All about Chinese Podcasts – Helping you to learn Chinese

Welcome to our Chinese learning website!

The aim of our site is to provide you with a wide range of Chinese podcasts to make it easy for you to learn Chinese. We explore and review available Chinese podcasts to deliver you the very best there is to offer. We take a slightly unusual approach to other sites in that we simply try to give you as much information as possible, to enable you to find great resources for improving your listening and speaking skills in Chinese. Some of the links we provide also have options for learning Chinese vocabulary and practise writing Chinese characters, to help you on your way to fluency! Learning Chinese can be difficult but luckily, there’s a huge range of different resources online to make things easier for you.

The two main kinds of Chinese podcasts:

  • Chinese learning podcasts– these podcasts are specifically targeted for people learning Chinese and are graded into different levels of language ability. These podcasts often include additional interactive or downloadable options. From audio transcripts to vocabulary, these podcasts have been carefully created by language learning professionals. Many Chinese learning podcasts also include English instructions to help the listener understand what they have just heard, making them ideal for complete beginners. While the majority of our Chinese podcasts are for learning Mandarin Chinese, we also have podcasts and resources available for learning Cantonese.

We have some special discounts for learning Chinese available here.

  • Native Chinese podcasts– these podcasts are aimed at Chinese-speaking people and are not graded into different language abilities. Does this mean they can’t be used by non-native speakers for learning Chinese? Of course not! These are a great resource for learners with advanced speaking levels looking for more challenging material. However, for beginner and lower levels, these native Chinese podcasts are likely unsuitable. It’s recommended to be at least an intermediate or advanced learner to fully benefit from these native podcasts.

Our most recent Chinese podcasts reviews were added in November 2016.

What languages are Chinese learning podcasts available in?

  • The vast majority of language-learning podcasts are in Mandarin Chinese.
  • There are also some language-learning podcasts for people learning Cantonese.
  • And there are a small amount of language-learning podcasts for other dialects used in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan (ie Taiwanese, Hokkien, Minnanhua etc)

What languages are native Chinese podcasts in?

Almost all the Chinese languages and dialects that you can think of! Many of the native podcasts are available in Mandarin, as well as some in Cantonese. Some of the podcasts are from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, while other podcasts come from abroad aimed at Overseas Chinese communities. For our reviews, we only focus on reviewing podcasts in Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese Chinese.
