Last week I was invited to join two friends who have a business teaching Chinese (Mandarin Blueprint) on their podcast to discuss life in China and learning the language. The conversation is just over an hour long and includes a few disparate topics:

  • What brings expats like us to China
  • Traveling across the country, and to Mongolia in particular
  • Why most expats stop learning Chinese at “ordering in restaurants”
  • Preparing for HSK and achieving the highest levels of language proficiency
  • The launch of their new Mandarin Blueprint coursework

You can download or stream the podcast from their website or mine, or view the video on Youtube.
