VIP Class Notes (Tibo) [S / W]

Speaking

The traffic of Suzhou is not good because the main town of suzhou has historical buildings and it is hard to reconstruct the layout of the main town so the traffic is a little bit bad. -> Suzhou’s traffic is not good / suzhou is often congested because the old town of suzhou has historical buildings and it is hard to reconstruct the layout of the old town so the traffic is a little bit bad / the old town was not designed with roads in mind / the old town was designer before cars were invented so there aren’t big roads….

I remember that there are 4 subway lines in Suzhou so the public transportation is very convenient.
Suzhou separates the old town and the newly developed district very clearly and they have to do something with public transportation to solve the problem of the traffic. -> to ease traffic congestions

at early stage of Shanghai actually most of the historical buildings are built by western people. -> at the beginning of Shanghai actually most of the historical buildings were built by western people

The style of the buildings is very different with the north China. -> with northern china
The buildings and the gardens but the gardens are very typical southern. -> they have a typical southern style / have a recognizable southern style.

Some of the gardens are very small but all very delicate and each view Is well designed.
they will calculate the angle and the time of some specific spots and you can see the moon on the lake/ pond at a special time of the month.  -> they will calculate the time at which you can see some views at some of the spots

The buildings in the north china are always very huge and suzhou’s gardens pay more attention at the details. -> buildings in the north of China / in Northern China . Suzhou’s gardens pay more attention to the details

they have a dedicated layout -> the layout is well planned 

I saw some articles of the person who has finished half day and some people have used half day to play all the games. for first pass  -> first pass holders / buyers  are able to finish 8 attractions within half a day

I think the Shanghai Disneyland is the newest in all of the world so the equipment and the design and the feeling is better than the old parks / the newest in the whole world

the Disney sea is the only sea park in the world. it is built aside the sea so there are some water games and the feeling seems like a pirate

Japanese are all into the cartoons so there are always many people in the park.

in Japan I stood in front of the cash table I finished the payment process I just found out some tickets and several people are waiting in line after me. The waiting in line culture is very typical in Japan. / in Japan I stood in front of the cash table after paying  / even though I had already paid and several people were waiting in line after me and didn’t mind.Japanese people are used to it

Writing

Disney park is a dream world for all people, and both child and adult can find their wonderlands in it. Almost everyone has some favourite disney cartoon characters and can find the memory and hanppiness in childhood as soon as enter in disney park. Shanghai Disney park has been closed for about three months according to the covid-19, many disney fans have lost their paradise for past three months. Fortunately, the Shanghai Disney park will reopen on May 11th, and the happy hour of fans will be back. Due to the current covid situation, tourists have to book the specific date tickets in advand and the park will limit the amount of the visitiors. The park announced that the visitors limitation is at most 20% of the maximum capacity,so I think this is a ideal period of time for touring Shanghai Disney park considering it is alway crowded in usual time.
