M: I'm not feeling so well.
W: Get some rest and take these three times a day and you should feel better. If you don't, come back and see me.
M: I met Sam on the street today.
W: Really? Did he say something about his sister?
M: Yes. She ought to be leaving New York very soon, because her husband has taken a job in Los Angeles.
M: Are you sure you've corrected all the mistakes in the paper?
W: Perhaps I'd better read it through again.
M: Does this bill belong to you?
W: Oh thanks, I've just lost five pounds.
M: I'm glad that I've found the owner, otherwise I would have to go to the Lost and Found.
M: We'd better hurry. I think that's our flight.
W: Have I got time to get a newspaper?
M: Well, I don't think we have time. Look---
W: All right, well, you take that bag, and I'll take this one.
M: Do you want your television repaired?
W: Yes, but not by the man you suggested.
M: Why not? The repairmen are very good and the charges are so reasonable.
W: That may be, but I couldn't find the place.
M: But you couldn't miss it . I told you it is at the first right after the railroad bridge.
W: I took that. I went to the end of the road. There is no such place.
M: Wait a minute. Perhaps it is the second right. Yes, I think it is.
W: I should have known, whenever someone says "You can't miss it",you can be sure that you won't find it.
W: Hello, Roger? This is Ann.
M: Hi, Ann. How have you been? And how's your new apartment working out?
W: Well, that's what I'm calling about. You see, I've decided to look for a new place.
M: Oh, what's the problem with your place now? I thought you liked the apartment.
W: I do, but it's a little far from the campus. Do you think you could help?
M: All right. So, what kind of place are you looking for?
W: Well, I'd like to share an apartment with one or two roommates within walking distance of school.
M: Okay, how much do you want to spend on rent?
W: Oh, somewhere under $ 200 a month.
M: Hmm. And anything else?
W: Yeah, I need a parking space.
M: Well, I know there's an apartment nearby. I'll drop by there on my way to class today.
W: Hey, thanks a lot.
M: No problem.
M: Is it true that you don't swim at all now?
W: I'm afraid so, I'm too old.
M: But you are only twenty.
W: That's too old for a swimmer. If I swam in an international competition now, I wouldn't win. So I'd rather not swim at all.
M: But don't you enjoy swimming?
W: I used to, when I was small. But if you enter for big competitions you have to work very hard. I used to get up at 6 to go to the pool. I had to train before school, after school and on weekends. I swam thirty-five miles every week!
M: But you were so famous at fifteen. And look at all those cups.
W: It's true that I did have some wonderful memories. The Olympics were very exciting. But I missed some important things too. While other girls were playing, I was swimming.
W: Please turn off the lights, Harry.
M: Why? What's the matter? I want to read the paper.
W: If we turn on too many lights, all the electricity in the house will go off.
M: Now who told you that?
W: Our new neighbor Mr. Smith.
M: Mr. Smith? When did he come to our home?
W: I had to go to his home and ask for help today.
M: What was wrong?
W: When I turned on the washing machine, all the lights went out.
M: Well, did he take care of it for you?
W: Yes, but he said it would take a lot more work to do a really good job.
M: What does he mean by a really good job?
W: He said we need new electric wires throughout the house and a lot of other things.
M: Did he tell you how much it would cost?
W: Yes, about a thousand dollars.
M: A thousand dollars? That's a lot of money. And just when we need to get some work done on our car, too.
It was in the afternoon. When I entered the classroom, I was surprised to see a video camera. Our class teacher was operating the camera, and my classmates were all talking among themselves slowly. Most of us had never been in front of a video camera before, so we were quite nervous. As for of myself, I had once faced one at home, my uncle was shooting when we were celebrating my sister's birthday. But this was completely different. We had to talk about our articles as if we were reading news on TV. The funny thing was that every time I tried to face the camera and talk about my article, I forgot the article and couldn't resist looking down at it. It was a completely different experience for me, thanks to our class teacher.
