Guided Program


It's Mid-Autumn Festival, when the moon appears the biggest and roundest. Watch your waistline at this time of year because the traditional food is the mooncake in its many fattening varieties. In our dialogue, it's occasion to share one.

Listen for how the man expresses his satisfaction with the taste of the mooncake. This useful sentence pattern is transferrable to any food you may want to praise (especially in earshot of a host will surely be delighted to hear that you found the cooking to your liking.)
