M:Hello, Anne. This is Larry at the office. Is Fred at home?
W:No, Larry. He’s in class now.He’ll be home for lunch, though.
M: What do you think of the opera?
W:It’s very good. The actors and actresses are all very good. Don’t you think so?
M:Yes. The acting is excellent and so is the music.
W:Yes. I like it very much.
W:My father has retired recently. He just can’t bear staying at home.
M:I am most upset to hear it. He can do s omething. Many old people are living a rich and full life.
W:Bob, why are you looking so depressed?
M:Mum, I’m not a good boy. I broke father’s glass just now.
W:Oh, son. Would it be a good idea to tell him the truth?
M:Yeah, but I’m afraid he’ll scold me.
W:I didn’t think much of that performance.
M:No. It wasn’t too hot. What a pity, they’re a good group after all.
W:I couldn’t hear the lead singer at all.
M:Me neither. The guitars and drums were too bad.
M:What’s the matter, Anne? Do you have a problem?
W:Yes, I have a chance to get another job and I don’t know what to do.
M:If it’s a better job than your present one, take it.That’s my advice.
W:It isn’t as easy as that. I like the job I have now very much. The people in my office are very nice and my work is very interesting.
M:What about the pay? Will you get more money?
W:Yes, the pay is better.If I accept the job, I’ll get more money right away. What should I do? I have to let them know my choice today.
M:Have you been to exhibitions in your spare time?
W:Yes, a lot of times. I like exhibitions—exhibitions about famous people: dancers,actors,you know?
M:Mm, and what about a folk concert? Have you ever been to one of them?
W:No. I don’t like folk music very much.
M:What about the opera?

W：Yes, I have.
M:Hi.You’re in the pink today. You must have had a nice new year holiday.
W：Yeah, I went to Qingdao and just came back yesterday.
M：Really? Did you go to see the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center? I thought you were just shooting the breeze when you said you would go. How is it?
W：It’s really amazing. During the 2007 Qingdao International Sailing Games, around 5,000 people came out to watch the competition every day along the seawall.
M:Newspapers say the design received high praise fr om the International Olympic Committee. The venue will be used for the 2008 Olympic Games.
W：Fortunately, I have been there already. It’s a pity you’re not going to see it.
M：Although I know my chances of getting an Olympic sailing ticket are slim, I’ll keep trying anyway. Otherwise, I’m sure you’ll nag me to death telling me about your experience there.
M:Oh, I’m exhausted.
W：Why are you so tired? What did you do today?
M：There were so many things to do.
W：Did you do all those things all yourself?

W：Take some time off.
M：Go on holiday?
W：To relax yourself. How about having a trip this weekend?
M：And to have a picnic?
