About this blog

Each week I will read a <2 min passage and try to get it as accurate and clean as possible.  I'm going to post my progress here to help myself keep track of progress.

朗读1 - 微笑


朗读

My first entry.  Still some notable issues with 笑 sounding too "sh"-y, as well as other issues that are hard for me to correct.  Will track progress and see if it improves over time.

微笑是对生活的一种态度,跟贫富、地位、处境没有必然的联系。一个富翁可能整天烦恼忧愁,而一个穷人却可能心情舒畅。只有心里有阳光的人,才能感受到现实的阳光,如果连自己都苦着脸,那生活如何美好?生活始终是一面镜子,当我们哭泣时,生活在哭泣;当我们微笑时,生活也在微笑。微笑是对他人的尊重,同时也是对生活的尊重。微笑是有“回报”的,人际关系就像物理学上所说的力的平衡,你怎样对别人,别人就会怎样对你,你对别人的微笑越多,别人对你的微笑也会越多。微笑是朋友间最好的语言,一个自然流露的微笑,胜过千言万语,无论是初次见面,还是相识已久,微笑都能拉近人与人之间的距离,令彼此倍感温暖。

朗读2 - 幽默


朗读

This one was interesting, has a few chengyu in it.  The word still making me the least happy is "全场" - the pronunciation still feels and sounds unnatural.  Other sounds that aren't great yet include 生 (the ah sound) and 声 (making sure i don't drift towards sh sounds).  Finally, I struggle to audibly detect the difference between jin and jing sounds (for example, 张 and 困), which of course makes it difficult to pronounce the differences clearly :D

Transcript:

在一些正式场合,我们有时会遇到一些令人尴尬的情形,这时候如果我们能用几句幽默的话来自我解嘲,就能让这种紧张、尴尬的气氛在轻松愉快的笑声中得到缓解,从而使自己从困境中走出来。 
一位著名的钢琴演奏家去一个大城市表演。演出那天,当他走上舞台时,才发现来的观众还不到全场的一半儿。见此情景,他非常失望,但是他很快调整了情绪,恢复了自信。

他走到舞台的中央,对观众说:“这个城市的人一定都很有钱,因为我看到你们每个人都买了两个座位的票。”音乐厅里顿时响起一片笑声。观众立刻对这位钢琴演奏家产生了好感,开始聚精会神地欣赏他美妙的钢琴演奏。正是幽默改变了钢琴演奏家的处境,使他摆脱了难堪。

朗读3 - 读书是一件快乐的事情


朗读

My parents came to visit (first time seeing them since the whole pandemic started!), so took a big of a break, but back at it.

 

I think this one overall went OK.  Nothing stands out to me as particularly problematic, but can always improve cadence + pronunciation.

读书是一件快乐的事情。对于爱读书的人来说,一旦读上就让人欲罢不能,中途根本无法放下,想让人读到天涯海角。有人说:“人生最深最平和的快乐,就是静观天地与人生,慢慢品味出它的和谐与美。”静下心来,翻开书本,那些沉积的墨香一点点溢满空间,那些尘封的快乐一点点打开。读书真的很快乐!
德国文学家歌德曾经说过:“读一本好书,就是和一位高尚的人谈话。”是的,读好书,就像结交了良师益友,使人受益匪浅;读好书,就像沐浴在温暖的春风里,使人心旷神怡;读好书,就像找到了快乐之源,使人领悟到快乐的真谛!
书,是人类进步的阶梯;书,是打开智慧大门的钥匙;书,是我们每一个人生活中不可缺少的一部分。
