Play episode:

What if you are still struggling to get to the point where you can read the lowest-level graded readers? What techniques can get you there? John and Jared will discuss steps you can take to bridge the gap to real reading and also begin to experience the snowball effect of reading in Chinese.

The guest interview is with Abigail Washburn, a Grammy Award–winning bluegrass musician, whose plans to attend law school in Beijing were derailed by a record deal.
