Bored with your Chinese textbook? I can feel with you. Reading text means struggle. It’s better to just sit there an listen. If you feel the same, I want to recommend you a youtube channel with lot’s of lessens for beginners and lower intermdiate Chinese learners. Check out Peggy Teaches Chinese.
Peggy is from Taiwan and has created this wonderful channel with numerous lessons. Beginning with saying “Hello” until intermediate topics, like how to get a room on a hotel. I really like the lessons, because their quality is quite high and can be easily be understood (no nasty background noise). Also the videos are quite fun, because Peggy has a lot of energy and the videos are recorded at authentic places. The hotel lesson seems to be recorded in a real hotel, at least some part of it. Furthermore, all important information is displayed in the video subtitles.
Peggy talks pretty standard, but she does have a slight Taiwan accent. A few words are Taiwan specific, but these are so few it doesn’t really matter. And for some people a Chinese lesson straight from Taiwan might just be perfect. There is also a PeggyTeachesChinese Website. There is a little additional content on the website and if you like Peggy’s Chinese tutoring videos you might think about booking her as a teacher. Just check her website. Finally I want to mention, Peggy has really good looks. Even if you don’t want to learn Chinese, you still might be interested.
If you want to learn some Chinese right now, no matter your current Chinese level, head to Peggy Teaches Chinese on youtube right now and select a suitable video lesson.
