W: Unbelievable! If I remember correctly, you just started to learn to drive a month ago. Now you have got your license and drive so well.
M: Er. I find driving is not as difficult as I expected.
W: Excuse me, sir? Is the subway from the airport to downtown available now?
M: It is still under construction. If you're not in a hurry, there will be a bus in 10 minutes.
W: Oh, thanks! My husband is waiting for me. I think I'd better take a cab there.
M: What time does the book store close?
W: It usually closes at 9:30.
M: What time is it now?
W: It's a quarter to nine. You still get time to go there.
M: Is your leg OK? Shall I drive you to the doctor's?
W: Oh, no. Just give me a few minutes and I will be fine, I suppose.
M: Are you sure? Maybe I could get you some painkillers.
W: Thanks. I don't have any of them here. Can you go to the drug store and buy some for me?
W: I told you to quit smoking, Tom, didn't I?
M: Yes, you did. But I really can't control myself now.
W: It's not only bad for you, but also for me and our baby.
M: Sorry, I will try my best this time.
W: Honey, I am supposed to pick Alex up after his piano lesson this afternoon, but my boss needs me in the office. Can you...?
M: Sure do! Where does he take his lesson? The one near the post office?
W: No, that's where he has his chess lesson. Just drive past the theater and you will find it next to a bank.
M: Oh, I know. I will cook us some steak tonight. Will you be home at 7?
W: I am not sure when I can finish my work, so I can't eat at home tonight. I'll order some takeout food then.
M: Carol, I heard you come from a big city. Is that so?
W: Yeah! I guess. It's pretty big and really a fun place to go. It has some cool art galleries, wonderful theaters and a huge amusement park.
M: Wow! A huge amusement park! There must be so many people every day.
W: That's right. Every time I go there with my friends, it takes us a whole day.
M: And what's your city like? What does it look like?
W: Well, it's very crowded but clean. Of course, it's pretty too. Around the city are many hills, and there are a lot of trees and a lake right in the center of the city.
M: Good morning, Amanda. You are up early this morning.
W: Oh, Hi, George, the fact is that I didn't sleep at all last night. My friend Mary came by and slept over.
M: Did you girls have fun all night? That's crazy!
W: No, she came to me for some advice. And she kept talking about the future relationship between her and her boyfriend. Every time I was about to fall asleep, she would wake me up.
M: Poor you! But why?
W: She told me her boyfriend was 15 years younger than her, and you know, people judge. However, she loves him so much that she can't decide what to do after his proposal.
M: That's really a tough one. Did you give her any suggestion?
W: Actually no matter what I said, she wouldn't listen. This back-and-forth thing drove me crazy.
M: Where is she now? Do you need any breakfast? I can buy you some.
W: Thanks a lot! She is sound asleep in my bed. Can you just put the breakfast on my desk? I am going to take a nap in my car before the boss comes.
M: Will you attend any evening class at the community center this year, Joan?
W: Maybe. Is the tennis club running this year? I enjoyed that.
M: Yes, but it is on Mondays now, at 7 sharp.
W: That's a shame. I have to work late at the library on Mondays. What's on Tuesdays? Is it still badminton club?
M: No, that's on Wednesdays this year. On Tuesdays it's table tennis.
W: Will you go?
M: To table tennis? No, but I may go to badminton. I have grammar classes all afternoon on Wednesdays. My mind would be exhausted after those lessons, so I will enjoy hitting the badminton so hard.
W: Then maybe it's not fit for me. Is there anything on Thursdays?
M: Mr. Smith is running his old club again, just like last year.
W: Oh, yeah! Mr. Smith's Thursday book reading club! I enjoy that. We had some interesting discussions.
M: Yes, I'm hoping to do that this year too. And on Fridays the singing club will be upstairs and the dancing club will be downstairs.
W: You know I tried to dance before, and found out that was something I would never do again.
M: Well, I guess I will meet you on Thursday evenings then!
W: Yes! See you then!
Hello, everyone! To ensure everyone can enjoy Golden Sun Park safely, the park has established rules and regulations for all visitors.
First of all, alcohol and smoking are not permitted in the park. Anyone who breaks this rule will be faced with a ＄10 fine. This includes the use of electronic cigarettes.
Besides, cycling is not permitted on pedestrian paths except the marked shared paths at 96th Street. At crosswalks, slow down, yield to pedestrians, and then proceed cautiously. Obey all traffic laws, such as traffic signals, stop signs, and the 20 mph speed limit.
In addition, dogs are allowed in most sections of the park whenever it is open to the public. But all dogs must be on leashes, for there are so many children and pedestrians running in the park. It's dangerous to keep the dog off the leash.
Finally, barbecuing is allowed only on these days, but not the entire holiday weekend: Memorial Day, Labor Day, and 4th of July (whatever day of the week it falls on).
For more detail, please come to the administration office. We've gathered information to answer your frequently-asked questions.
