还记得上一堂课提到的选股专家“孙太”吗？这一课我们特地做了一篇“前传”来让大家听听她的选股策略，除此之外，还要让大家听听怎么用中文在一般社交场合上赞美别人。 In last week's lesson we heard how the stock market drastically changed the life of “孙太” and how he vowed never to return to the stock exchange again. In today's prequel we hear what “孙太” was like before the event and learn how to use flattery in Chinese to get the answers you want from someone and how to politely decline someone's questions.

Agh, Mrs Sun. You're smiling very radiantly today, those stocks of yours have earned you several houses, yeah? You have to teach me. With your skill at speculation, the government should recruit you into the cabinet to take care of the economy for us!
āiyā ，qiáo nǐ zhè zhāng zuǐ shuō de 。zài zhè jiān hàozi lǐ ，Lǎo Zhào ，méi rén cháyánguānsè de běnlǐng gāoguò nǐ 。gāi bùhuì zhuàn péi shūyíng de shùzì duōshao ，nǐ yě liǎorúzhǐzhǎng ba ！？
Agh! Look who is talking. In our brokerage, Mr Zhao, no one's better at reading the market than you. I bet you're as familiar with all the earning and loss figures as with the back of your hand!?
nín zhè shì nǎr5 de huà 。wǒ dào xīwàng wǒ kàn gǔ xiàng wǒ kànrén nàme zhǔn jiùhǎo le ！zhè jiān hàozi lǐ ，wǒ shéidōu kànbushàngyǎn ，wǒ jiù yào xiàng nín qǐngjiào ne 。
What are you saying. I wish that I was as good at reading stocks as I am at reading people! There's no one in this brokerage who I would look to for advice more than you.
qǐngjiào bù gǎndāng 。wǒ zhè kě shì jiǔ ā ！wǒ gǔ hǎi fúchén le dàbànbèizi le ，guāngshì tóu jìnqù de lǎoběn jiù gòu wǒ mǎi hǎojǐ tào xiàngyàng de gōngyù le 。
I don't dare to pretend I've got anything to teach you. Anything I've learned has been due to bitter mistakes in the past! I've been speculating on the stock market for over half my life. The capital I've invested alone would be enough to buy several decent apartments.
