Chinese listening challenge, September 2023

Each month, I run a challenge to help you improve your Chinese in a specific area through daily practice and friendly competition. As I don’t want to spend one podcast episode every month talking about challenges, I will experiment with different types of content, and this month, it’s a Q&A, as I received many more interesting questions than I could cover in the recent anniversary episode. If you have other ideas for what to cover in these monthly episodes, do let me know! You can learn more about this month’s challenge and sign up here (it’s completely free):
