A few days ago I went to Guangzhou. I still have some lingering fears about a meal I ate there.

What was the matter?

There was a client who was constantly trying to take us out for game foods. He ordered pangolin, lizard, giant salamander, and owl. I hadn't even seen these animals, let alone eaten them. And, I think eating such cute animals is really cruel. How can people bear to eat them?

Cantonese people are famous all over China for loving to eat game. Generally, ordinary people eat common game, like rabbits, cats and such. But the ones you're talking about were all protected wild animals. Eating them is illegal. But it's just because of this that some rich people use this as a chance to show off their wealth, or to show their clients their sincerity. I think it's really inhumane, and it really should be forbidden.
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.
