Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2012-03/01/content_1945826.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Have you ever heard this story before? Tell it in your own words.
2. What do you think is the "lesson" in the Dutch Boy story? Do you know any other stories that teach the same lesson?
3. Roberto calls Mark a "mythbuster," someone who discovers that "commonly held beliefs" are not true. Do you know of some "myths" that have been "busted"?
