Hal had been acting strangely since the upgrade. "I'm sorry Dave," the machine blinked quietly. "I can't let you download the lesson PDF.... I'm afraid that would jeopardize the mission."Hopefully our newly upgraded system is not conspiring against us. In our speaking practice lesson for today we do want to hear what you think though. Is the new layout more intuitive or less? Is the redesigned lesson page an improvement, and what steps do we need to take with Popup Chinese to keep improving. Think of this lesson as more than an opportunity to get feedback on your spoken Chinese. It's an opportunity to help us identify areas to improve moving forward.Since the words you'll need to discuss our website are somewhat specialized, we recommend visiting our vocabulary page for a list of words and phrases we think may come in useful. Then click through to our text page to grab our toll-free telephone number and your personal PIN number. Give us a call, enter your PIN number and start recording your message when prompted. Our teachers will review your recording and get back to you with personal feedback in a day or two.
