W: The sports meeting starts at 8:00.
M: In order to get a good seat, we must arrive there fifteen minutes in advance.
M: Hi, Alice. Look at my new camera.
W: Where did you get it?
M: My uncle Robert sent it to me last week.
W: I’ve just locked my key in my room. Now what should I do?
M: I can’t believe it. You’re always so careless. Anyhow, let’s calm down and try to figure things out.
M: Why are you studying English?
W: I work at the front desk in a big hotel here. We have a lot of guests from America. So I want to improve my listening and speaking.
W: You’re late again!
M: I hope you could understand why I’m late.
W: Do I have to remind you how many times you’ve said that?
M: Excuse me, I’m trying to do some work. I’m afraid your children are making a lot of noise. Don’t they ever go to sleep?
W: I’m sorry. They are noisy. But you know it’s difficult to keep boys quiet.
M: I couldn’t work and I couldn’t sleep at night. And I was woken by the noise they made early this morning.
W: I’m terribly sorry. You know they never listen to me. They’re only afraid of their father. He’s away on business, but he will be back tomorrow.
M: I hope he can do something about it.
M: What a terrible story! A couple was sailing their boat from Hawaii to Mexico. While they were crossing the Pacific, their boat hit a whale and sank!
W: Is that true? What happened to the whale?
M: It doesn’t say. Oh, and here’s another one. A guy in Los Angeles was robbing a bank. But as he was escaping, he got caught in the revolving door.
W: I guess it was his first bank robbery!
M: Yeah. Oh, and listen to this. Some guy got locked out of his house, so he tried to get in through the chimney.
W: Don’t tell me! He got stuck in the chimney!
M: Exactly. And he was still trying to get out two days later when the police rescued him.
M: We’ve just moved into a house.
W: Really? Congratulations!
M: Thank you, and we want to buy a new television set.
W: What kind of television do you want to buy?
M: A colour TV set, of course, but I’m not sure about the size. Maybe we should buy a big one. If we buy a small one, we might have to change it in a few years’ time for a bigger one. That would be a waste of money. What’s your opinion?
W: I don’t think it’s necessary to buy a very big one.
M: Any reason?
W: Yes. As I know, your sitting room isn’t very big. If you put in a very big television, it will be bad for your eyes, and a smaller TV set can still pick up good programmes.
M: Mm, that’s quite true. I’ll think about it.
W: You’d better make a quick decision because the price may go up soon.
M: Hi, Jane. It’s nice to see you again. I heard that you went to the US during the vacation.
W: Yes. I went to New York to attend a summer course in English.
