In 'Hamlet' Shakespeare's character Polonius counsels his son to;

'Neither a borrower, nor a lender be, For loan oft loses both itself and friend'.

I was wondering if there is an equivalent sentiment expressed in Chinese literature, e.g an aphorism or proverb?

Nice one. I really could've done with this a few weeks ago in Beijing. Not just the language but the strategy. Correct me if I'm wrong poddies but I think the station exit's where labelled after letters of the alphabet and when you're on the phone trying to distinguish between B, C and D mistakes can be made. How do you pronounce alphabet letters in Chinese btw?

我 不 会 说 英 文。你 会 说 法 文 吗? For all your scamming deterrant needs. Actually as the phenomenom of 'scamming' does take place to an extent here, maybe a lesson on this would be in order. Pitched at newbie or elementary please.

对不起 is missing from the pop up dialogue. Audio is OK. Is it just me? Great job though guys. Would love a drill of key words before a recap of the main dialogue. I know you do it as an extra but it would be nice as an integral part of the main 10 minute lesson.
