Language Resources

I think that listening to music in another language can be a great way to learn. Singing along helps you pick up new vocabulary, expressions, cultural tidbits, and is a great way to improve your pronunciation. I’ve started a Mandarin Music Mixtape on Youtube, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you here.

1. I Want it That Way by Gerald Ko

I love this Mandarin rendition of the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way”

2. Love! by Hebe Tien

I discovered this song watching the movie Love.

3. 我只想在乎我在乎的 by Ann

4. Slow Half Beat by Dawen

This song is ridiculously catchy.

5. 一刀不剪 by Aaron Yan

6. Paris by Khalil Fong

Let me know if you have any suggestions of songs that I can add to my playlist! You can see some of the other music that I have on my Mandarin Music Mixtape here.

  • Right now we can’t escape hearing “Xiao Ping Guo” (“Little Apple”) being played constantly in malls or being sung by children walking down the sidewalk. So it’s kind of automatically on our playlists’ repeat.
