In this lesson, Qingwen takes on everything... or least least all the ways Chinese has to talk about it. Learn the difference between the words 全部 (quánbù), 所有 (suǒyǒu), 一切 (yíqiè), 整 (zhěng) and 完全 (wánquán).
Graham Mulligan's insight:

I started following this website informally, just dropping by and listening to the free content. Eventually I tried a subscription. It worked for a while and I felt I was making progress, but I eventually levelled off and needed something different. So I started traditional classes at a local college. They worked, but also levelled off after reaching a certain point. I decided to return to ChinesePod, just to see what additional effect it would have on my learning. I am also continuing with the college classes.

Graham Mulligan's insight:

Learning Mandarin will eventually involve learning to read characters. Learning to read characters is really enhanced by learning to write them. I am using this site to enhance my learning because it can link directly to the word bank I develop on ChinesePod, and I can develop my own lists from the College classes that I am taking.
