just to say that Chinesepod is the best help I could find in Internet to learn chinese. I mean, right now I am learning on my own (I just spent three months at a chinese school, after that I made a lot of chinese friends and right now, I could say that I am learning naturally...) and Chinesepod is helping me a lot. Qing wen is quite funny and interesting.
well, hope to go to China one day,
hasta luego! (I am peruvian...native spanish speaker)
