Hi I reach your site by mistake when i was searching bing for this wii issue, I must say your site is really helpful I also love the design, its amazing!. I dont have that much time to read all your post at the moment but I have bookmarked your site and also signed up for your RSS feeds. I will be back in a day or two. thanks for a great site.

Meaningless and silly mini test. You asked for air and I answered air and then you told me it was wrong. My answer should have been oxygen. If you cannot do any better than this I will stick with Chinesepod.

Dear Erica,
Thanks for your attention to our website. Regarding what you mentioned, we are a little confused. Our mini-test asked the characters for air, so the answer should be “空气.” And did you answer this? You mentioned “you told me it was wrong.” Who told you it is wrong? Could you please describe it in details so that we could help you?
Best wishes!
