How about:

Have a nice trip! (旅途愉快)

Have a good time! (祝你玩得开心)

Have fun! (你们好好玩吧)

How about 愉快? Can we use it instead of 快乐?

Style in English is simply not the same as method. You can't do word by word translation really.

I wonder 就是说不知道。我很好奇is I am curious. You don't use it so much in spoken Chinese. Also you can say 我很想知道。

Most common though is 不知道你或者他或者等等怎么怎么样

For example my gf says 不知道你喜不喜欢。She wants to know the answer though. It's not only telling me that she doesn't know.

But then one day she said:

我很好奇有没有其他女孩子跟你说过她喜欢你。This means that she is really curious, it's not only slight wondering.

There's something wrong with the audio file of this lesson. I've been trying to come back to this lesson for several times, but can't open it.

Can you guys fix your links for recently changed 'Mark studied' buttons? If I use the button, the lessons don't get marked 'studied' in my library.

The biggest problem in Shanghainese (and other 南方的城市) housing actually is the lack of insulation. That's what makes 地暖 so expensive. No matter how much you heat it, it all goes out of the poor standard windows and non-insulated walls. In Northern Europe 地暖 is very popular and is relatively competitive with other types of heating just because of proper insulation. The same applies for cooling down the room in summer heat. If only there would be higher standards of building insulation, it would save huge amounts of energy.
