transcript

 

女儿: 喂?哎,妈!你怎么这么快就打过来啦?

Daughter : Hello? Hey, Mom! How come you call me so soon?

 

妈妈:怎么样? 家搬好了吗?

Mom: How is everything? Have you moved to your new place?

 

女儿:啊,搬过来啦。

Daughter : Ah, yes, I have.

 

妈妈:呵呵,房子怎么样啊?

Mom: Hoho. How is the house?

 

女儿:嗯,还行吧,虽然小是小了一点儿,但是够我一个人住就可以啦。

Daughter : Well, it’s ok. Although it’s a bit small, it’s big enough to live alone.

 

妈妈:苏淳呢?

Mom: How about Su Chun?

 

女儿:他啊,他给我搬完家就回去了。

Daughter :Him, ah. He went back home after helping me move.

 

妈妈:你们两个打算什么时候结婚啊?

Mom: When are you planning to get married?

 

女儿:我们打算明年十一结婚吧。

Daughter : We plan to marry next November.

 

妈妈:明年十一。

Mom:  November next year.

 

女儿:啊,那,那不是还有一年多嘛。

Daughter : Ah, then, it’s still over a year.

 

妈妈:你得先有事业基础才能结婚呐!

Mom: You know you should have a career first then get married.

 

女儿:知道先有事业基础再结。

Daughter :We know that we should first build career then get married.

 

妈妈:房子呢?

Mom: How about the house?

 

女儿:房子啊,房子嘛就先租着呗!等什么时候攒够了首期什么时候再买呗。

Daughter :The house? We will rent a house first! Then we will buy one when we save enough money for down payment.

女儿:哎对了,海藻怎么样啊?她志愿填得怎么样啦?

Daughter : Oh, by the way, how’s Hai zao? How about her filling out the college application?

 

妈妈:我是打算让海藻考省里的大学,这样毕业以后跟我们在一起。哦,我养两个孩子总不能都离我而去吧!

Mom: I meant to let Hai zao go to the universities in our province, then she will be with us after her graduation. Oh, I cannot let both of my children going away from me!

 

妈妈:你翅膀硬要飞就飞了吧!我留海澡和我作伴。

Mom:  If you are old enough and you want to leave, go ahead! I will keep Hai zao being my company.

 

女儿:妈,你可别糊涂啊,哎是给你作伴儿重要还是海澡的前途重要啊?你不是还有爸呢!海藻学习成绩这么好,你干嘛不让她到这儿来读书呢?

Daughter :Mom, don’t make that kind of mistake. Is beingyour company more important than Hai zao’s future? And don’t you have our father? Hai zao is very good at studying, Why not let her go to a college here?

 

女儿:哎我们老家的大学能和这儿的比吗?这事儿不行,这事儿得听我的,海藻啊就得跟我在一起,到大城市里来读书!

Daughter : The universities in our hometown can’t compare to the ones here. It won’t work. You have to listen to me on this, Hai zao has to be with us, she needs to come to study in abig city.
