Hi Vera (nihao!)

This looks okay.  But I'm wondering about the selection of 'casts that have a business/daily life focus.  Can you let me know the thinking by including some of the less obviously related 'casts such as the art class and mascots?

I've begun working on them.  So, no need to change now. I'm just wondering about the rationale.

Joe,nihao! Coz when we talked this Saturday, you told me maybe half half. So I chose some daily talk and culture talk. But if you don't like them, I will changed them at once.

No need to change. There is some good language and patterns that will be useful.

Dear All,


We are terribly sorry for the trouble. Thank you very much for your support. From Sept.29th to Oct.5th we will have one week off—National Day Holiday in Mainland. So we will not in the office during these days. We will extend your account and make up the lessons we miss. We hope we will get your forgiveness. 谢谢!

We will come back on Oct.6th. Look forward to talking to you soon!

Hi Vera,

ok.  after working on this (or not) for 1 month.  I'd like to request some changes.  It's been difficult to work up any enthusiasm for signing up for Art Class, etc.  So, I'd Like to work on the following dialogues.  Also, I think doing 3 was a little to aggressive to start.  So, I'd like to cut back to two.  Let me know what you think about it after you return from holiday.  Thanks, Joe

Dear Joe, That's fine. Sorry for letting you feel boring on some dialogue. :(

If you finish your list, could we start our test?
