Chinese Listening Practice Resources

1. Coffee Break Chinese

Difficulty: Beginner to Intermediate (HSK 1-4)

Availability: WebsiteiOSAndroidSpotify

Price: Free podcast; course available for $145

Designed for learners, this 40-episode podcast is ideal for beginner and intermediate Chinese speakers.

Each episode is hosted by Mark, the founder of Coffee Break Languages, and Crystal, a native Chinese speaker. During the episodes, Crystal answers Mark’s questions about Chinese and corrects his pronunciation.

Episodes are 15-20 minutes long because they’re structured more like lessons than regular podcast talk shows. But if you want to improve your listening and learn how the language works at the same time, Coffee Break Chinese is a great place to hang out.

Each episode is free and makes for perfect on-the-go learning material, but Coffee Break goes even further and offers courses based on their episodes via Coffee Break Academy. These courses feature video and audio lessons, a lesson guide, transcript and a bonus audio episode.

2. FluentU

Difficulty: Beginner to Advanced (HSK 1-6)

Availability: WebsiteiOSAndroid

Price: Free trial; monthly and yearly subscriptions available

FluentU uses authentic Chinese videos to create personalized language lessons. The videos are made by and for native speakers, so you can be sure you’re hearing the language as it’s really used.

Each FluentU video comes with an array of learning tools—such as interactive captions and a contextual visual dictionary—so you can also be sure that you’ll be able to fully comprehend everything you hear.

There are post-video quizzes and multimedia flashcards to help you test what you’ve learned. Plus, if there’s specific vocabulary you want to study, you can search the program to find all videos containing that word or term.

The platform boasts a large video library that’s conveniently organized by topic and difficulty, so there’s plenty of variety to suit every learner’s interests.

3. Learn Mandarin Chinese – Chinese Audio Lessons

Difficulty: Beginner to Advanced (HSK 1-5)

Availability: WebsiteiOSAndroidSpotify

Price: First 100 lessons free; subscriptions starting at $77 for six months

Listening skills are so important if you want to be able to hold a conversation with a native speaker. This podcast from Melnyks Chinese is a perfect tool to reach this goal.

Each episode covers situational dialogues that you may have to use at some point if you travel abroad. The speaker pronounces each word slowly and clearly, and leaves time for listeners to repeat.

Members can access PDF transcripts of each episode, plus worksheets to help further improve comprehension skills. The podcast is suitable for almost all levels of learners, though advanced learners may find some of the dialogues too easy.

For a little culture, try out the episodes “Visiting Hot Springs” and “Expressing Condolences.” Note that the first 100 lessons are free, but you’ll have to sign up for an account to access the rest.

4. Slow Chinese Podcast

Difficulty: Beginner to Intermediate (HSK 1-4)

Availability: Apple PodcastsPodbean iOSPodbean Android

Price: Free

If listening to native Chinese speakers talk at their natural speed stresses you out, you’ll love the Slow Chinese Podcast.

While it is made by native speakers, they intentionally talk at a slower rate so Chinese learners can keep up. An authentic podcast that’s not only designed for learners but also doesn’t contain any English? That’s something you don’t see every day!

The lessons are two to three minutes long on average, making this podcast perfect for shadowing or transcribing material. It was last updated in 2018, but with over 200 episodes, you won’t be getting bored anytime soon.

5. Learn Mandarin Now Podcast

Difficulty: Beginner (HSK 1-3)

Availability: Podbean iOSPodbean Android

Price: Free

Learn Mandarin Now stopped running in 2017, but it features a ton of Chinese language content, including how-to guides, Chinese language lessons and even success stories from other Mandarin learners.

This is a strong resource for beginners because it features a lot of inspiring listening content to get newbies motivated when the going gets rough.

I recommend listening to “How to talk about success in Mandarin Chinese,” a thought-provoking episode that explores what it means to be successful and how to talk about these concepts in Chinese.

And if you’re learning Chinese for business or just want to learn technology-related vocab, “Fixing technical problems in Mandarin Chinese” is a good listen.

6. Chinese Track Podcast

chinese track podcast logo

Difficulty: Beginner (HSK 1)

Availability: WebsiteiOSAndroid

Price: Free

This entry is a little different from the previous podcasts I’ve mentioned.

There isn’t a ton of spoken Chinese in every episode. Instead, the purpose of the Chinese Track podcast is to interview people who have learned Mandarin as a second language.

You’ll listen to other Chinese learners explain the approaches they took to improve their language skills throughout their own journey. Much of it involves perfecting listening skills. Sometimes, a little advice from the ones who’ve made it can go a long way!

This podcast resource last updated in 2016, but there are plenty of episodes available for Chinese audio practice. I suggest listening to the Alex Trup and Xiao Fei interview episodes.

7. Learning Chinese Through Stories

learning chinese through stories logo

Difficulty: Beginner to Advanced (HSK 1-6)

Availability: WebsiteYouTubeSpotify

Price: Some free content; subscriptions starting at $7 per month

Learning Chinese Through Stories is another resource with exclusively Chinese audio to help you hone your listening skills.

