It’s already summer! Dad and I are planning to climb a mountain next week. I’m also planning to take martial arts classes after that. Do you want to join me?
I’d love to climb a mountain with you next week and try martial arts. However, I don’t think I’ll do well in martial arts. I’m athletic but kicks and punches are not my likings.

Martial arts are not just about kicks and punches. It also values concentration, discipline, and patience. Since you don’t like martial arts, what kind of sports do you like?
I like team sports. How about you? What kind of sports do you want to learn aside from martial arts?

I want to learn how to play team sports. Perhaps, I can try them next school year. I hope I pass the try-outs.
Sure, you can. You can also join the sports club with me. Anyway, let’s talk more about it soon. See you later, Sam!
