Hello George,

I'm Mala, and I'm pleased to be your ChinesePod teacher. To kick-off your studies, your needs analysis has been scheduled at 21:30 pm(Beijing time) on Thursday 2010-07-08. This introductory phone call will last about 20 minutes (there's no need to prepare). Please contact us if you will not be available at this time.  

In the meantime, I'd like to introduce myself briefly:  

My Chinese name is 郑雪 (Zheng Xue).  I graduated from Shanghai University and my major is the teaching of Chinese as a Foreign Language. In my spare time, I like watching movies, hanging out with my friends, and travelling, etc.

Please note: Once we've completed your needs analysis, I will provide you with your monthly lesson plan. To access your lessons, simply log-in as normal and search for "assigned lessons" in the "My Class" section.    

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me or our customer support team (email: support@praxislanguage.com). We will always do our very best to help you.

Hello. I am looking forward to our first conversation on Thursday. My quick intro:

My name is George Madrid. I am a software engineer working in Cambridge, MA, USA for Google, Inc. We have many native Mandarin speakers in my office, and I also work closely with many engineers in Shanghai. Fortunately, their English is very good, so it has never been necessary for me to learn Mandarin, but that's no reason that I shouldn't. 

I also want to note that I found no way to respond to this message on my iPad. One of your web guys should look into this. 

Talk to you soon,
