You should try.
C'mon, Stella.
- Stella... - Try, try, try, try...
- Listen, I can't, I can't sing like that. - What's your song?
La la la la la...come on.
Well, there you go.
The First Lady was pretty good.
Hi President Obama and Michelle,
it's Seble from Brooklyn.
Are you going to have a big party before you leave office?
If so, could I come?
Seble, we are gonna have a big party before we leave office.
But I will be honest with you, it's gonna be after your bed time.
It's gonna be kind of a grown-up party.
But, if you want to come and see some of the Christmas decorations we'll see if we can be in touch.
Hi President Obama and Mrs. Obama.
My name is Amira and I'm 5 years old.
What advice do you give to 5-year-old girls who want to be President of the United States?
Ohh well Amira, I think that the most important thing is for you to work hard, and to study in school,
and to care about people, and start helping them now.
You don't have to be president to help people.
5 years old or 6 years old, or 7 years old...
You can be helpful to your mom and dad,
you can be helpful to your teachers,
you can be helpful to your classmates and your friends,
and as you get older, you can find other ways to be helpful to people.
And if you are caring about other people and treating them well,
then you may end up being president someday;
and if you don't end up being president,
it's because you'll find other ways where you can do great things.
Hi President Obama and Mrs. Obama.
My name is Jacob and I'm 5 years old,
and I want to know,
who tells more jokes?
Oh gosh, the president tells more bad jokes.
I will say this, Jacob, Michelle is actually funnier than me,
mainly because she teases me but I can't tease her.
I think that's fair.
So she makes a lot of fun of my ears.
Oh they're so big.
She talks about how grey my hairs become.
So white.
She talks about how slow I talk.
Awww god he's slow.
I can't say anything about her that she gets mad.
Nope, you can't.
So, I guess she's funnier.
Alright you can answer.
I am Absalon and I am 8 years old.
Barack Obama, you've been my president for my whole life,
and Michelle, will you be my president in 4 to 8 years?
Oh my goodness.
I think they might have been prompted.
Ah Absalon, how are you sweetie?
No, I'm not gonna run for president but what I wanna make sure you do is that you go to school,
you get good grades, because we're looking to you to possibly be a president one day too.
But you can't do that if you don't study and do your homework, and listen to your parents.
But we are out.
And laugh at your dad's joke, I think that's very important to being a future president.
Hi, I'm Jonathan, this is Scrabble.
We want to know what was the naughtiest thing your dogs have ever done in the White House?
Ah that's easy.
Well you tell 'cause you're always mad at Sunny.
So Sunny is a wonderful dog.
Sunny is our younger dog.
But there've been times where she just decided that the area near the Lincoln bedroom and my office
at the other hand of the hall from her crate
is included in being outside
when it comes to pooping.
Which is not true.
It's still the inside.
But she didn't always understand that...
Seems so far away...
But she does know that she...
She knows she's doing something wrong because like she'll just run and sneak.
She sneaks.
And sometimes I'll be in my office, and I'm doing my work, and I'll see this, like scurrying...
and I got to get up and run before she does her thing
'cause if I'm too late,
then there' a li'l..
li'l gift that she leaves.
She hasn't done that in a while.
She's gotten much better.
She's gotten got it getting better but...
- She doesn't do that as often, she's grown up. - Terrible
She's not a puppy anymore.
- Hi, my name is Tula, I'm 4 and 3/4. - 3/4
Do you guys ever have bad dreams?
Oh yeah, yeah we have bad dreams all the time.
You know one of my worst dreams,
my reccurring dream is that I procrastinated too much in college and I'm behind on exams.
You still have those dreams?
- I still have that dream! - Wow.
I have to wake myself...I'm sorry, to let it...losing myself in horror of that dream.
But yeah, I still have bad dreams.
And sometimes when I have a bad dream, I just have to wake up and get up.
What about you?
- I actually don't have bad dreams too much. - Oh c'mon!
No, I don't, 'cause when I go to sleep I'm so tired.
You don't do anything.
He does snore.
I snore.
She told people earlier on about that, that's okay.
She can do that.
- I can't tell people about her stuff. - You can't. No, you can't.
- It works differently. - Let's see what Stella wants to know.
President Obama, my name is Stella.
I'm 5 years old.
This is my song.
La la la la la. What's yours?
Yeah, what's yours?
Stella, I...I can't perform like that.
Uhh, you clearly have some talent.
But you should try.
- No. - C'mon, Stella. Try, try, try, try.
- Listen, I can't sing like that. - What's your song?
La la la la la. C'mon.
Well there you go!
The First Lady was pretty good
Yeah, yeah.
You've got talent, keep on working on it.
The air guitar thing I especially like, ask your parents if...
maybe you can find a real guitar at some point, 'cause I think you're going places.
- Thank you guys. - Was that it? - That's it.

be in touch 的意思是「保持聯繫」,也可以說 keep in touch,當你希望對方能跟你保持聯繫,就是可以用 be/keep in touch ,例如:
After I graduated, I stayed in touch with Ann for several years.
畢業後,我跟 Ann 保持了幾年聯絡。

而「主動接觸某人」、「取得聯繫」要用 reach ,例如:
However, we lost touch after she went abroad. I have been trying to reach in her recent years.

tease 是動詞,「嘲弄」,也可以指「很愛嘲弄他人的人」,例如:
His classmates tease him about his new hairstyle.

另外,tease 還有一個片語是 tease out,意思是「逆著梳頭髮」或是「解開」,例如:
She teased my hair out carefully with a comb.

We tried to tease out the answers without using any resources.

3be prompted3:04
這裡的翻譯是「串通好的」,其實源自 prompt 這個動詞,意思是「給某人提詞」,例如:

prompt 作為及物動詞時,指的是「引起、促使」,例如:
The president's speech prompted discussion on several topics.

另外,prompt someone to do something 這個片語是「促使某人做某事」,例如:
Nobody knows what prompted her to quit.

最後, prompt 當形容詞時,是「迅速的、及時的」,例如:
I appreciate your prompt reply. It's really useful.

procrastinate 指的是「拖拖拉拉、延遲」,

procrastinate 的名詞是 procrastination,表示「拖延的狀態」,例如:

只能說歐巴馬夫婦實在是太可愛,兩位還不時在鏡頭前曬一下恩愛,真的甜死小 V 了!但他們回答孩子們問題的時候,怎麼會有種爸媽的既視感......(沒啦)
