" èrshíjiǔ Wú Mèngyǐng zhèyàng xíngróng zìjǐ shàngbān shí de xīnqíng 4年前,她进入北京的一家私企做财务工作。第一次面试时,就被老板告知,公司规定每周工作6天,所有部门周六都要在岗。如果不能接受,免谈。 Sì nián qián , tā jìnrù Běijīng de yījiāsīqǐzuò cáiwù gōngzuò .

Rúguǒ bù néng jiēshòu , miǎn tán . 虽然不合理,但当时不是名校毕业又没有足够财务经验的吴梦颖,还是接受了这个“霸王条款”。对于已经找了小半年工作的她来说,有份能养活自己的工作要比过周末来得更迫切。 Suīrán bù hélǐ , dàn dāngshí bù shì míngxiào bìyè yòu méiyǒu zúgòu cáiwù jīngyàn de Wú Mèngyǐng , hái shì jiēshòu le zhège " bàwáng tiáokuǎn " .

" 虽然每天都会闪现辞职的念头,但吴梦颖还没有一次真正提出过,甚至没有把对加班的不满表现出来,因为那可能意味着她会失去这份工作,她没有勇气对加班说不。 Suīrán měi tiān dōuhuì shǎn xiàn cízhí de niàntou , dàn Wú Mèngyǐng hái méiyǒu yī cì zhēnzhèng tíchū guò , shènzhì méiyǒu bǎ duì jiābān de bùmǎn biǎoxiàn chū lái , yīnwèi nà kěnéng yìwèizhe tā huì shīqù zhè fèn gōngzuò , tā méiyǒuyǒngqì duì jiābān shuō bù . “找一个同样收入又心仪的工作并不容易,裸辞可能就意味着失业,那种焦虑和不安比起加班更让人受不了。现在,双休日和工作我只能选一样。” " zhǎo yī ge tóngyàng shōurù yòu xīn yí de gōngzuò bìngbùróngyì , luǒ cí kě néng jiù yìwèizhe shīyè , nà zhǒng jiāolǜ hé bùān bǐqǐ jiābān gèng ràng rén shòubuliǎo .

With his dad not supporting him pursuing a career in music, what will Wang Leehom do ?   高中毕业时,王力宏寄到台湾一家唱片公司的录音带被看中。唱片公司给王力宏打电话,极力让他加盟,还承诺要给他出专辑。热血沸腾的王力宏向父母提出自己想进演艺圈发展,谁知道,家中就此爆发了超级大战。 gāozhōng bìyè shí , Wánglìhóng jìdào Táiwān yījiāchàngpiàn gōngsī de lùyīndài bèi kàn zhōng . chàngpiàn gōngsī gěi Wánglìhóng dǎ diànhuà , jílì ràng tā jiāméng , hái chéngnuò yào gěi tā chū zhuānjí .

" 家人如此强烈的反对让王力宏烦躁不安。晚上,王力宏把自己锁在房间里,胡乱地翻看电视,这时一档音乐节目吸引了他,电视里面正在放庾澄庆和林志炫的歌。王力宏被两个台湾歌手给震惊了,他觉得自己的喉咙在发痒,他不能失去这个机会。 Jiārén rúcǐ qiáng liè de fǎnduì ràng Wánglìhóng fánzàobùān .

With his dad not supporting him pursuing a career in music, what will Wang Leehom do ?
December 28, 2018
" I write songs based on what I observe in everyday life"____Leehom Wang.    1976年,王力宏出生在美国纽约一户富裕的华人家庭。他的哥哥比他大3岁,9年后,妈妈又给他添了一个弟弟,一家五口人幸福美满。像其他美国小孩一样,王力宏从9岁开始就靠打工挣零花钱。那时候,他以为纽约就是宇宙的中心,每天骑著单车去送报纸。饥肠辘辘地回到家时,吃着妈妈的甜馅饼则是他一天中最开心的事。 Yī jiǔ  qī liù nián , Wánglìhóng chūshēng zài Měiguó Niǔyuē yī hù fùyù de huárén jiātíng . Tā dìgē gē bǐ tā dà sān suì , jiǔ nián hòu , māma yòu gěi tā tiānle yī ge dìdi , yījiā wǔ kǒu rén xìngfú měimǎn .

