speak chinese like a native

Heavenly stems

Posted by laorui March 9, 2008 in the Group General Discussion .

It is common in written Chinese to see the use of the 10 heavenly stems characters in place of A, B, C etc.  It might be useful for ChinesePod to use this method for their dialogues.  This would be more in keeping with a English to Chinese translation and, if nothing else, everyone would quickly pick up a few more characters.
