Normal Guy ,

Educational and Engaging

For me, this has been the best podcast for improving my conversational Chinese. It’s educational but is also entertaining enough to keep me coming back for more. Because of the light-hearted and humorous banter between them, Tom and Ula have a way of making even mundane topics interesting and engaging. Additionally, the new story and vocab section has been effective in making new vocabulary stick better.

Koopsie ,

Almost as good as Taiwanese Dramas

These guys are engaging and charming, and I’m almost out of Taiwanese dramas on Netflix. If you are trying to learn Chinese, it’s a perfect way to let normal conversation wash over you.

rene.nay ,

Funny and relevant

The hosts speak both English and Chinese and make it super enjoyable to hear conversation in both languages as I’m learning Mandarin. They talk about everyday life topics about kids and parenting but also money and relationships. They give some new vocabulary each episode taken from a short story that’s repeated a couple times. They also interview people and those are fun too. I think the difference from other podcasts is the casual atmosphere for exposure to the language. Thanks you too!
