I think it would be helpful to have a few "how [word] is not used" in the "grammar" section. 

For this lesson, The word shì is tough for me to decide when to/not to use and examples would definitely help.

BEST is a bit silly...he was good, but I have yet to find one I don't enjoy in some way or another.

On my first (and only) visit to Shànghǎi (also when I decided to learn the language) My sister told me to tell say "bùyào" to pushy sales people when I wanted them to leave me alone. 

With that, I've come to think of "yào" as the verb "to want".  When I read the dialog and the expansion sentences I realize I don't understand when to interpret it as "want" and when it means "will".  Any help on this would be appreciated.

No offense, but this was sort of a pointless episode...
