Jim:Have you ever thought of studying abroad?
Laura:Yes, I have. But I’d rather go to college first here in Shanghai.
Jim:If I were you, I would go abroad first.
Laura:Well, you know, you’ll have to have a lot of money in order to study abroad.
Jim:But your parents have the money. They can support you.
Laura:I wouldn’t say that. I’m grown up. I don’t want to spend my parents’ money any more. It’s theirs.
