26: Online chat, Song Lyrics & Manga Reading in Mandarin Chinese with French/German Speaker Pascal Hauser
We should all read the same thing to learn a language well, right? Our guest today, Pascal, is a firm believer that interest level is far more important than anything else. You should hear what he used to get to his level of fluency in Mandarin Chinese. No really, you should have a listen, errr, right now. Lol. Here is his Mandarin Chinese reading story.

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
