In recent years more and more people from all over the world visit, study and live in China.

But how do the younger generation of oversea students and expats live in China and immerse themselves in Chinese culture?

In the latest Wo Men Podcast, Jingjing and Yajun sit down with Katharina Kempf to learn about her amazing journey in China. She talks about how she became fluent in Chinese language in just three years, her passion for Chinese pop stars, and how she brings Chinese culture back to her home country.