Each episode is led by two narrators who read and discuss a short story or song. They speak at a natural pace, which may be slightly intimidating for complete beginners, but the content and discussion is never more challenging than the given level, and it’s very conversational.

Speaking of levels, the episodes are divided into nine levels, from Low Novice to High Advanced, in order to accommodate all learners.

While you’re following along, I highly recommend that you add words to your personal flashcard set. For access to vocabulary annotations, full transcripts and other handy extras from each episode, feel free to support the podcast on Patreon.

8. Top Chinese Songs 2023

Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced (HSK 4-6)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

If you need some help finding Mandarin music, here are 60 music videos waiting for you to explore!

These songs aren’t just great learning tools, they’re also relevant and popular. The advantage is that you’ll be learning with and listening to music that’s up-to-date so you can talk about it with Chinese friends or language partners.

It’s also important to note that since this is a playlist of recent music videos, it’s regularly updated. That means you’re consistently being exposed to new Chinese jams! A lot of them are also slower, making them perfect shadowing material.

9. 42 Essential Sentence Patterns – Intermediate Chinese Listening Practice

Difficulty: Intermediate (HSK 3-4)

Availability: YouTube | Website

Price: Free

It’s crucial to learn sentence patterns when studying Chinese, especially as a novice learner. Once you have sentence patterns down, you’ll have some grammatical context to work from when learning vocabulary words throughout your language learning journey.

This video is an excellent crash course in 42 essential sentence structures in Mandarin. The comments section is loaded with happy learners who found this video to be quite a lifesaver.

It would be wise to watch this video as a beginner or intermediate learner, especially if you’re learning these sentence patterns in an already established course but are struggling to keep up when you hear them in real life.

10. 35 Minutes of Chinese Listening Comprehension for Beginners

Difficulty: Intermediate (HSK 3-4)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

Visual learners, you’re in luck. This half-hour video guide from ChineseClass101 is an incredible, condensed lesson on listening comprehension in Chinese.

While the video is marketed towards beginners, many learners in the comments section have noted that the dialogues are notably more difficult than advertised.

I recommend checking this video out if you’re an upper-novice to upper-intermediate learner.

11. TiffwithMi

Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced (HSK 4-6)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

These Singaporean YouTubers are extremely entertaining, addicting to watch and subtitle their videos in Chinese and English!

Their channel is full of challenges, pranks, vlogs, travel videos and much more. Needless to say, it’ll take a while before you get bored with their content.

If you want to learn some useful Chinese vocabulary and phrases, their vlogs are packed with learning material. And the fact that there are Chinese and English subs make it even easier to recognize grammar patterns and learn new words through meaningful context.

Videos are usually about 10-15 minutes long, so they aren’t ideal for shadowing, but if you want to chill in bed and binge-watch YouTube while feeling productive and improving your Chinese, this channel will suit your fancy!

12. Easy Mandarin

Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced (HSK 4-6)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

The YouTube channel Easy Languages is known for turning unscripted interviews with native speakers into valuable language lessons.

The channel has playlists for many languages, from Hungarian to Vietnamese, and their Chinese playlist has 85 videos and counting.

Each video features a new topic, such as “What do you like about Taiwan?”, “Politics and elections in Taiwan,” “What does freedom mean to you?” and much more. Plus, each video is subtitled in English, Chinese characters and pinyin, so you’re bound to pick up some new vocab.

The videos are recorded in Taiwan, so if you want to study Taiwanese Mandarin and the Taiwanese accent, in particular, these videos are the perfect study materials.

However, the difference between Standard Mandarin and Taiwanese Mandarin isn’t huge, so Standard Mandarin learners will find them just as beneficial!

13. Slow Chinese Listening & Chinese Reading Practice

Difficulty: Beginner to Intermediate (HSK 2-5)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

This playlist is a compilation of stories told in Mandarin. Not only are they good for practicing your listening skills, but they’re also very entertaining and give deep insights into Chinese culture.

Many of the videos are labeled “Beginner” or “Intermediate/Advanced,” so you know exactly which videos to focus on. Some are even labeled with their corresponding HSK level!

Similar to Easy Mandarin, each video in this playlist is accompanied by English, Chinese characters and Pinyin subtitles.

Although these stories are great for listening to at any time of the day, I recommend you listen to each story twice: once in the morning, and then once more right around bedtime. This brings us nicely to the next listening resource, too!

14. Chinese Vocabulary for Beginners

Difficulty: Beginner to Intermediate (HSK 1-4)

Availability: YouTube

Price: Free

If you haven’t tried to learn while you sleep, it’s about time you did!

Despite sleep learning being a controversial subject, with research indicating varying levels of effectivity, lots of educators seem to be on board with it. This clip is one of many YouTube videos teaching common Chinese vocabulary words to sleepers.

One study, however, demonstrates that this type of studying only improves information recall, meaning that new information wasn’t retained, but previously learned vocab and structures were actually reinforced.

