I'd not ever seen the female version of the pronoun "you", (妳) ...It's common to write it this way?

First one could also be 终于, right?

Hi, good lesson!
One question: both pleco and google write the word 氾滥 as 泛滥. Is it correct?

ok, thanks, that it's what I always thought.

My confussion comes from the lesson "Square Dancing: Chinese Style(D2374)", where 要不然 is translated as "How about". Moreover, in the expansion section of the same lesson some examples are given with this translation.

It's stil not clear enough for me.

要 不 然 can also be translated as "How about..."?  In some lessons it's translated this way, but in this Qing Wen lesson only 要 不 is translated this way. Are both expressions (要 不 然 and 要 不) the same in all contexts? . Thanks

There's a mistake in the transcription: the word 童年 is written as 童 么.

very useful lesson for those who are working with children, by the way :)
