This final exercise is the most difficult. It trains the writing skill. Please translate the text from English to Chinese (in Chinese characters of course!) The Chinese text is intentionally hidden to facilitate the exercise. You just need to click to show the text in simplified or traditional characters according to your choice.
You are unlikely to be able to translate the entire text on the first try. It is best to proceed sentence by sentence.
Then do the same exercise orally.
An old friend
Xie Fei is an old friend I met in Beijing. He is Pekingese. He's a doctor from a Beijing hospital. He studied traditional Chinese medicine. He is currently working as a western medicine physician. He is 30 years old. He's a good person. He is tall and likes to talk a lot. He can speak English and Japanese and has a lot of friends. In China, he drives us to shop, eat and watch movies together.
He has a Japanese partner. This pretty young lady is called Wang Yue. She is 27 years old. Four years ago she was learning Chinese here and now she works as a teacher in a school. She likes reading. When she's not talking, she's a bit distant. They have a cat named Xiaomei who likes to sleep on tables and chairs.
