Simon’s Rock faculty member John Weinstein appeared on NPR’s sports program, "Only a Game" this Saturday, August 9, 2008. Weinstein, who teaches Chinese at the College, served as the authority on the pronunciation of China’s capital city and host of the 2008 Olympic Games, Beijing. He and colleague Carsey Yee anticipated mispronunciations when they created the site, Two Chinese Characters, months ago. The site offers visitors quick tutorials on Chinese pronunciations from Beijing to the official Chinese cheer, "jiayou".
