Great lesson! Thanks! (oops! way too many 感叹号 ！)
Now there are other types of brackets such as:
Are these just variations for for 书名号 《 》, or do these have special usage?
Do you know what this ‖ is?
I had fun with 标点号.

Long ago looking words up in the dictionary took up a couple hours every night. We all got pretty fast at it. We even memorized the numbers of the radicals in the index (#75 wood, or was it water? oops)
Now how about one on phonetics?

Thank you, thank you for this story.
I teach beginning Chinese and try to tell stories to students as much as I can. Just working on dialogue can get tedious. I think stories really liven things up and they're just great for language learning because of all the repetition. More stories, please!
Chinesepod is great.
