Whenever he visits his relatives, he keeps quiet for a
long time, as much as an hour, before he begins to talk.
I have known him for many years. He’s not very tall,
has a handlebar moustache, and wears a military uniform as a rule
Even though he is bald, he looks pretty young compared
with other people of his age. He has always just listened to other
people’s conversation/discussion/talk (alternatives for "talking") with
no specific comments.
Two days before I got married, although he is
Caucasian, he gave me a tiny red envelope, which contained a fifty
dollar bill and wished me the best for my marriage and my future.
When she teaches, sometimes she laughs loudly, so loud
that I have to cover my ears (she has a "horse laugh"). She’s always
happy, but very strict in her subject.
