Alistair Hill is a professional poker player who recently took part in the poker World Series Tournament in Las Vegas and brought back some extremely good winnings. ShaoLan teaches him the Chinese word for professional, which can apply to any field of expertise. She also teaches some extra words to describe different types of “professional people,” see if you can learn how to describe the type of professional that you are. As a final hint, ShaoLan makes sure that Alistair gets the tones right because “professional” can sound like “punch someone” if you use the wrong tone!
The Chinese word for “professional” or “expert” is 達人/达人. The first character 達/达 means “to arrive” or “to reach” and the second character 人 means “person.” So the person who “arrives at a good level” is an “expert” or “professional” 達人/达人.
