M: Has Lucy called you back today, Jane?
W: Yes. She says Mary is going abroad next month，so they will call on me tomorrow.
W: You are driving too fast! Slow down, sir.
M: Sorry, I have to admit I’m a little nervous. It’s my daughter’s birthday today and I want to buy her a gift after driving you to the airport.
M: So what was the problem with your purchase?
W: These jeans don’t fit right. They’re too long.
M: Would you like to have them shortened? Or would you like a different size?
W: No. I want my money back.
M: Let’s do something different for vacation this year. Oh, let’s go to Colorado. I want to learn to ski.
W: Oh, Paul. You know I don’t like cold weather. Can’t we go someplace warm, like the beach?
M: Jane, do you have a map of Manchester? I want to find a good place to eat.
W: Why not try Chinatown? There are plenty of good Chinese restaurants there, and it’s near here.
W: Excuse me. We’re conducting a survey. Would you like to answer some questions?
W: Well, how much pocket money do you get from your parents every month?
M: About ＄50.
W: Do you get pocket money in other ways?
M: Yes. Most of my friends take part-time jobs to get pocket money. So do I. I look after my neighbor’s baby every Friday evening. They pay me ＄12 an hour. So I can get ＄48 from them every week.
W: Then, how do you usually spend your pocket money?
M: Well, I pay my phone bill every month. And sometimes I have to buy books for my study.
W: What a nice young man! Thank you for talking with us.
M: When are you leaving for that seaside town, May?
W: I’m not sure yet, but maybe I will leave on Friday after work. It’s a long drive. But I’d rather get there late Friday than mid-Saturday. We only have three days off this time.
M: How long does it take to get there?
W: Five or six hours.
M: Say you leave at 4: 30 p.m., right after work. Then you’ll be there around 9:00 or 10: 00.
W: I suppose so. And we could still have a good night’s sleep.
M: What about clothes? What are you going to take?
W: Mostly shorts and T-shirts.
M: I’m afraid it will be a bit cold at night at the seaside.
W: Maybe. Then I should take a sweater or a light coat, just in case.
M: Have a pleasant trip.
W: Hello. Harling’s Shopping Center. Can I help you?
M: Hello. This is Mr. Anderson speaking. I saw your advertisement on TV that you have got some good deals on men’s suits this week.
W: Yes, sir.
M: What I’d like to buy is a dark, business-type suit. Something in wool, I think.
W: We have some excellent pure wool suits. Wool has the best of everything, comfort, quality and value. What size do you want?
M: Usually I’m a 40, but I’ve gained a little weight recently.
W: Then you’d better get a 42. What color?
M: I’d like something dark gray, or navy blue, or even black. And I prefer a solid color.
W: You’ll be satisfied, sir. By the way, we have a fine selection of ties to go with the suits. Maybe you would like to have a look.
M: Oh, how much is it?
W: It’s ＄29, very cheap.
M: OK. I’ll come over and have a look at it. Thank you. Goodbye.
W: Thank you for calling. Goodbye.
M: Hi, it’s Charles Nelson. I have a reservation for tonight.
W: Hmm...Nelson. You have booked a room for two, right？
M: No, no. Hold on, there must be some mistake.
W: Okay. Let’s check...Here, Mr. Charles C. Nelson for tonight...
M: Ah, my name is Charles Nelson, not Charles C. Nelson.
W: I’m sorry. Let me check this again. Oh, yes. Charles Nelson, a room for one for the 19th of May.
M: No, a room for tonight, not for tomorrow evening.
W: I’m really sorry, but I don’t think we have any rooms available for tonight. Well, let me check my computer here. Ah! There has been a cancellation for this evening. A honeymoon suite is now available.
M: Great. I’ll take it.
W: But I’ll have to charge you ＄250 for the night. Well, the best I can give you is a 10% discount plus a ticket for a free breakfast.
M: Thank you very much!
Ladies and gentlemen, attention, please! Our bus will arrive at the Lake Park in a few minutes. You can feel the comfortable cool air coming from the lake. This is the favorite place for tourists in summer, especially on a hot summer afternoon like today. This lake is one of the great wonders of nature. No one knows when and how it was formed, but people began to build houses around the lake 100 years ago. So in this park, you can have a special view of houses of all shapes, styles and colors. In late autumn and winter, this park is the best place for bird-watching. School teachers like to bring children here and they just love it! Now our bus is driving around the lake. You can sit back and enjoy the beauty of everything here. The bus will take us to a good spot where you can take wonderful photos. Here we are! Please get off and watch your step. Please return to the bus in 20 minutes. Thank you!
