Teresa O. Richmond CA ,

Great podcast but patron pages disorganized

As a household Mandarin speaker and story lover who needs to improve my vocabulary before visiting Mom in Taiwan, I really love this podcast. However, when I joined as a Patreon I was hoping for transcripts (as promised at $5 level), but then was locked out of MOST story transcripts and was prompted to level up at $7 per month. I don’t mind spending more money, but I don’t like it when I was promised a product at the $5 level then denied that product. Additionally, I was hoping to organize my learning through the patreon membership, but the patreon page and the website are both so disorganized and many portions are locked. So terrible so confusing. After hours of trying to make sense of the sites I gave up. Too bad. What a waste of my time!!

Excellent for an Intermediate Mandarin Learner

I have never taken the tests but I am somewhere in the HSK 3-4 range. If that is where you are I highly recommend this podcast. I have studied in my free time for a few years. I have always struggled to find audio at my level and this is the best I’ve encountered. Too often things are far beyond my level and I need to translate sentence by sentence or they are so basic that they are not interesting. Some of the episodes are beyond my level but some are in that fantastic place where I can understand about 80% of the conversation and I can work on learning the rest. The show is brilliant and I just signed up to contribute on Patreon.

Super useful for learning Chinese

My favorite podcast for practicing listening. Transcripts are super helpful. Explainer episodes enable learning through context. Appreciate the lack of English and different skill levels
