@Brendan: I thought there could be existing arrangements to prevent distribution. That's too bad! Anyway, I'll be watching the movie soon, though I doubt my abysmal command of Chinese will let me sense the missed nuances... But if I do, I'll be sure to come back with questions.

A show on movies! Yes! Fantastic work, guys.

Any chance to get Brendan's subtitles?

@gms_alpha2 It's not in the transcript, but it does sound like they're adding a 啊 sound at the end. It is, AFAIK, just a way to make the sentence sound better/softer. I think it's partly hinted at in this lesson:

(Which, by the way, is hilarous.)

Don't take my word for granted, though, I'm a total newbie at Chinese :)

David,

wonderful! Thanks for the heads-up. I've been playing around and almost everything works on the iPad, except for the Flash part of course - but that's easy to stream to iTunes in the background.

I seem to get a bug with the mouseover vocab, which happens in Chrome 16 and IE9 on my PC, and in Safari on the iPad: when I click on words to get the definition to stick (on the PC) or to appear (on the iPad), then I can't close the tooltip, I need to refresh the page. I hope you can reproduce this...

Ah! I didn't find any announcements on the new website launch, so I supposed this was still in the works :)

I'm just a registered user with a free account, so I guess I can't see the most substantial part of the website. Is there a demo lesson, free for all, to test the functionalities?

Thanks,

Giulia

@guillina,

Sure things. There's a sample lesson right here:

We're actually trying to be more open, so you might want to check out the placement test in the study center as well as look into some of the backend tools there to see if they can be useful to you.
