 第十五课 逛上海世博会 Lesson Fifteen: Visiting the Shanghai Expo

CRI reporter: Dominic Swire

(In the Shanghai Expo Garden)

Dominic: Hello and welcome to Living Chinese. Today we’re coming to the 2010 Shanghai Expo, a showcase of culture and urban design from across the world.
“迎接2010年上海世博会,城市让生活更美好。”

Dominic: The Shanghai Expo marks the first time the event has taken place in a developing country. The theme of this Expo is “Better City - Better Life”.

Dominic: The problem with visiting exhibitions so big is selecting exactly what you want to see. The Shanghai Expo opens for six months, but I think we don’t have to take that time to see everything. Luckily, Zheng Zhi is here to help.

Dominic: 郑治,你觉得哪些场馆最值得去看?
Zheng Zhi: 我认为最有特色的场馆是中国馆、日本馆还有沙特馆。 
Dominic: 我们现在去看中国馆,怎么样?
Zheng Zhi: 好的,我们走吧。
Dominic: OK.

Dominic: Zheng Zhi, what’s the polite way in Chinese to ask someone to move out of the way?
Zheng Zhi: You can say this way, 劳驾,请过一下。
Dominic: 劳驾,请过一下。
Zheng Zhi: Yes, correct.
