We taught college English in China for 6 years and also found the Christmas performances at the churches meaningful and very popular. Also, our students felt sorry for us, being so far from family at Christmastime, and many came to visit on the 25th and 26th, bringing cards, good wishes, and twice, a Christmas tree.

When I checked out the vocabulary practice, about half the spoken words didn't match the written ones. Did anyone find this?

I am a newcomer and am really enjoying learning at my own pace with Chinese pod. However, I've struck one frustration. In the listening exercise section, I never get anything right. I check back on the spelling and tones and they match the vocab list but still...What's the problem here?
