Abstract A night out in Beijing-whether it's an ordinary, relaxing evening or the high point of holiday festivities-is certain to involve a lot of conversation. This program helps beginning Chinese speakers with the right phrases and vocabulary for buying tickets, finding out what time an event starts, discussing favorite pastimes, and much more. Cultural topics include: the booming nightlife of the Chinese capital, with everything from dance clubs to traditional opera; a behind-the-scenes look at spectacular live shows with young performers in training; and the exuberance of the Chinese New Year-as it's celebrated on television and out in the streets.
