Dilu: Hello, welcome back to chinesepod, 大家好我是Dilu欢迎收听中文博客
John: Hey guys, I'm John, this is an Intermediate lesson
John: So you're saying, like, I'm browsing and then I run into some kind of like really annoying website?
John: You mean the content of the website is annoying?
John: OK, so you're talking about, like, annoying popups on websites
That's what I thought it should be, mate. But no matter how many times I listen, I am only hearing a "guo". 奇奇怪怪的!
John: So, first of all, to be clear what we're talking about, it's not a virus, right?
John: So 中毒 is a verb, right?
John: So, 中毒 means to get a virus
John: a computer gets a virus
John： ok, so it's not that, it's actually a kind of behaviour built into certain websites, right, so what exactly is going on here?
John：ok, "看一个新闻"..what does that mean "a news"?
Dilu: a piece of news
Dilu: some news
John: you can say "一个新闻"?
John: Alright and that's what the dialogue is about today, right?
John: So I think Chinese doesn't have, like, a really clear way to refer to these like we have 'popups', like popup ads, in English but the phenomenon definitely exists on the Chinese internet, right?
John: Alright, so let's listen in and find out how to talk about this problem
