Learn Chinese from Chinese TV episode - 新结婚时代新结婚时代 xīn jiéhūn shídài (New Era of Marriage)” is a Chinese TV episode based on the book of the same name by a famous women writer “王海鸰 wáng hǎi líng“. It talks about how big impact the difference between two marriage families could do to the marrying couple in today’s China. The difference is defined between a family from the country side and a family from the country side and a family from the big city.

To avoid going with 建国 jiànguó to his parent’s home, 小西 xiǎo xī brought all kinds of gifts for 建国 jiànguó to bring back to his family and relatives. However, 建国 jiànguó still insisted on going back together. 小西’s xiǎo xī parents also persuaded her to go to being a good daughter-in-law. 小西 xiǎo xī agreed reluctantly.

But 建国 jiànguó still managed to get tickets that were canceled by others. 小西 xiǎo xī had run out of luck but to go. 小航 xiǎo háng went to the supermarket that 简佳 jiǎn jiā always went, to his pleasure, he met 简佳 jiǎn jiā again. In the country side, 建国 jiànguó bossed 小西 xiǎo xī around like all country men did, 小西 xiǎo xī was very upset but decided to bear it down to save 建国’s jiànguó face.

OK now, I’ll zip it and let you to watch it on your own. Once you totally understand a part of conversation in the episode, please imitate the actor’s lines since the way they talk in this TV episode is very natural mandarin. Once you’re very familiar with the lines, they’ll come out of your mouth next time you speak Chinese.
