Intermediate reading 4 我终于敢说中文了

waveChinese 21st March 2013

Your first Chinese words are probably less memorable than your first day at school or first kiss, but we all start somewhere. Where was your first time?

北京,星期一早上,我从酒店打车去客户公司。这是我第一次去见这个中国客户,所以有点紧张。我给了出租车司机一张纸,上面有我要去的地址。

一路上,我们俩都没有说话。可能司机以为我什么都不会说,而我实在不知道应该说什么。所以他安静地开车,我安静地想我的事。

其实我在网上已经上了10节中文课了,学习了一些简单的对话。但是,除了中文老师以外,我从来没有跟别的中国人说过中文,我不敢开口!

突然,前面的一辆车来了个急转弯,把司机跟我都吓了一大跳。“他-喝-啤酒!”,我大声说!

听到我傻傻的中文,司机笑了,我也笑了,看样子他挺喜欢我的英式幽默。后来我的老师告诉我,应该说“他喝啤酒了”。不过我觉得没关系,不管怎么样,那位出租车司机听懂了我的意思。这让我很有成就感,找到了说中文的自信!

Questions:

1)他去见谁?为什么有点紧张?

2)他和司机为什么都没有说话?

3)他学习中文多久了?

4)为什么司机和他都笑了?
