Regarding the amount of time studying Chinese every week. Like I said, I spend 5-6 hours per week studying Chinese. This is mostly to study from the text book "Masterworks Chinese Companion" by Qin-Hong Anderson.
My time using ChinesePod is considerably less. Perhaps 1-2 hours per week, including listening to the podcasts.
My goals are fairly straight forward. I wish to be fluent and literate in Chinese. Areas where I need improvement are vocabulary and listening comprehension. I use ChinesePod and other podcasts for the listening part of my studies.
It was nice speaking with you today. Talk to you next week.
