Great Podcast, irritating theme song
If give it five stars if it wasn't for the horribly irritating whistling theme tune. Please consider changing it. Otherwise it's an excellent podcast providing edifying doses of mandarin.
Best so far
I have returned to studying Chinese after many years, and I’ve tried several different podcast. I find that this one explains things in a simple but effective manner. Many of the others would not explain grammar. I really appreciate understanding the grammar behind vocabulary. The teacher is very consistent, and repeats things enough times so that I can understand it. I appreciate having the additional, well presented information for a reasonable price in the premium level.
Excellent Mandarin Chinese Learning Podcast!
Great podcast for beginner through intermediate learners of Mandarin Chinese. It would also be nice to have more of the instruction in Mandarin.
Downloadable free Chinese character writing sheets are a nice gift! If they had a clickable link to your site, it would work well to advertise this excellent podcast.
