zěnme tūrán shǎ le ？
Why did you suddenly blank out?
wǒ dǎ bǎo piào jīnglì guò gāngcái nàge shùnjiān ，dàn yòu méiyǒu zhēnzhèng jīnglì guò 。nǐ shuō wǒ shì bù shì yǒu tèyì gōngnéng ā ？
I would swear I had just lived through that moment. But I haven't actually lived through it. Do you think I have some kind of special power?
xíng le ，nǐ bié wǎng zìjǐ liǎn shàng tiējīn le 。zhè zhǒng sìcéngxiāngshí de gǎnjué jīhū měi ge rén dōu yǒu ，wǒ yě yǒu 。zài xīnlǐxué shàng jiào jíshìgǎn ，bù shì shénme tèyì gōngnéng 。
Oh, come on. Don't make yourself out to be something great. Just about everyone has this kind of déjà vu. I've had it, too. In psychology it's called ''sense of immediate vision." It's not some kind of special power.
zhēn guǐyì 。wǒ shíbùshí jiù huì yǒu zhè zhǒng gǎnjué ，yǒushíhou juéde mèng dào guò ，yǒushíhou juéde zài xiànshí zhōng fāshēng guò 。nándào shì shíkōng cuòluàn ？
Really bizarre. I have this type of feeling from time to time. Sometimes I think I've dreamed it, sometimes I think it really happened in real life. It couldn't be some kind of confusion in space and time, could it?
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
