Lesson Idea: Hi @Constance_Fang and Team,
Hey ChinesePod team
I would really appreciate it if you did a lesson on staying in a vacation house for the weekend. I’m not quite sure how common this type of vacation is in China and Asia in general, but I know for sure that it’s very common here in Denmark (and most parts of Europe I guess?)
Nevertheless, when I talk to my friends from China about this topic I find it hard to describe certain words and situations, for instance:
- the word for ‘vacation house’; is the best translation 度假屋?
- how do i describe it, when i want to say that I have ‘lighted the wood burning stove’ (an indoor fireplace)?
- the purpose of us going to the vacation house is always to ‘hygge’. It’s a danish word for ‘feeling warm, comfortable, and safe’ that comes from doing simple things such as lighting candles, baking bread, and simply spending some quality time with your family. We find that these circumstances are most easily obtained in our small and primitive vacation house based in the woods near the ocean
It would be great, if you did a lesson on this topic, as I simply can’t find any good sources on this topic anywhere else
Keep up the good work.
