大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

如果你关注体育,关注网球比赛,你应该听说了英国女孩艾玛拉杜卡努赢了美国网球公开赛的冠军。艾玛很爱笑,笑起来也很好看。这个夏天,她是最闪亮的明星。

艾玛出生在加拿大,父亲是罗马尼亚人,母亲是中国人,来自中国东北的沈阳。艾玛两岁的时候,他们全家搬到英国,生活在伦敦东南部的Bromley。艾玛说,她的妈妈经常告诉她努力很重要,自律很重要。她的爸爸妈妈对她也有很高的期望,但是也非常爱她。小时候的艾玛很害羞,所以她的父母让她做各种各样的运动,但她最爱的还是网球。

她在学校的时候,每天都很早起床去网球中心练习网球,一直到早上八点四十五分,她回去学校上课。放学以后,她还会去网球中心练习。虽然艾玛每天都花四五个小时练习网球,但是她的学习一直很优秀。

艾玛还会说中文,在covid以前,她每一年都会回去中国沈阳,在中国体育学院训练。为了提高她的反应能力,艾玛还经常和中国的乒乓球运动员一起打乒乓球。在赢了冠军以后,艾玛还说了中文,感谢她在中国的粉丝。我们一起来听一听艾玛说了什么:

大家好,我想说谢谢。我希望你喜欢看我的网球,我现在特别特别开心。但是(should be 因为)我们赢了。再见,我爱你!

怎么样,她的中文是不是挺流利的?我在艾玛身上看到了非常重要的品质,那就是享受一切努力的过程。我希望能和你一起享受努力学习中文,学习语言的过程。一起加油!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

If you are a sports fan and you watch tennis matches, you should have heard that an English girl Emma Raducanu won the US Open Tennis Championships. Emma loves smiling and her smile is also beautiful. This summer, she is the brightest star.

Emma was born in Canada. Her father is Romanian. Her mother is Chinese. When Emma was 2 years old, her family moved to UK and lived in Bromley, southeast London. Emma said that her mum often told her that hard working was very important, and self-discipline was very important. Her dad and mum have high expectation on her, but also love her a lot. When she was little, she was very shy, and therefore her parents let her do all kinds of sports, but her favorite is still tennis.

When she was in the school she got up everyday to practise tennis in tennis center until 8:45, when she went back to school. After school, she would still go to tennis center and practice. Although Emma spent 4 or 5 hours practising tennis, her academic learning has been always excellent.

Emma can also speak Chinese. Before covid, she went back to Shenyang, China every year and did training in China Sports College. In order to improve her reaction capacity, she often played Ping-Pong with Chinese Ping-Pong players. After winning the championship, she also talked in Chinese to thank her Chinese fans. Let’s listen to what Emma had said:

"Hello everyone. I want to say thank you. I hope you like watching me playing tennis. I am now really really happy, but (should be because) we won. Good-bye and I love you!"

What do you think? Her Chinese is quite fluent, isn’t it? The important qualities I can see from Emma is to enjoy the process of working hard. I hope I can enjoy working hard in learning Chinese with you, and enjoy the process of learning a language. Let’s work hard!
