There are two very similar examples in the flash cards: 1) You can eat breakfast here at 9:30 and 2) You can eat breakfast here everyday at 9:30 I am trying to follow the same sentence structure and sure enough I am always getting it wrong. In the first example "You can eat breakfast here at 9:30" it is laid out like: Time+Subject+location+action Jiu dian ban, ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan but in the 2nd example: "You can eat breakfast here everyday at 9:30" the EVERYDAY part is first. My real question is, is it wrong to say: Jiu dian ban mei tian ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan instead of Mei tian jiu dian ban, ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan if so, why?

In the first example "You can eat breakfast here at 9:30" it is laid out like:

Jiu dian ban, ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan

but in the 2nd example: "You can eat breakfast here everyday at 9:30" the EVERYDAY part is first.

My real question is, is it wrong to say:
Jiu dian ban mei tian ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan

instead of
Mei tian jiu dian ban, ni keyi zai zheli chi zaofan

if so, why?

Flash cards from lesson 31 : Q: "We have arrived" A: Women dao le but the program says this is incorrect. The program answer is just: Dao le. I'm assuming this is because "We" is implied, is it a rule?

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?

flashcards to translate "I speak a little" is translated to "I speak a little" English to English. Sloppy Fluenz, come on! Remove this stuff.

I just picked Session 10... but really any Flashcard session that has English English what? English language? English person? Flashcards are not clear. Same goes for "Chinese" Are the flashcards asking me: Chinese person? as in Zhongguo ren Chinese language? as in hanyu I know and understand it's just flash cards, but the devil is in the details. More sloppiness from the creators of Fluenz mandarin. Really starting to get disappointed in what I purchased. It's like you guys never went through a QA phase in your development. One last comment: I don't know how to put the accents in my posts. I can pull them in from word or something, but it would be nice to have a keyboard in the language that's selected.

In the dialog for session 13, a question used is "That one, how much is it?". The response is "We don't have that one." Is there something about "that one" that I am missing? Is she pointing at an empty dust jacket? A computer screen? Over all, the sessions are well designed and well executed. Thanks

I'm totally confused about what I'm supposed to do during the conversation workouts. It says it's recording but then what do I do? An example would be helpful. Thanks!

In the respond to a question part, the audio questions are using words we have not learned. This happened the last session as well, but this time I wrote them down. San ben shu. Liang zhi bi. Ta shi laoban. I skipped to the next workout at that point as there was no reason to guess at things we have not done.
