Tom: Hi. I don’t think we’ve met. My name’s Tom.

Tom: Nice to meet you, Jenny. So, where are you from?

Jenny: Well, originally I’m from Argentina, but we moved to the United States when I was about five years old. My parents now live in Chile. That’s where they first met. How about you, Tom?

Tom: I was born in Fresno, California, and we lived there until I was seven. Then, since my father worked for the military, we moved all over the place.

Jenny: Oh yeah? Where are some of the places you’ve lived?

Tom: Mostly, we lived overseas. We spent ten years in Korea, Germany, and Japan, and then, we were transferred back to the States three years ago.

Jenny: Wow. It sounds like you’ve had an interesting life. So, what do you do now?

Tom: I’m a university student.

Jenny: Oh really? What are you studying?
