Qing Wen Related Exercises?

Hi, folks,

I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but I wonder if it might be possible to have Qing Wen related exercises somewhere down the line. The new lesson-linked exercises are absolutely fantastic, but I can also envisage that exercises linked to QW episodes that help explore and cement grammatical patterns, would be hugely useful to users, and (if technically possible from your side) would do a slightly different job from the exercises linked to individual lessons. The lesson-based exercises are more focused on listening and vocabulary, but exercises relating to QW episodes could explore more systematically the patterns of the language.

All the best,

I also agree! I think the Qing Wen episodes are fantastic at exposing a Poddie to the more grammatical side of the language but I think it'd be helpful to actually read and practice/write these newly learnt pieces of grammar. That's why I think it's great the more recent Qing Wen's have PDFs as before it was very difficult for a Newbie (such as myself) to pick up the sounds and tones, and relate them to written characters which I'd either rarely seen or not at all.

I'm Just gonna bump this post to the top too. It'd be interesting to see what the rest of the community think about Qing Wen exercises.
