About JZ

Come learn Chinese idioms with me on my podcast!!!


Hello to all my friends here,
and thanks for joining me on the journey to learning Chinese idioms.

Let me take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself and why I decided to start this podcast.
I’m a part-time English teacher and a mother.
I work every evening teaching at a cram school, and spend my days with my child, finding the time to write these articles, then recording them after midnight.
As you can guess, I’m quite a slow producer as my recording time and working time are limited.
The reason I started this podcast is because I found that Chinese idioms can easily kill a Chinese learner's confidence, as they were never taught how to use them properly, and not many teachers out there are teaching them.

I started this podcast purely for the enjoyment of sharing my love of Chinese language and idioms.

Because I realized that my time is too limited to help each person individually, I decided a podcast was the best way to share this love to a broader audience.

My goal for starting this Patreon site is primarily to give people who like learning Chinese idioms a platform to communicate with me.
While I will always make this podcast free for all, I greatly appreciate any support – no matter how small - from generous listeners, to help me to continue producing content and keep sharing this passion with others.
