I have published some wonderful Mandarin materials and wish to promote the books to English-speaking countries. Can you help me?

Q: I am a Singaporean, who specializes in writing children books. I have published some wonderful Mandarin materials which are very popular in Singapore and now in China. I have taught some foreign friends to speak Mandarin and have introduced them to these materials, which have proved not only effective in teaching language to children and to adults. I wish to promote my books to English countries. Can you help me?

There’s a language immersion class run at Dartmouth that might be good to contact. The site address for the professor is: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~rassias. I believe they do teach a course in Mandarin Chinese. You may also want to check Asia for Kids, which is a catalog www.asiaforkids.com that carries a lot of language materials. 1:2/05
