== Translation ==
Each person makes a wooden card and writes their name on it. The cards are all put in a container and the Xiucai in charge takes the container, shakes it, and takes out one of the cards. The person whose card is chosen then needs to recite something, and if they recite well then the teacher will give them a get out of punishment card. On the card it is written: "avoid three hits with the wood ", and on top of it there is a seal. If the person can't recite (the text), they can take out the card and tear it up, and use their previous achievement to avoid getting hit.  If the person doesn't have a get out of punishment card, then they will certainly receive three hits with the wood.
What do you study Chinese for?
Although what you say may be so, I still think that it is not completely like that. Now that the emperor has unified the four seas, and all is ruled under heaven, the places where (the populous) uses Chinese are many. As for our Korean language, it is only used in Korea (Korean land). When you pass Yizhou and arrive in Chinese territory, because everyone speaks Chinese, if somebody asks you a question and you stare and are unable to answer, what kind of a person will other people look at you as?
Did you study Chinese because you like it or because your parents told you to study it?
My mother and father told me to study it
How many years have you studied for?
I have studied for more than half a year
Do you know it all?
I know a bit because I live and study with Chinese Xiucai (students) each day
What kind of person is your teacher?
He is Chinese
How old is he?
35 years old
Does he teach diligently?
Our teacher is originally (very) humble, and therefore is very diligent in his teaching.
Out of the Xiucai how many are Chinese and how many are Korean?
Exactly half are Chinese and half are Korean.
Are there also bad students?
Why would there not be bad ones? Although the head Xiucai reports the bad students to the teacher and they get hit, they do not know fear. In this the Chinese children's nature is really bad. The Korean students seem a bit more well behaved.
Big older brother where are you going now?
I am also going towards the capital city.
As you are going to the capital city, and I am Koren and am not familiar with the way, how would it be if I was to accompany you as a friend?
That is very good, we shall go together.
Older brother what is your surname?
My surname is Wang
