A: भाषण के को बारेमा छ ?
B: नेपाली चलन र संस्कृतीको बारेमा छ ।

B: किन थाहा नहुनु, ठीक १० बजे सुरु हुन्छ ।
A: त्यसोभए हामी त्याहाँ कति बजे पुग्नु पर्छ ?
B: मेरो बिचारमा हामी त्याहाँ पौने १० बजे पुग्नै पर्छ, किनभने त्याहाँ गएर हामीले कोठा सफा गरेर मेचहरु मिलाउनु पर्छ ।
A: हामीले भाषणको नोट लेख्‍नु पर्छ कि पर्दैन ?
B: पर्दैन, अनिबार्य छैन, तर यदि तपाईले लेख्‍नुभयो भने राम्रो हुन्छ ।
A: साथी, नेपाली चलनमा कोठा बाहिर जुत्ता फुकाल्नु पर्छ रे, हो ?

A: गाउँमा त खाना पनि हातले खानु पर्छ रे हो ?
B: पर्दैन, तर के गर्नुहुन्छ ? त्याहाँ काँटा चम्चा पाईदैन त्यसोभएर हातले खानै पर्छ र खाना खाएपछि हात धुनै पर्छ किनभने हात जुठो हुन्छ - जुठो हातले केहिपनि छुनु हुदैन । यदि तपाईले जुठो हात धुनुभएन भने र अरुलाई छुनुभयो भने त्यो राम्रो हुदैन र मानिसहरुले तपाईलाई असभ्य अथवा जङ्गली भन्छन् । त्यसैले आज भाषण राम्रो सँग सुन्‍नुस् र प्रश्‍न सोध्न पनि लाज नमान्‍नुस् ।

अनुबाद (Translation)

A: Hello friend, namaskaar, how are you?
B: Namaskaar, I am fine, and you?
A: I am also fine. What's news?
B: Everything's fine.
A: Well, who is giving the lecture in class today, do you know? Because I completely forget.
B: Professor Kathy March.
A: What will it be about?
B: It will be about the customs and culture of Nepal.
A: Do you know what time it begins?
B: Of course, at exactly 10 o'clock.
A: So what time should we be there?
B: I think we must be there by 9:45 because we need to clean the room and arrange the chairs.
A: Do we have to take notes of the speech?
B: You don't have to, it's not mandatory. However it would be good if you did.
A: My friend, I heard that it's Nepali custom that you should take your shoes off outside the room, is that so?
B: Yes, you should.
A: Also I heard that in the rural areas you have to eat food with your hand, is that true too?
B: You don't have to, but what else can you do? You can't find a spoon or fork around there therefore you must eat with your hand, and after you finish eating you must wash your hands because they will be polluted. With dirty/polluted hands you should not touch anything. If you don't wash, and you touch people or things with your dirty hands, that's not good and people will call you uncivilized or barbarian. So, listen carefully to the lecture and don't be shy to ask questions.
A: OK, but how does Kathy know about all these things?
B: Oh no! What are you saying? Don't you know that Kathy lived in Nepal for so many years and conducted research?
A: Oh! Is that so? I didn't know.
B: Yes, yes. It's time to go. Let us go. Man, it is sometimes difficult to understand you.
A: Come on, don't get upset for no reason. I swear I didn't know that.
B: OK, OK, let's go now.
