Lesson 6: Happy Journey Around China
 

  韩佳: 以前就听人说过

  I’ve heard before that

  如果想看大连的山区风光,

  if you want to see Dalian’s

  mountain scenery,

  一定要去冰峪沟。

  you should go to the Bingyu Valley.

  从丹东出发,

  After leaving Dandong,

  经过了大约两个小时的路程,

  it took us about two hours’ drive

  我们终于来到了

  to eventually reach

  号称辽南小桂林的冰峪沟。

  the Bingyu Valley, known as the

  Little Guilin in southern Liaodong.

  这里就是我们在大连的第一站。

  This is the first leg of our trip

  to Dalian.

  快乐学汉语,

  Learn Chinese the fun way!

  王渊源:万里海疆行。

  And enjoy a happy journey

  across China!

  韩佳: 我是快乐的韩佳。

  I’m Merry Han Jia.

  王渊源:我是快乐的王渊源。

  And I’m Happy Wang Yuanyuan.

  冠男: 大家把设备都带好了,

  Is everybody ready?

  别落下什么啊。

  Don’t leave anything behind.

  韩佳: 哎,好嘞。

  Okay, let’s go.

  由于地形的限制,

  Due to topographical limitations,

  车队不能进入景区。

  the caravan can’t enter the

  scenic area.

  所以大家只好坐船进入了。

  So we have to take a boat instead.

  王渊源:真是太美了!

  It’s so beautiful here!

  韩佳: 要不然人家怎么会说

  That’s why people say

  南有桂林,北有冰峪呢。

  there is Guilin in the south

  and Bingyu in the north.

  你看前面那根石柱挺特别的!

  Look at that stone column,

  really something special!

  嘉宾: 这根石柱叫做中流砥柱,

  This stone column is called

  Zhongliudizhu,

  是典型的峰林现象。

  a typical phenomenon of karst

  topography.

  它的高度在40米左右,

  It’s about 40 meters in height

  我们可以看一下这块石柱

  Let’s see if this stone column

  是不是像是两个人依偎在一起的。

  looks like two persons leaning

  to each other.

  我们又称它为“夫妻石”。

  Locals also call it the Husband

  and Wife Stone.

  王渊源:我们到了。

  Here we are.

  韩佳: 不从那儿走。

  You can’t go that way.

  急什么呀?

  What’s the hurry?

  王渊源:不从那儿走那从哪儿走啊?

  If I can’t go that way, where

  should I go?

  韩佳: 你知道

  Do you know

  这介词“从”是什么意思吗?

  what the preposition “cong” means?

  “从” 表示起点?

  ”Cong” expresses a starting

  point, right?

  韩佳: 没错儿。

  Yes, you are right.

  介词“从”呢就是表示起点,

  The preposition “cong” means

  a starting point,

  后面一般可以跟表示时间

  normally followed by a word

  expressing time

  或者是地点的词。

  or place.

  我们举个例子来说吧。

  Let’s explain with an example.

  Wǒmen měitiān cóng qīdiǎn kāishǐ gōngzuò

  我们 每天 从 七点 开始 工作。

  We start work at seven everyday.

  好了。我们从那条路走。

  Okay. We should go along that way.

  王渊源:刚进入景区,我们就遇到了一个小麻烦。

  As soon as we enter the scenic area,

  we come across a small trouble.

  一条河挡住了前进的路。

  A river blocks our way.

  往回走,再想别的办法吗?

  Turn back or something else?

  那可不是我们的风格。

  No, that’s not our style.

  有句成语怎么说来着?

  What doe that idiom say?

  八仙过海,各显神通!

  Like the Eight Immortals, each

  has to show his true worth!

  陈杰: 你们快看,

  Look,

  那边水里的石头多像一群羊。

  how much the stones over there

  look like a flock of sheep!

  王渊源:好像是一群羊在过河呀。

  Like a flock of sheep crossing

  the river.

  韩佳: 当地人管它叫“羊背石”。

  Locals call them Sheep Back Stones.

  是典型的冰川期地质遗迹。

  They are typical geological remains

  from the Glacial Age.

  你看看那些石头

  Look, all those stones

  都是被冰块磨成的。

  were polished by chunks of

  ice passing by.

  王渊源:不光是这里的石头很特别,

  Not only are these stones special,

  连周围的山也很特别。

  but the surrounding mountains

  are also very special.

  这应该也是冰川的遗迹吧?

  Are they also remains of

  the Glacial Age?

  嘉宾: 您说得没错儿。

  Yes, you are right.

  这里的山里面的景观呢

  The sights in the mountains here

  的确是石英岩为主的。

  are mainly quartzite.

  是非常罕见的喀斯特地貌景观。

  This is a rare type of karst topography.

  王渊源:看来我只知其一,不知其二。

  It seems my knowledge is still

  quite limited.

  韩佳: 还说出一个成语来呢!

  You happened to utter a set

  phrase here!

  王渊源:我刚说了一个成语啊?

  Did I say a set phrase just now?

  韩佳: 你连自己说了成语

  You even don’t know

  都不知道!

  whether you have said a set phrase!

  “只知其一,不知其二”啊

  ”Zhi zhi qi yi bu zhi qi er” means

  意思就是说只知道事物的一方面,

  that you understand one aspect

  of something,

  而不知道事物的另一方面。

  but not another aspect.

