qíguài ，rénjiā yào jiè qián gěi tā hái bù yào ，xīlà rén nǎozi shāo huài le ma ？
That's strange, people want to lend them money and they don't want it, have the Greeks lost their minds?
nǐ zhè rén kàn xīnwén zhī kàn biāotí ā ？jièqián shì yǒu fùdài tiáojiàn de ，yào jiǎnshǎo zhèngfǔ kāizhī ，háiyǒu jiāzhòng shuìfù 。
You only ever read the headline, eh? There are conditions to the loan. They have to reduce government spending and raise taxes.
kěshì zhè yāoqiú hélǐ ā ，bù jiùshì yīnwèi zhèngfǔ jiǎzào cáizhèng shùzì ，yǎnshì fùzhài ，cái zàochéng xiàn zài de qíngkuàng ma ？fùzhài de rén yào huán zhài ，běnlái jiù yīnggāi zǔnjié kāizhī 。
But these requests are reasonable. Isn't it just because the government were faking their numbers and hiding their debts, that this state of affairs came about in the first place? People should honor their debts, so of course they need to be more austere with their expenditure.
kànlai nǐ bùshì zhī kàn biāotí ò ，nǐshuōde zài dàolǐ shàng méicuò ，dànshì nǐ jiào yǐjīng shīyè 、pínqióng ，zhànghù lǐ qǔ bù chū qián lái de rénmín jiēshòu jiā shuì ，kěnéng ma ？
It looks like you didn't just read the headline, after all. What you're saying is right in terms of logic, but you're asking a people who are already unemployed, living in poverty and who can't take any money out of their accounts to accept tax increases. You think that's possible?
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.
