W:I hear you have changed your job. How do you feel about your new job?
M: Better than the job I used to have. The most important thing is that doing the present job, I can use what I learned from the old job.
W：Could you have my dress delivered?
M: Of course, madam. May I have your address, please?
W:7345 King Street.
M：Sue, that report on my desk has to be finished today. But I’m sick and can’t come to the office.
W:I see the report, Bill. I’ll finish it for you.
M：Mary, you didn’t do well in today’s maths test. What was the matter?
W:I was in a hurry, and I didn’t check my answers.
M:That’s too bad you didn’t think of it before.
W:Sorry, Mr. Smith. If only I had been more careful!
W:Sorry, Mr Johnson. I forgot to bring my homework.
M:Did you do it?
W:Yes, but I left in a hurry this morning.
M:Do remember to bring it here tomorrow.
W：Good morning Ken! Why are you so early today?
M:Morning, Julia!Well, I was doing my homework, and I have finished it now. You see, the maths homework is difficult for me.
W:Is it? I’m afraid you stayed up again last night for the football match.
M:Yes. That’s why I am doing my homework here in the classroom. If my mother had seen I was doing my homework at home, she would have known everything.
W:Your mother is really strict with you.
M:Strict? I think she is hard on me.
W:Then how did you watch the football match last night?
M:I bought a secondhand small TV set with my pocket money. And I put it in my bedroom.
W:Didn’t your mother hear you?
M:No, she was too tired after the whole day’s work.
W:Did your favorite team win last night?
M：So, two men grabbed your bag as you came out of the bank and ran off down the street. Is that correct?
W:Yes. One of them stopped me and asked me the time. The other one grabbed my bag.
M:Would you please describe them?
W:I’m not sure. Because it happened so quickly.
M:The one who asked you the time, what did he look like?
W:Well, let me see. He was short and he had brown hair and a little moustache. He was very thin, about 20 years old. And he was wearing a black jacket.
M:Did you notice the colour of his eyes?
W:Yes. They were brown.
M:Good. And what about the other man?
W:I’m sorry, I didn’t get a good look at him. He was quite tall. I remember he had a beard. He was bald and he appeared much older than the short one.
M:Thank you. We may call you tomorrow.
M：Have you seen Elizabeth lately?
W:Yes, I have. I saw her a couple of weeks ago. She hasn’t been very well in the last couple of weeks.
M:Has she seen a doctor since she’s been ill?
W:Yes, she has. The doctor told her to take it easy for a while, but she hasn’t been following his advice. She’s as busy as usual.
M:Do you think it useful for me to ask her to have a rest while I go to see her? Or shall we go together?
W:I think you can go yourself and show your concern to her since she sometimes would take your advice. So it’s unnecessary for me to go with you. What’s more, I’ve got my hands full tomorrow.
W:Now, let me show you around our school. This is our computer lab.
M:Wow! So many computers! How many computers do you have?
W:We have 80 in this lab and we have another 40 in another lab. Besides all these, we have one for each teacher.
M:Then, how many teachers do you have?
W:88. The teachers are using the computers as aids in their classes.
M:Really? Can we go into the classes to have a look?
W:Yes. This is an English class. The teacher is explaining new words with the help of the computer.
M:How nice! It is easier to explain the words with the help of the computer.
W:And it saves a lot of time.
Good morning, everybody. My topic for today is “Early Money”. I’m going to tell you something about money used in the early days. To be honest, we know little about how early people came to use money, but we do know some things which have been used as money. In early times, in some European countries, salt was used as money. In some parts of Asia, tea was used for money. The American Indians used nuts and other things. Perhaps the most common money of all was animal of some kind. In some places today, cows are still used as a kind of money. So you see, things highly valued by everybody may serve as money.
The Chinese were the first people to use coins as money. Oh, sorry, you don’t know the word? Well, it is spelled C-O-I-N. Here are some coins of the past. You can come over and have a look.
