And I have a point to share...
 
Lately I have noticed in the Vocabulary section Chinese Pod including lesson-specific examples of what a measure word is for, which really helps for flashcards. So rather than just identifying a word as a "measure word," more detail is being included, such as "measure word for long, slender things," and sometimes more detail than that, such as in this particular lesson.
 
I find this additional detail really helps when reviewing vocabulary flashcards much later on.
 
Please keep this up!
 
Given the wide range of measure words, I've come to understand that it is really helpful to internalize measure words so as to be better able to decipher unfamiliar sentences, and to become increasingly literate in Chinese.
 
Also, as per the message further above, I thank all the Chinese Pod teams for their impressive work in producing engaging lessons,
