M: Thirty-six divided by five. No, it doesn’t come out right.
W: No problem. We can have one car full with an extra person in it.
M: Would you like a cup of tea?
W: Only if it’s not too much trouble.
M: Do you like it with milk and sugar?
W: Not too much milk and no sugar, please.
W: Hi, Ben, I heard your birthday is coming up.
M: Yeah, just two days ahead.
W: Has your brother bought you anything?
M: Well, not yet, but he never forgets.
W: Excuse me, when will the 8:10 bus arrive?
M: It’s been delayed two hours because a bridge fell down.
W: Nobody told me that Bill was in the hospital.
M: Sorry. I meant to give you a call when I found out but it slipped my mind.
M: May I help you?
W: Yes, my nephew is graduating from college next week and I’d like to get him a nice gift.
M: What price of gift are you interested in? We’ll need to know that before we begin looking.
W: I usually spend about twenty dollars on a gift. Do you have anything nice for that price?
M: How about a pen and a pencil? We could carve his name on them.
W: No, my brother gave him that for his birthday last year.
M: Well, then, would he enjoy a chess set?
W: No, he doesn’t go in much for chess, but he is quite athletic.
M: Then you could get him a handball set.
W: That’s a good idea. I’ll take it.
M: Hello, 152—3852.
W: Hello, is Anna there?
M: No, I’m sorry. Anna is out.

W: Oh! I’m sorry...er...well, could you, please, leave Anna a message for me?
M: Sure. What is it?
W: Well, I’m supposed to be meeting Anna for lunch at my home. Would you ask her to see if she has my French dictionary? And if she does, tell her to bring it along.
M: All right. And where are you calling from?
W: 154, Rose Avenue. I’m Anna’s friend, Pat.
M: Thank you for calling, Pat.
W: Fred, how is your knee today? Is it still giving you trouble?
M: No, it feels a lot better today.
W: Great. But why don’t you take it easy today? Stop doing running.
M: OK. Do you have any news about Michigan and what we can expect in Saturday’s game?
W: Yes, I have some films showing Michigan in the last three games. They’re in my office. If you want to see them after practice, you can.
M: Oh, that would be great. I’d like to see what we are up against.
W: Michigan has a strong team. You’re in for a tough team. They are one of the top football teams in the country now since they beat Lowa last weekend. Come to think of it, why don’t you go ahead and check out the game films right now? And just rest your knee this afternoon. I want you to be well in 3 days.
M: All right. I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon for full practice.
W: OK. Here’s the key to my office. The films are on my desk, and the projector is all set up.
W：Jim, thank goodness, you’ve arrived! The class presentation started half an hour ago, and I was just beginning to panic.
M: I’m sorry I’m late, Ellen. I was out of luck this morning. I didn’t think I was going to make it here at all.
W: Why are you so late? Our whole presentation depends on those graphs you’re holding.

Hello! My name’s Art. I’m 74 years old and I live in a retirement community with my wife Kate. I retired about twelve years ago from the bicycle business. I was in the bicycle business for thirty-five years. Twenty of the thirty-five years I ran my own business. After I decided to sell my business, I became an advisor. I worked as an advisor for five years and then I retired. The retirement community I live in requires one to be forty-eight years or older. In the community I engage in many activities, oil painting, watercolor painting, stained glass projects. My major activity, however, is golf. Weather permitting, I play every day. We have a golf course in the community, and since I played more often than I used to before I retired, my game has improved.
