Student Q&A, March 2024: Reading aloud, finding word boundaries, and working actively with reading materials

This week’s podcast episode (number 187) is a reader and listener Q&A, where I answer three questions sent to me about reading in Chinese. This time around, I’ll answer questions about reading aloud in Chinese, how to find the boundaries between words in a Chinese text and how to work actively with reading materials to retain more of what you read.
