Being able to read in another language requires so much more than just vocabulary and grammar. That's why we brought Phil back on the show to highlight some distinct differences between modern written Chinese fiction and the same genre in English.

What is happening on Geopats Podcast this month (November 2019)?
All month I will be doing a range of experimental micro episodes about language. The main focus, as usual in our language show, will be on Mandarin Chinese but I make zero promises to stick to one language. In fact, I fully expect that I will swerve towards and away from other languages throughout the month as well. This experimentation is part of National Podcast Posting Month, NaPodPoMo (it's international really but it started nationally in the U.S. many years ago so the name stuck) http://napodpomo.org/, https://www.facebook.com/groups/napodpomo/ and http://www.rssmix.com/u/9742423/rss.xml
Oh, and I will make reference to my language YouTube channel so here is that link as well https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClzR7HySZTVb6g-tSzAhi5A
