Chinese JLC Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 13This practice is best to be taken after Lesson 19 to 24.

To go to previous practice, click here: Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 12

Please study the new words in the table before each scene first and then move on to the article. The whole article is devided into four scenes. You don’t need to study all four scenes at once. Take one at a time if you will.

You’re recommended to read the article for at least once all on your own without the audio. Then turn on the audio and read again. You can always pause or rewind the audio by clicking or sliding your mouse on the player’s progressing bar while you’re learning with the recording. Once you’ve understood all the content and recognized all the sentence patterns we used in the article, take your time to repeat with the recording until you can fluently read out loud through the whole article on your own.

PS: To listen to the pronunciation of the new words in the new word table, please click on  the pinyin for each character in the word. Please try to figure out the pronunciation through the pinyin first all by yourself. Don’t worry that you can’t get it right. You can progress much faster if you don’t rely on help and always try yourself first.

Zhou Yang and Li Yun were celebrating anniversary in a restaurants…

 

< Scene 1 >

zhōu yáng” dìyīcì jiàndào nǐ de shíhou, nǐ zài cǎo dìshang kào zhe shù zuò zhe, dài zhe ěrjī tīng zhe yīnyuè。。。”

周杨”第一次见到你的时候,你在草地上靠着树坐着,戴着耳机听着音乐。。。”

 

lǐ yún” nàshí wǒ zài nǐ yǎn lǐ shì zěnyàng de ne?”

李云”那时我在你眼里是怎样的呢?”

 

zhōu yáng” jǐnguǎn kànqǐlái yǒu yīdiǎn shǎ, háishi yǐnqǐ le wǒ de zhùyì。”

周杨”尽管看起来有一点傻,还是引起了我的注意。”

 

lǐ yún” shénme?! juéde wǒ shǎ, hái yào wǒ zuò nǐ de nǚpéngyou?”

李云”什么?!觉得我傻,还要我做你的女朋友?”

 

zhōu yáng” zhège nǐ jiù bùdǒng le。 zài shǎ de nǚren, yīdàn jiāo dào yī gè cōngming de nányǒu, jiù huì biànde cōngming qilai。”

周杨”这个你就不懂了。再傻的女人,一旦交到一个聪明的男友,就会变得聪明起来。”

 

lǐ yún” o, shì zhèyàng ā! nà nǐ zěnme zhīdào wǒ dāngshí zài tīng yīnyuè?”

李云”哦,是这样啊!那你怎么知道我当时在听音乐?”

 

zhōu yáng” nǐ dài zhe ěrjī, bùshì zài tīng yīnyuè, tīng shénme?”

周杨”你戴着耳机, 不是在听音乐, 听什么?”

 

lǐ yún” qíshí, wǒ nàshí tīng de zhēn de bùshì yīnyuè. wǒ tīng de shì xiǎoshuō. nǐ zài wǒ pángbiān zǒu lái zǒuqù de shíhou, ěrjī lǐ shì zhèyàng niàn de:’ zhǎo nánpéngyou, dìyī gè bùnéng zhǎo de, jiùshì zì rènwéi bǐ nǐ cōngming de rén.’”

李云”其实, 我那时听的真的不是音乐. 我听的是小说. 你在我旁边走来走去的时候, 耳机里是这样念的:’找男朋友, 第一个不能找的, 就是自认为比你聪明的人.’”

[ translation ]

Zhou Yang:”The first time I saw you, you were sitting on the grass leaning against the tree, listening to the music with your ear phones on.”

Li Yun :”What kind of impression I left you at that moment? ”

Zhou Yang :”Although you looked a bit silly, you still attracted my attention.”

Li Yun:”Huh?! You thought I was dumb and you still asked me to be your girlfriend?”

Zhou Yang :”This is something you don’t understand. However silly a woman is, once she had a smart boyfriend, she would become smart too.”

Li Yun :”Uh, that is so. Then how did you know I was listening to music?”

Zhou Yang :”You were wearing your ear phones, if it’s not music, what could it be?”

Li Yun :”Actually I was not listening to music, I was listening to a novel. While you were walking around me, the voice from my ear plugs says:’As for boyfriend, the first type you should avoid with all cost is the one who thinks he is smarter than you.'”
