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.

Another Valentine’s day came, 小航 xiǎo háng sent red rose to 简佳 jiǎn jiā. His sister 小西 xiǎo xī saw it. She told 简佳 jiǎn jiā she and her brother did not match. 简佳 jiǎn jiā felt sad. 小航 xiǎo háng ensured her that age gap was not a problem at all. 建国 jiànguó tried to talk his wife out of her brother’s love affair, she didn’t take it. She then had a talk with his brother trying to help his brother realize he and 简佳 jiǎn jiā were not likely to maintain a long term relationship. 小航 xiǎo háng argued with her using her own example: the day 小西 xiǎo xī and 建国 jiànguó came together, nobody seemed to think they were able to maintain a long term relationship into marriage. 小西 xiǎo xī had no choice but disclosing his brother’s new love affair to her parents. Her parents did not think their son should date 简佳 jiǎn jiā since they believed 简佳 jiǎn jiā was a material girl. 小航 xiǎo háng told 简佳 jiǎn jiā he’ll talk to his parent and let them understand the true 简佳 jiǎn jiā is a good girl and they are both serious on their relationship. 简佳 jiǎn jiā was touched.

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.
