W: Morning. May I have a newspaper to read?
M: Of course, but we only have yesterday’s China Daily. Do you want it?
W: Oh, forget it.
W: Good evening. Would you prefer smoking or non-smoking?
M: Non-smoking, please.
W: If you follow me, I will show you to your table. Your server will be with you right away to take your drink order.
W: I have to cancel my appointment today. When can we reschedule?
M: I’m pretty busy this month, but for my favorite customer, I guess I can make room for you on Saturday the 15th.
W: Perfect! I want to do something different with my hair, maybe change the color. I’ll see you then!
M: Mom, this year’s winter fashion has already come out. Why don’t we go shopping?
W: That’s all you have on your mind, shopping for new clothes. I was thinking about changing the decoration of our house.
M: Oh, boy! There goes my perfect vacation.
M: Wow! I have almost 400 followers on my microblog! I’m famous.
W: I don’t think that makes you famous. And I don’t know why you were so interesting! What are you writing that so many people want to read?
M: I write about fashion and the latest trends. I’m so good that I know what’s going to be “in” weeks before it’s actually cool.
W: Look at those pictures! They’re fantastic! You’re so talented, James. And wow, what a cool camera!
M: It’s a Nikon D200, and it’s really easy to use. But now, I’m planning to save up for a new Olympus E1. It will definitely cost me an arm and a leg.
W: Sounds quite professional. Anyway, would you please bring your camera with you next Sunday and take some pictures of us while we’re playing tennis?
M: Sure, you got it.
M: Hi, Amy. How are you doing?
W: Not too bad. I just heard that you got an “A” in math.
M: You did, too. But I got a “B” in biology. You beat me in that one.
W: I was just lucky.

M: Let’s pick our other courses for next term and do this again. I want to see who is better once and for all.
W: Okay. Be my guest. But what if you lose again?
M: I’ll take you out to dinner.
W: Good afternoon. My name is Dawn. How may I help you today?
M: Hello, my name is Sam Wilson. My car has broken down on the side of the road. I need some help.
W: I’m very happy to send out a truck to assist you. First, what is your phone number, in case I need to call you back?
W: Okay. Where are you at the moment? I just need to know the cross streets 天津癫痫医那家治疗好so I can send the driver there.
M: I am not sure, actually. I am not from around here. One moment… Okay, I am near the corner of Third Street and Hope Avenue.
W: All right, and are you okay? There are no injuries that need treatment or anything?
M: No. It is only me out here, and I am not hurt at all. It’s just the car that is having trouble. W: Okay. I have just called the truck. It should arrive in about ten minutes.
W: Come in, James. I’m here in the living room.
M: Thanks, Kate… Wow! Look at all this new furniture. You must have spent a fortune on it! I love your new three-piece set.
W: I told you that I had been saving up money to buy some new furniture and do some redecorating. I finally saved enough and did everything at once.
M: Good for you! You’ve got new curtains, too. That’s a very nice shade of blue. And this sofa is very comfortable. I could sit on it all day!
W: Do you like my carpet? Be honest! Tell me what you really think.
M: To be honest, it looks like your old carpet. Is it really new, or did you just have your old one cleaned?
W: Ha, I guess I can’t fool you! I actually had it cleaned twice because it was so dirty. That painting is new, though. You remember my trip to China? Well, I bought it there.
M: I love it. I’ve heard that the actual cost of paintings in China is less than the cost of sending them home.
W: That’s true. I bought a second bookcase, too, but it’s from the shop around the corner. Text 10
Learning a new language can be challenging and a lot of fun. Of course, learning a new language is possible at any age, but it’s easiest to do as a young child. Studies have shown that between the age of two and six is the best time to start learning a new language. When children learn two languages at this time, they are much more open to new sounds and concepts, because they haven’t gotten used to any one way of talking.
Though it’s not as easy for adults to pick up a new language, it’s still not impossible. Adults
usually have stronger interest in learning a second language. That’s why at the Great Leaps Language Center, we offer classes for children and adults. We also offer family classes where every member of the family is welcome. We offer beginning classes for people of every age. New classes are always starting, and we place you in classes based on your language ability, so you get the most out of your learning experience. The office is open six days a week, closed on Mondays. You can visit us online or call at any time if you have questions. We hope to see you soon!
M: I’ll take two cheeseburgers, two orders of fries, a large coke, and a vanilla ice cream. W: Oh, I’m not really all that hungry.
W: Did you always want to be a farmer?
M: No. I studie成人癫痫病有哪些症状d economics at school, and I wanted to be a businessman. But when my father passed away, he left me his farm, so I wanted to honor his memory.
W: Marcus, that’s very nice! What is it?
M: It’s a picture of my best friend. He’s a dinosaur!
W: Well, I love the colors!
W: Why are there so many people in line today? I’m here every Wednesday afternoon, and it’s never this bad.
M: Maybe it’s because of the special sale today.
W: What sale?
M: Hey, watch out! I’m in the crosswalk and you almost hit me!
W: You have a red light! You shouldn’t be crossing the street!
M: Oh, so now you’re the traffic police, huh?!
