My suggestion (as discussed in detail in NewPodMovement >>> General Discussion):
Make the example sentences available for download, most preferably in Anki-format.
Front: English Audio
Back: Chinese Audio + Hanzi + Pinyin
I have been doing it this way for a few weeks and I am already seeing very substantial results, especially in new words available for active application in daily use. For now, I record the English audio by myself, then add the downloaded Chinese audio and copy-paste the Hanzi and Pinyin.
This is extremely time-consuming, but worth it. If Chinesepod could provide set of audio flashcards for download and import into Anki with every lesson, that would be really, really awesome.
