    为什么用中文说唱?!Why rap in Chinese?

    Enjoyment

    Learning a language is a journey. There are all kinds of twists, turns, dead-ends and even accidents along the way. What keeps us learning is the enjoyment, which rapping delivers.

    Confidence

    In Slovak there is a proverb: "The more languages you know, the more human you are". To speak another language, you need to loosen up and change your personality to adapt. Pretending to be a rapper helps you get through the awkwardness.

    Fluency

    Speaking well requires lots of repetition. How can you make that fun, rather than repetitive and dull? By practising your rap until it sounds smooth.

    Independence in learning

    We learn languages to express our own ideas, not those suggested by a textbook, a teacher, or an exam. Get a theme, get an idea, and go write a rap about it. You'll find the words you need in the process.

  • 关于我们 Who we are

    关键人物 The people who work hard to keep the podcast nice

    马老师

    The one who started it

    A lover of languages, and teacher of Chinese and Spanish who spent 8 life-changing years in China. A student of all things Chinese, and lifelong admirer of the ancient capital of Xi'an. Now living, working, and occasionally rapping in London.

    胡老师

    the one who keeps things professional

    As Chinese as she is Malaysian, 胡老师 is the one who makes sure we get things done properly, on time and to the best standard we can. Loved by all, admired by many, and possibly even imitated by some, she is our secret weapon whose creativity and eye for detail are matched only by her good humour.

    Niall Lavelle

    the one with all the musical talent

    Half man, half drum, Niall is the one who creates, crafts, and produces all the musical magic. From dreaming up beats to helping people discover their inner rapper, he is the Godfather of the studio. A founding member of Gentleman's Dub Club and a hip-hop producer in his own right, Niall is the mortar that holds the whole building together.

    Maddalena Ghezzi

    the one with all the crazy ideas

    She flourished in a Beijing Hutong with a Gingko tree in the yard. Her love of generating sounds keeps her studying languages and music. Her passion for music, in particular singing, brought her to explore different genres and vocal styles. She runs three projects: FUWAH, Stanza Da Tre and Wells Reflections and collaborates with many artists in different fields. Oh yeah, and she can sing and rap in Mandarin like a professional.
