W: What kind of dress are you looking for?
M: Since it's getting warmer this time of the year, I want something lightweight. What do you think would be the best?
M: I must say, Miss, the food was great and I've never had better service.
W: Well, thank you, sir. I'll pass your praise on to the cook and the manager. And thanks too for the tip.
W: I've to go to Washington this afternoon, but I'm too tired to drive and the bus is so uncomfortable.
M: No problem. I'll save you the cost of a taxi by dropping you off at the train station on my way to work.
W: I have been thinking about my uncle a lot these days.
M: Why not go over for a visit?
W: Good morning, can I help you?
M: Yes, I'd like to know something about the weather in Arizona in the coming week.
W: Well, it will be fairly hot and there will be much rain.
M: I see. Thanks very much for your help.
M: Welcome, Miss. May I help you?
W: I hope so. I want a lipstick.
M: Do you have any particular brand in mind?
W: I like Lyfel very much.
M: We have different shades of Lyfel lipstick. May I know what color you usually wear?
W: Pink. But today, I'm thinking of buying one in a dark shade. You know, I will be a teacher next month. I wish to look more serious.
M: Yes, I see. How do you like this one?
W: Not too bad. May I have a try?
M: Certainly, Miss.
W: Mmm… It's still too bright. Any darker shades?
M: Not from the Lyfel group, I'm afraid.
W: Well, any brand will do as long as I can get the right color.
M: How about this one, then? It has more transparent touch.
W: OK, that’the very thing I need.
M: It's so hard for me to learn English. Why is it so easy for you?
W: I didn't know you were having problems. Maybe it's easier for me because I already speak two languages. But also, I really work at it.
M: Well, I always do my homework and go to classes. What else do you think would help?
W: Well, you might try reading newspapers. And I always talk to Americans when I get a chance, though sometimes it’s hard.
M: But, how do you meet Americans? I only know other foreign students.
W: How about sitting next to an American at lunch, or have you ever thought of asking someone over to your house for dinner?
M:Those are good ideas. But I' m a little shy to speak English.
W: You won't learn if you don’t try and speak. If I were you, I'd talk to your English teacher. He might have some good ideas.
M: Hello, my name’s David Parker . I'm calling about the apartment advertised in the paper. Can you tell me something about it?

W: The management fee is included in the rent.But parking is fifty dollars a month.
M: Can I come and have a look at it today?
W: Yes, how about this afternoon?
M: sounds fine. See you then.
W: See you.
M: Are you looking forward to your trip to Canada, Susan?
W: I can’t wait to see Canada, Jason, but I' m scared stiff of the journey. My husband insists on flying, but I want to sail. Planes make me nervous.
M: There's nothing to be frightened of. How many planes fly across the Atlantic every day?
W: I've no idea. Hundreds, I suppose.
M: And how often do you hear of a crash? Once or twice a year?
W: Yes, but aero—planes fly so high and fast that once is enough.
M: There are more road accidents per day than air deaths per year. Air transport is really safe compared with road transport.
W: I still prefer to go by sea. Ships may not travel fast but as least you can relax. I'd love a trip on a luxury liner like the Queen Elizabeth II.
M: It's fine if you're a good sailor, but have you ever traveled far in a rough sea?
W: No. I've only been in a boat once. I sailed down the River Thames on a sightseeing tour, but in any case I'd rather be sea — sick than dead.
Hello, everyone. I'd like to tell you a story about Miss Richards.
Miss Richards was a teacher at a school for boys and girls. She taught chemistry and physics from the lowest to the highest classes in the school. Sometimes the new classes learned rapidly, but sometimes they were very slow, and then Miss Richards had to repeat things many times.
One year, the first class had been studying chemistry for several weeks when Miss Richards suddenly asked, "What is water? Who knows? Hands up."
There was silence for a few seconds, and Miss Richards felt sad but then one boy raised his hand.
"Yes, Dick?" said Miss Richards encouragingly. He was not one of the brightest students in the class, so she was glad this boy could answer.
"Water is a liquid which has no color until you wash your hands in it, then it turns black," the boy replied.
