this semester i've been busy, besides the classes required for my major, i also need to study chinese.
an entry from li you's diary
before i went to bed, gao wenzhong called, he told me there'd be an exam tomorrow, i said i already knew that.
the first period was chinese. the teacher taught us pronunciation, new vocabulary, and grammar. the teacher also taught us how to write chinese characters, and gave us a new text. the text was very interesting.
the second period was computer science, it was very difficult.
i got up at seven thirty this morning. after taking a shower, i had breakfast.
i went to the classroom at nine o'clock.
while i was eating, i listened to the sound recording.
while we were eating, we practice speaking chinese.
at noon i went to the cafeteria with my classmates for lunch.
in the afternoon i went to the library to go online.
next saturday, there will be a concert at our school, i hope you can come.
i do not write well in chinese.
because our chinese teacher can only speak chinese and does not know how to speak english, in the class we speak only chinese, no english.
please don't make fun of me.
how are you? long time no see. how are things recently?
at the beginning i felt it was very difficult. later, wang peng often helped me practice chinese, and i don't feel it is hard anymore.
li you is shopping for clothes in a store, the salesperson asks her...
miss, what are you looking for?
i'd like to buy a shirt.
what color do you like, yellow or red?
i like red.
i'd also like to get a pair of pants.
what size? large, medium or small?
something not too expensive, but not too cheap either.
how about these pants?
the color is nice.
if the size is right, i'll take them.
A: 您试一下。B: 不用试。
A: please try them on. B: no need to try them.
how about this shirt?
how much altogether?
twenty one dollars and fifty cents for the shirt, and thirty two ninety nine for the pants. fifty four dollars and forty nine cents altogether.
ok, here's one hundred.
forty five fifty one is your change.
excuse me, this pair of shoes is too small.
can i exchange them for another pair?
how about this pair?
no, they won't do either, this pair is the same size as the other one.
what about this pair in black?
this pair is the right size, but it's not a good color.
do you have any in brown?
i'm sorry, we only have black ones for this kind of shoe.
the style of the pair is pretty nice, this is it.
can i use my credit card here?
i'm sorry, we don't take credit cards.
but this pair is the same price as the other one, you don't need to pay again.
li you, are you going home during the winter break?
have you booked a plane ticket?
when is the plane leaving?
how are you going to the airport?
i'm thinking of taking the bus or the subway. do you know how to get there?
you first take bus no. 1, get off after three steps, then take the subway. first take the red line, then change to the green line, and finally change to the blue line.
oh no, that's too much trouble. i'd better take a cab.
it's too expensive to take a cab. i'll take you to the airport.
thank you for driving me to the airport the other day.
but i feel very bad for taking up so much of your time.
the past few days i've been going out by car to see old friends.
people in this city drive very fast.
i am really nervous driving on the highway.
but there are no buses or subway here, so i have to drive, it's very inconvenient.
when you have time, please call my cell phone or send me a text message. i'd like to chat with you.
new year is almost here, happy new year!
