1. Which relative did you most often see when you were a child?
误区：注意试试能不能把‘when I was a child’换掉，比如换成‘in my childhood’或者‘when I was a kid’，甚至可以直接说‘when I was 5 or 6’. 另外要注意的是过去时态的使用。
in my childhood 在我同年时期
come round my house 来我家拜访
stay over 过夜
hang out 一起玩
all the time 一直
tea parties 过家家/下午茶
scary story 恐怖故事
Well, I guess it’s got to be my cousin Jia. In fact, she’s just one year older, so we used to hang out all the time. I remember she used to come round and stay over on most weekends. One of our favourite things was having loads of tea parties and exchanging scary stories with her at night. Those were the days. I really miss that.
2. Who do you think is the most important member in your family?
bread winner 摇钱树
run around 到处奔波操劳
can’t go without… 没有谁不能活
Well, I don’t really know whom to choose, but perhaps I would say my dad is the one since he is the bread winner, you know, he’s always out there running around making money for us. In other words, I don’t think we can go without him.
3. Who do you like to go shopping with?
skint = broke 没钱了
tight with money 扣(不舍得花钱，或不愿意借钱给别人)
try out 试穿/试用
every single piece 每一件单品
fitting room 试衣间
run out of 花光了
grocery shopping 买菜
pay for everything 全部买单
Well, it depends. I mean most of the time I would prefer to go to the clothing store myself. You know, I would be able to take my time trying out every single piece in the fitting room. But if it’s towards the end of the month, you know, when I’m running out of my spending money, I would always want to do at least my grocery shopping with my mom, just so she can pay for everything.
4. Who do you look like the most in your family?
pay much attention to… 关注……
come out of the same model 一个模子印出来的
one thing I know for sure
= one thing I’m sure of 我至少确定的一点
hook nose 鹰钩鼻
Well, I’ve never paid much attention to that to be honest, but every now and then people keep telling me that I look like my mom’s twin sister. Still, one thing I’m sure of is I’ve definitely got my dad’s hook nose.
