questions from new subscriber

Hi there. I love ChinesePod so far!  But I'm having a problem setting a new "active lesson" -- I can't get it off the free lesson.  How do I change it?  I can't find that anywhere on the website.  Also, on my iPhone app, it's only showing me the free level -- how do I access the other lessons?  (I just subscribed for a month, at the Premium level.)

Thanks in advance!

p.s. I love the way these lessons are produced, btw.  It's v. clear, interesting, and well presented.

 Hi, I have the same question, I think the only way you can change the active lesson is if you subscribe to "classes"? If this it the case it is a pain!

Hi guys,

If you've just subscribed, there's two things that we might need to look at:

1. Subscription lessons are found in the "Self-Study" area rather than the course area.

2. If you've just updated your subscription settings, you might not see immediate changes in your lesson list. Changing the levels you follow will only affect what newly published lessons appear in your list, not older lessons. As new lessons are published, they'll appear in your study list at the levels you've selected.

Lessons can be manually added to your list by looking through the ChinesePod library and using the ChinesePod bookmarking tools, found under the title image on the lesson page.

Let me know if that helps.
