P: Yang Chen, do you know why we are at the swimming pool?

Y: We are going to talk about swimming.

P: But we aren't just talking about swimming. We are going to be talking about the Olympic sport of synchronized swimming.

Y: 花样游泳!!!Do we have to talk about it. Patrick?

P: Yes, we do. Synchronized swimming, Yang Chen. You know, the sport that combines swimming, gymnastics and dance. Why do you ask?

Y: 我特别不喜欢Synchronized swimming。What a dumb sport!

P: How can you say that, Yang Chen? Those swimmers work really hard to get their routines in perfect unison. It is a very demanding sport, requiring strength and artistry.

Y: Strength力量,artistry 艺术,少拿这些大词儿吓唬我。 It's a dumb sport.

P: Oh, come on, Yang Chen. It is like ballet in the water.

Y: 水上芭蕾?噢,这下我明白我为什么不喜欢Synchronized swimming了,因为我不喜欢芭蕾!

P: Well, then I guess I am just going to have to show you how demanding a sport synchronized swimming is. Let's try to synchronize some of our moves.

Y: Do we have to, Patrick?

P: Yes, Yang Chen. We have to. Okay-- Raise your right hand in the air,

Y: 举起我的右手。

P: Come on, raise it up, then reach down and touch your left foot .

Y: Ooooh, noooo! (Splash!) Help!
