I’m excited to announce the official launch of the I’m Learning Mandarin podcast. Each episode I will discuss a new topic regarding how best to learn Chinese, drawing on stories and insights from my experience of learning Mandarin outside of China over the past four years. The first episode is based on my blog about Mandarin tones. In the future, I plan to include interviews and free discussions with interesting people who can offer intelligent insight into the process of learning Chinese.
In Episode 1, I discuss common problems elementary and lower intermediate learners encounter when learning tones. My aim is to help learners who are grappling with tones realise the difficulties they experience are entirely normal but will get better over time.
