Thank you for this podcast!

Hello, I’m from Taiwan and I’d like to be a Chinese teacher in the future. Although I know this podcast is for people who want to learn Chinese. But for me, it is really awesome. I can know the perspectives from Chinese language learners. Thanks a lot! Hope you can do more:)
