神童
Child Prodigies

【intro 今日导读】

Li Na started playing tennis when she was 8 years old. By the time she turned 14, she was sponsored by Nike. Two years later, at the age of 16, Li Na became a professional tennis player. She was a natural. She started earning a lot of money at an age when most kids are still in high school! She is known as a child prodigy.

Child prodigies don’t have to be tennis players. They can be actors, scientists, musicians, etc. To be a child prodigy, one must simply be young and talented. Sadly, many child prodigies do not have a very normal childhood, because they have to grow up so fast.

Sara is telling Kellie about her friend’s younger brother. Find out why in today’s English lesson about a whiz kid.

 

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Sara_R:  Hey, Kellie. Do you know any child prodigies?

Kellie:  No. Do you?

Sara_R:  Yes, I do. I just finished talking to my friend Jill, whose brother is a prodigy on the piano.

Kellie:  Oh, wow!

Sara_R:  Yeah, he’s really gifted. He’s just a natural. He was this whiz kid, and just got all this attention. He played at the GRAMMYs.

Kellie:  Oh, my gosh. Wow.

Sara_R:  He’s amazing.

Kellie:  Don’t you think they grow up too fast?

Sara_R:  Yeah, I think they probably do. I think he did grow up a lot faster than other kids…just because he has lived in the adult world since he was a kid.

Kellie:  So, he didn’t have much of a childhood?

Sara_R:  Not the same kind of childhood that other kids have, no.

Kellie:  I guess as long as he had a childhood. That’s important, you know?

Sara_R:  He did. And his family is really supportive and healthy. And he’s just this great kid.

Kellie:  I would love to see him play.
