Hey guys I really loved this lesson! The dialogue was fun to follow and John and Jenny explained things beautifully! A real winner. I just wish some of the comments here were on that par.
I hear "bust my hump" quite often here in NY.

Thanks for the explanations Pete and Changye. Looks like the safe route is to just always use 裡. Hey, anything to make this language a bit easier helps ;)

Hey all. I'm curious about the use of 裡面 in the dialouge instead of 裏面. Is this a mistake, or are both understood as "inside". If it is mistake, is it a common and "overlooked" one usually?

At long last! I've slowly been working my way back through Chinesepod time to finish all the Elementary lessons and today ends number 235! Thank you Ken and Jenny for the wonderful ride! I couldn't think of a more entertaining topic to finish it off. It's with a heavy heart that I click the unsubscribe button today, but I'm looking forward to new horizons with John and Jenny on the Intermediate path! 謝謝你們!

Whew... I actually read all the comments before listening and was expecting something terrible. After listening I thought this episode was just fine tho, definitely good for new learners or anyone who is just curious on the cultural differences. I dunno... maybe we're all just a little tired of the Winter? Come on Spring! Come lighten the mood!

AWESOME! Thanks for the traditional characters support guys. I was worrying that the firefox plugin might break one day, but now no more! It was a useful plug in tho, and kind of opened my eyes to how much better firefox performs with some sites tho ;)

Nice job on the song Johns! That one is very popular... in fact my favorite singer David Tao also did a version of it here you may like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEBhJ257V8g
Singing songs is a great way to keep learning a language fresh and interesting I think.
