彼がとてもしてみましょう。マミは公園で昔の英語の先生を目にします。彼女の夫は、喜ぶから挨拶をしたらと勧めます。
That’s Mr. Magata, my old English teacher!
You should go over there and say hi.
It’ll make his day!

「目にします」
look at
Oh, well, actually. In this case we’re going to use the word, see. Because see means something that comes into your sight. We’re not talking about something that we’re actively trying to watch or look at. 目に入ってくる

「挨拶をしたらと勧めます」 say hi,
勧めます。 ダイアログにないですね。
No. Well, we say suggest she say hi. Or suggest she should say hi. Now you don’t have to use the word, should.
Americans usually just say, suggest she say hi. But a lot of British people would say, suggest she should say hi.
Now there are two different pronunciations. I say suggest.
And I say suggest.
Either way is fine.
Absolutely.

Mami sees her old English teacher at a park. Her husband suggests she say hi because it’lI make his day

Yup. That’s Superman, my old super hero. I mean a super hero.
No kidding.
He was my favorite ??? crusader until I found out I was a super hero too.
You should go over there and say hi, Wonderful Woman. It’ll make his day.
Well, Okay. Hello, Superman!
Well, hello to you, Wonderful Woman. Could you give me a moment? I’m in the middle of something.
May I ask what you’re listening to, Superman.
Eikaiwa Gakusyu.
I WONDER if I can join you.
Super
Me too.
Come on in.
And by the way, why did they call you Wonderful Woman?
Oh, well, it’s because I’m wonderful.
Oh, naturally.
And also for copyright reasons.
