I think seneca has done a very competent job as a judge in this contest.  I don't know that he doesn ...

Thank you for your reply. Seneca is good at English but poor at Chinese.

He is more than an English perspective. He had biased opinion towards China and Chinese. He is not respectable enough to be a good judge. So please do stay here.  Thank you!

1. Man: Hey,  listen, I have got all 100 thousand [1] of savings from the bank. 2. Let's go and join in the immigration trend! [2]
3. Man: We would live as a landlord with our own house and car of course.
    Woman: Do you really think it's enough?
4. Man: Yes, it would be if we migrate to the countryside. [3]
    Woman: alas!
[1] He has more than 100 thousand.
[2] 可以简洁一点。

[3] 时态不对,因为“移民到农村”本来就是他的计划。

1.  Man: Check it out! [1] I've cashed all my deposits at the bank, more than a hundered thousand!
2.  Man: Sweetheart, let's emigrate!
3.  Man: We'll live like a king and a queen, with large houses and fancy cars! [2]
     Woman: (Thinking to herself) What? Are you kidding? With that little money?
4.  Man: Yeah, let's move...to the countryside! [3]

[1] He's just asking her to take a look.

[2] One house and one car is probably what he has in mind, at least in the beginning.

[3] For effect, it'd be better to repeat the word "emigrate".

2. sweetie, lets move to other countries! [2]
3. Man:We would live a life like the king [3] with a big house and sweet cars!
    Woman: the money enough to make that real? [4]
4. Man: Lets move to the village [5]

[0] Punctuation?

[1] Too clumsy, needs rephrasing.

[2] When you say "to other countries" here, most of the humor in this cartoon is lost.

[3] "like the king" is exaggerating too much.

[4] Needs rephrasing.

[5] Which village?
