Extensive listening challenge, October 2014

Extensive listening is one of the most important activities when learning a foreign language. In this sense, extensive means that you should listen as much as possible, covering as much material as you can, rather than digging deep into each audio clip. Try to listen to Chinese at or below your level and try to listen a lot! Read the article that will be published on Thursday for more information and inspiration.
