An Easy Reading Passage for Intermediates
I find it very satisfying to read and understand authentic written Chinese, so I thought I'd point out a short, easy article I read yesterday. I read it in 读者 (a good source for not overly difficult magazine reading) but I see that it is online as well:
I did look up a number of words, which I'll copy and paste here:
pay a visit
various, all, these
even if; even though
would rather; better
however; yet; but
how (wonderful, etc)
what (a great idea, etc)
however (difficult it may be, etc)
to sell (off)
(adj) matches ones wishes
in the dead of the night
a 2 hour period in the night
In the second to last paragraph I'm still a little confused by "那头" and "那一刻", however.
