How to Use ChinesePod
Yesterday ChinesePod launched the first episode of our new How to Use ChinesePod series. This short series will span four shows, and will cover the basics of ChinesePod to help you get the most out of your studies.
We recently asked you, our users, about what you struggle with in your Chinese studies. We received a lot of great feedback that fell into two main categories: using ChinesePod specifically and studying Chinese in general. We are addressing the former in How to Use ChinesePod, and hope to address the latter in a future series.
The first episode, which aired in place of News and Features last week (during August and September we’ll be alternating between the How To series and News and Features), focused on the topic of levels. Check it out and let us know what you think!
Check out the show here.

Thanks Catherine! How do we add the lesson channel please? I can't make the link to subscribe on the lesson channel pages work any more, and there doesn't seem to be a "How to use chinesepod" group just yet?
xiao_liang - The unsubscribe button on the lessons page is not working properly and the tech. team is in the process of publishing an update. For the time being you can join the group. This will allow you to see all the conversations related to the series, as well as receive all new lessons in your feed/dashboard: How to Use ChinesePod Group
Thanks for the update catherine!
I couldn't see that group before you liked to it. Unfortunately, now I can't seem to get the join button to work! Possibly a short-term technical thing related to the same thing? I'll leave it a while and try again.
Strange - I just left the group and joined again and it seemed to function properly. If you still can't successfully join the group after a few minutes please let me know and I'll have the tech. team look into it.
I agree - this content will be very helpful for potential and new customers, in addition to long-term customers who want to get more out of the website. Potential customers will be able to listen to these shows during their week-long free trial.
