speak chinese like a native

Petition to extend CPod to include Cantonese, Shanghainese, and other dialects

Posted by sebastian February 25, 2008 in the Group General Discussion .

I am reviving this old topic here, because I have some concrete suggestions how you (ChinesePod) could add other Chinese dialects like Cantonese and especially Shanghainese without spending a lot of resources or taking any risks.

1. Add a new lesson category to the existing ChinesePod site called "Dialects".

2. Select 1-2 of the more popular lessons from various levels and re-record them using Shanghainese and/or Cantonese. Since you already have native Shanghainese speakers on your team, you don't need to hire anybody. If you happen to have a native Cantonese speaker that would be even better.

3. Post the re-recorded lessons in the new "Dialects" category and see how people react to it. If people are not interested, no harm done, no significant resources wasted.
