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.
