This practice is best to be taken after Lesson 19 to 24.

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.

Liqun:” Zhangye, did you go to watch the movie yesterday?”
Zhangye:”I did. It was really good. A movie like that, once you started watching, you couldn’t stop.”
Liyun:”No kidding? Although that genre is not my cup of tea, I want to give it a try since you recommended.”
Zhangye:” Go ahead, Liyun, you won’t regret. I’ve watched enough trash these two years. Finally I find a decent one to watch.”
Liyun:”I totally agree, there have been so much trash churned out lately. I finally got the chance to watch a movie that I had been waiting for so long last month, but it was very disappointing. The director modified the plot a lot to cater the low taste and hoped for success in box office. In the end, the box office earnings was not good either. I really hope I don’t get disappointed this time.”
Zhangye:” Liyun, you know what, as much as I love the movie, my boy friend showed no interest in it. He had the nerve to doze off in the theater! Therefore, people are different. I believe you’ll like it. But you’ll never know for sure.”
