"We spend 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 180 days a year in school. We start preschool or nursery school at age 4 or under, kindergarten at 5 years of age."

"During our leisure time, We spend much time watching television, listening to music or playing computer games. We are volunteers in a community service organization. We help take care of the elderly, the handicapped and hospital patients, and help clean up the environment."
