Worth Your Time
The format of this podcast is brilliant in so many ways. I first admit I haven’t tried to access the study material and transcript which might elevate my learning even further. So let me focus on what I have benefited from. Each week Karen and Bailie have a focus topic. They start by introducing related new words in Chinese (often indicating which tone) followed by the English meaning and its grammatical context/usage i.e. Verb, Adjective etc. The next segment is English words recap followed by the Chinese words to test your memory. Then they challenge you to make a sentence around these words - I love this part the most because it’s contextualised and there are several ways to express yourself which they demonstrate. It progressively moves into conversation and as someone who’s been learning for 7/8 months (I discovered this podcast 3 months ago), I’ve found listening to them at least once a week has helped me expand my vocabulary, inspired me to check up words and as a result even moved into learning to write Hanzi characters instead of resting in pinyin. 谢谢你们,你们辛苦了。下次见我请你喝咖啡 <3

So, it is much easier to understand her - I am not American (but I an immigrant living in Canada). 2. The second guy is...Read full review »
