I am pretty sure she is saying 趕緊(gan3jin3) as in "quickly, or without wasting time" . "那我們趕緊來聽聽今天的對話” translation: now lets quickly listen to todays dialogue.

I was wondering the same thing so I asked my Taiwanese friend, she said this 

"I think there is no big difference,

maybe 大陸人 say 曉得 more often than 台灣人,

or 曉得 sounds a little little little bit polite and formal "

hopefully that helps. Works for me.

My guess is, the same reason why you see the character 福 upside down often . Because the character 倒 which means upside down, is a homonym with 到 which means to arrive or bring. So by flipping 福 , or 春 in this case is essentially saying to bring joy, life or youthfulness.

Skritter s been going good for me. It's definitely helped a lot so far, I'm glad we got it! My reading and writing has certainly improved. But there's still more work to be done! 

The forum is good for a community chat type thing, it would be better if people contributed more interesting things, but seems to be mostly used for troubleshooting or basic question and answer. 

Im not sure what aim is? I mostly just use line and wechat.
