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.

小航 xiǎo háng asked 小西 xiǎo xī to persuade their parent to change their attitude towards his new relationship with 简佳 jiǎn jiā. 小西 xiǎo xī declined. 建国 jiànguó told 小航 xiǎo háng marriage was not  just between the man and the woman, it involved both families. It should be taken seriously. 小航’s xiǎo háng parent also told him that marriage could not be based on love only, they should look farther into the period after marriage to foresee any potential issues. 小航’s xiǎo háng didn’t agree, his point was people should not stop chasing their own happiness just because there might be issues in the future. 建国’s jiànguó Dad wrote a letter to 建国 jiànguó, asked him to find a job for his elder brother in the country side. He’d like to send him over to Beijing to work. 建国 jiànguó didn’t have choice but ask his wife to help.

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.
