Lesson Transcript

大家好,我是崔晨。这节课向大家介绍的是春节,是中国最重要的节日。每年阴历的最后一晚叫作除夕或大年三十。阴历的新年第一天叫作正月初一。正月初一开始到正月十五的元宵节,每一天都有不一样的讲究和过法,下面让我们来学习一下吧!
你知道在春節里最忌諱的事情是甚麼嗎 ?
我會在這個視頻的結尾告訴大家答案哦!
在除夕夜到来之前有很多事情要布置妥当。首当其冲的就是“扫房”这项家庭活动。中国人相信新的一年要有新气象,所以要把全家上上下下、里里外外全都打扫干净,把过去一年的坏运气都扫掉。等房间清扫完毕,人们会把春联贴在门上、窗户上,一片红火,非常喜庆。
在除夕夜中国人普遍都会打开电视观看一场长达5个小时的节目,俗称春晚。春晚不但有歌舞、魔术表演,还有相声、小品等独具中国特色的节目。据统计,刚刚过蛇年春晚,平均收视率高达31%,将近一半的中国人收看了这个节目。如此高的收视率,让明星们都挤破头想在这个舞台上争取到演出机会。
小孩子最盼望的就是得到压岁钱了。压岁钱也叫作红包,因为长辈一般会把人民币放在红色的信封里,作为礼物送出。随着中国人收入水平的提高,小孩子的红包也越来越厚,少则几千,多则上万。但也不用太羡慕他们,大部分情况下,这些红包很快会被家长收走,用于家庭支出了。
不过,对于年轻人来说,春节也是充满压力的节日。在饭桌上经常被长辈们询问诸如“有对象了吗?” “在哪家公司上班?” “一年能挣多少?”——这类有些令人头疼的问题。
现在我來告訴你們前面問題的答案
你知道在春節里最忌諱的事情是甚麼嗎 ?
春节的时候不可以说任何不吉利的话。比如筷子掉到地上不可以说“啊,掉了。”——人们迷信也许新一年的好运气也随之“掉了”。
这节课你觉得怎么样?你有学到很多有趣的东西吗?
在你的国家,也有在特定节日不许说一些话的禁忌吗?

Laura,

Thanks. I know I'm being lazy: I can just click back and forth n my computer scrren.

On the other hand your way of doing it, with a little microphone on every sentence, is convenient, handsome, and pleasant to use.

Cheers,

-dlj.

Somewhere on the website I have seen the "2. Review Materials ~ All" selection give me line by line read backs. To the left there was a microphone-like button which played just one sentence at a a time.

Now I can't find anything like that. The Section 2 Review is exactly te same as the Section one reading, just a solid block of text. Yes, I can stop it and start it and "rewind," but the division that I had seen before sure was nice.

What happened? Am I selecting the wrong options? Or have you not installed this sentence-by-sentence review in this part of the courses?

What's with the sound quality? There are these little electronic noises every now and then. I thought my speakers were dieing.
