Beginner -- Turn the Page (Listener Feedback)

Postby kruseje » Tue Jul 29, 2008 4:45 pm

Although a beginner lesson, this was one of the more nuanced podcasts in terms of inculcating cultural awareness. Found your recounting of receiving "goods," "very goods," and "excellents" as school grades both amusing and helpful. Wasn't aware of the lesser tendency to proffer "thank yous" nor the varying degrees of toadying in the different words for "please." Finally, liked the description of the "yes sir" overtones of 7aa9'ir versus the likelihood that a superior would respond to a request with "God willing."
