Thanks for this lesson, it’s so helpful. I hope you post lessons about how to read Chinese characters. I know how to read Mandarin Chinese, but reading Chinese characters is a real obstacle for me while learning Chinese.

Good explanations.  You obviously care that the student understands.

Very instructive, but sometimes going too fast. (Everything has to be repeated at least 3 times in good teaching, I suppose. E.g. I couldn't pick up the word with the second tone and its meaning.) The written characters also differ quite a lot from the standard printed ones. This makes it very interesting for me, because I'm a little bit used to the printed signs, but isn't it more important to learn the printed characters than the written characters, because you see and use these less often? Wouldn't it be useful to say at the beginning what the lesson is going to bring and to summarize everything at the end? (What a lot of critical comment - but I really enjoyed the lesson!)
