Chinese Myths, Legends & Fables

About This Project

A series of short stories revolving around traditional Chinese myths and folklore for intermediate Mandarin Chinese learners. For now, only the first story is out – the creation myth of Pan Gu the Giant – but I plan on releasing other classics eventually, such as the story of how Goddess Nüwa saved the world by repairing the Pillar of Heaven.
