I find video lessons more effective compared with audio. Thank you very much!

Thank you Jenny, Catherine and Sarah for the show :)))

Yeah, this is very difficult for Chinese people, especially, children to explore something new. They don't seem to be able to organise their time for studying and having a rest, which is not healthy at all. They just study all the time from very early age. Probably, that's why many Chinese people wear glasses.

I'm looking forward to studying the coming lessons :))) I agree, we are nerds in a good sense of the word :)))

Very interesting lesson! Thank you very much!

I heard that the word 姑娘 (gu1niang, girl) is old-fashioned, and nobody uses it today. Is that true? This word comes from "Expansion", first sentence.

Thanks for the lesson! :)

In the "expansion" there is a good phrase 马上好 (bie2ji2 ma3shang4jiu4hao3). How often do Chinese people use 急??? I'm asking this question because I'm Russian and I live in London, so sometimes I can be lost in the cultural differences. In English "don't worry" is used in all sorts of situations. However, in Russian, if you say "don't worry" too much, it could be a bit offensive (the person can reply: "I'm not worried! Do I look worried?"). In Russian you use this phrase just in very special occasions.

So how often do you use 急? Do you have special cases for that? Or, is it used like in English?

Thank you.

I'm afraid in Supplementary vocabulary the word 袜子 (wa4zi), socks, the left element of the first character is wrong.

It should be 袜子  - one more stroke in the left element.

Very interesting lesson. And full of culture.  I didn't know that you have to ask about taking off your shoes in China. In Russia you ALWAYS take off your shoes, no matter whether it's your house or somebody else's.

Thanks to CPod I can see my level of Chinese going up rapidly.
