It may sound very trivial, but I really don’t like the A and B for dialogues. It just makes things unnecessarily confusing.
Whenever the teacher asks questions based on the dialogues, such as whether it’s A or B who wants to go to the restaurant etc. I’m sure to get it wrong. A & B belong to the world of Maths!
It’s for equations. It’s hard enough to keep track of what the Hanzi is saying, I can’t link it to a letter.
Why can’t we have Michelle and Yu? Even better, cartoon heads AND their names. Real names. I’ve never seen a language text book that had irrelevant symbols instead of people. Starting all the way from my childhood’s English textbooks. “John and Betty go to the funfair”, not A & B eat an ice cream. I’ve never seen an A eat an ice cream or take a train.
Please change the dialogues and make them between people. Thank you!
