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.

小西’s xiǎo xī Dad broke his leg on a trip. He stayed at home to recover. At the same time, his son had to be on business trip in Italy. 建国 jiànguó volunteered to take care of him while working during daytime. He took good charge of everything. From bedside help to cooking, to overnight assistance. 小西’s xiǎo xī family was very happy and grateful for 建国’s jiànguó help.

小西 xiǎo xī was very worried that her habitual abortion will upset 建国’s jiànguó family. In the country side of China, to be able to have children, especially male children are very important.  建国 jiànguó comforted her that he would love her regardless she could have child or not.

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.
