Grammar

In lesson 6 I noticed the dialogue used bù (Bù, wǒ yào liǎng ge) but previous lessons used bú (Bú yào, xiè xie). Was this a mistake or is there a reason for this? I tried to google it but could not find anything.

Please consider this question. We learn very early how to say 'thank you' in Mandarin. Is there an equivalent for 'please?' What is considered proper etiquette when making a request of someone? Thank you.

Experiences with Mandarin

So I completed Fluenz mandarin Levels 1+2 and 3...........and it was an incredibly addicting journey, because of the sheer ease of which I was able to fly through each session, largely because of just how sophisticated the course is. And then, because I missed it so much I did it all over again. Yes, I did Fluenz Mandarin Levels 1+2 and 3 TWICE. Which begs the logical question: Will there ever be Fluenz Mandarin Levels 4 and 5? The sheer rocket-like speed at which Fluenz Mandarin brings us from zero to Intermediate Level fluency is stunning to say the least and almost DEMANDS the need for two more levels. Their other languages ALL have it. Anyone else out here feels the same?

Does anyone have any good Mandarin bands I could listen to? Preferably rock or metal?

I just wanted to post a comment about my recent trip to China. Although in Beijing finding someone who speaks English is not a chore, I spent over two weeks in western China where most of the people I encountered only spoke Mandarin. Although I was by most no means fluent, I was able to have rudimentary conversations, ask for a price (and even bargain!), and order food. Fortunately I had a Mandarin-speaking assistant with me so she did most of the talking, but I was able to get the gist of the conversation in many cases. With more practice and exposure I can be even better, but I just wanted to say how much I appreciated this software. Thanks!

Session by Session

There are a few flascards that appear to be incorrect on Session 30. Minute = Fēn or Fēnzhong yet, as luck has it, I always guess the wrong one. I was under the impression these where interchangeable. Is there an instance where one is preferred over the other?
