Has anybody put together a vocab list from this lesson that they would be willing to share?

I am still finding this sentence to be a bit confusing...一般来说税务局开发票发票承担的话房东同意。What is it that the employee is taking responsibility for?  Thanks!

Are there any differences between 故乡 (which Jenny uses in the discussion at the end) and 老家 as descriptions of where a person comes from?

On 上去 (shang4qu).  When waiting for an elevator, if the door opens and you are unsure as to whether it is going up or not, can you ask, 上去吗?  Or would 上吗? suffice?

What lessons can folks suggest where 被 is featured prominently?

I found this to be an interesting construction...我要的是威士忌加冰块儿. In that situation, I probably would have said, 我只要威士忌加冰块儿.

I have added PWP to my feed, but I would not have known that the show had come out had there not been that link on the right-side of the main CPod screen.  I've had this happen before when, for example, I missed out on the first few video lessons before catching up and adding them to my feed.  Is there any way to notify users (especially ones like myself who seem to need the extra notification!) when a new program is coming up and give them the option, ahead of time, of subscribing to it?  Just a little question/suggestion.
