My dad just gave me a call and said that the family's going to have our land requisitioned again.

Isn't that a good thing? Last time we relocated, we were compensated more than 200,000 yuan. Thanks to that money, we were able to get together enough money to put the down payment on a house in Shanghai. How much land is being acquired? What's the compensation?
kàn kan nǐ nà xiǎoyàng ，jiù zhīdào qián ！hái néng yǒu duōshao a ，jiālǐ yě jiù nà jǐ mǔ dì le 。mài guāng le jiù méi le 。wǒmen hái hǎo ，yǐhòu yě bù huí nóngcūn qù le 。nà cūnlǐ de nóngmín zěnme bàn ？
Look at you, all you care about is money! How much do we have left? The family's only got a few acres. After they're all sold, that's it. We're okay, but afterward we won't be going back to the village either. What are the farmers supposed to do?
kàn nǐ cāo nǎménzi xīn ？guójiā bùshì gǎo chéngshìhuà ma ，zhēngdì jiàn xīn chéng ，yǐhòu nóngmín dōuyào shìmínhuà ，jìn chéng shàngbān ，zhù lóufáng la 。
What are you so worried about? Isn't the country urbanizing? The land is being sold to build new cities. After that the villagers will all become urbanized, going to the city to work and live in buildings.