Only you can be the judge of whether it works for you or not, so it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot! As long as you treat sleep learning as a review session rather than a new listening lesson, you might see some benefits.

15. Living Language Mandarin Chinese

Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced (HSK 4-6)

Availability: WebsiteiOS | Android

Price: Subscriptions from $4.99 to $49.99

Watching entertaining content is a fantastic way to work on your listening skills, especially if the content is heavy in dialogue.

AsianCrush is a streaming website for movies and shows of Chinese, Japanese and Korean content. There are quite a few genres available, so you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.

AsianCrush usually provides subtitles in both the native language and English. For beginners, I suggest putting on English subtitles to help you with listening comprehension. For intermediate and advanced learners, Chinese subtitles would be preferable.

Some videos don’t have subtitles, which would be useful for advanced learners who really need to hone in on their listening skills.

How To Use These Resources to Improve Chinese Listening Skills

  • Use them daily. Practice makes perfect! But it’s important to do more than just recite Chinese word. Utilizing these resources—even just one or two of them—on a daily basis can help you attain your larger Chinese-learning goals.
  • Incorporate them into your Chinese learning routine. These resources can easily accompany an already established learning schedule. Whether you’re taking a college course or studying online with a self-made plan, these resources can complement what you already have in place.

    Additionally, if you’re still searching for a primary resource, many of these programs can work as your main learning material that you can base your study routine on, too.

  • Quality over quantity. Twenty-six resources for Chinese listening practice is a lot. You don’t have to use all of them!

    First, try as many of as you can to see which ones resonate with your learning style. Then narrow your list down to two or three resources for daily use. Once you find the right resources for you, they can have lasting value throughout your language learning journey.

  • Practice the shadowing technique. This involves listening to audio materials in Chinese and repeating after the native speaker almost instantly. Not only does it improve your listening skills, it also improves your accent, pronunciation and speaking skills.

    While shadowing might be a bit overwhelming for beginner Chinese learners, it’s the perfect challenge for intermediate and advanced speakers. From movies and TV shows to entertaining vloggers and even video games, anything you can listen to, you can shadow.

  • Use Chinese subtitles instead of English. If you’re an intermediate Chinese learner, you should be trying to become less reliant on English subtitles. There are several resources that allow you to completely remove the English subtitles and replace them with Chinese ones.

    Using Chinese subtitles makes it easier to learn new vocabulary and recognize grammar patterns. Plus, if you still don’t feel 100% confident in your listening skills, Chinese subtitles can help ensure you don’t miss anything important.

  • Transcribe everything you hear. Similar to shadowing, transcribing means you’ll write what you hear as you hear it. The best resources for this are songs and podcast episodes that include transcriptions of the show.

    After you’ve transcribed the material, look up the actual lyrics online or refer to the transcription to compare your version to what was actually said. Correct yourself where you were wrong, then listen to the audio again while reading the right transcription to correct your hearing as well.

How to Nail the HSK with Chinese Listening Practice

Imagine watching Chinese-language media without any subtitles at all. Imagine communicating smoothly with native speakers. Imagine laughing with your Chinese-speaking friends, feeling totally at ease in the conversation.

Those are just a couple of reasons why you have to practice Chinese listening! It’s a vital language skill to master if you want to make your way to fluency.

Listening comprehension is also necessary if you plan on taking the HSK, or the 汉语水平考试 (hàn yǔ shuǐ píng kǎo shì). The original six HSK levels measure your Mandarin reading, writing and listening skills.

In terms of listening skills, this is what was required for each level:


  • Recognize familiar everyday expressions and basic phrases
  • Answer personal questions about age, nationality, where you live, what you have, etc.


  • Understand expressions related to basic topics like family, shopping, jobs, etc.
  • Communicate in simple exchanges


  • Answer questions and draw comparisons
  • Understand expressions and ideas related to work, school, travel


  • Understand main ideas on concrete and abstract subjects
  • Understand native speech with little to no difficulty


  • Understand the news and other settings where formal language is used


  • Understand all spoken Chinese
  • Effectively express yourself in Chinese

Note that these are the well-known but previous levels of the HSK, which we’ve retained for clarity and familiarity. Information about the new version of the HSK can be found here and in the bulleted lists below.

Even if you have no plans to take the HSK, it’s good to know what listening skills are expected to give you a sense of your own proficiency level. Many books, apps and websites use HSK levels (still mostly the old ones) to gauge difficulty. Knowing your levels in each language area will help you find appropriate learning resources.

Now, here’s what you need to know about the New HSK listening portion: 

New HSK 1

  • Slow speaking speed (around 100 characters/min)
  • Understand simple dialogues using basic words and simple sentences
  • Understand basic information with the help of pictures

New HSK 2

  • Relatively slow speaking speed (around 140 characters/min)
  • Understand simple sentences and some compound sentences

  • Understand both informal and formal dialogues and speeches
  • Normal speaking speed with natural accent and non-exaggerated intonation (220-240 characters/min)
  • Understand others despite speech impediments or differences in proficiency level
  • Recognize speakers’ intentions and related cultural factors

New HSK 7
