W: Look! They are lining up at Gate 10.
M: Hurry up. It's time to check in for our train.
W: Do you know why I choose the café?
M: You like the music here.
W: No. It's a good place to talk.
W: What time is it?
M: It's 8:30.
W: Your watch is 10 minutes slow. There're only 5 minutes left for the speech. We're going to be late.
M: Let's go for it right now.
W: Hello, is that Dad?
M: Yes, Jenny. How have you been these days?
W: I'm fine. Happy Father's Day! I miss you a lot.
M: Thank you so much. I miss you too. So does your mom.
W: They really did a good job.
W: The singing group used to be very popular.
M: I can't believe they could have played so well.
W: Oh dear！ My weight has gone up again.
M: I'm not surprised. You've been eating too much.
W: I wish I could lose weight. I have been to the hospital.
M: Were you given any advice?
W: Yeah, the doctor asked me to change my diet by cutting down meat.
M: What's more, you had better do more exercise.
W: You're right.
W: How did you meet Bill?
M: I met him through a computer bulletin board on the network.
W: Oh, really? Which bulletin board?
M: It was the one I used down at the local coffee house called the San Francisco Net. It has been around since 2016.
W: I've heard about that, but I've never tried it.
M: You ought to. Fifty cents buys you an hour of computer time. A "Chat Session" links you with people in other cafés. We can make new friends by that means.
W: But I don't like to talk on the network with strangers.
M: You can do that. A private room lets you talk alone.
W: OK. I'll try it.
W: Hello， Milton Hotel. Can I help you?
M: I want a reservation. Can I have it now?
W: Of course. What kind of taste do you like for your dinner?
M: I prefer Chinese dishes.
W: Would you like to sit in a smoking section, a non-smoking section or an open one?
M: A non-smoking section.
W: I'm awfully sorry, but we haven't got the section left now. Would you like to wait for a while？M: Not at all. An open section will do too.
W: OK. See you then.
W: Do you have any plan for the weekend, Tom?
M: Yeah, Laura. I'm going for a ride around Qinghai Lake on Saturday, but it depends on the weather.
W: According to the forecast, it'll be cloudy the day after tomorrow, good for a ride.
M: Great! Do you go riding often?
W: Absolutely. I go as much as I can, because we can really get in touch with nature. It would be nice to get out of the city. Do you want any company?
M: Sure, but it will be a 30-mile ride. Have you been riding so long before?
W: Yeah, I go a lot too. I even saw a bear and some monkeys on my last ride. My friend Mike and I rode more than 30 miles to a very wild part of the national forest.
M: Wow! You must have been pretty far away from the city. Shall we invite him to go along?
W: Of course. I'll ask him.
M: Thanks. We will have a good time this weekend.
W: Good morning, everyone. It's my great honor to share how I learn to swim.
Just think, a year ago, at 54, I couldn't swim. I was terrified at the thought of going into the water. Now, 12 months on, I have just completed my 200 meters. It feels like a dream, and it is all thanks to Everyday Swim.
I think I am a perfect example of being never too late to learn to swim. For years I had gone on holiday with my son Andrew and my husband David, and had to sit on the side of a pool watching them swimming in the water. Then I decided to learn to swim. I searched the Internet for swimming lessons and found about Everyday Swim at the local Hadleigh pool. When I turned up for the first lesson, I felt a bit sick and worried, but this soon passed. The instructor Rachel really put me at ease, and so did the other people in the class. As the lessons progressed, I learned to become more confident in the water. When the 10 lessons for ＄10 finished at the pool, I continued to register for the lessons. In fact, from initially being scared of water, I am now becoming a regular swimmer and collecting some certificates along the way.
