M: Excuse me, I want to go to Peking University. Can I take a bus there?
W: I am afraid not, but there is a subway station nearby.
M: Mom, I just finished my paper. Can you check it before I hand it in?
W: Of course, let me take a look. Sweetie, this is wonderful. Your ideas are so creative.
W: Shall we climb up the mountain, Sam?
M: Great. Let's go.
W: Remember we have to return here by 11:30, so we won't miss the lunch which starts half an hour later.
M: Hello, how can I help you?
W: I would like to borrow an English novel.
M: Sure. We have a wide range of English books for you to choose from. Do remember to return the book on time.
M: Laura, you have had so many deliveries lately.
W: Yes. I'm buying new year gifts for my family. I've got two smart phones for my parents, flowers for my husband and books for my children.
M: Thanks for coming in on such short notice. Did you find our office easily?
W: Yes. I just go with the directions you gave me.
M: Good. Let's get right into your interview. We're looking for someone who can work part-time and the job pays well.
W: No problem. I can do either full-time or part-time. But I prefer the latter.
M: Honey, how was your morning jog?
W: Very good. I feel quite refreshed now. You should come with me sometime. Exercise is good for you.
M: You know me, I hate running. To be honest, I'd rather watch TV.
W: You can't be too lazy. The doctor suggests you should start playing sports to keep healthy.
M: OK. I'll follow the doctor's advice. But the question is which sport I should begin with.
W: How about swimming?
M: No, I'm afraid of water.
W: Really? How about skiing?
M: I can't. I'm afraid I'd break my leg.
W: Oh, well, is biking OK?
M: Good idea. Not only is it safe, but also it is environmentally friendly.
W: Then it is a deal. I will cycle with you to keep you company.
W: Hi, ABC Computer. How may I help you?
M: I purchased this computer less than two months ago. But it just stopped working out of the blue, so I'd like to return it.
W: Okay, sir, do you have your receipt or some other type of proof of purchase with you?
M: Yeah, here you go.
W: Oh, I'm sorry, sir. It appears that this item only has a 30-day money-back guarantee. Since you bought it 40 days ago, I'm afraid you can't get your money back.
M: But I think it's a faulty product. Why else would it just stop working?
W: Well, to test whether the product is faulty, you'll need to take it to a different location.
M: Come on. That's a bit inconvenient, don't you think?
W: I'm afraid that's our policy, sir. If you don't want to do that, I can offer you a discount on the repair service, or you may exchange the computer for a new one.
M: OK, I'd like a new one.
W: It is pouring outside. Do you get wet?
M: No, I took a taxi. It's very nice of you to invite me.
W: I'm very glad you could come, Mr. Simpson. Take a seat. Would you like to have some chicken?
M: Thank you. This is my first time to come to a Chinese restaurant. I have always longed to have a taste of Chinese food.
W: Great. Chinese dishes are prepared carefully to make sure they are very good in colour, flavor and taste.
M: Wonderful. Could you tell me the different features of Chinese food?
W: Generally speaking, Cantonese food is a bit light; Shanghai food is rather oily; Hunan dishes are very spicy, having a strong and hot taste.
M: I like today's light food. It's the most delicious dinner I've ever had.
W: Well, I'm really glad to hear that. Mr. Simpson, would you like to try some Hunan dishes as well? They may also...
W: Hello, everyone. Today I'd like to deliver a speech about how to protect our hearing. According to the UN health agency, already 466 million people worldwide have suffered from hearing loss now and the figure is expected to nearly double to 900 million by 2050.What a huge number it is! Thus as young people, we should pay attention to the problem. I think the following steps can help us students deal with the problem. First, make sure you know when your surroundings are noisy. If you have to shout to be heard by someone near you, then your surroundings are noisy. You have to walk away from your surroundings. Second，if possible, turn down the music you are listening to until you feel comfortable. I think it is the best way to protect your ears against damage. Last, get your hearing checked regularly. Let's take action to reduce the risk of hearing loss. Thanks for your listening.
