What kind of zombie wrote these "stories"?

Oh, Lord, this is so boring. Who wants to know about Sarah and her admin job, her boring husband and inept child? How to book a hotel in England or drive on the motorway? This is awful drudgery. As if people crazy enough to want to learn Chinese are doing it because we can't wait to be able to argue whether we prefer the coach or the train, or driving in traffic jams??? I certainly don't. The women voices are pleasant, very clear enunciation however. What a waste of their talent.

Improving my chinese language skills

I found the option in this audible to increase or decrease the speed of the narration very interesting, because it allows the listeners to adapt the narration to their level of Chinese.

Fun way to learn chinese

Listening to the story on Audible, it really helped me become more immersed in the story as I didn't have to worry about how words would be pronounced, which sometimes takes me out of the story, if I were to read it on my own.

Improve my pronunciation in Chinese

The audio version features clear pronunciation and a slightly slower pace to native Chinese speakers, helping those like me who or are very much beginners, to follow the stories and become immersed in them, and the language itself.

Highly recommended

The narration is slow, understandable and distinct. The recording is clear and of good quality, gives you pleasure listening to Chinese. Would recommend to somebody who wants to listen to Chinese language and learn some new words, as you can actually hear each one of them!

Great for beginners

I know that when you are just learning Chinese it is very hard to grasp Chinese people speaking, as they speak fast. This book will help you to get used to listen and comprehend the Chinese language.
