Hi riad,
I'm sorry I've been a bit slow to reply but I've had some computer troubles.

Thanks for adding my lessons to your site. I'll be adding more after I get back from Taiwan in about a month and a half.

It's a great program you have developed, and it has become at the core of my Chinese language studies.

I have corrected a mistake in this lesson. I had family listed as jia1 when it should have been jia1 ren2.
