I love these books! I didn't know they'd been made into TV shows.

It's strange getting so familiar with your voices and only just now seeing faces! This is a great video lesson, I agree with people above that the pop-up vocabulary is very helpful and finally i might be able to play a game of mahjong!

I'd also like to add that I still prefer the audio lessons though, especially as I use chinesepod mainly when travelling/on the move I wouldn't want to have to sit down every time I wanted to study a lesson.

Thanks for all your hard work.

This is in regarts to the 你是。。。 greeting. In english I have a habit of asking: Who's speaking? is there are similar way of saying that politely in chinese or is the above the best way to ask?

Ah, that must be it and makes so much more sense. I was confused why everyone was saying something was "water". Thank you!

Really interesting, thanks. What I've encountered on Facebook quite a  bit is people responding to pictures (usually of clothes or something) with 水....any idea what that means??

Very useful lesson, I'm moving to Taipei in a few months and will be taking my iPhone with me so would want to be able to use it. If I just call up a mobile operator and ask about various 包月 options is that sufficient for them to know what I am talking about?
