W: What can I do for you, sir?
M: I’d like to change this money for Renminbi.
W: Hi, have you seen Bacon today, Cary?
M: Sorry, I haven’t. But John has.
M: It’s already 15 to 7. We’d better hurry up for the film.
W: Don’t worry; the film will be on in 15 minutes.
W: Have you heard the news?
M: What news?
W: Julie has won first prize in the diving competition.
M: Oh, that’s great.
M: I wish I could get used to the American custom of usingfirst names.
W: We usually call good friends by their first names.
W: Good afternoon, Dr Anderson’s office.
M: Hello, my name is John Cremer. I was hoping I could come in today to see the doctor.
W: Are you a patient of Doctor Anderson?
M: Well, no. I’m 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 got this ringing in my ears.
W: The doctor will be busy at the hospital until this evening. So the earliest you could see him would be tomorrow morning at ten.
M: I’ll come then if that’s OK.
M: Have you seen Rita lately?
W: Yes, I have. I saw her couple of days ago. She hasn’t been very well in the past 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’s a good idea for me to have a rest and 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 some other things to do now.
W: Look. Here’s a job that might interest you.
M: What is it? Are you sure? The lastjob interview you sent me off to was a disaster.
W: Well, look. It says they want a sales manager, and it looks like...it’s a big international company. That would be good. You might get to travel.
M: What kind of company is it, though?
W: Um, let’s see. Yes, it’s a clothing company that seems to bring in clothes from abroad. That’s unusual, isn’t it? What else? They say that the pay is really good. And oh, look! They give you a car to travel around in. Gosh! That’s not bad, is it?
M: Um, do theysay anything about experience?
W: Um, let’s see. No, they want someone young and energetic. Oh yes, they want a university graduate, so that’s OK...you’ve been to university. Now what else? Let’s see.
M: There must be some trick.
W: No, the only thing is that you have to travel, but then that’s what the company car’s for. Oh, and you have to be able to get on well with other people because it says you have to be good on a team.
M: Um, perhaps I’ll have a closer look at that one.
M: You’ve been in this country for a long time now. You must have noticed quite a few differences between living in Indonesia and living in England. What’s the most obvious thing that you’ve noticed?
W: In what way? Culturally or educationally?
M: Well, let’s begin with families.
W: Oh, families. Yes, there’re a lot of differences.
M: What sort of differences? Family size or customs?
W: Well, in Indonesia you have such a variety of types of people. Some of them are unclear families. Some of them have quite a lot of children depending on their religion.
M: Does it depend on where they live?
W: Yes, but then of course religion is also depending on their area.
M: So which groups tend to have the largest families?
W: Moslems usually have.
M: Sort of five or six or bigger than that?
W: Well, I left Indonesia a long time ago, but from the people that I know, I think four is the average, though there can be six.
My family and I lived in a flat until last spring. We weren’t happy there. The building was crowded and noisy, and the manager didn’t fix things. We decided to move. But most flats in this city were even worse, and the cost was higher. So we decided to look for a house to buy. Finally, my husband and I found a small house not far away from the city center. The problem was the house itself. It was ugly. It needed paint. The wallpaper was old; the carpet was in terrible condition, and it was orange. The door and roof needed repairs. The “garden” was full of dirt and a few half-dead plants. When our children first were in their new home, they burst into tears. I understood that. I wanted to cry myself. Well, the four of us made a decision to share the work and spend our summer vacation on the house. We cleaned up the yard and painted the house. We fixed the door and the roof. We removed the ugly wallpaper and carpet. We planted trees and grass. Day by day, this terrible little house became our home. We’re happy here. The children are quite satisfied—except for one thing. Now it’s their job to cut the grass every weekend.
