    #313 - BEEFISH | THE MANDARIN MONKEY PODCAST

    As usual we go into the depths of philosposhy in this one and discuss how to say 'ish' and 'ey' in Mandarin Chinese. We also delve into the unfathomable with fears and as always children. Tom wants eye surgery and Ula loves the snow. Slightly shorter than usual but well worth a listen.

Extremely helpful + some feedback.

I can say this podcast has 100% helped me in my continuing and evolving Mandarin learning journey. The best podcast for comprehensible input, I’m around an intermediate level but I honestly feel this podcast is perfectly tailored somehow to all levels. This is a testament to Tom and Ula who come across as knowledgeable and approachable, so they make the listener feel comfortable. As a Teacher myself, I recognize and appreciate how this is critical to an accessible learning environment. Ironically, I strive to never be “textbook” or “boring” in the classroom but I find at times when Tom criticizes “textbook learning” it is a bit of a drawback. Textbook learning can help many people, especially beginners to language, to build a foundation. Especially learning characters, which is critical to understanding Mandarin. Without a textbook or something similar, it is very challenging to comprehend the characters. Finally, Tom comes across as one of the nicest and most friendly people, but at times his comedic digressions are a bit long and I feel can take away from the flow of the learning. All in all, I would recommend this podcast to literally anyone who is learning Mandarin. It is a perfect way to access new content and the hosts could not be more welcoming and knowledgeable.
