Chinese Stories 6 - Second Language (第二语言)

If you find yourself loosing motivation on your language learning journey, I present you this witty story on the value of speaking a second language. This story introduced me to 性 (Xìng) which is apparently added after a word to express "-ility" or"-ness" like turning possible to possibility or hard to hardness. It’s also used to add "-ic" or “-ce” like turning history to historic and, as seen in this story, important “重要“ to importance “重要性”. you can get more info from the link below. Enjoy! https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/Indicating_a_characteristic_with_%22xing%22

第二语言

一只母老鼠带着孩子出来散步,突然她看见一只猫正在灌木丛中虎视耽耽。

母老鼠向着猫叫道:“汪,汪,汪”,猫听了非常害怕,拼命跑走了。

母老鼠回过头洋洋自得的对孩子说:“现在你知道第二语言的重要性了吧。

Second Language

A mother mouse was out for a stroll with her babies when she spotted a cat crouched behind a bush. She watched the cat, and the cat watched the mice.

Mother mouse barked fiercely, "Woof, woof, woof!" The cat was so terrified that it ran for its life.

Mother mouse turned to her babies and said, "Now, do you understand the value of a second language?"