Jī cháng lù lù dì huídào jiā shí , chīzhe māma de tián xiànbǐng zé shì tā yītiānzhōng zuì kāixīn de shì . 王力宏6岁开始学小提琴,8岁学钢琴。别的孩子都愿意选择看电视和玩游戏,王力宏却可以连续练琴3个小时。教琴的老师常对妈妈夸他有天赋,有毅力。一次,王力宏在院子里面练小提琴,天突然下起了雨,雨溅到了琴上,王力宏却闭著眼睛浑然不知。看着儿子如痴如醉地沉浸在音乐中,妈妈被深深的打动了。 Wánglìhóng liù suì kāishǐ xué xiǎotíqín , bā suì xué gāngqín . Biéde háizi dōu yuànyì xuǎnzé kàn diànshì hé wán yóuxì , Wánglìhóng què kěyǐ liánxù liàn qín sān ge xiǎoshí . Jiāo qín de lǎoshī cháng duì māma kuā tā yǒutiānfù , yǒu yìlì . Yī cì , Wánglìhóng zài yuànzi lǐmiàn liàn xiǎotíqín , tiān tūrán xià qǐle yǔ , yǔ jiān dàole qín shàng , Wánglìhóng què bìzhǔ yǎnjīng hún rán bùzhī . Kàn zhe érzi rú chī rú zuì dì chénjìn zài yīnyuè zhōng , māma bèi shēn shēn de dǎdòng le . 一天,妈妈去学校接9岁的小力宏,教他小提琴的老师对他妈妈说,你的儿子对音乐的感觉和表现力很强,他应该放弃其他的活动,每天保证四个小时的练琴时间,坚持下去,他有可能成为一位优秀的提琴家。 yītiān, māma qù xuéxiào jiē jiǔ Xiǎo Lìhóng , jiāo tā xiǎotíqín de lǎoshī duì tāmā mā shuō , nǐ de érzi duì yīnyuè de gǎnjué hé biǎoxiàn lì hěn qiáng , tā yīnggāi fàngqì qítā de huódòng , měi tiān bǎozhèng sì ge xiǎoshí de liàn qín shíjiān , jiānchí xiàqù , tā yǒu kě néngchéngwéi yī wèi yōuxiù de tí qín jiā . 妈妈点点头,没有回答老师。她想起从前学提琴的朋友,从小不敢打网球,不敢滑雪,童年不能参加体育活动,只是因为害怕手会受伤-------妈妈觉得孩子快乐比做音乐神童要好。可是才9岁的王力宏对妈妈说:“妈妈,我最喜欢的还是音乐,我还是想把更多时间放在音乐上!”妈妈大吃一惊,她觉得这句话好像是从儿子心底说出来的。既然儿子天生就与音乐有不解之缘,做妈妈的更应该尊重儿子的选择。 Māma diǎndiǎntóu , méiyǒu huídá lǎoshī .

