Grammar

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.

I am really struggling and confused as to when to use "you dianr" and "yidianr". I know they all mean sort of "a little". But are they interchangeable or do they have to be used in specific situations. This doesn't seem to be explained properly in both Mandarin 1+2 and 3.

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?
