M: I haven't received the furniture I ordered yet. Maybe I should call to check on it.
W: Don't worry. It takes at least a week to arrive.
W: Excuse me, where could I board the train to Changsha?
M: It was supposed to be Platform 4, but it's under repair now, just as Platform 5. So you should go to Platform 3 instead.
W: Good morning, how may I help you?
M: Hi, I'm new here. And I want to open an account and deposit some money. Here is my ID card.
M: Would you mind if I opened the window? We need some fresh air.
W: We also need to keep it quiet in here.
M: Anne, do you like the soup?
W: It tastes like something's missing.
M: But I followed every step in the recipe. What could have gone wrong?
W: It's actually not that bad. Considering this is the first time you have made it, a bit more salt would add some flavor.
W: Hello, I'd like to buy a pair of aerobics shoes.
M: What size do you want?
W: That's the problem. Size eight is too big, and size seven is too tight.
M: You should get size seven and a half. They'll probably fit just right.
W: Seven and a half. That sounds good.
M: Then what color do you like?
W: I prefer white to pink.
M: OK. Try this pair, please.
W: Are there running groups in this neighborhood? I've been wanting to run in the mornings, but I don't like to do it alone.
M: Yeah, there is a group that meets at the park a few blocks from the university. They meet every Sunday morning.
W: I should join them. I wonder how far they run.
M: They usually run to the river about a mile, I think.
W: No, that would be about three miles. I usually only run two miles.
M: Well, maybe running with other people will give you more energy. When I bike with others, I always go faster and farther!
W: Hello. Is that the registration office?
M: Yes. This is Jim speaking. How can I help you?
W: Well, I have a problem here. I have been in Chemistry 302B for a month. And today, Professor Anderson told me I wasn't on his most recent class list. I thought I was registered in his class, so this really came as a confusion.
M: Well, why don't you give me your student ID, and I'll just check to see if you are officially registered?
M: Just a minute. And you are Kelly Alton, right?
W: Yes, that's me.
M: Kelly, the computer shows that you are registered in Chemistry 302A. That's Dr. Bolton's class. Perhaps you have mixed up the two.
W: Derek, did you go to the basketball game last night? It was really exciting, and almost everyone was there. But I didn't see you.
M: I was dying to, but I missed it. I was practicing for my violin concert and I lost track of time. I guess you went, Eva?
W: I did, but I had to leave early. My mom asked me to get home before 9：00 so she could go to work. She didn't want to leave Rebecca home alone.
M: Your mom is on night shifts again? That's not easy.
W: Not easy on my social life, but it's just for a month. And she's taking care of a bunch of sick kids, so I can't really complain.
M: You'll miss the class play!
W: Well, I missed the end of the basketball game too. Right after I left, things really heated up. I heard we got most of our points in the last quarter.
M: Well, at least your schoolwork won't suffer. If you're home every evening, you can study and go to bed. I will still have to balance studying and practicing.
W: It will be worth it when you have a career you love, won't it?
M: Yes. I have always dreamed of being a violinist in the city orchestra.
Hi, everyone. Thank you all for gathering here in the hall. It's twenty to twelve now. I'll try to finish my task as soon as possible so that it won't delay your lunch break ten minutes later. I'm wondering if you all can hear me. Good, I'd like to tell you about some changes in our offices. Because our company is concerned about the environment, there are some changes as to how office waste will be handled. Starting from next Friday, containers will be placed throughout the office for recycling. Please note that all red containers are for anything that is plastic, while all green containers are meant for glass things. These containers will be emptied each Wednesday and their contents will be sent to a recycling factory. As you leave, please take one of the papers on the table at the back of the room. It summarizes all of the information I've just given you. Remember, the program doesn't begin until next Friday. So that's all from me. Thank you for your cooperation with this effort.
