Lesson 144 Now it’s your turn to make everyone happy
Let’s listen to today’s story.
Sho: Yes, yes, yes!
Naoki: What happened, Sho? Are you hurt?
Sho: I’m OK, Dad. Miki texted me to say she got into the school of her choice.
Naoki: I’m happy to hear that!
Sho: Look! She sent a picture of herself with a big smile.
Naoki: So you tell each other about your exams by sending pictures, huh? When I was in junior high school, we used a pay phone to tell our families we passed. I remember there were so many of us lining up to use the phone.
Sho: You didn’t have cell phones?
Naoki: We did, but they were very expensive. Anyway, now it’s your turn to make everyone happy. Are you ready?
Sho: Yeah. You can count on me.
That's my number!
