W: Those shoes look really nice. I'm sure our daughter will like them.
M: Could we buy them next time, dear? We don't have enough money with us.
M: The Yangtze River is the longest river in the world, right?
W: Oh, no, it's the third longest river in the world, but it is the longest river in China.
M: Excuse me, Cherry. May I borrow your ruler now?
W: Sorry, Cooper. I've lent it to John.
M: That's all right. I'll ask Catherine for one.
W: Hello, sir. What is the fastest way to get to Encino?
M: Well, you can take Route 99 west until Pomona, and then go 35 miles until you hit Sun Village. Then drive another 10 miles north through Ragsdale until you see Encino.
W: Look, it's already 8 o'clock. Jim said he'd be here by 7:00.
M: Yes, but you know what the traffic is like this time of the evening.
W: He said he's trying not to be late. Why does he always do this?
W: Excuse me. Is this the gate for FM Flight 810?
M: Yes, departing for Paris.
W: Good. Will the plane take off right away?
M: It leaves at 6:40, so there is still 40 minutes to go.
W: Will it arrive in Paris on time?
M: I hope so. The flight takes about 4 hours.
W: Is the airport far away from downtown Paris?
M: Yes. One hour's drive at least.
M: Hey, listen. I need the rent. I can't wait any more.
W: Yeah. I'm sorry I haven't given it to you yet.
M: Why don't you go two blocks over to the Mission Inn Hotel? It's half what you pay here. Listen, I need you to be out of here in the morning.
W: Am I supposed to be out of here tomorrow?
M: I've got painters coming in.
W: All right. Look. I need more time.
W: I'll paint it myself. All right, but I just... I have got to have some more time... my son lives here.
M: All right. One week. And you paint the room.
M: Good afternoon, madam. You just called us, didn't you? This is Officer Belford.
W: Yes, I did.
M: Please tell me a little more information about it. Just the facts. What time did it happen?
W: I dare say it must be sometime between 12:00 and 1:30 because I left home at 12:00 and just got back at 1:30.
M: What did they get?
W: Well, I know now I'm missing some jewelry, money and the computer.
M: OK. Well, you are making a list. By the way, did you have your belongings marked?
W: Marked? Not the jewelry, but my husband put his name on the computer.
M: By the way, where is your husband?
W: He isn't in. He's on a trip to Canada. I haven't contacted him about the robbery yet.
M: I see. Where did you put your jewelry?
W: I put it in the fridge. But all my good jewelry is in the safe deposit box in the bank.
M: OK, I'll be in touch with you as soon as we find any trace.
M: Hi, Cathy. Can you describe the dancing courses available to our schoolmates?
W: OK.I will offer three courses — a waltz course, a cha-cha course, and a tango course.
M: Is each course with the same number of lessons?
W: Oh, the cha-cha is relatively more difficult than the waltz and the tango. so I think it needs six lessons. For the other courses, four lessons for each course will be enough.
M: All right. What about the dates and time of the courses?
W: We hired the professional dancing teacher June to teach the cha-cha on Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00.The waltz will be taught by me and Rose will teach the tango courses. It seems that I'm free every Tuesday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30.Rose will hold her classes every Monday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00.
M: OK, but will all these courses be held in the School Hall?
W: Mine will, but Rose decided to book the Music Room. And June prefers to hold her classes in the covered playground.
M: Thank you, Cathy. I think I'll try your class! I will be there on time.
W: OK, great. Goodbye.
W: Now let me say something about the trip to Hamilton Arts Center. We have tickets for the center's concert and two theaters. Those with tickets for the concert will hear piano music and those with tickets for the main theater will see Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, while people going to the smaller theater will see The Wild Duck by Ibsen.
You can spend time looking around the center before the show starts. On the first floor you can see paintings from a children's competition. On the second floor there's a show of South American photos. Charlie's coffee shop on the third floor serves coffee， sandwiches and cakes. The center also has a bookshop on the first floor and you can buy books and postcards there.
The two plays will finish around 11 o'clock. Maybe the concert will finish earlier. The center will be closed at 11:30. Remember that everyone should leave there by a quarter past eleven. Thank you for listening.
