M: How was Mr Smith’s talk on local people and wildlife?
W: Oh, it was great.
M：When do you want the TV fixed?
W：The sooner, the better.
M: Cindy, have you finished your term paper?
W: Finally I have done nothing else this week but type it.
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.
M: Hi, is this where I can get information on tours?
W: Yes, I can help you with that. What type of tour are you thinking about? There are some great city tours that are one-day or two-day overnight.
M: I think I’m interested in a hiking trip to the mountains. I’m big on nature. Are the overnight trips expensive?
W: Not at all. They are very reasonably priced, starting at96 and up.
M: Do I need to book ahead?
W: Yes, this company requires that you book 48 hours ahead.
M: Great. Can I book that here at the hotel tour desk, or do I call the company directly?
W: I can book that for you. Just stop by when you’ve made a decision and I’ll take care of it for you.
M: That’s great. Thanks a lot for your help.
W: That was a wonderful picture. The acting was wonderful, wasn’t it?
M: Yes. The story is unique, and the plot is cleverly designed.
W: But I could understand only about half of the English spoken.
M: I have trouble, too, especially when the actors speak so rapidly.
W: Is the picture shown at Royal pretty new?
M: Yes, it’s the latest release. It’s a local picture.
W: How do you like the film?
M: The ending and the plot are both good. I was amused by the dialogue.
M：What a beautiful new skirt you’re wearing!
W：You really think so?
M：Of course. When did you buy it?
W：It was not bought.
M：Ah? A gift from your parents?
W：No. I made it myself.
M：Really? I can’t believe it.
W：I’m not kidding. Yesterday I planned to go to the bookstore with my mother. On the way back home, we went to Hongtu Department Store and Baijia Supermarket. At last we came to a small cloth store, where a lot of clothes and cloth were being sold. I happened to see this kind of cloth. The colors and designs struck me as suitable for a skirt. And I bought it.
M：You’re a girl of excellent judgment.
M: Maria. What can you tell us aboutyour plans for the future?
W: Well, I’ve been considering taking a year out after I graduate. You know, maybe travel around the world and see some different countries.
M: What do you hope to gain from traveling?
W: I’ve always been interested in seeing different places, and experiencing different cultures, so it will give me a chance to experience these things at first hand rather than read about them in a book. But I also think that the experience I gain will help me find a good job when I come back.
M: Can you explain why you think traveling will help you find a job?
W: Well, the way I see it, a modern business environment is changing. Therefore, to be successful in one’s life, it is important to be able to accept changes.
M: What do you mean?
W: I mean that you should be willing to change your attitudes, and even working habits to suit the ever changing environment. And if you’ve spent some time traveling, it means that you have to get used to different ideas and ways of doing things, as well as simpler things, such as food and climate.
M: Er... It sounds reasonable.
W: I also believe that traveling will teach me to be independent, as well as to value other people.
M: Why do you believe traveling will help you to value other people?
W: As you know, when you’re traveling you can’t get help from your family, so you have to depend on your friends, or even turn to unknown people.
M: Oh, I see. You’re right, Maria.
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.
