I was pointing out that there are many people, particularly as they get older, who have difficulty making out voices over background sounds, and that people who don't have that problem (typically younger) don't appreciate the issue. Those sounds should not be here when we are trying to make out new vocabulary. Just because I was using you as the example doesn't mean I was talking ABOUT you.

But its good to know you still have acute hearing at a ripe old age.

"It's an easy one to miss."

And an easier one to ignore.

I'm guessing you're young. You won't be saying the same 20 years from now.

Whenever a man steps up to point out a wrong, there is always another man to step in and fight for the old ways by implying that the first man is not a "real man" (with the added implication that we should all regard the speaker as a "real man").

I'm struggling to see a comparison between a podcast presenter who we never meet in person and a member of a cabin crew who serves us meals. Nor can I see why some stubble would shatter anyone's confidence ..... that would seem to say more about that person than it would say about Gwilym.

But for anyone who does choose to have an issue, the solution of course is to listen to the sound-only podcast.

Because of course the most important factor in our Chinese education is the physical presentation of the host.

Why does it even bear mentioning?

Could this please get addressed. There is no audio for all the sample sentences for 上.

Also, is there a list of these bridging lessons?

Now ...... can anyone recall a result from 2005 in the one-day game?

Other than World Cups, test cricket provides all the memories.
