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.
