Terms in this set (29)
After Lisa arrived in Beijing, she didn't stay in the international students' dorm. To learn more about the lives of the Chinese people, she moved in with a Chinese family.
The landlord and his wife are both retired. Their daughter Li Wen works at a museum and lives with her parents.
Li Wen would very much like to go to America to study, so she asked Lisa to be her English tutor. This way Lisa won't have to pay rent.
Because Lisa speaks Chinese with Li Wen's parents every day, her Chinese has improved a lot.
Every morning Lisa goes out for a walk. In the residential area where she lives, on the street corners and in the parks you can see many people, especially older people, exercising.
Some of them stand in circles and have a good time dancing. Some form rows and slowly practice tai chi.
These people who exercise every morning have become a special part of the Beijing "landscape" and make the city seem full of vitality.
This morning Lisa is about to go out when Li Wen comes out from her room.
Lisa, today is Saturday. How come you are up so early?
I thought I'd like to learn tai chi with Uncle and Auntie. I didn't expect them to go out so early.
I thought you only liked to do yoga. How come you are interested in tai chi, too?
Tai chi and yoga are alike. Not only are they good for you, the movements are also very beautiful.
Lisa, look, under the big trees my mom and dad are practicing tai chi with those retirees. Go look for them.
Ok, I'll leave in a moment. They are so great; they look as if they were performing. Every morning I go out for a walk and see people exercising everywhere. Chinese people really take exercising very seriously.
That's right. Nowadays people pay more and more attention to health. Lisa, how do Americans usually exercise?
Generally, they jog, swim, play ball, and so on. Some people also go to the gym. As for me, besides doing yoga, I occasionally jog, too.
No wonder you are so healthy and have such a good figure.
I think if you want to be healthy and have a good figure, besdies getting plenty of exercise, you also have to pay attentoin to your diet.
You don't have one ounce of fat on you. Do you still need to pay attention to your diet?
Paying attention to your diet is not the same as losing weight. I think as long as you are healthy then you're fine. Weight isn't so important.
I'm busy with work and don't have time to eat well. I often just eat whatever I can find. How do you pay attention to your diet?
I drink lots of water and eat lots of vegetables and fruit. Besides, even if you are busy, you must have breakfast, and it must be nutritious. Have a big lunch because you have to study and work in the afternoon. Have a small dinner. Otherwise you'll put on more and more weight, because it's too close to bedtime.
We Chinese have a saying, "Eat a good breakfast, a big lunch, and a small dinner," which says more or less the same thing.
Really? The Chinese say the same thing? Then obviously, there's a scientific basis to it.
If you want to be healthy, you have to pay attention to other areas, too.
You mean you have to have a good lifestyle, right?
Right. Don't smoke, don't drink. Go to bed early and get up early. It's best not to stay up late. I can do them all except for not staying up late. I often have to burn the midnight oil to prepare for the graduate admissions exam.
Then you must find time to make up for your sleep deficit as much as possible.
You're right. I do have to pay attention, or my two eyes will soon turn into panda eyes.
