W: You should have a look at the new MP4 player over there. It's a new design and it comes in four colors — light green, dark blue, black and brown.
M: Blue is popular with boys, but I would prefer a green one.
M: It's said that there are only a few seats left at the concert tonight.
W: Really? I was under the impression that the tickets had sold out a long time ago.
M: How do you like your tea, with milk or sugar?
W: Not too much milk and no sugar, please.
W: Will you take part in the football match on Saturday?
M: That's the day after tomorrow. I'm afraid not. I have to set aside three days to prepare for the math exam next week.
M: Did you see that movie last night? I thought it was fantastic.
W: Really? I didn't think there was anything special about it.
M: How do you like this brown dress? It looks great on you.
W: I think it's a bit too heavy. Since it's getting warmer at this time of the 〖JP3year, I want something light. What other kinds of material do you have?〖JP
M: We have silk and cotton dresses. A cotton dress is suitable in spring. We have many different kinds. What color would you like? I think yellow and green would be good choices for you.
W: I would like the white one.
M: Hello, what seems to be the problem?
W: Well, I'm not feeling very well at the moment. I'm preparing for the exams and I've been staying up late studying these days. This morning I got up very early to do some work, and I fell on the floor. I came around after a few seconds.
M: Mm, have you had any other signs of sickness?
W: I've been pretty nervous, and my eyes hurt sometimes.
M: Well, it sounds as if you've probably been overdoing your studying and you're too tired. I don't think there's anything to worry about, and I think you should take it easy for a while and try to get plenty of sleep.
W: Yes, I haven't been getting much sleep lately.
M: What do you like to do in your spare time?
W: I like to be with people. Last weekend I went to a Japanese friend's place. What about you?
M: I like spending time in my room, reading, writing and thinking.
W: Oh, I just remembered something important. You said you like writing, right? Could you write an article about what you saw and heard in London? You can write whatever you like.
M: You really want to read my article?
W: Not me, an editor of a magazine wants to read it.
M: Who is the editor?
W: My father. He recently discovered that you just got back from studying English in England. He would like to hear your views on British culture.
M: Thank you and your father. I will try my best. But, you know, my English is poor...
W: Don't worry. My father will help you correct it.
W: How's school going, Tom?
M: Just fine. I was finally admitted to graduate school.
W: Great! Are you going to do a doctor's degree?
M: Yes, I'm going to do a doctorate in chemistry.
W: That sounds like a difficult field.
M: It is interesting to me.
W: You've got a degree in nuclear physics, haven't you?
M: Just a master's degree, actually. I think chemistry is a much better field for me. I've always preferred chemistry to physics.
W: What do you plan to do after you finish?
M: I haven't decided yet. I am thinking of going into medical research.
W: Well, you've got some years of hard study ahead of you.
M: That's right. What about you, Linda? I heard you would soon finish your bachelor's degree in literature.
W: That's right. I've always dreamed of being an excellent writer.
W: Let's hear about Mr. Brown's comment on the movie.
M: Hello, everyone! I think Al Gore's. An Inconvenient Truth is on the whole a good film. It is an excellent film for teachers to show their classes to explain global warming. It explains the facts very well, explains away the objections that people have been hearing about from the media, and is also pretty funny at times. The film basically consists of a tour of Al Gore's climate change speeches around the world. It starts off with a few diagrams that many of you have probably seen already. This film is really for the general public who do not know all of this, and it is also for those who might have heard something about global warming here and there but want to see exactly how all of the facts fit together. I think it is a good film, but it is not perfect. The problems come in the short but noticeable periods when the film tries to be a biography of Al Gore at the same time. I was watching this to find out about global warming, not to find out what Al Gore thought about losing his election. I imagine that these are the bits that teachers will have to skip when they show this to their classes, since they don't really add anything to the film. I would have respected Al Gore a bit more if he hadn't tried to make this a film about himself as well.
