M: Do you know where I can find Stella? I have been looking for her in the library and in her office.
W: Goodness! She thought she had to meet you in the conference room.
M: Todd got the highest grade point in the biology class.
W: No wonder! He’s at the library every day.
W: Have you found anything wrong with my stomach?
M: Not yet. I’m still examining. I’ll let you know the result next week.
W: Do I need to know how to use a computer?
M: You do not need computer experience to take the test. The test instructions are easy to understand.
W: How much time did you have for writing the paper?
M: We were given three hours, but I finished in less than half the time.
W: You people are certainly good.
W: Good morning. Can I help you?
M: Good morning. I’d like to join the school volunteer project, but I’m not sure what I should do.
W: OK, don’t worry. Let me help you. What do you like doing?
M: I love writing stories.
W: Well, you must be good at telling stories. Am I right?
M: Yes, of course.
W: Then why not help us look after children on weekends?
M: That’s a good idea. I can tell them stories. I am sure children will love my stories and me.
W: I agree with you. Can you tell me your name and telephone number?
M: Oh, sorry. I nearly forgot. I am Jim Green. My telephone number is 8832765.
W: OK, I’ll call you when it is ready.
M: Thanks a lot.
W: I’d like to reserve two tickets on Saturday, the 10th.

W: Well, how about on the 11th?
M: Yes, madam, we do have tickets for that show.

W: Okay. Can I use my credit card?
M: Sure. Could you give me your name, the name of your card, the card number, please?
W: Uh, just a second. I have to get my credit card out.
M: Amy, so, how are you doing?
W: Oh, hi, Sam. School is so crazy these days, and when I’m not at school, I’m at work.
M: Hey, listen. I’m getting together with Sara and Paul tonight, and a few of other friends are going to join us. And we’re going out to eat and then watch a movie. Why not come with us?

I have just received a letter from my brother, Jim. He is in Australia. He has been there for six months. Jim is an engineer. He is working for a big firm and he has already visited a great number of different places there. He has just bought an Australian car and has gone to Alice Spring, a small town in the center of Australia. He will soon visit Darwin. From there, he will fly to Perth. My brother has never been abroad before, so he is finding this trip very exciting.
