The students of Beijing Elementary School are very excited when they knew from Miss Bie that two young children from the USA will visit China. So,they prepared the welcoming ceremony performance. "Friends,I think at the welcoming ceremony performance,the girls will sing the Chinese National Anthem while the boys will do music assemble." said Deng Sanshui (Shui),the class leader. "Good idea,Shui. But,who will lead?" asked Dao Fanliang (Liang). "Liang,I'll lead the music assemble while Ao will lead the singing because she's the class secretary." said Shui. "Yes!" said Ri Naiao (Ao). "Man,I always wished to lead something,and now my dream's come true!" said Ao to Lang Deman (Man),her best friend. Man nodded. But suddenly,Yu Danwang (Wang) asked with a worried face,"But Shui,they'll speak in English with us. We're not good at English,so,how we could understand them?" Shui's face also became worried. "I'll ask Miss Bie," he said. So,Shui ran to the office and asks Miss Bie. "Shui,they'll come with a Singaporean girl named Chiang Lingqu (In China she's called Qu while in Singapore and other countries she's called Clarissa. Clarissa Cassandra Chiang is her full name.). Qu will be the interpreter. So,Qu will repeat the Americans' words in Chinese." said Miss Bie. Next week,the American children came. They all performed the performance. The American children loved the performance. "I'm Winston," said the young American boy. "I'm Coletta," said Winston's friend. After interpreting Winston and Coletta's words,Clarissa introduced herself. "I'm Chiang Lingqu. My other name is Clarissa." she said. Miss Bie introduced herself,too. "I'm Miss Bie Waner. I'm the supervisor of Year 4 Class." she said. All the students than introduced themselved. "I'm Deng Sanshui. I'm the class leader." said Shui. "I'm Ri Naiao. I'm the class secretary," said Ao. "I'm Dao Fanliang." said Liang. "I'm Yu Danwang." said Wang. "I'm Shao Fenxiu." said Xiu. "I'm Qing Diandi." said Di. "I'm Wei Hudie." said Die. "I'm Shang Meihua." said Hua. "I'm Li Yanling," said Ling. "I'm Lang Deman." said Man. "I'm Chen Mingzhu." said Zhu. "I'm Dan Yongcheng." said Cheng. "I'm Ya Weihao." said Hao. "I'm Ben Jiahui." said Hui. "I'm Lan Xiaoqing," said Qing. "I'm Hong Bali," said Li. They all talked together until it's time for Winston,Coletta and Clarissa to go home. "XIE XIE!! ZAI JIAN!!"* said Year 4 Class. "Bye!!" said Winston,Coletta and Clarissa. While,at home,Liang greeted his sister Dao Fanxing (Xing) and his panda mate Axiong. "Liang!!
