English Evening 英语之夜

While I’ve referred to it peripherally, I haven’t specifically mentioned the fact that I’ve been hosting an evening radio show called English Evening (英语之夜) on China Business Radio (中国人民广播电台经济之声). It’s broadcast every evening from 9-10 pm. In Beijing, you can listen to it on 96.6FM, and it’s also available in other cities across China. If you can’t get it via radio, you can also listen to the last two weeks’ programs online here.

I started doing the show about three weeks ago with Liu Feifei, who also does programs with CCTV. We worked well together and had a great time, but she had to leave the show last week because her other commitments keep her too busy. The new co-host is a woman named Cynthia, who is back in China after many years in Canada. She does a great job and we have fun working together.

If you’re interested, listen to the show and let us know what you think. You can send us email at englishevening – at – cnr – dot – cn, or leave a comment on this blog. Currently, the format of the show is us talking about various current events, interspersed with popular music and some special features.

    Spend some focused time, and your English will get better and better.

  12. Hello John,
    It is the first time for me to find out this blog here, i don’t know it before!
    First,i have to say that your Chinese language is really very very wonderful,if i don’t know that you are a foreigner that i believe that you are must a chinese!
    Second,where have you been recently? As i found out that someone had taken up your place there for the last two weeks something like that,why?????
    i love “English evening” program very much,and i like to hear you there,i like your accent very much,it is very nice,i can imitate the pronunciation from you. since can’t hear from you there i feel a little bit disappointed and sad with it.
    i have some trouble in reading, especialy doing the reading exam, i always have not enough time to finish it and get a low marks, i am so confused with it, i don’t know how to improve it, can you help me with it?? i will be very appreciate you!!!
    Thank you very much and enjoy your stay in China!! Good luck and have fun!!
    Sincery yours,

  13. Hello john,
    i came across your program when i studied in the college. i loved it very much the first i listened to it, especially your pronunciation and voice. I like sports very much, but i seldom missed your program. i would come back from the playground before 9pm.
    Now i have graduated from the college and got a job in Xiamen. I am sorry but now i seldom have time to listen to the radio because i am always involved in my work. However, you program are still in my mind.Sometimes when i have time i will listen to it online. John,could you tell me how to make a good pronunciation?
    Because i love english, i chose my job which is relevent to english. But due to my poor pronunciation sometimes i make my foreign customers and friends misunderstood. I felt very embarrassed, could you please give me some suggestion ?
    many thanks !
