challenge/ 挑战 /  tiāozhàn

A: I'm really afraid of heights, but I want to challenge myself this year by trying bungee jumping.    

我非常恐高,但是今年我想挑战自己,想尝试一次蹦极跳。

(wǒ fēichánɡ kǒnɡɡāo, dànshì jīnnián wǒxiǎnɡ tiāozhàn zìjǐ, xiǎnɡ chánɡshì yīcì bènɡjí tiào.)

B: I also want to challenge myself. If I hadn't seen that film "Free Solo," I wouldn't have been able to imagine that the willpower of people is enough to beat absolutely any difficulty.   

我也想挑战自己,如果不是看了电影《徒手攀岩》, 我无法想象人的意志力是绝对能战胜任何困难的。 

(wǒ yěxiǎnɡ tiāozhàn zìjǐ, rúɡuǒ bùshì kànle diànyǐnɡ "túshǒupānyán", wǒ wúfǎ xiǎnɡxiànɡ rénde yìzhìlì shì juéduì nénɡ zhànshènɡ rènhé kùnnán de.)

A: I really admire that rock climber. But for him to challenge himself without any safety equipment is really too dangerous.    

我也非常敬佩那位攀岩者,但是他在没有任何保护措施的情况下去挑战自己实在是太冒险了。

(wǒyě fēichánɡ jìnɡpèi nàwèi pānyán zhě, dànshì tāzài méiyǒu rènhé bǎohù cuòshī de qínɡkuànɡ xià qù tiāozhàn zìjǐ shízài shì tài màoxiǎn le.)

B: Yeah. You have to be careful with this type of extreme sport and you have to be able to judge your abilities.   

是的,做这样的极限运动是要很小心,并且要对自己的能力有判断。

(shìde, zuò zhèyànɡ de jíxiàn yùndònɡ shì yào hěn xiǎoxīn, bìnɡqiě yào duì zìjǐ de nénɡlì yǒu pànduàn.)

A: Recently, a tourist unfortunately fell while riding a zip-line. It is such a regretful tragedy. This incident can very possibly  raise the public's awareness. 

最近有一位游客坐高空索道的时候不幸跌落酿成了悲剧呢,这件事情或许能够去提高大众的警惕。

(zuìjìn yǒu yīwèi yóukè zuò ɡāokōnɡ suǒdào de shíhòu bùxìnɡ diēluò niànɡchénɡ le bēijù ne, zhè jiàn shìqínɡ huòxǔ nénɡɡòu qù tíɡāo dàzhònɡ de jǐnɡtì.)
