Weekly Reading
We recommend reading Holly Snape ’s  guide to Resources for Researching with Party and Government Documents, featured in the  latest issue of Neican on March 22. The original version was published as a Wechat  post .

For many of us, watching Chinese TV series is one of the easiest ways to refresh our Mandarin language skills.

To see what TV shows are airing in China, check out CCTV 8 , or browse the gamut of streaming sites such as iQiyi , QQTV and Baidu TV .

The list of 电视剧 below is not comprehensive, but is just to highlight some of the shows that have been popular among Chinese viewers during self-quarantine.
