Hi drbk2006,

                   This is very unfortunate as there must have been some problem in the payment process. Our system showed you tried many times to pay for your Guided subscription, the final time you succeeded.

Vera sent you a 'Welcome to Guided' email on July 2nd.

If it was originally your intention to subscribe to Guided status, would you like us to assign you a teacher and give it a try? We could have a ChinesePod teacher conduct a 'Needs Analysis' with you next week - if you are happy then you could have 1 month of classes and see how you go. If you are unhappy, then we can convert your 1 month Guided subscription to Premium or Basic.

Due to our location in Shanghai, there may be a significant time difference between us, but we are happy to schedule your initial assessment at any time between 04:00 and 18:00 (Beijing time). Please advise me of your location and of times which would suit you for your Needs Analysis.

Please let me know what you decide, thank you for your understanding.

Hello manager.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Of course i intended to get Guided program, and i am happy now.

Would you give me some more day of Guided Subscription period for my unconsciousness time.

 I would be OK, if you are permit more days of Guided Subscription status.

I didnt realized your July 2nds Email, may be i had deleted them unconsciously.

Good bye manager.

@drbk2006 Of course. You will have 1 month of guided subscription starting from your first lesson - I will adjust your account to do this. :-) We would certainly not charge you when you have not had a class.

Please give me 3 time/day of the week choices for your class and I will do our best to arrange this when I get back to the office on Monday:

eg:    Tuesday: 1700-1800 

(we would arrange the class sometime during the hour you chose)

Choice 1:

Choice 2:

Choice 3:
