Part 3

Philip is a Chinese teacher, and from Monday to Friday he has a busy schedule. In the morning, before classes, he prepares his lessons. That usually takes an hour. Then the school day begins.
Philip是个中文老师,周一到周五他有非常忙碌的时间表。早上,在上课前,他备课。那经常花费一个小时。然后学校的一天开始了。

At school, all Philip’s lessons last for 50 minutes, and in the morning he has primary school students. From 9 to 9 50 he has Grade 1 students. They are very young and very noisy. Philip is quite old and quite quiet, so he doesn’t like that class. From 10 to 10 50 he has Grade 7 students, who are OK. From 11 to 11 50 he has Year 4 students. Their Chinese isn’t bad, but they are lazy and always speak in English. Philip has lunch from 11 50 to 1.
在学校,所有的Philip的课程都要持续50分钟,早上他有小学的学生。从9点到9点50他有一年级的学生。他们非常的年轻并且很闹。Philip很老了也很安静,所以他不喜欢这个班级。从10点到10点50,他有七年级的学生,他们都很好。从11点到11点50,他有4岁的学生。他们的中文不算糟糕,但是他们很懒惰并且总是说英语。Philip吃午饭在11点50到1点。

In the afternoon he has high school students. The seniors have class from 1 to 1 50, and the 2nd years have class with Philip from 2 to 2 50. From 3 to 3 50 Philip has a teachers’ meeting, and then he marks homework. That also takes about an hour.
下午他有高中生。初级班从1点到1点50,二年级和Philip上课是从2点到2点50。从3点到3点50Philip有一个教师会议,然后他批作业。那也需要大约1个小时。

In the evening, after dinner, Philip teaches an adults’ class. This is his favourite class, and it goes on for 2 hours. Sometimes he goes out for a drink with the students after class, but he doesn’t drink a lot because he has to wake up early (except for Saturday, when he wakes up at 10).
晚上,晚饭以后,Philip教成人的班级。这是他最喜欢的班级,并且持续2个小时。有时他会和学生在下课后出去喝一杯,但是他不会喝很多因为他不得不早起(出了周六,他10点才起床)。
