Keep Supporting Me on ChinesePod [+Promo Code]

Joining ChinesePod

Late last year I got the chance to join ChinesePod (Wikipedia). This was an amazing opportunity because it meant I got to do what I love doing for a living.

What is ChinesePod

ChinesePod is a company with almost 10 years of history. Founded in Shanghai in 2005, it has been regularly producing audio podcasts for all mandarin levels, from Newbie all the way up to Advanced. During this time they have compiled a massive library of over 3000+ lessons. These lessons are primarily focused on situational dialogues and aim to teach high frequency Mandarin that is used in every day language. If you want to learn mandarin chinese, I highly recommend this site.

What does this mean for

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net shall
    be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    I stay in china for 3 years, but communication is still a big problem. My Chinese friends tell me to attend some online mandarin course,For example: Hanbrige Mandarin school, chinesehour, speakmandarin etc…Because I need systematicness chinese mandarin study. So anyone have good recommendation?

    Well, all I’d like to say it’s that you’re making Mandarin fun to learn. I’m with a very nice lady from Taipei since about a year. Her English it’s excellent and her family speak English pretty well too. But for getting around in Taiwan, learning Mandarin is best. I’m from the Netherlands and 46. It’s not easy to learn, but I’ll do what I can. Do you have a school in Taipei?

    Hey Fiona, I’ve watched all your video clips on Youtube, and then compared those with the free lessons on; I’m based in London and I took inspirations from your youtube videos to draft my own lesson plans for a charity chinese course that I’m going to teach in my office.

    I think that your youtube clips are much more practical than the ones on chinesepod. Hence, I think you should create a little #tag on the Chinesepod website and label them as #followfi so that if a user wants to, he can follow you all the way through.

    Good luck with everything.

  7. One reason I haven’t subscribed to Chinesepod yet is I live in Taiwan and feel like it is too Mainland-centric with the pronunciations, vocabulary, and expressions. After I learn something on there I will ask my Taiwanese girlfriend and she we tell me that we don’t say it like that here. Hopefully you will help give them a more Taiwanese perspective. Maybe it’s just the lessons that I have heard, I did notice on one podcast after they taught a phrase they mentioned it was more of a northern expression and then taught the southern/Taiwanese equivalent. All the actors on the podcasts that I heard had heavy Beijing accents though, not very useful for me here. I am looking for something new as I have almost completed a Taiwan-based Chinese series websites, and I do like the layout and quality of Chinesepod, along with the vast amount of lessons.

    • Hi there. I’ve just updated the blog today which includes a discount code if you’d like to try it. Constance and I are now in complete control of lesson content and podcasts and the mandarin we are teaching is standard mandarin, which basically means, mandarin that would be understood where ever you are. This way we don’t alienate our audience too much. That being said, the voice actors are from Taiwan, and you will pick up some useful expressions that can help you out a lot.
