I noticed a website error I thought you would want to correct. The Lesson Audio Review for Lesson 7 works perfectly on the Watch Lesson 7 page. However, in the DAY 2 Outline page, the Link for "Practice with Lesson 7 audio review" points to Lesson 8 my mistake - not Lesson 7.

I am enjoying your lessons. it was fun, i am having a hard time to pronounce the rong yi, sounds like zhe,or ji. i keep trying... it was fun though...

Glad that you are enjoying the lessons. Sorry to hear that you are having a hard time to pronounce rong yi. It's not quite like zhe. I can see the similarity before "yi" and "ji". You may check out our video-based pinyin chart for demonstration. Hope that helps. Happy studies.

Actually, your teaching style is fantastic! I've learned for a couple of years, but reviewing the tones (which I was going to skip, but I"m glad I didn't) gave me a good way to think about the 2nd and 4th tones (often, those are the ones that trip me up the most) :). And, the lessons are right on with the study guide. Anyone who thinks they can learn Mandarin Chinese without making it a daily task isn't ready to learn it! Thanks for your great lessons!!

Your learning techniques and methods are simply awesome. I have devoted a year to studying Mandarin through basic materials acquired online and by speaking daily with native friends who reside in China. While I am an I.T. Security professional, Mandarin is a hobby I constantly enjoy and there is always room for improvement. After I saw a few of your lessons on youtube, I figured these courses were exactly what myself (and mostly my wife who doesn't have as much time) needed to master our passion

My dream is to pass this language on to my 2 year old son (who is already learning Mandarin), and our expecting child. My wife and I are just so highly impressed I had to give you some props. I am also a disabled veteran, and Mandarin is my favorite hobby, not just a tool to support my profession on information security. Subbed for a year. We will be learning with you for a long time.

I seem to be getting the hang of tones, thanks to the English equivalence used.

nothing to do with this lesson,but not sure completely when I should use mei you and bu shi

Méi yǒu" means "have not" and "bú shì" means "is not." So, you use "méi yǒu" when you want to say "don't have something" or "haven't done something." You use "bú shì" when you want to say "am/is/are/were not." Check out Chinese Grammar Lessons 4 and 5 for details on the different ways to use "bù" and "méi.
