Dears, after a few months away from Chinesepod, I’m back and have just seen the news. So, Fiona and Constance are really gone? Really really bad news. That will play a major role in my decision when the time comes for renewal of my premium subscription. Anyway, hoping for really capable and energetic hosts as well.
As for suggestions, what I struggle with ChinesePod is the lack of a study plan, or study path. Like, you begin here, my dear newbie, and move on studying this, and after this, that, and then that, and so on. I obviously welcome lots and lots of new lessons as frequently as possible, but they should be inserted in a learning path as well. It’s like having someone guiding me in my learning journey.
Another suggestion is on how we are able to download the lessons for offline study. I’ve been working in quite challenging environments which hardly have internet access, so I always need to download the lessons before I travel. The download through iTunes is plain ridiculous. I am never able to download all published Newbie lessons, for example, because iTunes just does not download all of them for whatever reason. This has to have a solution… iTunes is a terrible piece of software, IMO.
Anyway, eager to know the new hosts. And whatever happened to Fiona and Constance, please bring them back.
Thanks and best of luck, we will be paying close attention to how it goes.
