Xiǎo Zhào ，zuìjìn hùliánwǎng jiā de chuàngxīnxíng qǐyè kě shì yuèláiyuè shèngxíng ，tīngshuō nǐ yě chénglì le zìjǐ de gōngsī ？
Xiaozhao, recently start-ups online are more and more popular. I hear you have also set up your own business, no?
hāi ，bùtí hái hǎo ，yī tí jiùshì yī bǎ xīnsuānlèi ā ，mùqián shìchǎng jìngzhēng tài jīliè ，nián chū chénglì gōngsī yǐhòu ，wǒ de zuòxí guīlǜ jiù wánquán gěi dǎpò le ，tóufa dōu chóubái le 。
Hey, don't bring it up or you'll make me cry. The competition on the market is pretty fierce. After starting a company at the start of the year, now my work life balance is completely messed up and my hair is already going grey.
nǐmen zhēn shì niánqīngyǒuwéi ，bùguò ，bié guài wǒ lǎoshēng cháng tán ，shíxiàn zìwǒ jiàzhí gùrán zhòngyào ，yě bié hūlüè le shēntǐ jiànkāng ，bìjìng shēntǐ shì gémìng de běnqián ya ！
You really are a young up-and-comer, but don't hold against me if I spout some cliches. Self realization really is important, and don't ignore the value of your health, one's body is one's best asset in a revolution!
nín shuō de yīdiǎn méicuò ，wǒ yǐjīng kāishǐ fǎnxǐng mùqián de zhuàngtài le ，yǔqí rén dào zhōngnián biàn zǎo zǎo jìn bìngfáng ，wǒ nìngkě shǎo zhuàn xiē yínzǐ ，hǎohāo yǎngshēng 。
You're not wrong there. I've already started to reflect on my current situation. Rather than going into hospital early in middle age, I'd rather earn a little less money and look after my health properly.
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.
