谢老师:Ten. In her school, her height is the tallest.

高思文:Her hair is very long and very pretty. Does she like sports or not?

谢老师:How come you don’t have time? Your company is even busier (now)?

高思文:This year is even busier than last year. I feel more tired than last year too. My office is also further (now), I drive to the company to go to work every day, (and) I need to use one hour.

谢老师:(It’s) too far! Do you want to come to our school to be a Chinese teacher? In our school, other people all don’t know Chinese, so we don’t have Chinese teacher.

高思文:Your guys’ school is very close, and very good. I hope I can go there and be a Chinese teacher.

谢老师:Can you also be my kid’s Chinese teacher or not?

高思文:Does she know Chinese or not?

谢老师:(She) knows some, not much. I hope she can learn and know how to use Chinese to type.

高思文:OK. I have time every Sunday afternoon.

谢老师:Sunday afternoon she has music class, do you have time Saturday morning?
