Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2012-12/04/content_2301932.htm

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

Questions:
1. Do you know anything about Xuanzang, the monk who really went to India? Find out about him, if you can.
2. "Journey to the West" is a fictional book based on an historical event. Can you think of other examples of this sort of book (or film)?
3. Ming mentions that "The Dream of the Red Chamber," along with other books, is extremely complicated. Why do you think readers in another time enjoyed that sort of story?
