Chinese Pod is great
你好。I just wanted to say that Chinese Pod is the most enjoyable way I've found to learn Chinese yet. The banter keeps me entertained in the material far longer than any other method. And its very handy. Since I'm in school, I usually have 15 minute breaks between classes and driving to and from home. I wouldnt be able to read a textbook walking or driving, but I can certainly listen to podcasts. Its really a great system.
I think though that some improvements could be made in the tutorial of how to use chinese pod and how to set up the downloads to itunes. It took me a while to do that.
It would also be nice to have a function that recommends new lessons. I am afraid to jump out of order because I might not know some words yet. Having "recommended prerequisites" section on courses would let me know what lessons I should study or look over first. Just a thought.
Keep up the good work guys. 加油！
