Dear John,

My name is Connor Meiselman and I’m emailing you on behalf of Transparent Language, a language-learning software company. I was doing some research on Chinese language sites in anticipation of the upcoming Olympic Games and came across your site. I figured you might be interested to know that we’ve just added Chinese to our Word of the Day widgets for blogs and websites! Every day the widget provides a new word and example sentence along with native speaker sound. Much of the content is focused on the games this summer, with words and phrases for events and more.

To get the widget for your site, grab the embed code at

You may also enjoy the other free resources (including games, quizzes, and our Chinese blog) on our Chinese Language Learning Portal:

If you have any questions about using the widget or would like to discuss additional partnership opportunities, let me know!

There's no doubt learning any foreign language requires effort, time and commitment. This holds true even more, especially when there's a big difference between the native tongue and learning a new language. On the other side, knowing the methods of learning a new language can make all the difference on how effective and successful you can achieve. I find a rather nice site called, not only can you learn Chinese easily here, but also you can save much money,good luck,guys, ^_^
