      Hey guys,    for all of you that are hungry for listening material, I'd like to signal this podcast I came across recently.    http://voice.beartalking.com/   Although I only listened to a few episodes at the moment, I quite like it as it is interesting, very clear and relatively easy to understand (I would say that it is suitable for students at about HSK 5 ish?)     Looking forward to hearing your opinions, or suggestions if you have similar- or better resources to share.

      Hello I write from Europe, there are very few Chinese restaurants in my area. One of them has delicious Sichuan beef sirloin on the menu. I would like to learn how to make it, I have tried many recipes from the internet and this is still not it. I have a problem to get a "watery" sauce and a clear spicy, salty and sour taste. My dishes do not have this clear salty and sour taste and the whole is sticky or reduced. There are instructions in the recipes that I have, I don't know what to change or what I do wrong. Or these recipes are wrong. Do any of you have a good and tested recipe for such a dish?   I use Doubanjiang paste because it is recommended in many recipes. Please, help, because Im lack ideas!

      We currently study together online 3 times a week, starting a few months ago. We follow a book and work through the speaking drills and activities, and expand on them a bit. I like the lessons with her a lot. She's very strict with tones and grammar - I love this. Any mistake in either department, I have to say the whole sentence again correctly. She speaks slowly and deliberately, much more slowly and clearly than people I talk to in real life.    Last lesson, with no prompting from me, she asked if I think she should speak faster. I told her I'm happy with the lessons as they are, but I will think about it. I'd like to know others opinions on how the teacher should speak, keeping in mind I'm still pretty low level (i.e. last class we were working on sentences like 我们下个星期一可以到山上去, 他的孩子明年打算去美国结婚。

      Are these as much of a thing as they used to be? I’m talking about the well paid (accommodation included) packages for Western professionals to go and work in China. i would have thought as the local workforce is increasingly educated - and cheaper - that these are starting to disappear? Do people in China still have friends or people they know on these kinds of packages? I remember meeting an Italian guy who was making effectively 70,000 Euros a year, tax-free, and had his accommodation paid too - for essentially working as an electrical engineer in a factory in a 3rd tier city. I just can't imagine companies are making those offers anymore?

      Guideinchina reports that WeChat pay is trialling a collaboration with Visa, Mastercard and AmEx, which would allow foreigners without a Chinese UnionPay card to finally pay for stuff without having a local bank account.   Meanwhile The Beijinger also reports that the international version of the Alipay APP is now able to use the "Tour Pass" mini-program to pay for stuff via a "prepaid card service provided by the Bank of Shanghai" that can be topped up in RMB using an international credit or debit card.