Paid for by Patrons 十六岁那年,马友友在一个音乐夏令营中结识了长他两岁的美国女孩吉儿。经过七年的爱情长跑,在他二十三岁的那年结婚。聊起婚姻,马友友摸着下巴说:「老了,胡子这么长了!我和吉儿现在已不必说话,看一眼就知道对方在想什么了!」他说,现在与吉儿通电话,彼此只需「叹气」就好了。   吉儿曾在德国念书,也一度在哈佛任教,先后生下两个孩子后,就在家相夫教子、不再工作。马友友说:「你知道弄两个孩子有多累!我又常不在家,吉儿要当母亲又要当父亲,真难为她了!」 让不让孩子学音乐?「我教他们开车,教他们吃饭。但不教音乐,如果他们有意愿就学,没有就算了,音乐只是生活的一部分!」 马友友非常强调生活。他喜欢朋友,喜欢不同的生活方式,喜欢尝试新鲜。他有许多不是音乐家的朋友,「因为从他们那儿可以知道许多音乐之外的事。」马友友对生活是很有感受的。「年纪愈大,角色愈多,责任也就愈重。以前我只是父母亲的孩子,后来我成为人家的丈夫、孩子的爸爸,又是音乐家。我要扮演的角色愈多,责任自然也愈重,但是我不排斥这些,因为这是人生过程中一定要面对的。而且我也在不同的角色中体会不同的乐趣,这就是生活。」 Subscribe to our newsletter: https://goo.gl/forms/iGzDQVYToF7Rivo42 Help us reach 99 Patreons https://www.patreon.com/learningchinesethroughstories Are you already a listener?

