新年快樂 Happy New Year
Tony: During Spring Festival, dad took me to Chinatown. It’s really lively there.
Joe: Did you see a dragon dance and a lion dance?
Tony: I saw them. That dragon was really long. We also bought year cakes and daikon cakes.
Lily: Did your family do something over Lunar New Year?
Joe: The night of Lunar New Year’s Eve, my dad wrapped jiaozi, and the whole family ate New Year’s Eve dinner.
大文：我們家吃火鍋，另外還有糖醋魚和炒米粉。 Devin: Our family ate hot pot. In addition, we had sweet and sour fish and fried rice noodles.
張莉：我爸媽給了我一個紅包,叫我把錢存起來。Lily: My parents gave me a red envelope and told me to save it.
東明：我知道，那個叫壓歲錢。Tony: I know! That’s New Year’s money.
帶著外套吧Bring a Coat
Mom: With the weather this cold today, how can you wear a skirt?
Vivian: It’s really sunny outside! The weather’s quite warm.
Mom: But the temperature’s going to fall today, and it could rain this afternoon, too.
Vivian: I like this skirt the most. I’m wearing thick socks, too.
Devin: I’m wearing pants. That should do, right?
Mom: You all still aren’t wearing enough. The wind is strong. You should wear a coat, too.
Devin: I’m truly not cold. I’ve already started sweating.
Mom: Wear a coat anyway! Don’t catch a cold.
