W：So what’s happened?

M：And some people have had to move out of their homes. But the government’s efforts have made them feel better.
W：How long have you been driving?
M：Actually I began driving when I was thirteen. But I got a license two years later.
M: When will the school term begin?
W: Henry told me it was September 12, but this notice says it is September 20. Henry was wrong.
W: How did your parents like the play they attended last weekend?
M: My mother thought the language was terrible, but my father liked it.
M: Do you think the weather will be all right for the Spring Festival?
W: Yes, if we’re lucky. But I think it’ll be very cold anyway.
M: Quite possibly.
W: Have you got any plans for the festival? It’s likely I’ll just stay home and help my mother with the cooking.
M: Well, who knows. I might do anything. You know I always do things as they happen.

M: Excuse me, I’m a reporter from China Daily. I’d like to know what types of newspaper people often read. Would you mind answering a few questions?
W: No, not at all.
M: Can you tell me where you’re from, please?
W: Er, I was born in Japan and grew up in Italy.
M: Oh, sounds interesting. Are you used to living here, in New York City?
W: Very much so. I’ve been working in a college for three years.
M: Woo, a college teacher. And when do you normally read newspapers?
W: Well, I’m busy during the day, so usually after 8 o’clock at night.
M: Which sections do you prefer?
W: I’m mainly interested in the shopping. Other than that, I also like the news.
W: What part of the paper are you reading?
M: The travel section.
W: Are you thinking about our vacation already?
M: Yes, it’s not so far away. I’ve been looking at these advertisements.
W: Why don’t we go to the same place we went last year?
M: I won’t stay at that hotel again. I have a better idea for this year. Look at this advertisement. This looks like a wonderful vacation to me.
W: “Three weeks.” “Ten exciting ports.” “Use the ship as a hotel.” How much does it cost?
M: The price isn’t given.
W: It must be expensive if they don’t give the price in the paper. And besides, I’d rather stay in one place.
M: I don’t want to sit on the same beach and eat the same food and look at the same walls every day for three or four weeks.
W: You know the doctor said you shouldn’t try to do too much.
M: He didn’t say that I had to sit in the same chair all day long.
W: Hi, Bob. Haven’t seen you for ages. What’s happened to you?
M: I have been in hospital.
W: Oh, sorry to hear that. But for what?
M: Er, I had a car accident three weeks ago.
W: Really? So you were injured and treated in the hospital?
M: Yes. But luckily, only my left arm was broken. And I can move it now.
W: But how did it happen?
M: I was driving to work on Broad Street and crashed into a pole.
W: You were driving too fast, I suppose.
M: Yes, and I regret it.
W: Remember the lesson. I hope you will return to work soon.
M: Thanks a lot.
W: That’s very exciting, of course, Mr. Jones. When did you see the UFO?
M: It was last Thursday. It must have been ten past six because I was just passing the post office after walking my dog. Every evening we take the same walk at the same time.
W: Did you hear any noise?
M: Well, I did hear a noise. At first I thought it was a plane. But it couldn’t be possible, because it was standing still at first, and it had no wings or engines or anything of that sort.
W: But didn’t it move at all?
M: No, it suddenly rose up and flew away up into the clouds with a rush of hot air.
W: How big was it?
M: It was huge. You know how small planes look when they are in the air. Well, this object looked about the size of a large plane, even at that height. So if it were on the ground it would be very large.
W: Certainly, Mr. Jones. You have been flying for so many years.
M: And you could imagine the engine power that would be needed to keep a thing that size in the air. It’s really hard to believe or imagine.
W: Certainly it is. Thank you, Mr. Jones. Today’s interview will appear on City Evening tomorrow.
How does television affect our lives? It can be helpful to those who carefully choose the programs that they watch and harmful to those who watch it too much. In China, many people worry that children and young people are watching too much television. A survey of 300 youngsters in Shanghai last year showed that, on average, they spent half of their free time, that is two and a half hours, watching television. And two-thirds of an hour—reading stories. Another survey of school-age children in Wuhan found that half of them said they read very little. During the Barcelona Olympic Games, tens of millions of Chinese viewers stayed up late to watch the opening ceremonies and other programs. And television is quickly taking the place of printed material as the major source of news for most Chinese. A recent survey in Beijing found that 63% of those surveyed got their news from television through CCTV and other TV stations.
