I understand a little bit of Mandarin, but not enough to decipher this entire clip. Can someone help me understand the parts I left blank? The full audio file is here: https://www.columbia.edu/cu/ealac/chinese/audiolab_level1/1_N/L.9a.mp3

Sorry if it’s a little long but the vocabulary is beginners’ Mandarin. Thank you so much in advance!!