W: Just hurry up, buddy!
M: Miss Evans, I need you to do me a favor.
W: Sure, Mr. Harris. What is it?
M: Can you reschedule my meeting with Mr. Brown for tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 p.m. instead of 10:00 a.m.?
W: No problem. Anything else, sir?
M: Yes. My wife should be calling about our plans for this weekend, but I will be out of the office until 4 o’clock or so. Could you let her know that I will call her when I get back?
W: Absolutely, Mr. Harris.
W: Daddy, will I ever have a baby brother?
M: Well, sweetie, I’m not sure. Do you want a baby brother?
W: Yes, I do. I think being a big sister would be so much fun!
M: It wouldn’t all be fun and games, you know. You will have to share your toys and your room with him. And you need to feed him and take good care of him.
W: Oh! I don’t want to do that! I think I’ve changed my mind. I don’t want a baby brother after all.
M: Maybe we could get a puppy instead.
W: Yay! That sounds much better. Puppies are so cute, and they don’t need to share my toys! Text 8
W: Bobby, turn that TV off and set the table. Dinner is almost ready.
M: OK. I’ll be right down…
W: Honey, there are only going to be three of us tonight. Your father’s plane was delayed, so he won’t be home until after 10:00.
M: Aw, man! Why does he always have to travel so much? I feel like I never get to see him anymore.
W: I know. Your sister and I feel the same way, but this is the way it has to be right now. M: But you never travel for your job.
W: That’s because I work from home. I guess I’m lucky, but there are disadvantages, too. Your father is gone a lot, but he also makes good money.
M: Why doesn’t he work from home?
W: Well, working in sales means you have to be on the road a lot. If he stayed at home, how would he ever sell anything?
M: I guess you’re right. When I grow up, I’m not going to choose work over family like Dad. W: Don’t be too hard on your father, Bobby. He is doing this for us. You should be 癫痫对患者的危害thankful. Text 9
M: Thank you for agreeing to see me on such short notice, doctor.
W: Anything for my favorite patient! Now, what seems to be the matter?
M: It’s my vision. I can’t see well at night, and when I wake up in the morning, it takes me a few minutes before I can see clearly.
W: OK. I’m going to take a closer look. Just relax. How long has this been going on?
M: A couple of weeks, I guess…wow, that’s bright!
W: Does it hurt when I do that?
M: Not exactly, it’s just really bright.
W: OK. Please, go on.
M: Well, I was walking down to the basement in my house about three weeks ago, and I slipped and bumped my head pretty hard on the steps.
W: Where exactly did you hit your head?
M: Right on the back. I heard a loud sound when I hit it, but there was no blood and everything seemed to be okay.
W: You didn’t get it checked out then?
M: My wife said I should, but nothing was wrong, so I thought, why bother? Well, a week passed, and all of a sudden I started to have problems with my sight. I first noticed it when I was driving back home from work. It’s gotten worse over the past week or so.
W: I’m glad you came to see me. I’m going to order some tests, and I want to make an appointment for you to see a specialist tomorrow morning. Hopefully, it’s nothing too serious. Text 10

M：Hello. International Friends Club. Can I help you?
W：Oh, hello. I read about your club in the paper today and I thought I’d phone to find out a bit
M：Yes, certainly. Well, we’re a sort of social club for people from different countries. It’s quite a
new club — we have about 50 members at the moment, but we’re growing 原发性癫痫可否痊愈all the time.
W：That sounds interesting. I’m British actually, and I came to Washington about three months ago.
I’m looking for ways to meet people. Er… what kinds of events do you organize?
M：Well, we have social get-togethers, and sports events, and we also have language evenings. W：Could you tell me something about the language evenings?
M：Yes. Every day except Thursday we have a language evening. People can come and practise
their languages — you know, over a drink or something. We have different languages on different evenings. Monday — Spanish; Tuesday — Italian; Wednesday — German; and Friday — French. On Thursday we usually have a meal in a restaurant for anyone who wants to come.
W：Well, that sounds great. I really need to practise my French.
M：OK. Well, if you can just give me your name and address, I’ll send you the form and some
more information. If you join now you can have the first month free.
M: Excuse me. Can you tell me how much the shirt is?
W: Yes, it’s nine fifteen.
M : Hello, Harry’s Book Store.
W : Hello! Is Tom there?
M : Sorry, he is not here right now, can I take a message?
W : Yes . Can you tell him Jane called? By the way, may I know your name?
M : Mike Smith.
W : Normally, we supply three colors only: black , blue and red.
M : But we really want green ones.
W : In that case, it will be more expensive.
M: Oh, no.
W: What do you think of the plan to build a power station in the village?
M: It will ruin the village. And in any case, I don’t think it is necessary.
W: I can’t agree more.
W: Tickets are four dollars for adults. Children’s tickets are half the price.
M: Okay. I’d like two adults and two children’s tickets, please.
W: Here you are.
M: I’d like to stay two nights, please.
W: Do you want full board or half board?
M: What’s the difference?
W: Full board includes all meals and half board includes just breakfast and dinner.
