Note to recorder:

I live in an historical town in the UK with lots of Chinese tourists. Every day I see tourists taking photos of each other and I always want to offer to take a photo of them together. I only know a few words of Mandarin. I'm a man, in case that makes a difference to how the phrases are said. Can you help?

Please could you record once slowly and once at natural speed? It would be great to have a couple of different recordings because I don't know the language.
