Overview of all chinesepod lessons?
Does anyone know if there is a list (excel?) with an overview of all the lessons? Thx. :-)

With the new "full list" function in the "Channels" tab (in "Lessons") you can compile such a list with medium effort.
In Excel2007 you can directly import tables from the web (I don't know the translations of the German menus but I guess it is something like "Data->Import External Data->From the Web"). Select the Full List for the level of your choice. You need one import for all pages of the Full List: 3 for Upper Intermediate and ca. 25 total for all levels.

Hey guys that is exactly what I was looking for!
RJ, Nice list saves me a lot of work. Henning thx for your suggestion. Kimiik thx for the link but I think it is not working anymore.
I need the list because I am organizing all my files and want everything to be complete. Then I want all the pdf's printed in one booklet :-)
I am DEnovating :-P

there have been two waves of cleansing. The first came with the switch to "V3" July 2007 and is not visible in the numbering scheme. The second came somewhat later and it left some holes in the system. Together this weeded out about 20 "old" Advanced lessons, 15-20 Intermediate lessons, 100 Newbie + Elementary lessons, "Word on the Street" and "The Saturday Show". Among the Newbie lessons was the first ever broadcasted CPod lesson...

Aha I see, I have lesson 1 to 1000 complete (I had still many old lessons stored) and I am only missing number 350 :-)
So, number 350 is a collectors item? *wink wink*

It is hard to know which is lesson 350, because I saved a lot of the old lessons using mnemonic names. :=( Personally, I'm hoping the advanced lessons from the old "zh" site will show up again somewhere, sometime. (speaking of collector's items)

I checked yesterday and came to the conclusion that that 0350 was a Newbie lesson. I might have it, but Newbie is the only level where I didn't bother to built up a matching to the old level-specific numbering so I am not certain which of the Axxx-lessons it is.

Maybe there is no number 350?! I checked THIS link and looked at the old lessons in nov 2006: between 349 Ordering Office Supplies and 351 Being Seated In A restaurant there is no lesson at all. It is a mystery!
Just saw Hennings comment too late: I have a lot of old newbie lessons maybe if someone knows the title I might have it already....

No, there's no #350. I've never understood why, but I remember compiling my own last way back - early 2007? - and there was no 350 at that time either.
Later on there was a Media lesson that was deleted due to... issues... That was #858.
There's actually a full list function available now?! About time! Now that I'm wrapping up final exam marking, perhaps I'll have a chance to get back to Chinese.
Mark, if you're serious about the old zh lessons, I probably have them on a backup DVD somewhere. But weren't most of them ported over when the two sites were re-combined? And as much as the OCD part of me likes complete collections, when you look at some of the purged lessons, you can see why they went.

Lesson C0350pb was part of the bitTorrent download of lessons 1 to 500. It's a 32 second clip of John P and a high-pitched male voice claiming to be Jenny with a cold.

The oldest Advanced lesson currently in the archive is dated July 2006. I remember some that came before that. Topics like: carving a name in the Great Wall, the 8 cuisines of China, Chinese family names. I saved some of them, but not all. The ones I have seem to be no longer available, and I have no way to know which ones I don't have.

Here is the list of the old Advanced-lessons - that came out before the zh-site was opened (with 日本恐怖片):
|A1||Love on The Great Wall|
|A2||How Chinese Socialize|
|A3||The Murder over a Steamed Bun|
|A5||Building Relationships – Part 1 (Compliments)|
|A6||The Hardships of Job-Hunting|
|A8||China’s Most Beautiful Mountains|
|A16||The Monkey King|
|A18||University Entrance Exams|

Thank you all for your help. I'll guess that I make my booklet without number 350 :-) I combined all the pdf's and still have over 4000 pages of lessons. That will be enough for now. I will aks a printing office to bind it in a nice book.
chanelle77June 16, 2009, 07:06 AM
Thank you Mark for you respons! Maybe another "first hour" poddie knows what lesson number 350 was? I have 1 to present complete now: except for that 1 lesson haha! The control freak in me wants to have everything complete :-)
