Lesson Transcript

Anthony: Hi I am Anthony.
Gayle: 大家好,我是Gayle。
Anthony: And Gayle, I have a question for you. In the village, who is in charge?
Gayle: Like nobody.
Anthony: And do you need a license to drive a car?
Gayle: 我们不需要。
Anthony: And are there any policemen?
Gayle: 没有。
Anthony: Okay. So that means that there must be a lot of crime.
Gayle: 没有。 because all the young guys have left to cities, the old guys 他们太慢了。
Anthony: Okay so this village is right with old people but it does have a very historical tree in the ______ (0:00:58)
Gayle: Actually this is love story. Women from heaven fall in love with the pleasant guy.
Anthony: So the story goes that you want to write your name down on this red ribbon along with the person that you want to marry and it’s supposed to give you good luck and you know if things work out, you will marry the person that you want to.
Gayle: 没错。
Anthony: And I had the sneaking suspicion that I was the only foreigner in this village. So we decided to ask a local what he thought.
Gayle: [*] How strange you are!
Anthony: Yeah so apparently I don’t look like a foreigner.
Gayle: 你一看就知道是个外国人了。
Anthony: All right, so in the village, there is not a lot of things to do. One thing you can do to pass the time is
Gayle: 嗯,出去钓鱼。
Anthony: Okay. So this village is basically made up of people that live on this river, that depend on this river for the livelihood.
Gayle: 嗯,这里所有的老人和女人他们都会做这样的工作。
Anthony: And I feel that this boat ride was rather cheap. How much was it?
Gayle: 呃,30块。
Anthony: Okay and so 30 quay, I can imagine that a family in the village does not need that much money to live off of.
Gayle: 没错,如果一个家庭生活一天,只需要10块钱。
Anthony: Ten quays, that’s pretty cheap. So Gayle, you like the village and don’t you have plans to go move back there?
Gayle: I will go back after retirement to stay the last 10 years in my life there.
Anthony: Great. Well I will come and visit you and you can visit chineseclass101.com and sign up for your free lifetime subscription. I am Anthony.
