鲁斯:我很期待,我认为那会很有趣的。

Akane: Everybody in your family is from there?

茜:好,我知道了。鲁斯,谢谢你和我们分享。

Akane: And how big is your extendedfamily?

Akane: That's really exciting.

Akane: Hey, Ruth.

Ruth:Well, actually at the moment my brother lives in London and my parents live in Darbyshire and I live in Japan but very soon we are all going to move back in together.

Akane: Oh, and who is the youngest person in your family?

茜:你家里的所有人都来自那里吗?

Ruth: I have seen a picture of her, yes. She lives in Sweden.

Akane: Yeah, for sure.....So who is the oldest person in your family?

鲁斯:嗨,茜。

鲁斯:嗯,我想大概是八年前,很长时间了。

Akane: Ooh, are you looking forward to that?

鲁斯:嗯,这是个好问题。许多人会在圣诞节时团聚,但并不是所有人。我想可能只会在婚礼或者葬礼上才能见到所有的家人。

茜:哦,那你家里年纪最小的人是谁?

茜:那太令人兴奋了。

我想他是住在那里的,但我不敢肯定。

eg. That's for sure.

Ruth: Not big really. Well, there's my mum and my dad and my older brother and then there's me.

鲁斯:当然,我看过了。她在瑞典生活。

Akane: Oh, I see....Does everybody still live together?

2. for sure

茜:你家里有几口人?

茜:哦,我知道了……那你们还都住在一起吗?
