20 Homework and courses 作业和课程

Hi everybody, welcome back to another episode of 成长汉语, Growing up with Chinese.

Now seen as a lot of you’re still in school, and for those of you who want, life is one big school, isn’t it? Anyway, it seems appropriate to have one of our shows focus on school, as well as all the vocabulary that comes with this territory.

Now the last time we saw Mike and 小明, they had just arrived late to class. Last show, 兰兰 was deep in discussion with her classmates on the topic of pets. So how did their day end up? Did their bad luck streak*1 finally come to an end? Let’s go check it out.

*1:streak 続けざまに経験する

19 Talking about pets 谈宠物

Hi, 你们好. It’s great to see all of you for another episode of Growing up with Chinese 成长汉语. In this show, you all get the chance to learn simple but very useful Chinese through the adventures of Mike, 小明 and their friends.

Now have you all recovered from our discussion of 把 from last show? 你们是不是把它给忘了? Did you take it and forget it? If you did, don’t worry about it. We aren’t going to bring it up again today though, it’s blissfully*1 absent from today’s dialogue. In fact we thought it might be fun to go easy on*2 all of you this time.

Our topic is pets. I love animals. And apparently, so do 兰兰 and her classmates. So, let’s check it out the dialogue for today and I promise what we’re going to be covering will be very easy. Let’s check it out.

*1:blissfully ありがたいことに

*2:go easy on 優しくあたる

18 Apologizing 致歉

今回のSpotlightは盛りだくさんです。


Hello everyone. 欢迎收看成长汉语. Thanks for tuning into today’s Growing up with Chinese. We’ve got a great show lined up for you today.

First though I have a question. Take a minute to think of all the ways we apologize in English. There is a lot isn’t there. I’m sorry, my fault, I apologize, excuse me, forgive me, my bad, the list goes on and on which implies that we apologize a lot in English don’t we. Well in China there are a couple ways to communicate an apology. However there are nearly as many forms of I’m sorry as there are in English, interesting isn’t it. It’s not the Chinese speakers don’t feel remorse as much as English speakers, after all, we all are human beings.

Now I’ll leave it is food for thought for now because we need to get into today’s dialogue clip. Now unfortunately, 小明 has a lot of apologizing to do the day. Let’s check out just exactly what’s going on.

17 Transportation

今回も公式な中国語タイトルはありませんが、「交通」でしょうか。Mikeが学校に行くシーンがあるのは何気に初めてです。


大家好, it’s time for another episode of Growing up with Chinese. 欢迎收看今天的成长汉语. Thanks for joining us today.

Last time we talked about making phone calls in Chinese. Today we are going to be focusing on transportation.

Now in the United States along with many other countries, when kids live too far away from school, they have the options of taking a school bus. And most public schools in China do not offer this service. But that’s mostly because China has quite a developed public transportation system.

Take 北京 for example. There’s the subway, public buses, taxis there’re even bike lanes on most every road so that people can bike virtually anywhere.

So today, 小明 and Mike are making their way to school. Let’s see how that evolves.
