This presentation demonstrates how the introduction of Chinese songs, comics and TV changed the perceptions and attitudes of a group of undeserved, linguistic and culturally diverse students towards the learning of Chinese.

A follow-up study conducted ten years later confirmed that the exposure to media is crucial element in the path to language acquisition. This path is pleasant, produces consistently positive results, turns students into independent, lifelong acquirers of Chinese and provides students opportunity to become citizens of the world.
