M: Mmm. Maybe you could tell me something about the learning motivation.

M: Well. It seems I should spare more time on studying.
w: SPARE? Sorry, I can not understand the meaning by spare. Would you please explain?
M: Mmm. to be honest. I am not that kind of student who are studying hard everyday. As the saying goes'Time to enjoy.' If I am right, I think maybe It would be better for us to have fun rather than studying all the time. Also, I am not mean tat we sould not study at all, but try to make a balance between them.

W: whoo. My god. How interesting! How wonderful you are! So that you won't die because of emergency.
M: Yes. Besides, I often met interesting people.
M: About half a year ago. I went to the Great Wall.
M: One day, the Chinese guide duided us enjoying one of the eight wonders in the world. Sunddenly, something hit me.
M: I have to go to the bathroom. so, I asked my guide embassingly. Since she is a girl. I have to require more politely.
