I've had this problem too. If you know the name of the lesson, you can type in its URL, with hyphens between the words.

For example, the lesson "Good Night" has the URL:

Its a bit hard in some of the Qingwens though because they often have Chinese characters as part of the URL.

This is a Newbie lesson - the beginner's level. Please provide Pinyin and English translation. The paragraph at the very bottom of this page says:

"Out of consideration for our Newbie and Elementary users, English translations should be provided with any Chinese (characters or pinyin) written in Newbie and Elementary lesson discussion posts."

It appears that the lesson search feature is not working.

Perhaps someone else could confirm that for me.

Before I read your post, I had not noticed that this person's name was offensive. Having looked at it again, perhaps you are correct, perhaps not. One thing that is certain is that in your post there is no confusion - the words leap right out at you even when scrolling quickly. What was your purpose in highlighting it in blue the way have?  Despite your intentions, it is your post that is offensive, and should be deleted by CPod.

In the 3rd last expansion sentence,

你不要走。(Nĭ búyào zŏu.) I don't want to leave.

the translation is incorrect.

In the 2nd expansion sentence, the mouseover Pinyin spells 身体 as shēntī. Shouldn't the 2nd syllable have the third tone?

In the Expansion sentence:

她小时候很丑,长大以后变漂亮了.  (Tā xiăo shíhou hĕn chŏu, zhăngdà yĭhòu biàn piàoliang.)  When she was small she was ugly. Once she grew up she became very pretty.

I thought 'when'  was  的时候  (de shíhou).

In what situations can the  的  de dropped like this?

Regarding the last expansion sentence, I have noticed that sometimes you write 出来 as chūlái, and other times as chūlai. This applies also to chūqù / chūqu,  qĭlái / qĭlai, and I think some others as well which I can't recall at the moment. Are there times when the last syllable is stressed, and times when it is not?  Or is it a case of you being a bit careless? Or does it not really matter? Or is it the Taiwan/mainland China thing?

Just looking for some insight here.

Should the second last expansion sentence end with a question mark? It appears to me to be a statement.
