W: Do you like the apartment? If you do, you can sign the contract today.
M: I really like the apartment, but I can't afford the rent. So I'd just keep looking around.
W: I have to be absent from class this Thursday and I need to borrow your note.
M: Sorry, but I won't go to class the day after tomorrow, either. I'll take part in a very important contest.
W: Tom, would you like to go to the cinema with me today? There is a good movie and I really want to watch it.
M: Sorry, but I have to prepare for an exam today.
M: I will move this Sunday. But I can not move the piano by myself. Do you think John will help me move it?
W: Don't count on him. He became ill last week and is still very weak. Why not ask Mike for help?He'll get back from his trip with his little brother Sam tomorrow.
W: Look, it's already 8:00. Henry said he would be here by 7:00. Why is he so late?
M: Don't be surprised. We have all got used to it. He's never on time.
W: I heard you did something great yesterday afternoon. What exactly did you do?
M: Well, I helped an old woman who suddenly lost her breath. I used what I had learned in a first aid course. Then I called 911 and she was taken to the hospital. Luckily, she is fine now.
W: When did you take the first aid course?
M: Last year, I read an article about the importance of attending a first aid course. So I enrolled myself in one.
W: Well, I think I should take a first aid course, too.
M: Yes. Actually everyone should take a first aid course. It's really helpful.
M: I almost caused an accident while I was driving home last night. I still can't help shaking when I think of it.
W: What exactly happened?
M: Well, an old man was on his hands and knees in the middle of the road. I didn't see him until I got close to him. Luckily, I stopped the car in time.
W: What was the old man doing there?
M: He was looking for a toy that he bought for his grandson.
W: You must have been very angry.
M: Yes. I want to shout at him. But I controlled my anger because he was really old. Instead, I looked for the toy with him.
W: Well, did you find it?
M: Yes. I gave it to him and told him never to be in the middle of the road at night again. It's really dangerous.
W: Yes. By the way, how did you do in the exam?
M: I got an A plus.
M: What are you doing, Lisa?
W: I'm preparing for my oral report on an outstanding woman in history.
M: Whom have you chosen to report on? Is it Marie Curie?I think she is really an amazing woman in the science field. You can also report on Helen Keller. She is really inspiring.
W: Actually I've decided to report on Martha Gellhorn.
M: I haven't heard about her before. Is she famous in history?
W: Yes. She was the first female war journalist and she made great achievements in the field. She was very brave. She followed the war wherever she could reach it. But I chose her mainly because she was a peace lover.
M: Right. You love peace. So when will you give the oral report?Is it tomorrow?
W: No. It is the day after tomorrow,next Tuesday. I still have enough time to prepare for it.
M: Jane,did you rent an apartment while you were studying in Paris?
W: I planned to rent an apartment. But it was too costly for me. So I found a host family instead.
M: How was your host family?
W: They are very nice people. But they have very different culture. It took me quite some time to get used to the life with them.
M: What impressed you most?
W: Well, how they eat impressed me most. They always place their bread on the table, not on their plates. And they are also very particular about using forks and knives while eating, and this goes for anything.
M: What do you mean "this goes for anything"?
W: They use forks and knives for anything while they are eating.
M: Really?You mean they even use them for pizza?
W: Yes. One night,my host mom made pizza. And they ate it with forks and knives.
M: How did you eat it?
W: I ate with my hand just as I did in America. They found it very funny.
