Wan An Taipei 晚 安 台 北
Summary: Hi, this is JT. Thanks for tuning in to my Podcast, "Wan An Taipei", where I'll talk about many topics about this city and life in general on Taiwan. There will be free Chinese lessons provided in each episode as well. For more infomation, log on to http://wanantaipei.blogspot.com/ or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Until next time, see you soon and WAN AN! (means "Good evening / night" in Chinese)
Well, in case you forgot, I have another (amongst others) blog MyJapaneseNote.blogspot.com regarding my Japanese learning practice. It's purely for fun. If you are interested, you may check it out. I've attached "cross-over" podcast for your interest. The original post is here. Comments are always welcome. That's it! Last but not least, I hope you all enjoyed your Chinese New Year if you have been celebrating it. I just bought a new Logitech USB Headset 250 today and it's working hand-in-hand with my (old) iMac. Now I have no excuse but to start writing for the next episode of WAT. Stay tuned. Wan an, or should I say, "Sayonara!" JT
With my buddy's help, a new promo is completed! It goes something like this: "...Wie Sie vielleicht schon wissen, bedeutet ,,Wan An" soviel wie guten Abend oder gute Nacht...." Download the new promo here (available now!!) Vielen Danke, Jan!
Night 6: I'm back! I've finally got the chance to sit down and gather my thoughts for this episode. It might not be as what you expected but I think I deserve to express my own opinions regarding language learning. After all, I am a teacher of foreign language and also learning a third (or fourth? fifth?) foreign language myself. 第六晚: 我回來了! 我終於有機會坐下來好好想一想這一集要說什麼。不過可能會跟你想的有點出入, 原因也只不過是我想要稍微表達一下我的意見,因為畢竟我除了在從事外語教學之外,還仍然在學習第三(還是第四? 第五?)外語的同時,所得到的一些想法, 希望和大家一起分享 。 Dì liù wǎn: Wǒ huí lái le!

**Episode 3 is available now!! Click the icon to download or stream it online by visiting my PodcastPickle or Odeo pages.** (and gimme a quick vote!) After several struggles of gathering ideas and sorting information, I am finally putting together all the pieces to make a good show for you. I’ve been extremely busy and handling so many projects altogether. All I know is that a man can only do what a man can do… that is: STOP GIVING ME ALL THE EXTRA WORK!!! Don’t expect me to show up on a free-service at 8 o’clock on Saturday morning while I only got home half-dead every Friday night at 11p.m.! And yes, I will try to do something to my jammed-packed schedule. There’s just too much to handle at the moment. I need more time and space. Ok, enough for the bitching. For the couple of weeks, I successfully (I don’t know if I should say that) got some more emails and comments. Some people suggest me to put out the printable material for reviewing which I agree. So if you out there who need this, please let me know, ok? But considering this is the similar approach that I pick up some basic German and French, I would strongly recommend you to listen to it tons of times. Preferablely 3 times in a row daily! This will deepen your impression and train your ears to get used to the Chinese sound. And in the near future, I will put up a special session focusing on the Chinese tones with its Pin-Yin systems. So stay tuned! I’ve updated my website and added more banners which enable you to Auto-Subscribe if you have newsreaders like NewsBurst, Rojo, Newsgator or Bloglines. But most importantly, you should definitely check out my Podcast Pickles page as well as my Odeo and Yahoo Podcast pages. The links are right on the side bars. If you happen to be on those pages, don’t forget to vote for me if you think my Podcast is cool. Thanks in advance! Aside from that, you can now leave a message without needing to sign up for Blogger because I’ve disabled the function after realizing that I can actually save my audience’s time. So just leave a comment. This would really put a smile on my face :-) And one should never under-estimate the power of word-of-mouth. Take the poll and tell me what you think is the most important quality that you look for in this site?
