3: Language: Mandarin Chinese and English language natives share their language stories, methods and challenges: Yifei & Phil
This is our first group chat about Simplified Mandarin Chinese. In this episode we have Yifei, a Chinese college student in Shanghai and Phil from episode 2 fame (he's British), who is a Master's student and also works in Shanghai. They share their own language learning stories, their successes and challenges in an open, blunt and friendly group conversation.
In this episode we chat with Angie, Creator of the T(h)ree of Books YouTube channel. Angie is from Germany and had a few languages under her belt before moving to Shanghai, China and studying Mandarin Chinese. Angie decided to take the time to study Mandarin Chinese in a classroom setting the first few months she was in the city and that is what our conversation revolves around. I have been curious about Chinese language classes in China so her description really kept my attention. She also shares tips, comparisons to her previous languages and her potential future in Mandarin Chinese as well.
