Introduction
The Mekong is the largest

around 4,500 kms long. The

river comes from the Tibet in
China, flowing through Tibet, Myanmar (缅甸), Laos(老挝), Thailand, Cambodia(柬埔寨) and the Mekong delta in

Vietnam.

The Tibetans know the river as the ―Turbulent (动荡的) River", the Cambodians as "Great Water", the Vietnamese as the "Nine Dragons River" and closer to home the Thai and Lao people refer to it as "Mai Nam Kong" - Mother of Waters!

The Mekong has a long

Work in pairs. Imagine that you are
Wang Kun and Wang Wei. Choose a paragraph from the passage and use the information to help you make up a dialogue.

WW: You know we’ve always wanted to do a
long bike trip. Why don’t we go on one

after we graduate from college?
WK: That’s a good idea. But where we going? WW: What about cycling along the Mekong River? WK: It sounds interesting, but how do you want to plan it?

WW: I think we should do it properly. We

must find the source of the river and
start from there.

WK: Well, the Mekong River begins in
Qinghai Province. That means we’re

going to be cycling at an altitude of
more than 5.000 metres.

WW: Oh, I think that’s exciting, don’t you?

WK: Remember that the air will be hard to breathe and it’ll be very cold. WW: That’s going to make it an interesting

experience.
WK: I wish you weren’t so stubborn. You

don’t know where it is but you still insist
that know better than anyone else. Now I

know that the proper way is always your
way, but have you looked at a map yet?

WW: No, I haven’t. That’s just a detail!
WK: OK. I can see by your determined

look that you won’t change your
mind.

We were both surprised to learn that

half the river is in China.
(means we thought that maybe more

than half was in China)
We were both surprised to learn that

half the river is in China.
(means that we didn’t know that half the river is in China)

Who do you think was right about the trip? Why?
I think Wang Kun is right, because if it
is too cold and too high, the trip will be

hard. People will have some difficulty in
breathing at a high altitude. Wherever we go we need an atlas so that we will not lose our way.

Discussion: In groups of four, summarize the main idea of the passage and tell why.
What’s the main idea of the text?

The passage tells us a main idea that no
success in life merely happens by describing my sister’s and my dream---taking a bike trip and preparations for the trip.

(Students can have their own opinions.)
