Well…Because of the limitation, I used the chatting app to talk with one of my friend. And here is the chat history below：）
— — — — — 2015–10–20 — — — — —
Could you help me with a interview？
And I will use our chat history as my assignment
Sorry, just got back.still on line?
Do you have time？
Where have you been？
The bund.for a walk
Where are you now？
Xujiahui,near jiaotong university
Wow I think it is a bit far.. How much time did you take?
No,I moved there
Where did you move to?
Why did you move
It’s much more convient. And I can pretend to be a student more easily[Grin]
So in your daily life, where will you go? work?
And I need to know the vehicle
tranportation, you mean metro,bus??
A normal day of you… Where do you go and what do you take?
ok, got you
And how do you feel about it… delightful or disgusting
wake up at about 7:30, if I have a job for that day. i will take the metro since it’s the most convenient way to move around within shanghai.
How far and take how much time？
I might go for a walk every other day anywhere where there’s a park or a college, just for sightseeing. in terms of that I will use bus because I don’t like wasting time seeing underground tunnels.
Ah maybe more details…. So the bus is better than the subway because it takes less time
nooo , normally metro is the fastest way. but most of time it’s underground, not a very good view. so when it comes to sightseeing and leisure I will take bus.
comes for sight seeing
Well now I see the difference
So.. do you think there is a better choice or something like that?
how many time it takes for the metro , that depends on the location of my part time job. and If I do get a steady job, I think I will move near my company, and in that way I will use a bicycle..
How do you feel about the transportation in Shanghai?
and I do know you had really bad experience with the bus..so ,,good luck[Trick]
Yes I think the transportation in Shanghai is terrible…
Ahhh So how about you
if you take into consideration of the population in shanghai, you will forgive it I think
Yes… don’t like big cities now
there are almost 30 million people here. I have to remind you that chengdu have half less
So how do you feel
it’s ok… awful…delightful?
yeah, that’s a hard question..
or you accept it but think just… so so
Ah… and also the metro and bus stop, which is closer? It is far?
people gather around cities for better life, in early stage of the development of city. it’s hard to accept so many people all at once. but more and more people are coming…and I do think it will get solved overtime, a lot of time
So the feeling.. you know you feel not so good actually?
So how to solve maybe？You can skip this question maybe
Do you think about buying a bike or moto cycle
..I am in xujiahui, the center of district xuhui. the transportation is really convenient either way
Well I see
yeah. that’s for government to worry about[Grin]
Or buying some new smart trafic tool
yeah , I had one when I first came here. got stolen less than a week.so…
So.. don’t want it again?
Because the risk of being stolen?
Ah so if it can not be stolen… Will you think about it? Maybe a better way for sightseeing
I will buy one later[Awkward]of course if my room is big enough in shanghai for the bicycle
I think the interview is finished now maybe
What do you want to say about transportation
that’s really a big question[Laugh]
I saw a TED talk given by professor “who”, a city planner. when asked about nowadays transportation improvement(in terms of space and energy saving)
he introduced the idea of “sharing” and “smart”, which I think are really good ways to solve nowadays transportation problems confronting big cities. I will send you the link later.[Smile]