Paid for by Patrons 《马友友》2 马友友说,世界有这么多人种,这么多不同的语言,今天他可以以中文和中国人交谈。了解中国人的生活思想;可以以法文和法国人谈话,知道法国的历史背景,这其中就蕴藏著无限的乐趣。而且,他认为音乐和历史、哲学、文学、人类学一样,由不同的角度看有不同的解释:不同的人演奏有不同的风格;这是音乐与其他学术相通之处,也是音乐迷人之处。在哈佛念书时,马友友也接触了许多中国古籍,像红楼梦、西游记、三国演义等,都是他喜欢的。问他最喜欢「红楼梦」里那个人物?他笑嘻嘻的说「贾宝玉」。为什么?「因为有很多女朋友!」说罢他自己就大笑起来。 mǎyǒuyǒu shuō shìjiè yǒu zhèmeduō rénzhǒng zhèmeduō bùtóng de yǔyán jīntiān tā kěyǐ yǐzhōng wén hè zhōngguórén jiāotán liǎojiě zhōngguórén de shēnghuó sīxiǎng kěyǐ yǐfǎ wén hè fǎguórén tánhuà zhīdào fǎguó de lìshǐbèijǐng zhè qízhōng jiù yùncáng zhe wúxiàn de lèqù érqiě tā rènwéi yīnyuè hè lìshǐ zhéxué wénxué rénlèixué yíyàng yóu bùtóng de jiǎodù kàn yǒu bùtóng de jiěshì bùtóng de rén yǎn zòu yǒu bùtóng de fēnggé zhèshì yīnyuè yǔ qítā xuéshù xiāngtōng zhī chù yě shì yīnyuè mírén zhī chù zài hāfó niànshū shí mǎyǒuyǒu yě jiēchù le xǔduō zhōngguó gǔjí xiàng hónglóumèng xīyóujì sānguóyǎnyì děng dōu shì tā xǐhuan de wèn tā zuì xǐhuan hónglóumèng lǐ nàge rénwù tā xiàoxīxī de shuō jiǎbǎoyù wèishénme yīnwèi yǒu hěnduō nǚpéngyou shuō bà tāzìjǐ jiù dàxiào qǐlai 马友友认为自己来自中国家庭是很「幸运」的。父亲严格的生活教育,使他在远离中国社会这么久的日子,还是能说得一口流利的国语。他说:「说中文的机会太少了!和爸爸妈妈说,和姐姐说,教一点点给儿子和女儿,其他就没有机会了。」因此他说,多来台北是好的,至少可以使国语说得「溜」一些。小时候,马博士规定儿女在家一定得说中文,吃饭时要叫得出菜的名字才能动筷子;写信要写中文才回信;因此马友友虽然没有长时间生活在中国人的土地,国语却说得相当不错,甚至极不愿意说话中夹杂英文。这样的背景使他在国际乐坛中能独享有儒雅、清新的中国气质,再加上天分和努力,成为少有的、不参加任何世界音乐大赛就扬名世界乐坛的音乐家。 mǎyǒuyǒu rènwéi zìjǐ láizì zhōngguó jiātíng shì hěn xìngyùn de fùqīn yángé de shēnghuó jiàoyù shǐ tā zài yuǎnlí zhōngguó shèhuì zhème jiǔ de rìzi háishi néng shuō dé yìkǒu liúlì de guóyǔ tā shuō shuō zhōngwén de jīhuì tài shǎo le hè bàba māma shuō hè jiějie shuō jiāo yìdiǎndiǎn gěi érzi hè nǚér qítā jiù méiyǒu jīhuì le yīncǐ tā shuō duōlái táiběi shì hǎo de zhìshǎo kěyǐshǐ guóyǔ shuō dé liū yìxiē xiǎoshíhou mǎ bóshì guīdìng érnǚ zàijiā yídìng dé shuō zhōngwén chīfàn shí yào jiào déchū cài de míngzi cáinéng dòng kuàizi xiěxìn yào xiě zhōngwén cái huíxìn yīncǐ mǎyǒuyǒu suīrán méiyǒu chángshí jiān shēnghuó zài zhōngguórén de tǔdì guóyǔ quèshuō dé xiāngdāng búcuò shèn zhìjí bú yuànyì shuōhuà zhōng jiāzá yīngwén zhèyàng de bèijǐng shǐ tā zài guójì yuètán zhōngnéng dú xiǎngyǒu rúyǎ qīngxīn de zhōngguó qì zhì zài jiāshàng tiānfèn hè nǔlì chéngwéi shǎoyǒu de bù cānjiā rènhé shìjiè yīnyuè dàsài jiù yángmíng shìjiè yuètán de yīnyuèjiā 。 ———选自 https://sites.google.com/a/mail.clps.ntpc.edu.tw/9960330/ma-you-you-de-gu-shi 图片选自 By Ralph Daily - https://www.flickr.com/photos/ralphandjenny/12196206846/, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=32334434 Subscribe to our newsletter: https://goo.gl/forms/iGzDQVYToF7Rivo42 Support us through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/learningchinesethroughstories 汉字,拼音,词性,意思 以;yǐ;verb;to use 思想;sī xiǎng;noun; thought, thinking, idea, ideology 蕴藏;yùn cáng;verb;to contain 无限;wú xiàn ;adj;unlimited 乐趣;lèqù;noun;joy 哲学;zhé xué;noun;philosophy 文学;wén xué;noun;literature 人类学;rén lèi xué;noun;anthropology 风格;fēng gé ;noun;style 相通之处;xiāng tōng zhī chù;phrase;similarities 接触;jiē chù;verb;to access, in touch with 古籍;gǔ jí;noun;ancient text, antique books 红楼梦;hóng lóu mèng;A Dream of Red Mansions (first completed edition 1791) by Cao Xueqin, one of the four great novels 西游记;xī yóu jì;Journey to the West, Ming dynasty novel by Wu Cheng'en , one of the Four Classic Novels of Chinese literature; also called Pilgrimage to the West or Monkey 三国演义;sān guó yǎn yì; Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong , one of the Four Classic Novels of Chinese literature; a fictional account of the Three Kingdoms at the break-up of the Han around 200 AD 笑嘻嘻;xiào xī xī;verb;grinning; smiling broadly 罢;bà;verb;to finish 严格;yángé ;adj;strict 流利;liú lì;adjective;fluent 溜;liū;adj;fluent 规定;guī dìng;verb;to set a rule 动筷子;dòng kuài zi;phrase ;start the meal 甚至;shèn zhì;adv;even 夹杂;jiā zá;verb;to mix 独;dú;adv;alone 享;xiǎng;verb;to enjoy 儒雅;rú yǎ;adj;scholarly 清新;qīng xīn;adj;refreshing 气质;qì zhì;noun;personality traits 扬名;yáng míng;verb;to become famous Subscribe to our newsletter: https://goo.gl/forms/iGzDQVYToF7Rivo42 Help us reach 99 Patreons https://www.patreon.com/learningchinesethroughstories Are you already a listener?
