At first I didn’t care for this type of podcast due to the nonstandard pronunciation. But the more I listened and read Nathan’s podcasts the more I realized just how much effort he puts into ensuring that the listener can follow along.
This is a wonderful podcast for intermediate Chinese learners. It is clearly the result of a lot of time and care. The subjects are interesting and varied, ranging from contemporary events to history / culture to simplified versions of Chinese texts (which I particularly enjoy).
So thankful to have finally found a Mandarin language podcast at the level I need. Everything out there is too simple or too difficult. TeaTime Chinese is perfect. Nathan speaking speed is spot on for intermediate learners and his topics are interesting.
