C 俺有个问题想问您,俺现在在一个中国老人聚集居住的地方教英语,很想请您做教授,帮助他们克服语音和语调方面的困难。
JOHN: 我能行吗?(J今年70多了,土生土长的美国白人,当过飞行员,管过铁路)
C:您当然行了!您的语音语调比俺还差??
J: 我可以叫上我的太太,她曾是英语老师,比我有经验多了!
C:太好了!您们两个一起来。中国老人们都是来美国看他们的孙子孙女外孙子外孙女的,在中国都是专家教授学者,大部分人学的是俄语,没有系统的学过英语,有的即使学过,在语音语调方面有缺陷,他们很盼望和真正的美国人交往,学地道的英语!
J:我明白了。你们什么时间有课?
C:每个星期一和五的上午9:00到11:00,俺就跟他们说:俺的好朋友DOKIN DONUTS 大学的JOHN 教授要来给大家亲自上课!他们肯定要沸腾了!!

C:Good early morning!
A: Wow, why did you get up so early?
Charlie:Unfortunately I didn't sleep very well. I woke up at 2:30am this morning and couldn't go back to sleep.
B: You told me the other day that you used to work for Fidelity Investments years ago.
Charlie: That's right. It reminds me of a joke. At lunch time, i met another Chinese guy. I asked him where he comes from. He said: Shandong. Then I said: Wow, I am from Shandong, too. Where EXACTLY are you from in Shandong? Weifang.
You are kidding me! I am from Weifang, too!
Where exactly are you from in Weifang?
Linqu. Don't tell me that you are from Linqu, too.
My GOD! Honestly I didn't want to say that, but, in fact, I am from that county, too!
Your surname is Song?
Of course! Your surname is GU?
Without any doubt!\
WOW, Your parents know mine very well!!!!

Charlie: there is a saying in China, very popular, Down with Americans and their running dog!
A: So when do you think is the best time to attack China?
C: Have you heard Chairman Mao? He was the head of Communist Party of China, he regards the USA as an enemy. It was during 1960s, Chinese nowadays regards the Americans as their friends, not enemy anymore.
B: financially, or economically.
Charlie: Right. Now it is a money-governed society…almost everything is related to money.
D: Why “running dog”?
Charlie: running dog, here it means the followers. The USA and its followers.
A: Do you have any siblings ?
C: I got two brothers, and I am the youngest.
B: What’s their names?
C: They only have Chinese names, no American names. The reason I got my name: Charlie, because I got a English class in 1984 or 85 something, my American teacher, her name is called : Murry, she gave “Charlie” to me, actually she called me “Charles”. She is in California right now. I really want to go to America at that time, but I have no sponsor, no shlcolarship, and my English is not good….i asked her to be my sponsor, she said at that time she was the sponsor for two Chinese students already, and she suggested that I can work as a sponsor for myself…..
B: Wow, it seems you got a very good story.
C: Of course.
