Relatable

Thanks for the great show! I am preparing to move to China for a masters program and this podcast has been such a fun way to learn a little from a western perspective. Hopefully I will have a little less culture shock after listening to your new experiences.

Excellent

I know this pod cast is for western people who want to learn Chinese and know more about China, but as a Chinese, I found this series a very good learning material for learning English..

This is especially so if you are preparing for TOFLE or IELTS speaking test. There are so many things in China that we don't know how to describe to western people, such as bike sharing, KTV, etc. But Holly and Nora can describe them perfectly. You can also learn how they express their feelings towards things in China.

I'm not gonna evaluate how good their Chinese is. But what I know for sure is, there English is really good lol. And you can improve your English skills a LOT through this podcast, just like I did.

Anyway, thanks for this excellent podcast.
