Posted by Grace Feng on April 11, 2012

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.

建国’s jiànguó Dad brought some gifts from country side to 建国 jiànguó and 小西 xiǎo xī to express his care for 小西’s xiǎo xī pregnancy. He’s hoping they could have a son to carry the family name. His elder son had two girls and was not allowed to have more children without penalty. (Chinese family policy only allow one child per family in the city and two children per family in the country side in order to control the population growth. ) 小西 xiǎo xī pressed 建国’s jiànguó to tell his Dad about the miscarriage. 小西 xiǎo xī couldn’t stand 建国’s jiànguó Dad’s living habbits, went back to her parent’s home. 建国 jiànguó knew he would break his father’s heart but he had to tell him the truth about the miscarriage. 建国’s Dad didn’t take the bad news well. He put the blame on 小西 xiǎo xī and her Mom. He went directly to 小西’s xiǎo xī Mom’s hospital to start an argument. 小西’s xiǎo xī Mom was too busy with her patients, didn’t have time to talk to him. He was very update and told his son that 小西’s xiǎo xī family didn’t respect them.

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.
