Tiny Error in Lesson 1.1?

First off, I'm completely new to Mandarin, so it is entirely possible that this isn't an error at all. This is regarding lesson 1.1 For Lin's last sentence, the audio and pinyin text seem to agree with one another. However, the Chinese script reads "见到你很高兴。" Shouldn't it read "见到你我很高兴。"? Basically, it seems like the 我 is missing.

Hi there, welcome to the Rocket Chinese forum! Good spotting, however the word "wo" is optional. Just like in English there are some instances where you can omit words, for example I'm please to meet you or Pleased to meet you. I hope that clarifies it. :D

I haven't studied the chinese symbols at all yet and am strictly going by Pinyin for now. So, let me get this right. =) "Jiandao ni wo hen gaoxing" is in the text, but on the test, the correct answer is "Jiandao ni hen gaoxing"? So you can leave "I (wo)" out?

Yes, you __can__ leave the wo out.

What was your thought process in noticing that the character was missing? I'm kind of skipping the characters altogether since i haven't learned them at this point. Are you trying to learn them and that's how you realized the pinyin had an extra word compared to the characters? Am I just being lazy and should really be paying more attention to the chinese characters??
