Homework reminder: Find a YouTube clip that is relevant to the topic of China, it can be anything at all to do with the topic e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWsXhNJFj78.
Watch the clip. Post a link here and a comment about the clip. How useful is the clip? What is it about? Where did it come from? See the example below if you are unsure.
Comment: This clip is from ABC Australia and covers internet usage in China. Useful but be wary of this YouTube member as many of the clips he/she has posted have a strong political message and so may be biased.
If you can’t find a clip then post a link to a news article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/7780477.stm This one is about How China has had to learn to live with reform because of the many and varied changes it has undergone in recent decades.
Another clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyDg_mkfyfE
This one is from a documentary called Inside Story on Al Jazeera English. As China celebrates three decades of market-oriented reforms, Inside Story looks at how the global financial crisis is affecting the world’s second-largest economy. Very Useful.
