Characters - The New Co-Worker Pre Intermediate

JJZhiMu With the last 4 videos I feel that ChinesePod is not only back but better than it has been in the past four years.  I personally was never the biggest fan of the last team.  I appears that quality of learning is back to the days of Jenny & John, ...

Likes and Dislikes - Hobbies [ATWTI 19] Newbie

Stuart55 I'm really enjoying the whole atwti series, especially the additional comments from Fiona and Constance to the use of some the words/phrases, that you probably wouldn't get anywhere else. Well done ladies.
