I turned round again. ‘I can’t hear a word!’ I said angrily.
‘It’s none of your business,’ the young man said rudely. ‘This is a private conversation!’

上星期我去看戏。我的座位很好,戏很有意思,但我却无法欣赏。一青年男子与一青年女子坐在我的身后,大声地说着话。我非常生气,因为我听不见演员在说什么。我回过头去怒视着那一男一女,他们却毫不理会。最后,我忍不住了,又一次回过头去,生气地说:“我一个字也听不见了!”
“不关你的事,”那男的毫不客气地说,“这是私人间的谈话!”

It was Sunday. I never get up early on Sundays. I sometimes stay in bed until lunchtime. Last Sunday I got up very late. I looked out of the window.

‘But I’m still having breakfast,’ I said.
