Teacher Uill, a Sheonag.
Am bu toigh leat a bhith nad chunntasair nuair a dh’fhàgas tu an sgoil?
Well, Joan.
Would you like to be an accountant when you leave school?
Seonag ’S dòcha.
’S dòcha gum bi mi nam chunntasair, no ’s dòcha gum bi mi nam bhancair.
Bu toigh leam a bhith beairteach co-dhiù.
Maybe.
I might be an accountant, or maybe I’ll be a banker.
I’d like to be rich anyway.
Teacher Dè mu do dheidhinn-sa Tònaidh?

A bheil thu airson a bhith nad nurs nuair a dh’fhàgas tu an sgoil?
What about you, Toni?
Medicine, eh?
Do you want to be a nurse when you leave school?
Toni Chan eil.
Tha mi airson a bhith nam dhotair.
No.
I want to be a doctor.
Teacher Glè mhath. Ach feumaidh tu obair mhòr a dhèanamh mus bi thu nad dhotair. Very good. But you have to work hard if you want to be a doctor.
Ross Sin an leabhar a bha mise a’ lorg. That’s the book that I was looking for.
Teacher Ross, gabh air do shocair!
A bheil ùidh agadsa ann an leigheasachd cuideachd?
Am bu toigh leat a bhith nad dhotair?
Ross, take it easy!
Are you interested in medicine too?
Would you like to be a doctor?
Ross Bu toil. Yes.
Teacher Tha fhios gu bheil leabhraichean gu leòr againn air leigheasachd.
Trobhad gus am faic sinn.
I’m sure that we have plenty of books about medicine.
Come and we will see.
Teacher Tha seo glè mhath, Fiona. This is very good, Fiona.
Fiona Tapadh leibh. Thank you.

Càr rèisidh a-rithist.
A bheil ùidh agad ann an rud sam bith ach càraichean rèisidh, Philip?
And what’s going on here?
Eh?
Oh my goodness.
A racing car again.
Aren’t you interested in anything else but racing cars, Philip?
Philip Chan eil.
Tha mi airson càr rèisidh a dhràibheadh nuair a dh’fhàgas mi an sgoil.
No.
I want to drive a racing car when I leave school.
Teacher Agus thusa a Dhòmhnaill.
