W: Look! Wendy's in the playground, doing sports with her classmates.
M： But it's time for her to finish her schoolwork now.
W: Excuse me. How much is this hat?
M： It's fourteen dollars and fifty cents.
W： Good. I'll take it. Here is a twenty.
W: The camera is not in the car! You must have left it somewhere while shopping.
M： Take it easy. I remember clearly that you put it on the sofa in our living room.
M: After high school, I'll go to college and major in computer science.
W: I know it is easy for its majors to get a well-paid job, but I'd rather spend my college days studying how children learn.
M: I wonder whether the dentist could fit me in early tomorrow morning.
W: I'm afraid he's not available before midday.
M: How about 3: 00 in the afternoon?
W: He will be in a meeting and it will last about an hour.
M： Hi， I come to pick up my laundry.
W: OK, here you are. Please check and see if there is any damage.
M: I'm afraid that a button is missing.
W： Sorry. We forgot to sew the button back on. Please give me a second... Is it alright now?
M: Good. Er... But there is another problem. There is still a spot on the shirt.
W: Oh, that's so bad. I am awfully sorry. This is a membership card. You can pay 80 percent of the full price next time.
W: Excuse me. I'd like to cash 100 pounds of the traveler's cheque, please.
M: No problem.
W: One question, is there a service charge?
M: No, there isn't. Now， let's see. OK. I need to see your passport. And may I have your signature right here?
W: OK, here you are.
M: Very good. Would you like your money in 50-pound notes？
W: Well, I would like to have 10-pound or 5-pound notes instead.
M: Sure. Just a moment, please.
W: Good evening, sir. This is the assistant manager.
M: Oh, what's up?
W： I'm afraid we've had a complaint from the guest next door. He's trying to get some sleep as he has an early start tomorrow. I'm sure you can understand.
M: Oh, I see.
W: We do hope to give our guests a good sleep in our hotel. It is already after eleven. We'll appreciate it if you could turn down the music a little bit?
M: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize that.
W: Thank you for your cooperation, sir, and good night to you. Do you still need a morning call?
M: Yes. Thank you.
W: Mark is left alone at home. How's he feeling? I'm still worried.
M: Oh, honey, he's already 12.
W： Although he doesn't look anxious or unhappy, I know he's just pretending to be brave.
M: Take it easy! He's fine.
W: But we have to make sure that he knows what to do in case of emergency.
M： Of course he does. He took part in the first aid training program last month and passed the exam.
W: The exam? It cannot help absolutely in reality.
M: Hmm, you have a point.
W: I have got a solution. Let's create an emergency situation for him. Then he'll have real-life experience instead of just theory.
M: Shh! Keep the plan between us.
M：Breaking news. We've just learned that Typhoon Harry has changed its path, and it is not heading straight for the city center. We expect to have winds of over 130 miles per hour. The typhoon should arrive at about 6：00 early in the morning. Please get prepared for it; board up your windows and make sure they are fastened; tie your boats tightly. All ship timetables will be canceled. If you are planning to leave, try to get out of town quickly before 3 am.For those of you staying in town, stay indoors and out of your cars. After the typhoon dies down, the communication company will be out repairing the cables as well as the signal tower. Don't touch any wires on the ground. If your Internet and electricity go out, please be patient. Focus on the radio for more information.
