John: Hi, this is an intermediate lesson on chinesepod. I'm John

Dilu: 大家好欢迎收听中文博客我是Dilu

John: So, today we have a lesson about shopping but fortunately it is the shopping that is most tolerable for men, right?

Dilu: 对,今天在我们的办公室里面有两个女孩子在讨论要给她们的老公买生日礼物

John: Right, so it's shopping for the man, for his birthday. So it's two girls in an office, right?

Dilu: 没错,她们应该是同事这两个女孩儿的老公都要过生日了但是她们的想法有一些不一样

John: Alright, now let's take a look at the beginning of the dialogue, one of the girls is saying, uh, she doesn't know what to give her husband, right?

Dilu: 嗯,她说我在想送什么给他好

John: So I'm thinking 送什么给他好。So give him what is good, right? This 好 comes on the end.

Dilu: 嗯,那这句话也可以说成我在想应该送什么给他好

John: Right, so what should I give him, right?

Dilu: 嗯,是的

John: So the difference here is that 应该 can have this feeling of rules or obligations

Dilu: 嗯,没错

John: Possibly

Dilu: 是的

John: Whereas 好, what?

Dilu: 那就是说有一些想法但是which one's better

John: That's when we use 好

Dilu: 对

John: OK, which one would he like, right?

Dilu: 嗯,那她的同事就说:男人嘛,领带啊,皮带啊,钱包啊,都可以

John: Alright, we've got a couple of things going on here. Now, first of all in the very beginning of this sentence she said 男人 and then what?

Dilu: 嘛,男人嘛

John: OK, so this 男人嘛,this 嘛 what is that?

Dilu: 啊这个有点像是you know men

John: You know how men are

Dilu: 对

John: They're just men

Dilu: 就是要讨论,啊,这个男人的特点

John: OK, so it's kind of like leading off this sentence with "well, you know men" and then her understanding of men is...what kind of presents are good?

Dilu: 领带啊,皮带啊,钱包啊,都可以
