    Hi Melnyks,

    I am keen to learn mandarin both oval and reading. I just engage a tuitor
    to help and am keen to broader my learning experience in my own time.
    I try to listen to some of your audio, but cannot find the sample of a full
    transcript. My challenge is to learn the vocabulary, reading and practical
    conversation, I can follow the pronounciation / tones quite well.
    Could you please let me know:
    1. how do you charge. It is per subscription per period or by lesson? and
    how we make payment?
    2. how do we get started
    3. can I download the audio to my electronic dictionary, and print the full
    4. is there a different level of study? eg. beginner, advance and so on
    5. I just come to taiwan and plan to live here for at least 2 years, so do
    you have the transcript in traditional chinese?
    6. Do you provide support to your subscribers for example if we need
    specific help to pronounce certain words or find out how to use the words
    in a context. if so, how do we go about it?

    Dear Lily,

    Thank you for writing your email. I will try to answer all of your questions.

    That’s very good that you are working on it in your spare time, learning Mandarin Chinese requires a lot of listening and repetition ( and time :-))

    1. You can get access of all complete PDF transcripts by visiting transcripts page in your account.

    2. All you need is to start from the first lesson, make sure you are not falling too behind in terms of the vocabulary and you will make it. If there is something you need to ask, we are here to help.

    3.Yes and yes. If you are using iPod or iPhone, you can subscribe to all of the Mp3 lessons thru iTunes, its a really useful piece of software. If you are not iOS user but are using any other kind of electronic listening device with storage capabilities, you can download the Mp3s manually by right-clicking on the “download” button and then “saving as” on your desktop and then dragging the files into your device.

    4. Currently, all lessons are on beginner-intermediate level. The lessons start from the beginner’s level.

    5. Yes, of course, once you got passwords, you can access transcripts in traditional characters and print them at your convenience.

    6. All you need in this case, is post your question in the comment section under the specific lesson, and I will write my answer to your question, I will also email you the answer as well.

    Hope my answers were helpful.

    Good Luck!
