M：Is the lady standing by the window your boss?
W：Oh，no.My boss is the young lady with straight，dark hair.
M：I want to make a reservation.Do you have any available here?
W：Yes. Moreover, you will get a 50-dollar gas card when you book a stay of 2 or more nights.
M：How do you find your new classmates?
W: They're very nice.I like them very much.But it's hard to know everybody.
W:Welcome，Peter.Give me your coat and hat.My husband is waiting for you in the living
W：How much is your overcoat?
M：The shop assistant wanted＄45.
W：That's too much.
M：I know，but I tried to make him bring down the price to＄25.
W：Good morning.I wonder if you can help.I've lost my coat.
M：Oh，where did you lose it，madam?
W：Ah，I left it on a bus yesterday morning.
M：Can you describe it?
W：Well，it's a long white overcoat.It's got a belt and a thick furry collar which can keep
my ears warm.It's a very nice coat actually.
M： I am afraid we haven't got anything like that，madam.Sorry.
M： This butter has a funny taste.Perhaps it isn't fresh.
W： When did you buy it?
M： It has been here for only one day.
W： Sometimes supermarkets keep food on the shelf too long.Give it to me and I'll take it
back.I'll ask them to change it for a new package.
M： Do you think they will?
W： Why not? Food is expensive these days.We can't afford to waste it.But if we eat it，we
might get ill.
M： Of course you are right.
M： Hello，Tracy.You must have had a happy time.Your look sells yourself.
W： Yeah.What troubled me most has gone with the wind.
M： Oh，I am interested in it.Come on，tell me about it.
W： My sister started a hobby a few days ago.She had never been interested in anything
M： Really?Tell me more.
W： She's been learning to paint watercolors.Besides，she is very serious and careful.
M： How interesting!What are her favorite subjects?
W： She likes painting landscapes best，but she also enjoys drawing still lives.
M： I envy her.I've tried to paint in the past，but I'm no good — I have no artistic talent.I just
like to watch others drawing.
W： Hi，John.What are you doing here?
M： I'm waiting for the bus.

W： How often does the bus run?
M： Every 10 minutes.I missed a No.1 bus 15 minutes ago，and the next one hasn't come yet!
May I borrow your bike，Rose?
W： Sorry，Mike borrowed it this morning.He went to see his uncle.
M： Oh，what shall I do then?
W： Why not take the No.7 bus?It also goes to the station.
W：Hello，I'm May Hunter.I'm at a travel conference and exhibition in Manchester，England.Manchester is a fantastic place!It's full of life and there are lots to see and to do in the evenings.Yesterday was my first day.I checked in at the hotel and then went to Chinatown，which has some great Chinese restaurants and things to see.I love that kind of atmosphere and the wonderful Chinese supermarkets and clothes shops.I want to go back there later to do some shopping.I will buy some presents for my boyfriend.Today I went to the conference to register and to set up my exhibition stand.I discussed the conference with the manager.I found that the stand of my company is in a good position，near the coffee shop.So I should get lots of people passing and buying my tours.Things are going well!
