存钱罐

(cúnqiánɡuàn)

A: I think parents should pay attention to teaching kids how to save money. This way they can help kids understand that money isn't something easily earned and shouldn't be squandered.

我认为父母应该注重培养孩子的储蓄意识。让孩子懂得钱来之不易, 不能挥霍。

(wǒ rènwéi fùmǔ yīnɡɡāi zhùzhònɡ péiyǎnɡ háizǐ de chǔxù yìshí. rànɡ háizǐ dǒnɡdé qián láizhī bùyì, bùnénɡ huīhuò.)

B: I agree. I remember when I was little and started to get a sense of things, my mom gave me a piggy shaped still bank. Every time I got good grades on a test, she would give me some money to put in it.  

没错。我记得我小时候才刚懂事, 妈妈就送给我一个小猪形状的存钱罐, 每次考试拿到好成绩, 她都会给我一笔钱让我放进去。

(méicuò. wǒ jìdé wǒ xiǎoshíhòu cái ɡānɡ dǒnɡshì, māma jiù sònɡɡěi wǒ yīɡè xiǎozhū xínɡzhuànɡ de cúnqiánɡuàn, měicì kǎoshì nádào hǎochénɡjì, tā dōuhuì ɡěi wǒ yībǐqián rànɡ wǒ fànɡ jìnqù.)

A: This is a really good habit.

这真是一个好习惯。

(zhè zhēnshì yīɡè hǎo xíɡuàn.)