  王渊源:“只知其一 不知其二”

  ”Zhi zhi qi yi, bu zhi qi er”

  就是只知道事物的一方面,

  means that you understand one

  aspect of something,

  而不知道事物的另一方面。

  but not another aspect.

  韩佳: 你可小心着点儿。没事吧?

  You must be careful. Are you okay?

  王渊源:没事没事。

  I’m okay. I’m okay.

  韩佳: 冰峪沟的水是景区的另一大特色。

  Water is another significant feature

  at the Bingyu Valley scenic area.

  我们脚下的本来是一座石桥。

  What’s under our feet is actually

  a stone bridge.

  不过因为最近雨水很多,

  But due to recent rains,

  水流已经漫上来了。

  it’s long been inundated by the water.

  我们只好趟水过去。

  We cannot but wade across the river.

  还真是别有一番滋味啊!

  This is indeed an unusual

  experience for me!

  王渊源:这冰峪沟啊

  Not only does the Bingyu Valley boast

  不仅有奇特的冰川地貌,

  a unique glacial topography,

  还是国家级的自然保护区呢。

  it is also a national nature reserve.

  我们越往里面走,

  The deeper we walk into the park,

  就越来越强烈地感受到

  the stronger we feel the appeal

  原始森林的召唤。

  of this virgin forest.

  这边空气真好啊!

  The air in here is really good!

  像一个天然氧吧。

  It’s like a natural oxygen bar.

  韩佳: 那当然了。

  Sure, it is.

  这里是仙人洞国家森林公园。

  Here is the Xianrendong National

  Forest Park.

  这里的植物覆盖率

  The vegetation coverage here

  应该达到90%以上。

  should be over 90%.

  有一千多种呢吧。

  And there are over 1,000 plant

  species here.

  嘉宾: 对。

  Yes, that’s right.

  韩佳: 这里就是赤松林了。

  These are red pines.

  你看那些赤松离我们多近啊!

  Look, how near they look to us!

  动词“离”呢可以用来表示

  The verb “li” can be used

  to express

  时间或者是空间上的距离。

  a distance of time or space.

  王渊源:“离”表示时间或者是空间上的距离。

  ”Li” expresses a distance of

  time or space.

  我们离赤松林不远了。

  We are not far from those red pines.

  这个应该是表示空间上的距离吧?

  This should be a distance

  in space, right?

  韩佳: 对对对。

  Yes, you’re right.

  还可以用来表示时间上的距离。

  It can also express a distance

  in time.

  举个例子说吧,

  For example,

  Xiànzài lí xiūxi shíjiān hái yǒu hǎo jǐge xiǎoshí ne

  现在 离 休息 时间 还 有 好 几个 小时 呢。

  We still have several hours

  before it’s time to rest.

  王渊源:还有好几个小时才能休息啊?

  Are there still several hours

  before it’s time to rest?

  韩佳: 紧张什么呀。

  Don’t be nervous.

  我随便举个例子而已。

  That’s only an example I gave.

  王渊源:你不早说呀。

  You should’ve said so sooner.

  不过这些赤松长得真漂亮。

  But these red pines are really pretty.

  咱们看到这么大面积的赤松林

  It is really rare for us to see

  还真不容易。

  red pines growing in such

  a large area.

  韩佳: 所以一定要好好看一看。

  That’s why we should take a

  close look at them.

  王渊源:在这个天然的森林里,

  What we find attractive in

  this virgin forest

  吸引我们的不仅是珍贵的赤松

  are not just these rare red pines,

  以及亚热带的植物,

  and some subtropical plants,

  还有奇特的地貌、

  but also the unique land formations,

  幽静的山谷、

  the tranquil mountain valley

  清澈的山泉溪流。

  and the crystal-clear springs

  and streams.

  还是让我们在赏心悦目中

  Well, we’d better take a look

  at today’s Feast for the Eyes

  好好地领略一下美丽的冰峪风貌吧。

  for a fuller glimpse of the

  beautiful Bingyu Valley.

  赏心悦目:

  冰峪沟素有“辽南小桂林”的美誉

  The Bingyu Valley is billed as the

  Little Guilin in southern Liaoning.

  同时又是国家级地质公园

  It is also a national geological park.

  典型的石英岩山体

  Its typical quartzite topography

  成就了独特旖旎的自然风光

  features numerous natural spectacles.

  清澈的溪流 宁静的山谷

  The limpid streams, quiet valleys

  珍贵的树种 繁茂的植被

  rare tree species and dense

  vegetation here

  让这里处处散发着大自然的原始气息

  all contribute to its primeval beauty.

  王渊源:大连的山区风光还真美啊!

  Dalian’s mountain scenery

  is so beautiful!

  咱们明天去哪儿啊?

  Where are we going tomorrow?

  韩佳: 明天要去庄河的海洋村。

  Tomorrow we are going to

  Haiyang Village in Zhuanghe.

  张超: 渊源,

  Yuanyuan,

  你干吗晃来晃去的呀?

  what are you walking back

  and forth for?

  王渊源:我裤子还湿着呢,所以…

  My pants are still wet, so …

  韩佳: 你就分散一下注意力嘛。

  You can do something else

  as a distraction.

  来来来,

  Come on,

  给大家出今天的有奖问答题吧。

  set the award-winning question

  for today.

  王渊源:这个我已经想好了。

  I’ve already figured it out.
