Listen to Chinese podcasts: 喜马拉雅FM http://www.ximalaya.com
I am using an Android app to listen to podcasts called ‘Podcast Republic‘ and I subscribe to 2 Chinese podcasts:
‘1001 Nights – Bedtime Stories’
Imagine if you had a Chinese mother who read you a story in Chinese every night. 😀
‘A person who listens’? Not sure. I just like the female host’s beautiful soothing voice even though I don’t understand anything she says. 😀
I don’t really listen to them -because I can’t understand a thing-, I just play a 15-30 minute episode in the background while I do household chores. If I lived in China, I would hear Chinese that I don’t understand all the time, right? Maybe that way my brain will understand that those Chinese sounds are important. Maybe. Oh-oh, that reminds me that I forgot again how the sounds of q, zh, ch are different. I’ll read that part again from my textbook later.
So… I googled and found the two podcasts on this Chinese site 喜马拉雅FM: http://www.ximalaya.com/ and there are also tons of other Chinese podcasts to explore there. Just choose an episode and click the orange play button to listen.
