What is one of the best free ways to learn Chinese? Television!
By watching shows or drama, you can learn how native speakers communicate in certain situations, and improve your listening! Furthermore, ALL Chinese shows and movies have subtitles which makes it even more appropriate to learn Chinese. The reason for Chinese subtitles is, that there are too many Chinese accents. So, it is hard to watch a movie while understanding just some parts of a conversation. Therefore, Chinese people usually pay more attention to the subtitle than to the movie itselfs, even though there are a lot of great Chinese actors who are worth it to pay attention to.

So, if you decide to give Chinese tv shows a chance, you should know which ones are worth it to be seen. It doesn’t matter what language level you have. Listening to native speakers will help you later on.

Today, we want to recommend you some Chinese drama series. They are perfect to learn more about daily conversations and even beginners will catch up some words they have learned quite fast.
