Stories in Chinese Please

I'm learning Chinese, but what I miss is that most of the sentences are out of context. Maybe that's an old style, but from my experience or my preference, when there is a dialog, you can create associations and remember words easier. I confirmed that with Stories for German (thanks Duolingo). Need that for Chinese too.

It would be nice! I wish for Japanese, also...

I recommend getting childrens books, in the mean time.

They currently only have stories for a very limited number of languages. I agree that it would be amazing if they made it for Chinese (and other languages) too. Preferably also stories that tell something about the culture, but also if it's just a basic story to give the sentences some context, it would make me very happy!

I am also hoping for that. I use them in Spanish and German and they are great Tools. Most of them seemed to be translated from one Language to another. Seems that it would not be too much work to do a few of them.

I am a huge supporter of this, but please do not echo posts. Sorry if this sounds rude, but 6 people have echoed my post on this from last year since and it is frustrating for me when I see yet another. Thank you for your understanding. Link to my original post here.

chinesereadingpractice.com has some great stories, poems and all for beginner, intermediate and advanced! Hope this helps! They also have a translation to english next to it which you can activate or deactivate and if you hover above a chinese word you’ll get the translation and pinyin so if you don’t know a word don’t worry.
