Listen to a past cctv4 video https://youtu.be/apr4sC2Lp0s
Now that I finished, I am going to look at the brief write up on the video, of course I will have to look at each chinese character.

Cool. Why CCTV4?

Why CCTV? Because it is Chinese speaking news and shows, and it was the first source to come to mind when doing 'listening' practice. You have actual Chinese speakers of China speaking. Plus, they have interesting food documentaries I like 😊

Ha! That one you linked /did/ seem interesting! I was just curious about why you picked CCTV4 out of the the crazy 17(?) different CCTV channels. But I get it now. Hoping I too can get to a point where I can understand people talking that fast before long.

I don't understand alot of what is being said, but for a few words here and there. My reading skill is better than my listening skill. Since listening is most important, it is best that I listen to what they (Native Speaking Chinese( would listen to so that my ears become acclimated to the sound :) Usually, I will pick the videos on CCTV4 that seem interesting.

Thanks for the link - I've started (background) watching this series now.

Listened to past video news from CCTV 4. A few words that stood out, I looked up online (yabla.com has a dictionary).
