Great lesson, pretty funny dialogue! I've been waiting for a lesson on this topic for a while, thanks for delivering!
I have also picked up one of the original Mandarin Companion books a few years back and it was great. Seeing this episode reminded me how good it was and now there are so many more books released, I can't wait to buy and read them all!
I like how you touched on the comparison between graded readers like Mandarin Companion vs something like children's books. I tried reading some children's books back in the day but found it difficult to stay motived with my reading when the stories were so simple and basic. I'm happy that there is more and more content coming out for those of us that want some interesting reading material outside of Chinesepod lessons.

For some reason I am unable to download this lesson using the Android app. I can download other lessons just fine, is this an issue with the app or the server?

Gwilym: "But you miss out on the best bit, which is the breakfast"
Fiona: "No, I think the best bit happens in the hotel"
haha, I love this, I actually burst out laughing when I first heard this! You guys should totally do an entire lesson or series on love hotels, I find the concept and culture behind it very interesting! It could also be a useful lesson for those listeners living and dating in China. :)

I thought that the previous lessons on STI's and getting a sexual health check-up were great. Perhaps a lesson on safe-sex and related vocabulary for contraceptives? This could be a tie in with the sexual health check-up lesson or something.

I totally agree, I love these lessons that cover less PC or polite topics. We all encounter these situations so it's nice to have to vocabulary to prepared to deal with it :)

OMG, the funny lesson image and clips inserted into the video were amazing! I love all the humor that is added for those who watch the lesson videos. Overall this has been an excellent lesson, and after driving in LA it made me wonder how I would say certain things in Chinese when I encounter these kinds of situations. :P
