Alan: Kathy, this is a great party! Thank you so much for organizing it. It means a lot to me.
Kathy: Don't mention it. It has always been a pleasure to work with you. We'll certainly miss you.
Alan: I'm going to miss all of you, too. To tell you the truth, I feel a little intimidated. China is such a big country. I don't know if I can handle it.
Kathy: Don't worry. I have faith in you. You will do well. I've been on business trips to Shanghai a few times. The city is quite westernized, the food is excellent, and the women are very beautiful! You won't have a problem adjusting to the new environment.
Alan: Well, I'm glad that my wife didn't hear what you just said. She is looking forward to having some nice food, though. What's Shanghai cuisine like?
Kathy: It's a little greasy to me, but very tasty. They eat a lot of seafood.
Alan: It sounds interesting. I wish I didn't have to report to the Shanghai office that soon. I'd like to take my family on a trip across China.
Kathy: You will have plenty of time later on. I suggest that you settle down first. Moving the whole family to a new country is very tiring.
Alan: You're right. The first thing I have to do is to look for a good school for my son.
Kathy: A friend of mine is the vice principal of a well-known international school in Shanghai. Don't forget to get her number before you leave.
