The 2008 Summer Games are almost upon us, and to commemorate this monumental sporting event we've launched ChinesePod Olympics, a mini-site filled with information you'll need to follow the Games and navigate Beijing. Whether you're going to see the Olympics yourself, or just really want to bone up on your field hockey vocabulary, this is the site for you.

On our fully interactive map, you can locate each of the Olympic venues and their respective events. English, Chinese, pinyin, and audio recordings are all there to assist in you getting around the Olympic Village.
