Definitely for intermediate to advanced learners
This is excellent material for practicing Chinese. I get more listening practice here than I ever did in my college Chinese classes. The speed of the speakers is slow and the pronunciation is very clear. The explanations of the new words is done nearly 98% in Chinese which really helps you think in Chinese rather than trying to translate in English. I recommend going to the website and getting the transcription and list of new words with explanation. Another good thing about this podcast is that they don't fill it up with a lot of unnecessary English or explanations of who they are or what you are supposed to do.Read full review »

中国語学習者向けで、基礎や文法講座でない、音が聞ける良い教材を探していて、こんな理想的なPodcastに出会えてよかったです。 配信ペースは週三回程。 時事ニュース、日常会話、ことわざの解説、ちょっとしたお話など、内容も様々で飽きません。 難易度も様々で、ニュースは難しいけど、この日常会話の回はわかる、と思うからモチベーションも保てています。 ニュースなどは、ゆっくり読んだ後で、ネイティブスピードでもう一度読んでくれるのが勉強になります。 ホームページ上にテキストのPDFがあって、会員登録すれば読めるようです。
