Watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup | Chinese Story for HSK Level 2 Practice

Welcome to our new series— Practice Your Chinese, HSK level 2. It’s designed to provide the HSK level 2 students with the most suitable materials for practicing Chinese. It can also be used for preparing the HSK level 2 test.

This practice series is just the extra part of our elementary Chinese courses, so if you want to learn Chinese in a systematic and efficient way, please choose the full courses (Chinese Pinyin, HSK Level 1 & HSK Level 2).

In each video of this series, first you listen to a story or dialogue at normal speed to get the main idea. Second, listen to the same material but at a much lower speed, and at the same time complete each sentence by filling in the blank with the words or phrases you hear. Lastly, answer a few questions about the story or dialogue.

Today’s story is about 世界杯(Shìjìebēi), 世界(shìjiè) means world, 杯(bēi) means cup, 世界杯(Shìjìebēi) often refers to the World Cup.  Below is the script and the translation of the story.

The script in Character

⼩李最爱的运动就是足球,而且他有很多和他⼀样喜欢足球的朋友。最近他们特别开心,因为差不多每天晚上都有世界杯的比赛。他们总是去酒吧,或者在一个朋友的家里一起看比赛。
今年的世界杯在俄罗斯,比赛的时间在中国常常是晚上。每天看完比赛的时候已经很晚了,所以最近他们都睡得不好,第⼆天上班的时候⼜困又累。
