W：I'm busy year after year， but I've done nothing．
M：You've done a lot, my darling!
W：Please help yourself to whatever you like．Don't be shy．
W：Doesn't Joe feel it a shame to depend on his parents since he has graduated from college?
M：He has no sense．
W：Hi，what can I do for you today，sir?
M：Good morning．I bought this air conditioner here a few months ago．It doesn't work now．Can I return it or get it fixed?
W：What do you think about the teachers，John?
M：Honestly， I like most of them， except my Chinese teacher．She is quite young, but her class is too boring!
W：Is there anything else that you would like to buy?
M：No， thank you．I guess that's it． By the way， in case there's a flaw in this CD player， can I return it?
W：Yes. But you must return it within 30 days．
M：Is there a charge for that?I know other stores have a restocking fee．
W：There will be no charge at all．
M：I'm glad to hear that．
W：However, you must show us the receipt．Could you sign it here, please?
W：All right．Keep your receipt．If something comes up, you can show it to us and we'll give you a refund．
M：Thanks．I'll put it in a safe place．
W：Hi， Robert， what happened to your face? It looks swollen．
M：I have to go and get my teeth filled．
W：Did it hurt?
M：I don't even want to talk about it．It killed me!
W：Well， I guess you've learned a good lesson， huh! You have to take good care of your teeth．
M：No kidding．I can't stand the pain， but the bill is too large!
W：Don't you have a dental insurance?
M：I do， but it doesn't cover everything．
W：I heard you got a new roommate．What's he like?
M：Yeah， Bob moved in last week．He is a nice guy and so far everything is cool except his girlfriend．
W：Oh? What's wrong with his girlfriend?
M：She came to see him last weekend．She is a nice girl but there's something wrong with her voice．I tried to smile and be polite, but the whole time all I could think was "what's wrong with her voice"．
W：Well, I guess it might take some time to get used to it．
M：I doubt it．Listening to her talk is terrible．
W：Oh，come on，it's not that bad．
M：No， it's so much bad. And they invited me out to dinner tonight．I really have no idea how I'm going to pull it off．
W：I find it really hard to express myself in class．I have lots of ideas， but they never seem to come out of my mouth．
M：Let me give you a little advice．You know what the topics are，so prepare what you would like to say ahead of time．
W：I often do like that， but I'm worried about the responses from other people．
M：You have to be realistic．Not everyone is going to agree with you， but people will respect your opinion and they will respect the fact that you have contributed something to the discussion．
W：I'm worried that what I say will not make sense．
M：We could chat about the topic before class．I could check that what you want to say is logical and it would also give you a chance to practice speaking．
W：That's a good idea．What should I do if I have two minds about a topic?
M：That's easy. Express possibilities．People will think that you are pretty smart to look at the topic from more than one angle．
W：I didn't realize that speaking in class could be so easy．
M：The most difficult thing is to predict what other people will say．They will reply to your statements, but you can't be sure how．
W：Which impresses you more, a book or a movie?
M： The latter one would be my favorite．A great many movies have impressed me．But for the first time what I watched was Titanic． In my memory， I first watched Titanic when I was a pupil in the second grade， though I didn't know too much about the love between men and women．I was terribly shocked by the horrible catastrophe when it is sinking．Some are screaming，some are too scared to say a word，some are murmuring prayers in the Bible and begging for God's mercy．All in all, that was the first time I had viewed people's psychological status when confronted with the great disaster．And I learnt that men, including me, should always show respect to nature or properly reduce our confidence when saying men can conquer the world．
