M:What shall I do? I have nothing to write with.
W:No problem. I have two pencils.
W:What do you think this building is, Dick?
M:It looks like a hospital, right?
W:You’re right, my boy. You were born in this building ten years ago.
W:Do you mind if I have some time off?
W:Thursday and Friday of next week.
M:Well, I’d like to say yes, but it’s just impossible.
W:I want to ask the Johnsons to come to the party. Do you know their address?
M:No, but I’d like them to come. I think Tom can give you their address.
M:Excuse me, can you tell me when the next bus leaves for the train station?
W:It leaves in about ten minutes. Run quickly, and you may catch it.
M:Thank you. I’ll try my best.
W:May I help you?
M:Yes, I’d like to read some articles on the archaeology of Egypt.
W:Professor Scott’s class?
M:That’s right, but how did you know?
W:Let’s just say you are not the first person coming in asking for those articles.
M:I see. Well, since I haven’t read any of them yet, it doesn’t really matter which one you give me first.
W:I’m afraid I can’t give you any of them at the moment. They’ve all been checked out.
M:You’re kidding, all of them?
W:I’ve asked Professor Scott several times to bring in additional copies of the articles, but no sooner do I put them on the shelves than they are gone. See that girl in the red sweater? She’s been waiting for half an hour for these same articles to be returned.
M:And here I am out of my way to free up the whole afternoon to read them.
W:I’m sorry, but there is nothing I can do now. All I can suggest is that you come early tomorrow morning and try your luck again. We open at half past eight.
M:May I help you?
W:Yes, I am looking for a nice shirt for my son.
M:What colour do you prefer?
W:Blue. Boys get dirty easily, don’t they?
M:That’s right. But...what size would you like?
M:How about this one?
W:It looks very nice. How much does it cost?
W:Oh, that’s expensive.
M:How about this one, it’s only 17.66. We’ve sold a lot of these.
W:Yes, it’s really nice. I think I’ll take it.
W:Good afternoon. Dr. Anderson’s office.
M:Hello, my name is John Cramer, and I am hoping I can come in today to see the doctor.
W:Are you a patient of Dr. Anderson?
M:Well, no. I am in town at a conference. And the manager of the hotel where I am staying suggested that I call you.
W:What seems to be the problem?
M:Well, I’ve got ringing in my ears.
W:Are you in any pain or is there any hurt?
M:No hurt, just a slight earache.
W:The doctor will be busy at the hospital until tomorrow morning. So the earliest time you could see him would be tomorrow morning at ten.
M:I’ll come in then if it’s OK.
W:That will be fine. In the meantime you should try to take it easy.
W:Good morning! Can you tell me the time of morning flights to Paris, please?
M:Yes, certainly. There are daily flights at 7:50 and 11:05.
W:And when do they arrive in Paris?
M:The early flight arrives at 9:00 and the midmorning one at 12:15.
W:So the journey takes an hour and ten minutes.
M:Yes, that’s correct. But remember, you must be at the airport an hour before.
W:Of course. And in Paris is there a bus to the city center?
M:Yes, there are buses every half an hour and the journey takes about 40 minutes.
W:Fine. How much is an air ticket?
W:Right. I’d like to book five tickets on the early morning flight to Paris on Friday, June 10th.

When 16yearold John first entered high school four years ago, he worked very hard and always got very good grades. Besides, he was very active in sports. To get up very early every morning to practise running, he never took the school bus to school, he always ran there. He even won a silver medal in the 800meter race at the school sports meeting a year ago. As a reward, his parents bought him a computer. Something began to change. He stopped getting up early and never ran to school. His interest in sports suddenly disappeared. Sometimes he got up so late that he would miss the school bus and thus didn’t go to school. Soon his school work began to suffer. One day in the middle of the night his mother saw the light in John’s room. She went in and discovered the cause of John’s change. John had played the computer games late into the middle of the night ever since he had his computer. This had bad effects on his study and he suffered from lack of sleep. This must be stopped. The next day she had a serious talk with John. Instead of taking away his computer, she told him he was old enough to learn to have some control over himself. John was happy he had such a wonderful mother and promised to correct himself.
