"This unique program emphasizes authentic, unrehearsed Chinese language as it is spoken among Chinese speakers. The program includes a DVD and audio connecting students to Chinese culture, politics, and issues by means of the popular talk show program of China Central Television, Tell It Like It Is! Because a broad variety of individuals participate in the shows, representing different genders, ages, and accents, the listener/reader is exposed to the kinds of language used in real-life situations. Complete episodes of Tell It Like It Is! are available on DVD. Tell It Like It Is! addresses the crucial need of advanced-level students of Chinese to learn spontaneous informal oral discourse, whether they are participating in classroom study or learning independently."
