Thank you for the suggestions. I wanted to suggest for the Intermediate and higher level lessons maybe put all the dialogue characters uninterrupted, then follow it with the pinyin and English further down the page.

A:  你好,阿姨,这里是人民公园吗?

B:  对啊!

A:  哦!人真多!今天有什么活动吗?

B:  我们都是帮子女来相亲的。他们工作忙,没时间交朋友。你看,这是我女儿。


A: nǐhǎo, āyí, zhèlǐ shì Rénmín gōngyuán ma?

B: duì a!

A: ò! rén zhēn duō! jīntiān yǒu shénme huódòng ma?

Thank you, great job. I didn't know May 1st was called 劳动节, but after you listed it I looked it up in the dictionary and there it was. Before I had heard people call it 五一.

最近福布斯杂志发表一篇关于马云文章,“China Inc. 的脸面”。这文章讲述马云和阿里巴巴最大的挫折,有一个大型骗子丑事。还有述说马云的升起。

Recently Forbes magazine ran an article about Jack Ma, "the face of China Inc.". The article talks about how he and Ali Baba dealt with his biggest setback, a large-scale scam, and his rise to the top.

Maybe someday ChinesePod can interview the real Jack Ma. :)

I liked it too and agree that in that busy intersection one doesn't expect to find a peaceful Buddhist temple. :)

Yes, a lot of people say it's not very authentic. The one day I went the monks led the faithful in a ceremony, there was chanting, etc. For someone who has never been to a Buddhist temple -like me- it's a very nice experience, and very convenient since it's so close to the subway station.

Hi srkopec, welcome to ChinesePod. I think people greet each other simply with 你好.

"Are you all right?" is 你没事吧 - Nǐ méi shì ba?你没事吧

The answer, hopefully, will be: 我没事 - Wo3 mei2 shi4.我没事
