But ... it seems they have abandoned the Media lessons.

There hasn't been a new one in two months. And when you click on Library, 'Media' no longer appears as a separate option (You have to go looking for them.)

This occurs in almost EVERY lesson that includes this word. It has been happening for a couple of years now, and every time I point it out CPod fixes only THAT lesson, and doesn't fix the problem globally.

There are a number of other words for which this happens.

I would expect Chinese Pod to use words that are understood by ALL Chinese (or at least the vast majority). Fiona .... is that the case with 'yi' ?

In the first lesson or two, I did have to make a small effort to pick up what Gwilym was saying. But that's all it takes - a short period of training your ears. I seem to recall that it also took me a lesson or two to understand Ken. And for the first couple of lessons with John, I found it hard to focus due to his constant use of ums and ahs - I don't even notice that any more.

I'm also struggling to understand what "Do you even lift" would mean. In what scenario would you ask something like that?

If MDBG did have this moban in their dictionary, it is not there now.

Perhaps you should apologise for at least one of your countless incorrect statements, and the related attacks on CPOD.

"Whom should I trust in the future?"

If you think 听 is the correct character there, then clearly not yourself.

You sound too sober for this time of night ... I insist you start drinking.

So you are not interested in learning all the subtleties of the language.

That means the problem is with you, not the hosts.

Who exactly are you referring to when you say 'our' ?
