ChinesePod still worth it?

Recommended Posts


Dear all,

I used ChinesePod about 3 years ago and was quite happy. But it changed a lot since then (new teachers, at least 2 years ago there was quite a shortage of new material), do you think it is still worth paying for? I ask especially in regards to the big discount today.

It isn't for me, but for a relatively new learner, who wants to use it in addition to a textbook.


Thanks for your advice/input.

I don't have an answer for you, but I also used Chinesepod around the same time-frame, and I have the same question.  I might give it a try for a short while either way.


As a side note: there is a Chinese internet slang word for bumping (i.e.: reviving) a forum post that I wanted to use here, but I forgot the term.  Does anyone know what it could be?


我没有回答。  我在3年前使用过Chinesepod。我也有您的问题。 我想试一下。
