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

Excellent Chinese Language Learning Tool

I’ve been using LCTS for almost 4 years now to brush up on my Chinese monthly and yearly since graduating college and completing my degree in the language. It’s really a great way to learn passively but there are so many ways to dig deeper into the lesson and use the tools they provide to learn actively as well!

A unique gem

LCTS is a unique gem among Chinese learning resources! As other reviewers have written, LCTS’ format is engaging (a natural, free-flowing, often humorous dialogue between two smart, articulate people); its content rich (about life, culture, songs, children stories); its resources helpful (including vocabulary lists and transcripts for each episode).

But what makes LCTS special are the hosts. Their passion for teaching Chinese comes across in every episode. Through their content and commitment to build community, it is obvious that they care about us (their dear listeners), our stories, and our successes.

I am among the many who have made LCTS a part of their Chinese learning journey. Two years into this journey that started with zero Chinese speaking/listening experience, I can honestly say that among all the Chinese learning resources available (podcasts… videos… courses… textbooks), LCTS has made the biggest contribution to my journey and my achievements related to Chinese learning.

So, thank you LCTS! I appreciate the effort and energy you have put into your craft in helping us along our journeys.
