Lesson 053 He wrote dictionaries
Ms. Saito: Come on in, Boon. Let’s put the turtle in this water tank.
Boon: You’re not afraid of turtles, Ms. Saito?
Ms. Saito: No. I used to have a turtle when I was little.
Boon: Wow, you have so many books!
Ms. Saito: Well, I am an English teacher. Actually, some of them were my father’s. He passed away a few years ago.
Boon: What did he do?
Ms. Saito: He wrote dictionaries.
Boon: Dictionaries.... Incredible!
Ms. Saito: When I was a child, I was no good at sports.
Boon: Just like me.

Lesson 055 I want you to try it
Ms. Saito: Look! It’s a robot!
Boon: Who are you?
RoboCorpus: I am a friend of that turtle. My name is RoboCorpus.
Ms. Saito: You just said “corpus,” right?
RoboCorpus: Yes. I have corpus data in my memory. I am a translation robot.
Ms. Saito: That incredible! Corpus data is used for making dictionaries.
Boon: What do you want?
RoboCorpus: I want to make friends with you and learn about humans.
Ms. Saito: I see.... OK, come in. I have an idea. Listen, Boon. You said you don’t like P.E.
Boon: Yes. I hate P.E. because I have to run.

Lesson 056 He needs encouragement
Lex: I’m glad Ms. Saito let us stay here for a while.
RoboCorpus: I wonder if Boon will take part in the contest.
Jukichi: Ms. Saito wants him to feel confident.
Lex: Yeah, but he looked very nervous when he heard about the contest.
RoboCorpus: I think we should help him.
Lex: I am a dictionary, but I don’t know the best way to learn new vocabulary.
Jukichi: Maybe Ms. Saito knows a good method.
Lex: My only concern is his lack of enthusiasm.
RoboCorpus: How do humans become motivated?
Lex: Money! Profit! Humans want to be rich.
Jukichi: No. In his case, he needs encouragement.
RoboCorpus: Encouragement.... I have an idea.
