Slow Chinese 每周漫闻 Membership - take your Mandarin to the next level
The mission of the Slow Chinese 每周漫闻 membership is to be a unique resource to help you learn, use, and understand Chinese language the way people speak it today, supporting you in your journey to master modern Mandarin.
This idiom says it all:
百尺竿头，更进一步 bǎi chǐ gān tóu, gèng jìnyībù
Go even further after having come such a long way
Background: It’s from the Buddhist work, The Jingde Record of the Transmission of the Lamp (景德传灯录 jǐngdé chuándēnglù). It was written during the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), and is about being in constant pursuit for self-improvement and perfection.
In other words: ‘let’s take it to the next level’.

“This is a most valuable service. Particularly valuable will be downloading the audio into Audacity, slowing the speed to 75-80% and practicing the shadowing and chorusing of the audio.”
