Intermediate - Chinese New Year (C0037)

A: I’m so excited about Chinese New Year! When do

I get to visit Grandma? Grandma makes the best

dumplings in the world!

B: Ha ha, right. Sounds to me like you’re more

excited about the dumplings than seeing your

Grandma.

A: Of course I miss Grandma, too. I bet she’s gonna

teach me how to play Mahjong! Hey, Dad, are

you going to buy me firecrackers this year? We’re

going to have the best fireworks! I’m really looking

forward to lighting them!

B: Son, firecrackers aren’t toys; they’re dangerous!

A: No, fireworks are awesome!

Dad, can I sit on your shoulders this time?

envelopes. I wanna make a list of all the things
