Please consider dropping one repeat of the dialog (in each of the 3-repeats sections) and one repeat of the English translation.  The second-time English translation is annoying and pointless.  Instead, please add more vocabulary and increase the length of the dialog.  Otherwise people whose level is Elementary are forced to tackle Intermediate lessons, listen to them a dozen times, pay to a Chinese tutor to decifer what Jenny says in the Intermediate lessons etc.  Because the Elementary lessons simply do not deliver progress, no matter how fun they are.

Are they also going to fix the Elementary lessons to make them deliver more value? I believe strongly that a person taking an Elementary lesson should be assumed to have taken the 90 lessons of Pimsleur Mandarin. This is the precise definition of the Elementary level.
