Obsession with mobile games 沉迷游戏──不能自拔 Media

MisterXia 谢谢! 我还找到了一个, 挺好用的: https://www.thechairmansbao.com/hsk-check/ 分析一下一个纽约时报的文章: HSK6 含有118词, HSK5含有170词 还分析我现在读的小说的一段(2万字左右): HSK6含有260词, HSK5含有384词   既然对于HSK5和HSK6的词汇很多, 要求比较高,还加上HSK6打扮的词汇是书面的,我认为Chinesepod的这些很短的正文没有很大的作用。 最好多看报纸, 小说等等。 这片课文含有HSK6的7个词。 ...

Jack Ma’s retirement 功成身退──接任马云:创造者张勇和他所改变的阿里巴巴 Media

ElshaYiu SongAnYang你好! 这一句话是马云在公开信中对张勇的评价。 这个文化传承,是阿里巴巴内部的文化传承,意思是张勇要秉承阿里的理念并发扬光大。担当的意思,是接受并负起责任。“传承上的担当”,整体意思就是张勇负起把阿里发扬光大的责任。 作为公开信,这些话是比较抽象的、好听的。 圣诞快乐!

66 Enjoyable Characters with Joy #1 Newbie

ElijahW brentulus, I think there's value in both. Learning the radicals is definitely essential, but crazy comparisons like this are more memorable. Are you familiar with the Outlier Dictionary? They're working away at producing etymologically-sound explanations of c...

南北差异 Advanced

ElijahW ChinesePod高级的词汇一直很有用!我在听一本恐怖灵异小说,男主角拿到了新的武器时,是这样说的: “最主要的是,这把剑所散出的阳气简直是以前那把无法比拟的,如果用身高来形容的话。那简直就是一个一米四一个两米二一样。 “虽然我知道浓缩的都是精华,但是此时我手里拎着这一把铜钱剑,确实心情无比激动。不知道要说什么好了,原来文叔说要给我的惊喜就是这个啊!”

Can you help me find...? Elementary

ElijahW Wow, you have a good ear! Yes, you heard correctly, and the distinction between "c" and "ch" is a regional thing. You'll find that regional variations in pronunciation were rare on ChinesePod in lessons produced before this year. During 2018, ChinesePod did a...

Workout Frequency at the Gym Elementary
