Tyler: Hello, my name's Tyler, Tyler Saunders.
Sylvia: Hi, I'm Sylvia, Sylvia Wang.
Tyler: Nice to meet you, Sylvia.
Sylvia: Nice to meet you too, Tyler.
Tyler: How are you doing today?
Sylvia: I'm okay, thanks, how are you?
Tyler: I'm fine, thanks.
Sylvia: So, your family name is Jones?
Tyler: What? Family name?
Sylvia: Yeah, family name...Jones.
Tyler: Oh, you mean my last name?
Sylvia: Well, in Asia, we call the second name, the family name. Your family name is Jones.
Tyler: Oh, okay, because the whole family has the same name so you call it family name.
Sylvia: Something like that.
Tyler: In Western countries, we call it the last name because it comes after our first name, so, where I come from, Jones is my last name.
Sylvia: So, Wang is my last name and family name.
Tyler: And Jones is my family name AND last name...I got it.
Sylvia: So, you go to this school too?
Tyler: Yeah, hey, didn't I see you last week with Rachel?
Sylvia: Rachel? Oh, Rachel Skylar?
Tyler: Yes, she's a friend of mine from last year.
Sylvia: Oh, okay, Her and I have the same math class. Sometimes we study together. She's really smart!
Tyler: She's smart alright and funny too! Does she still tell a lot of jokes?
Sylvia: Sometimes, like the one about the tiger and the clown and how they went to McDonald's and ordered a Big Mac and french fries?
Tyler: That's such a funny one!
Sylvia: Oh, hey, Tyler, I have to go to my next class.
Tyler: Yeah, me too. Say hi to Karen for me, will you?
Sylvia: Sure, okay, have a good day, see you around.
Tyler: Yeah, you too, bye.
