    The red bean grows in southern lands.
    With spring its slender tendrils twine.
    Gather for me some more, I pray,
    Of fond remembrance is the sign.
    红豆生南国,春来发几枝。
    愿君多采撷,此物最相思。

Listening is King

After learning Chinese for three months now I can say as a fact listening is the most crucial part of the learning process. Majority of my learning has come from listening, primarily ChinesePod which is a great resource, however I believe it’s the most useful when you solely listen to the dialogues in the beginning. I was getting a little bored with it and wanted longer form content to diversify my listening, so I discovered this podcast. At first, I thought learning through immersion on a 100% Chinese podcast with having only a high elementary level of comprehension would be impossible. At first even the novices were challenging, but now it’s quickly getting easier and it’s amazing how just looking at the vocabulary list “unlocks” my understanding of the story and I love that they give examples with vocabulary I do know to impress the new input. 太谢谢你们了!
