Life makes one do all kinds of things, right? Farming the land, one can't earn a lot of money. The family has both old and young people. The young folks need to study and the old folks need to go to the doctor. All of this requires money. There was no choice! The result was that we wanted to open up a small restaurant outside our door. The food my wife makes is the tastiest in our village.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
