Interview with Kai
Kai, you’ve been going to Freeman's Bay School for the past three months in New Zealand. How many kids are in your class?
I think 25.
Who are your teachers?
Anne and Jenny. Anne is a from New Zealand and Jenny is from Korea.
How do you get to school everyday?
I bike every day. It's less than 10 minutes away and I have a really cool black Fuji bike.
What’s do you like the most about school?
Probably guitar lessons. I’m learning to play the song, Get Back by Paul McCartney and John Lennon. I also like swimming when it was warm here and playing handball at lunch time.
It’s morning, here in Auckland and Kai is having breakfast before we go to school.
What are you eating?
I’m eating a crepe with ice cream.
Ice cream! How decadent. Your grandmother Oma would love to be here and share that crepe. Why do you get to eat ice cream?
Because we have shore power and get to turn on our freezer.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Auckland?
Getting books from the library.
What are you reading right now?
The Emperor of Nihoja by John Flanagan
What else have you been reading?
Lots of Asterix books. My favorite one is Asterix the Gladiator. It’s really funny.
I understand you’re learning about the stock market. What’s been your best stock pick?
BIDU, it’s the Chinese Google. I’ve made about $8000 on UP DOWN, a stock market game where I got to start with $1 million dollars.
Thanks Kai, it's time for school
