Xiaojie：（tries to fly kite without success）Why doesn’t it fly？
Renhao：Let out the string，let out some more，quick, run!.
Xiaojie：No, it still doesn’t work.
Renhao：The wind’s a bit light now, wait till it gets stronger.
Xiaojie：I never thought flying a kite would be this hard.
Renhao：Don’t give up，we’ll try again later.
Xiaojie：Dad, I’m thirsty.
Renhao：I’ll get you something to drink. Hey, wher’s my wallet？
Xiaojie：You had it when you bought the kite.
Renhao：That’s right，I clearly remember putting the wallet in this pocket, why isn’t it here now？
Xiaojie：Could have you lost it when we were running around just now？
Renhao：Maybe，but I don’t think so.
Xiaojie：Let’s look for it here.
（the two look around）
Renhao：We should give up looking here. I don’t think I lost it here.
Xiaojie：Dad, let’s report it to the police. Give me your mobile phone and I’ll call 911.
Renhao：Xiaojie, you don’t dial 911, but 110 in China. But since we’re in a park, let’s just report it to the security guard.
Xiaojie：Hey, dad，there’s a security guard over there. Come on, let’s go.
Security Guard：What’s wrong？
Renhao：We were flying a kite over there，just about a quarter of an hour ago，then I found my wallet was missing.
Security Guard：Did you have the wallet when you were flying the kite？
Renhao：We were flying the kite and didn’t really notice. But I remember I used it to buy the kite.
Security Guard：wher did you buy the kite？
Renhao：Just up ahead, not far.
Security Guard：What sort of wallet is it？
Renhao：It’s a square wallet，the colour of this pair of trousers.
Security Guard：What’s in it？
Renhao：about two hundred yuan, a credit card and some taxi receipts.
Security Guard：What’s your name？
Security Guard：(takes out a wallet) Take a look at this, is it yours？Somebody handed it in just now. You left it on the counter wher you got the kite.
Renhao：That’s it. Thank you！Thank you！
I didn't expect to meet him here.
He doesn't even know the answer to this question.
That tour guide answered all of the questions very simply and straightforward.
This problem has been solved in a very straightforward manner.
Rather than talking about the unpleasant business of having lost something, let’s focus on kites, which were invented in China. Even the National Aeronautics and Space Museum in Washington DC claims that the “earliest aircraft and were the kites of China”.
Chinese kites date back over two thousand years ago. Before the invention of paper, they were originally made with wood and bamboo. Some early kites were used for military purposes and were large enough to carry a man aloft so that he could observe enemy positions. Others were used to send messages.
The Chinese word for kite is 风筝. 筝 is a traditional Chinese musical instrument. In the Tang Dynasty from the 7th to 10th century AD, people would tie small strips of bamboo that would vibrate and hum in the breeze, sounding something like a 筝.
Today there are over 300 varieties of kites in China. Probably the best place to see them is during the national kite festival held every year in Weifang, Shandong Province.
Substitution and Extension
To run around; to be walking around
We've been thinking this all over the place, but we still don't know what we should do in the end.
2）和…差不多 not very different
The weather in Beijing and the weather wher we are is about the same.
This kind of fruit tastes quite a lot like pears.
