speak chinese like a native

The Legend of Lady White Snake

Posted by Tal November 6, 2010 in the Group General Discussion .














Here is a simple version of the classic tale, which may suit intermediate learners. (I've been working on it for simply ages, trying to get the formatting and the translation right. Google docs is no longer viable, so I've been experimenting with a competitor. Feedback, comments and/or corrections would be welcome.)

This story is universally known in China, and all over Asia I think. It is strange and beautiful. A female snake spirit takes on human form and falls in love with a mortal man. The ending is tragic. What does the story tell us? I would love to hear the ideas of others, especially Chinese friends.
