I’m trying to come up with a good audio/reading synergistic strategy. I like listening to the 2 minute articles of Chairmen’s Bao and watching CCTV news with full transcripts.
However, I was considering language learning with netflix (Language Reactor) and Migaku for full fledged movies. I’ve found though for me personally, the image can be a little distracting. And instead, I wanted buy audio books and the corresponding ebook. Especially so I can copy and paste some key sentences into google translate. And I believe I’ll be able to control scaling this a little bit easier than watching full fledged movies.
Thus far, I bought the Mandarin Companion Ebook and the corresponding audiobook. That process was very simple because I very easily found an ebook and found the audible version of the book. Even though I bought the “Great Expectations” level 2 book - it is a little too easy for my level.
I have around 2,100 of the top 3k Chinese charachters. I’m around HSK 5 level (HSK 4 I have near 100% understanding).
I wanted to find the best way to find perhaps a Chinese fantasy/fiction Ebook and then find the corresponding Chinese fantasy/fiction Audiobook. But I’m having trouble navigating some of the chinese websites and a lot of the chinese library listed in Audible - if I copy and paste the book into Amazon, I only see the audiobook version --not the "ebook or even ‘normal book’ version.
Ideally I want to find the Roald Dahl (which is a little easier that Harry Potter) equivalent Chinese author and then be able to find both the audiobook and ebook. And then slowly scale from here.
Is there a website or websites that any of you go to in order to do something like this?
Also anyone find any good Baihua versions of Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Journey to the West? I would imagine there are middle school versions of these classics as well as high school versions, and college versions. If there was possibly a good romance of the three kingdoms highschool baihua version in audio book form and an ebook form, this might be exactly what I’m looking for.
