Ms. Vasquez: Hello, Mr. Polo. I'm Ms. Vasquez. Please have a seat.
瓦斯奎兹老师：你好，波罗先生 。我是瓦斯奎兹老师 。请坐 。
Mr. Polo: Thank you.
Ms. Vasquez: In this parent-teacher conference, I want to go beyond Marco's report cards and his standardized test scores to talk about his general performance in the classroom.
Mr. Polo: That's great. I want to know how he's doing.
波罗先生：很好 。我想知道他的表现如何 。
Ms. Vasquez: Marco is a good student. He's attentive in class, a hard worker, and hands in his homework on time. Here's his portfolio, if you want to take a look at his classroom work.
瓦斯奎兹老师：马克是个不错的学生 。在课堂上，他能专心听讲、刻苦学习，按时交家庭作业 。如果你想看一看他的课堂练习，这是他的作业本 。
Mr. Polo: This is great. Are there any areas he needs to work on?
Ms. Vasquez: Marco is a good student, but he does sometimes misbehave. He often has disagreements with other students and loses his temper. I think he needs to work on his social skills.
瓦斯奎兹老师：马克是一名好学生，但是他有时也会犯错 。每当他与其他同学意见不同时就发脾气 。我认为他需要锻炼一下人际交往能力 。
Mr. Polo: Well, I don't think that's the most important thing, do you? His academics are the most important and he seems to be doing well in his subjects.
Ms. Vasquez: It's true that academics are important, but learning to work cooperatively with other people is important, too, if he wants to get ahead in life, don't you think?
Mr. Polo: I'll have a talk with him. I'm sure you'll see an improvement.
波罗先生：我会跟他谈谈的 。我敢肯定他会有所进步 。
Ms. Vasquez: I appreciate you taking this seriously. Again, Marco is a good student and it's a pleasure to have him in my class.
瓦斯奎兹老师：我很感激你能严肃对待这件事 。马克真的是一名好学生，我很高兴他在我们班 。
Mr. Polo: I'm glad to hear that. Good-bye.
波罗先生：很高兴听你这么说 。再见 。
Ms. Vasquez: Have a good afternoon.
