Edward_Moseley ,

Excellent!

This podcast is excellent, and I’m very appreciative of all the speakers on the show!

Even if you speak, or understand, no Mandarin at all— as was the case for me when I began— even listening to this podcast (which is only in Mandarin), as well as reading the episode details, will lead you in the right direction to learn as much as you’d like.

It is even helpful (and definitely fun!) to listen to the episodes several times.

I would give this podcast 10 stars if I could, as it has helped me so, so much.

I recommend it very highly!

Great Podcast

Great Podcast and really worth the Patreon. You get a lot of material on there, especially for $5/month. I love the conversational format of the shows. Only suggestion is I wish they would take a little bit more of an extensive reading approach: fewer vocab words and more repetition of those vocab words. (I’ve seen a lot of progress from Mandarin Companion and Chinese Breeze and would give an unreserved 5 stars if this was a podcast version of extensive reading at the 750, 1000, etc character levels.)

Like that they explain in Chinese

It’s hard find a podcast that takes the time to explain the meanings in Chinese. Helps me to have a deeper understanding of the language. Thanks for the great podcast!
