    I read a lot of articles on chinasmack.com. They basically just take popular Chinese forum or blog posts and translate them to English, and they provide the link to the original article. This way you can read it in Chinese and go back and read chinasmack's English translation to see if you got it right.

    This is for a higher level though, if you are just starting out, then I recommend New Practical Chinese Reader as a good starting point for textbooks.

    I love chinasmack.com, it's very entertaining, but no I'm not starting, I'm doing a research because I work for www.speakchinese.cn, and I want to make studying Chinese fun, not just a plain routine (I had that when I was studying Chinese at Beida).

    One-on-one intensive lessons and immersion-based experiential learning is definitely the best method to learn chinese. I founded a Chinese language school in Guilin, China that follows this philosophy and I've seen many students go from absolute beginner to advanced within a year by way of one-on-one intensive lessons.

    I agree with you, Robbie Fried :)
