John: You're listening to Chinesepod. This is an Intermediate lesson. I'm John.
John: We have a disgusting lesson for you today.
Dilu: 哎哟，又是一个disgusting lesson
John: Yeah, we're not really joking but, uh, some of this language is pretty useful
John: OK, so it's a guy who meets a girl and he has some not so pleasant things to say about her, right?
John: Alright, so let's find out exactly what it is that's unpleasant about her
John: OK, so when the guy comes back from his date, um, his friend asks him about it, right?
John: Yeah, so this is a question that I think takes some time to get used to when you're talking about what someone looks like. We use this word 长，right?
John: OK, so 长得怎么样 means what do they look like
John: And the answer in this case is...
John: So, doesn't look too good
John: So, 别提了，meaning don't bring it up, right?
John: OK, so 别提, that's two 2nd tones, right?
John: Then a 了 on the end
John: Now, this next sentence is kind of interesting. What does the guy say?
John: So this word 恐龙, if you look it up in the dictionary, 3rd tone 2nd tone, you're going to find dinosaur, right?
Dilu: 嗯， 没错没错，但是恐龙是一个我们在网络上面说的一个词啊就是说长得比较难看的女孩子叫恐龙
John: So, an ugly girl is a dinosaur
John: So if it keeps happening again and again. And so in this case, apparently it's not the first girl like this that he's had a date with
John: OK, so how does he describe her again?
John: So this 还 is kind of like 'and also'
John: OK, so 'and also' what?
John: So, 恶心，is an adjective, right?
John: Haha. OK, 那是这里说的是又是恐龙
John: Yeah, so when you run into something again and again and when something happens again and again you can use this 又是，right?
John: Oh, it's you again
John: So, it's another rainy day
