M: Can I borrow your car for a few hours this afternoon, Sue?
W: Sure, Bill. But I need it back by 5:00.
M: I'll have it back by 4:30.
M: Do you usually go to work by taxi?
W: Well, the company is so close to my home that I often go there on foot, except when I'm in a hurry.
W: Daddy, I have decided to give up science and go to business school.
M: Well, it is your choice, but I should warn you that not everyone with a business degree will be a successful manager.
W: Let's get something to drink and then go to see the elephants.
M: But the dolphin show starts in two minutes. I really want to see that. We can get a cup of tea afterwards.
W: Good idea.
W: Did you go to the bookstore, Andy?
M: Yes, but they didn't have all the things I wanted to buy.
W: Not even your superhero book?
M: I got that, but my football magazine won't arrive until Tuesday, so I'll buy one then.
M: Honey, can you get a babysitter for tonight?
W: Why do we do that?
M: Well, I thought we could go out for dinner and then go to a movie afterwards.
W: Good idea! I can ask Debbie if she could help us.
M: Well, do that, and then call me at the office if you have any luck.
W: Okay, but don't get your hopes up. It's hard to find a good babysitter these days.
M: Hello! This is Tom.
W: Hello Tom, this is Sarah. Are you going on the bus trip to Central Park tomorrow?
M: Yes. What's up?
W: Well, I wasn't at school yesterday and I need some information.
M: What do you want to know?
W: When does the bus leave?
M: 8:00. But we have to be at school by 7:45.
W: OK. When will we get to Central Park?
M: Well, it's about an hour's drive, so we'll be there at around 9:00. We'll have lunch at 11:30.
W: And when will we have to come back?
M: We will leave Central Park at 2:00 for Sunny Beach on the way back. We'll get back to school at around 6:00.
W: Sounds like an interesting day. See you tomorrow morning.
W: Hey, Tom, what are you doing here?
M: I come to put an advertisement in the newspaper. But what are you doing here, Susan?
W: I work here now.
M: Really? Why did you give up your teaching job in the English training center? Didn't you get a high salary?
W: My husband changed his job, and it took him a long time to get to the new office, so we moved. But it was a long distance from where I worked, so I decided to find a new job.
M: Oh, I see.
W: What kind of advertisement do you want to put in the newspaper?
M: I want to sell my house, as my wife wants me to move to England. She doesn't want to live in America.
W: In that case, it might be hard to see you again.
M: I guess so.
W: Hey, will you be busy next Saturday?
M: Probably, what's the matter?
W: I'm moving to a new apartment. It would be great if you could help me load my boxes into the car.
M: Well, I'm sorry that I can't make it. I have to play basketball that day.
W: Oh, come on! You can play basketball anytime!
M: I missed the last few games because I had too much work to do. If I miss it again, the other guys will be really mad. Can't you move on Sunday instead? I could help you then.
W: It has to be Saturday! The landlord already arranged for someone else to move in the next day. I can't believe you only care about yourself. You're supposed to be my friend!
M: OK, all right, I'll help you.
W: Oh, that's great. Thanks! Will you come at around 5:00 in the morning?
M: What? Why so early?
W: I borrow my friend's car, and she needs it for work. The only time I can use it is early in the morning. Don't worry. It will only take an hour or two!
M: Well, I guess I can play basketball later that day.
M: Next on the program, we're offering free tickets to go and see a film called Greenland. The film, which tells you all about the plants and animals in that wonderful place, has won a prize at the national film festival. It's well worth seeing.
The film can only be seen at a new cinema inside the Science Museum. It's showing this Sunday with performances every hour from midday onwards, with the last showing at 5 o'clock, two hours before the museum closes.
So why not take the whole family to the museum this Sunday? There are lots to do. Children will want to head straight down to the basement where the computers are kept. I promise you they'll come away with all sorts of exciting pictures they've created. Moving to the first floor, a working steam engine and a life-sized model of a spaceship are among the favorite exhibits.
Entrance to the museum is free on Sundays, but it would normally cost ＄3.25 to go and see the film. To get your free tickets, you should e-mail this program by midday on Friday. We've only got a limited number of tickets, so the earlier you e-mail us, the more likely you are to get one.
So go ahead with the writing after this song.
