(A:Alice and T:Tracy are in the lobby ) 
A: 
How was your class today,Tracy? 
T: 
It was quite interesting,but I was surprised to see how quite the students are in class here. 
A: 
What do you mean by that? 
T: 
Alice,when I was in high school in the States,we were always noisy,rambunctious,and asking a lot of questions. Here,the students are completely different. 
A: 
Well,maybe it,s because your calssmates don,t konw each other that well yet. Once they get to know each other ,you will see that they also whisper,pass notes,and daydream in class. 
T: 
Is that so? the students here must really respect their teachers very much, because I see all of them do whatever their teachers say. 
A: 
We have been taught that we should respect our teachers as we respect our parents since we were in kindergarten. 
T: 
I see. The situation is quite different in the States. Teaching definitely is not a glamorous job there. 
A: 
Yes, it semms I read something like that in Newsweek. 
T: 
It,s true. The current situation is so bad that there is a critical shortage of teachers in U.S. school systems.
