out.Ian
This is a great way to passively studying language.. the educational videos get so boring.Crock703
Hi there, just wanted to say thanks so much for putting together the subs for these movies. I’ve just moved to Shanghai and doing a lot of self-study, and I’ve found them incredibly helpful. They’ve really helped me a lot with my speaking and listening skills. I feel like I’m picking up the language a lot more because of what you’ve done. It’s really empowering and really expands my world since English is very sparse here, and in many cases, nonexistent. Much, much appreciated. CheersDave Rollands
