M: Excuse me. Have you got any books on engineering? I've looked for them everywhere, but I can't find any.
W: I'm not sure if we've got any now. Books of that kind are on this shelf... Well, I'm afraid we're sold out of them.
W: Stand back from the door, please. Let the passengers off. You can't get on until the other passengers get off.
M: How much is the fare, please?
M: Let's do something outdoors today.
W: All right. But I don't want to play tennis. We played tennis last weekend. Let's go hiking.
M: What are you doing with that phone book?
W: I need to fly to Atlanta for a couple of days. My boss told me to make the arrangements, and he'll pay me back. I'm looking for a travel agency.
M: Honestly, travel websites all offer much more competitive prices.
W: What time does your plane leave?
M: It leaves at 12:15. And I have to get to the airport two hours early.
W: That means we have to leave the house at 9:15. There's half an hour before we start off.
W: Hello, you have reached the Furniture Warehouse. How can I help you?
M: Hello, yes, I need to schedule a delivery of a sofa next week. I ordered it online yesterday, but I won't be home this weekend to receive it.
W: That's no problem, sir. What day next week would be best for you?
M: How about Wednesday?
W: Okay, Wednesday. Wednesday is July 25, right?
M: Yes, I believe so.
W: Great. Our team can deliver the sofa sometime between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
M: Wow, can you be more specific? I'm not going to be home all day, just in the morning.
W: Oh, I see. Well, I will make sure they arrive before noon.
M: Okay, thank you.
M: What are you doing, Jane?
W: I am planning a party.
M: A party? What party? Your birthday party?
W: Of course not. My birthday is in December, don't you remember? It's the company's party. The general manager wants to invite some famous scientists, bankers and professors from universities to the party. These people are very important to the development of the company.
M: Have you finished all the planning?
W: Finished? You must be joking. I have just started. I still need to get a lot more information, and I'll have to write many invitation letters.
M: Can I help you?
W: Would you? That would be very nice. Let me tell you what to do first.
W: The exams are finally over! I'm so excited about the summer vacation. I have made all the arrangements for my summer vacation.
M: What are you planning to do?
W: Well, my family and I are planning to go to England. We've been talking about going there for years, and we finally went to a travel agency and planned the whole thing out.
M: Wow! That does sound exciting.
W: How about you? What's your plan?
M: I haven't really got any plans to travel anywhere. In fact, I intend to get a part-time job to save a little money for next year.
W: That sounds all right.
M: You know, I really want to buy a new computer next term, so I have to save as much money as possible.
W: Why don't you ask your parents for some money?
M: I don't want my parents to pay for it. I'd feel better about it if I
buy it with my own money.
W: It's good to be independent. Sounds like you have a great goal this summer.
W: Uh, where do you think you're going?
M: We're going to the new club, right?Oh! I can't wait to go to the dance floor and...
W: Ha! You're not seriously going out like that, are you?
M: Yeah, I know I look good! Just let me get my jacket...
W: Jason, you look ridiculous! Your jeans are too tight, and they look like they were washed too many times...back in the 80s! And why are you wearing that funny hat?
M: What? You've never heard of the New York Yankees?
W: I'm a huge baseball fan. I know who the Yankees are! But why are you wearing that hat backwards?How old are you, ten years old? And that jacket looks like a dead animal.
M: Well, it's not like you're dressed up or anything...
W: Exactly! I'm wearing comfortable clothes that are actually in style! See how I'm wearing colors that actually match? You're trying way too hard to look cool.
W: Please, just put on something simple before you scare some children...
Attention, all students. By now, all of you have heard about the event that happened at Coolidge Hall last weekend. On Saturday night at about 11:00, two freshmen reported that their TV, DVD player, and both of their computers were stolen from their dorm room. Their Samsung TV and DVD player together are valued at ＄600, but their Apple computers are each valued at ＄1,000. Because the total value of these goods is over ＄500, it is the most serious type of crime. So far, campus security and the local police have been unable to find the stolen items or the thieves. We need your help. If you were in the area of Coolidge Hall at the time of the robbery, and you think you saw something, please contact campus security at 658-2230. You can also stop by one of the three offices on campus 24 hours a day. Please do not contact the local police department directly. They are very busy with other cases, and they have asked that all information about this case go through campus security. Please keep an eye out for the items. Whoever took them probably wants to sell them before taking anything else. If you are offered some "used" electronics that match the description of the stolen goods, please call us right away. In the meantime, we are adding extra security staff around the dormitories, but please be especially careful with your valuable items.
