Learn Chinese in everyday, practical situations

I love starting my day with this podcast. It’s a great way to practice listening to Mandarin and getting familiar with the vocabulary, tones, and idioms in everyday situations. Its something I don’t get enough of in my Chinese studies - it balances the more textbook-style approach to learning Chinese. I end up learning so much about Chinese culture and the context and meaning behind the language. I highly recommend! 谢谢您们!

Amazing show to learn about Chinese related stuff!

Not only language, I learned about the culture, the society and the history with this podcast! A must-listen-to in my life now!

Chinese-American listener

As someone who grew up listening to my parents speaking Chinese (but rarely replied back in Chinese) and who’s skills are on the low-mid intermedia level, I really enjoy listening to this podcast. I was looking for a podcast that was easily digestible and that will help me keep up with my rusty chinese, and possibly improve upon it.

I like that the tone is conversational and the Chinese speaker is native. It’s a way to pick up new vocabulary and revisit/learn new phrases.
