I’m curious.  If this is an intermediate lesson why is one of the hosts speaking all English?

I thought that was done only on basic lessons.  At intermediate level, shouldn’t both the native speaker and second language speaker be speaking discussing everything in Chinese?  

If the English were used to clarify and discuss the structure or word meaning of the Chinese it would make sense, but the way it was done with them discussing the story in two different langagues, but not discussing the language usage does not make pedagogical sense to me.

I am only now coming back to Chinese Pod after having cancelled my subscription previously due to their being no hosts at all for awhile.  

I look forward to exploring what you guys have been up to and hopefully finding upper intermediate and advanced lessons with little to no English, unless it is for clarification.

I created a Quizlet set of the vocabulary from this lesson The set can also be added to ANKI by searching for the same title as used in Quizlet.

Follow this link to try it out. Quizlet : C-Pod Upper-Inter: High Blood Pressure

Within Quizlet to review a difficult set I prefer the “LEARN” function set to “multiple choice” answers with “traditional characters.”

Give it a try and let me know what you think of my card format andthis method of vocabulary review.

The scene referred to was in “Ghost.” (第六感生死戀 Dì liù gǎn shēngsǐ liàn)

It’s east to get the Chinese title of that movie mixed up with that of another movie “The Sixth Sense.”(靈異第六感 Língyì dì liù gǎn).

It turns out the two movies have rather similar names in Chinese.

I believe this is the movie clip they were talking about in the lesson: Ghost: Pottery Scene
