Listening to Mandarin a lot can really help you to get a “feel” for the language. By listening to it a lot, getting used to the rhythm and intonation, and imitating native speakers, eventually you’ll pick it up and learn it very well. You can use our Chinese Podcast to do this. By exposing yourself to Mandarin on a regular basis, you will improve your listening comprehension, develop your vocabulary, learn how to pronounce and get to know Chinese culture. I hope you will enjoy the podcasts and good luck with your Mandarin.
