    Welcome to another episode of 听故事说中文!
    In this episode, we are sharing a story by Lao She that captures his evolving sentiments towards hens. At first, he expresses a deep dislike for hens, describing their incessant clucking and pecking as annoying. As the story progresses, he witnesses a hen fiercely protect and care for her brood, which changes his perspective. By the end of the episode, he concludes that a mother, whether a hen or a human, is a true hero, demonstrating responsibility, love, courage, and hard work.

Useful and realistic

This is a useful podcast. Both speakers give you a realistic sense of actual Chinese. It doesn’t put me to sleep like most language materials.

播客的音量和广告的音量区别太大了

我喜欢听这个播客,但是播客的音量太小了 尤其是女主播 所以我把声音放大一点好好听 但是广告呢 一是突然间来 二是特别特别大声音 每次都会吓我一跳 把我的耳朵弄聋 所以我听着有一种不舒服的感觉 我一直在怕广告什么时候来吓我一跳
