I decided to start learning Chinese about 11 months ago. I’m doing it mostly for fun and personal satisfaction. I find the culture and language very interesting and would love to be able to take a trip some day. I would like to eventually be fluent, so I will keep on truckin’. Until the last few weeks, I have mostly concentrated on listening and speaking but now have the bug to start working on the characters and have started learning them.
I have noticed that you’re often quick to implement nice changes in functionality on your site and also that you seem to be methodically keeping a database of what words are used in what lessons so as to point out to the user where to go for earlier lessons. I’ve been quite busy lately, so mostly I’ve just been listening to your podcasts (both regular and review/premium) on my commute. It will be interesting to see how far you can take this progression. Will I someday be hearing you say, “Welcome to Lesson 987″?
It’s nice to see all of the improvements you keep making to the site and the course itself. I hope you’ll keep up the good work and I look forward to trying out some of the newer features.
