Examiner: Hi. What’s your name?
Kelvin: My name is Kelvin.
Examiner: Kelvin, OK. So, Kelvin, I’m going to ask you a few questions. I’d like to ask you about your school. So, what subjects do you like most?
Kelvin: I think I like economics most because I can study different kinds of demand and supply theory and I can use it in my daily life to observe the market. I think that’s very interesting, yeah, and very useful.
Examiner: OK. And are there any subjects that you don’t like so much?
Kelvin: Actually, I don’t like physics too much because I need to calculate many difficult questions and all those mathematics words. I’m not really used to them. So, I don’t like physics.
Examiner: I see. All right. Well, how about in the future? Are you hoping to go to university?
Kelvin: Yeah, sure.
Examiner: OK, and what would you like to study there?
Kelvin: I think I would like to study something about business. So, I think nowadays we can only make a lot of money by participating in the financial sectors. So, I would like to study something about financial business. I want to get rich, yes.
Examiner: OK, that’s great. Thanks, Kelvin.
