亲爱的宽宽:
qīn ài de kuānkuān :
Dear Kuankuan,
天音告诉我,你下星期就要去英国念书了,你出发的那天我不能去机场送你,所以我写这张卡片给你。
tiānyīn gàosu wǒ ,nǐ xiàxīngqī jiùyào qù Yīngguó niànshū le ,nǐ chūfā de nà tiān wǒ bù néng qù jīchǎng sòng nǐ ,suǒyǐ wǒ xiě zhè zhāng kǎpiàn gěi nǐ 。
Tianyin told me you're going to the UK next week to study. I won't be able to go to the airport to see you off that day, so I've written this card for you.
自从高中毕业之后,我们见面的机会不算很多,但是每次见面的时候都很开心。上次跟你一起吃饭,你说你还是很想出国留学,没想到才过半年,你就真的要去了,真的很替你开心!
zìcóng gāozhōng bìyè zhīhòu ,wǒmen jiànmiàn de jīhuì bù suàn hěn duō ,dànshì měicì jiànmiàn de shíhou dōu hěn kāixīn 。shàngcì gēn nǐ yīqǐ chīfàn ,nǐ shuō nǐ háishì hěn xiǎng chūguóliúxué ,méixiǎngdào cái guò bàn nián ,nǐ jiù zhēnde yào qù le ,zhēnde hěn tì nǐ kāixīn !
From when we graduated high school, we've had less opportunity to meet, but every time we do meet we have such a great time. The last time I ate with you, you said that you still really wanted to go abroad to study. I never thought that after just half a year, you're really about to go. I'm so happy for you!
你是一个认真、努力、又坚强的人,我相信你在英国一定可以学到很多东西,我有机会就会去看你。加油!
nǐ shì yī gè rènzhēn 、nǔlì 、yòu jiānqiáng de rén ,wǒ xiāngxìn nǐ zài Yīngguó yīdìng kěyǐ xuédào hěn duō dōngxi ,wǒ yǒu jīhuì jiù huì qù kàn nǐ 。jiāyóu !
You're such an earnest, hard-working and determined person, that I think you'll learn a lot of things in the UK. I'll go and see you you there if I get the chance. Go you!
