Please confirm that in Lesson 1 Vocabulary section "xiawu" is erronously translated as "morning" instead "afternoon".
Also, shangwu" is translated as "aftenoon" not "morning".

Andy, 
Thanks for the suggestions. I checked the vocabulary section, and I found that both translations are correct. Let me know if you see anything different.

Hello Andy,
In Chinese, “xiawu” is “afternoon”.

Dear Helen,
But in the vocabulary section "xiawu" is translated as "morning"! At least what I can see.

Dear Helen,
Xie xie nin! My mistake - I should have told you in the beginning that the problem was in the "Lesson Dialoque PDF".
Sincerely, Andy

ba dian sanke ,must means 
8  clock and 3 minutes! but she strikes her clock's hand on nine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Helen Zhang (Chinese Teacher) in reply to 478
Hi 478,
"Bā diǎn sān kè" means 08:45. 
1 kè equals to a quarter or 15 minutes. So "sān kè" means 3 quarters or 45 minutes.

Hi Kanza,
Nice to hear from you~
Kanza is “坎扎 (kǎn zā)” in Chinese according to transliteration.

why are we calling a dude "xiao Wang"?  isn't a dude called "xiansheng"?
February 16, 2012 Reply
Helen Zhang (Chinese Teacher) in reply to pinyinLVR
Hi pinyinLVR,
Thank you for your good question.
In Chinese, we can call a young man surnamed "Wáng" as "xiǎo Wáng." And "xiānsheng" is more formal, which means sir or Mr..

Hi
There is a problem in loading the end of this lesson (after minute 11-12)...

Hi Sergey,

Thank you for alerting us to potential problems.

I checked out this video and from my system, I was able to watch the whole video. It seems that it works well from our side. My first suggestion would be to try to download it again sometimes there can be internet transmission problems beyond our control. 

To assist us in solving this issue for you, could you let me know if the problem is that you can’t load the whole video or your system indicates that it is loaded but still you can’t watch through the whole video after loading.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

I can't load the whole video or sometimes the loading takes a few hours . This specific video is not the only one that is problematic, and I have this problem with many of the videos in your site,

Hi Sergey,
I checked several videos on my side and it seems they work well. The Internet connection may be the cause of the problem. Can you try at another internet connection point? Are you on WIFI? 

We are sorry for the problems you are having. We will explore this matter more with our technical staff. It may be something in the connection of the internet between our two counties but we are searching for problems within our own system. 

By the way, may I know where you are located?

sergey53 in reply to Helen Zhang (Chinese Teacher)
My location is Israel.
the connection isn't WIFI...
September 27, 2013 Reply
Helen Zhang (Chinese Teacher) in reply to sergey53
Okay. And thank you for providing more information. Our technical staff is dealing with this issue.
There may be some issue with your Internet connection, it might be necessary to check and see the ISP speed. Have you tried large video files from other sources? Is it fast?

We are still exploring how to test if it is the Israel-America connection problem. I hope we can solve this and provide our best service to you.

Yes, mostly there are no problems with the videos.

Thank you for effort .
