用中文来学中文 Authentic Chinese Stories instructed in Chinese
“ 听故事学中文” （Learning Chinese through stories）is a platform for learners who are interested in learning Mandarin Chinese through classic and popular stories of Chinese culture.
The two podcast hosts Xiaomin and Xian are both experienced Chinese teachers who currently work in the U.S. (Rumba is also going to help!).
Each podcast has two parts:one part is storytelling and the other one is a lesson that illustrates new vocabularies and grammatical structures. The transcripts of each story and a vocabulary glossary can also be found on our website. What makes this podcast special is that all the instructions are given in the Chinese language.
“听故事学中文” is a platform for learners who are interested in learning Mandarin Chinese through classic and popular stories of Chinese culture. Originally, “听故事学中文” focused on broadcasting story lessons for intermediate and above learners through podcast. As an e-learning resource, its distinguishing features are the use of authentic materials, more than 95% target language, natural talk and it has an explanation session that has a plethora of recap and repetitions for listeners to follow. As a learner-centered platform, “听故事学中文” always looks forward to hearing from our listeners and we always integrate your needs and interest into our curriculum design. Among our story collection, 3 story categories are all from our listeners. We also make personal communication with our listeners about the effectiveness of instructional strategies in each story explanation.
