2009-01-03 Let's Go Skiing
    2009-01-03 09:48:48     CRIENGLISH.com

A: Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to Listeners' Garden here on 'China Radio International'! I'm your host LPC.

B: And I'm JP. Happy New Year! It's great to be with you again for the first edition of 'Listeners Garden' in 2009.

A: Yes, thank you very much for continuing to support our work in the New Year.

B: As we step into January, most parts of China have entered their coldest season of the year.

A: But winter doesn't just mean coldness. It can also be full of fun. Skiing, for example, has become a trendy activity in China during the chilly winter period.

B: Right, it seems the bitter cold never cools people's enthusiasm for enjoying this fascinating sport. More and more people in China are catching on to the excitement of downhill skiing.

A: So on today's show, we'll meet some skiing fans and discover why they are so addicted to the exciting sport.

B: But before that, as usual we'll open our letterbox to see what our listeners have to say. Please stay with us.


A: Welcome back to Listeners' Garden. I' m LPC.

B: And I'm JP. Since late December, the weather has turned very chilly in most regions of northern China.

A: Although the word of winter seems to covey anything but warmth, I believe the idea of going skiing is sure to kindle the passion within many people.

B: Definitely. Skiing has become an increasingly fashionable winter sport among Chinese people. More and more urban dwellers are enjoying the fun of whizzing down the snow slopes, just like many people do in the west. Let's Go Skiing!


A: Well, it's time to wind up this edition of Listeners' Garden. To post any comments or suggestions, please email us at garden@cri.com.cn.

B: You can also listen to our program online by logging onto our website at crienglish.com.

A: I'm LPC, thanks for being with us.

B: And I'm JP, inviting you to join us again at the same time next week. Bye for now.
