Uhmm! An interesting diaologue. I liked the little tips given out here and there  in the lesson. As a suggestion, how about some interviews with people like John and Greg. I'm sure we could learn a lot from their experience of learning Chinese.

Just one point about the grammar section, with reference to 了

It has this sentence 我上海三年
Is it ok to use 住了 ?
I thought in the recent Qing Wen on 了, we should use 以前. As in 我以前住在上海。
Have I misunderstood something?

Really interesting to read the history behind the characters.

Can we have more of the same please?

With the phrase 已经了 there are three 3rd tones in a row - 你.

Would I be right in saying that the pronunciation for the first two characters 给 changes to the second tone and 你 retains the third tone?

Thanks Bodawei for your comprehensive and clear answer. I agree about the search engine. I'm a big fan of Chinesepod but not its search engine.

How can I refer to an apartment block in Chinese?

I live in Block 8 on the 7th floor. How should I express this?
