Dear ChinesePod, For ease to us listeners would it be possible to put the text as a download on this site? I've gone to the China Daily website and tried to copy paste the text into a WORD document to attach to the PDF vocab sheet but the WORD I have won't let me insert the Chinese characters. *cry* I'm not asking for a pinyin version or even a translation, just something to ease reading the text while it is being red in the podcast. Thank you!

question: where can I post questions I'd like to have answered by Qingwen?
My question is: how do I use 如此? I really don't understand what it means or how it works.

thanks pearltowerpete and bodawei, I started a discussion in the community section called "Getting MA in Chinese". Can't wait to hear more. Thank you :)

I want to study Chinese, but I don't know how to find a decent MA program, how did you go about studying Chinese? I just passed my 2 year Chinaversary but have moved back west and want to continue my Chinese, which is why I am asking :)

Just for the sake of this discussion board and to add my own question, I am going to answer your last comment to the best of my knowledge.
Personally I'd think the two sentences with 就 and 已经 are not interchangeable only because - now this is what I understood- time phrases come before 就 and not after.
As far as I understood only 才 can switch positions to before and after the time phrase and thereupon carry opposite meanings. Is this right?
So for example you can say:
but cannot say 现在就十一点半， 快吃早饭。
