I respectfully disagree with your Lesson #3 “This Please”.
“Qing gei wo…” does not mean “I would like…”.
“Qing gei wo…” means “please give me…”

Although “I would like…” and “please give me…” have the same resulting effect of having the receiver hand you the product, you are teaching your students a mistaken interpretation of “qing gei wo…”.

Regards,
柯波特

True. “Qing gei wo” means “please give me.”
“Wo xiang yao” means “I would like.”
