Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 20

Posted by Grace Feng on August 7, 2015

Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 20This practice is best to be taken after Lesson 25 to 30.

To go to previous practice, click here.

Please study the new words in the table before each scene. There will be four four scenes in four practice for this phase of study. 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 dialogue at least once on your own without the audio. Then turn on the audio and read again while listening. You can always pause or rewind the audio by clicking or sliding your mouse on the player’s progressing bar. 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 dialogue 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.

小朋友甲:"红山公园算什么?那么近,谁没去过?我打搬到这开始就经常去那玩。"
Kid A:”Hong Shan Park is nothing comparing to Disney. It’s right next door, who haven’t been there anyways? I’ve been playing there quite often since I moved here.”

Kid A:” It has different locations all over the world. I’ve just been to the US one, it was so much fun! I’ve been to the Hong Kong one too. It’s a bit smaller but was full of fun too.”

xiǎopéngyǒu yǐ:" nǐ de bàba māma zhēn hǎo, dài nǐ qù nàme yuǎn de dìfang wán。 wǒ de bàba māma zǒngshì hěn máng, cóngméi dài wǒ qù yuǎn de dìfang wán guò。"
小朋友乙:"你的爸爸妈妈真好,带你去那么远的地方玩。我的爸爸妈妈总是很忙,从没带我去远的地方玩过。"

小朋友乙:"真的?那太好了!可是,他们会同意吗?"

小朋友甲:"我求他们的事他们从来不说不的,放心吧。"
