Episode 40 | 第一次和听众对话!First time talking to a listener!
Today I have a very special guest for the podcast - a listener from Singapore! OKJ, who is now living in Singapore and a documentary director, has been learning Chinese for the past one year through this podcast channel. He reached out to me two weeks ago, and here we are, for the first time ever, with an episode with a fan! Check out OKJ's super cool documentary series on TikTok or his Youtube channel to see his journey of Chinese learning. He also does interviews and documents interesting stories entirely in Chinese.
