Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 7

Posted by Grace Feng on April 7, 2013

JLC Chinese Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 7This practice is best to be taken after Lesson 7 to 12.

To go to previous practice, click here: Reading, Listening and Speaking practice 6

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.

[ translation ]

Zhou Yang:”Lili, when you were four years old, we spent an vacation here, do you still remember?

Lili:”I do remember a little, we were having lunch in this park.”

Li Yun:”Let’s go swimming this afternoon, we went swimming too last time, do you remember?”

Lili:”I do remember. Daddy had a fall at the swimming Pool. Will you fall again this time?”

Zhou Yang:”Lili, you don’t remember good things about Daddy, you only remember embarrassing things about Daddy. Oh yeah, you said that you wanted to watch show when you were sitting in the car yesterday, let’s go watch it after swimming!”

Lili:”Super! What kind of show they have today?”

Zhou Yang :”The kind that a person stands on the stage and pops out things from a hat. Or the kind of show that cut a person into pieces.”

Lili:”Dad, that’s called magic show! I love it the best. Can we find a front seat tonight?”

Zhou Yang:”Of course! ”
