(今年的果园没有遭受雹灾.)&rdquo;<br /> Because of his heavily accented Mandarin and probably undereducation, he repeated it several times before getting it right.</p> <p>00:01 Reporter: Look at me, look at me and say, &lsquo;This year, the fruit trees, gardens, (gardener: I know) haven&rsquo;t been greatly hit by the hail disaster.&rsquo;<br /> 00:08 Gardener: This year, the fruit gardens have no hail disaster.<br /> 00:13 Reporter: &ldquo;This year, the fruit gardens haven&rsquo;t encountered a hail disaster.&rdquo;<br /> 00:16 Gardener: This year, the fruit gardens haven&rsquo;t been greatly hit by a hail disaster. (今年的果园没有饱受雹灾.)<br /> 00:19 Reporter: &ldquo;This year, the fruit gardens haven&rsquo;t encountered a hail disaster.&rdquo;<br /> 00:22 Gardener: Oh, haven&rsquo;t encounter a hail injury. (没有遭受&rdquo;雹伤&rdquo;)<br /> 00:24 Reporter: &ldquo;Hail disaster.&rdquo;<br /> 00:25 Gardener: &ldquo;Hail disaster.&rdquo;<br /> 00:25 Reporter: &ldquo;Good. Look at me. Look me in the eyes and say, okay? Okay, start.&rdquo;<br /> 00:29 Gardener: This year, the fruit trees haven&rsquo;t um&hellip;been greatly hit by a hail disaster.<br /> 00:35 Reporter: Umm&hellip; &ldquo;This year, the fruit gardens haven&rsquo;t encountered a hail disaster.&rdquo;<br /> 00:40 Gardener: This year, the fruit gardens haven&rsquo;t been greatly hit by a hail disaster.<br /> 00:43 Reporter: Okay. Thank you!<br /> 00:44 Gardener: Why thank me!</p> <p><strong>Chinese language Question:</strong></p> <p><strong>果园真的没有遭受雹灾,还是果园有遭受雹灾?</strong></p>
