W: Would you like a coffee or a juice, sir?
M: Thank you very much, but I prefer some tea.
M: Why do you look so upset?
W: Our next door neighbor's house was broken into last night. Some jewelry was stolen.
M: Don't worry. I have put your jewelry in a safe place.
W: Matt, it seems like you have a little fever, but you don't have to go to the hospital. I have called your mom. You need to go home and rest.
M: Thank you, Miss Jenny. So should I stay in this office or go back to my classroom?
M: My son doesn't like to practice math questions.
W: He is only 5 years old. Instead of doing questions, maybe you can try a different method.
M: For example...
W: When you mark his height on the wall, or you count candles on a birthday cake, you actually help your child learn math.
M: Why does the check always take a long time? They are too slow, and ask too many questions.
W: Be patient. It is better than if they finish it quickly, because then I can't trust their results.
M: Would you like to attend the free English Leadership and Speech class starting from next month?
W: That sounds interesting! How do I sign up? Do I need to buy books?
M: All books and study materials are provided. Just get a pen and take notes if you feel you need to.
W: How great is that! I will sign up right now.
M: Today is too early. They haven't started yet. The sign-up period is from Sept.1 to Sept.15, and the class will start on Oct.1.
W: I will attend Mary's wedding this weekend. What do you think about this blue dress?
M: It is too tight for you. The green one is better.
W: No. The green one is too formal. It feels like it's for attending a business meeting. How about this red one?
M: That is too fashionable, not appropriate. Why don't you borrow one from Lia? She has lots of dresses.
W: Her house is too far. The shopping center is much closer, and it is better to check there this afternoon.
W: I'm thinking of taking a year off when I finish my exams. I don't want to go straight to university.
M: I wouldn't do that if I were you. It could be a big mistake. If you get a good job, for example, you might get so used to the money, and you won't want to go back to being a poor student.
W: Actually that's not what I want to do. I want to travel to China or South America.
M: How can you afford it?
W: I thought I'd work as a volunteer. Some organizers pay your travel and you work for nothing. That would be great.
M: If I were you, I'd rather get my course over and then go traveling after that. Well, if you change your mind, let me know. We can start planning a trip abroad for three years together! I've always fancied a trip to China.
M: Excuse me, are you the manager of the agency?
W: Our manager is out of town today. I am the secretary. I am in charge today.
M: I need to tell you something about our tour guide, Jacob. Everyone was mad at him.
W: I am here to listen. Please have a seat.
M: Well, Jacob has good knowledge about the sightseeing spots. However, only the knowledge is not enough.
W: I agree. Did he force travelers to pay tips?
M: No, but he only gave us 1 hour in the Summer Palace, and then spent almost 3 hours in the shopping center! We came here for the beautiful view, not for shopping.
W: That is not acceptable! To be honest, I can't believe Jacob did that.
M: Yes, it is really not funny. I even saw Jacob get money from the shop owner.
W: I am sorry about that. I will absolutely tell our manager and talk to Jacob.
As a one-year-old baby, Amanda was taken to a medical center in the USA, suffering from burns from the hot steam. During her recovery, a young nurse took care of her. The pictures of them together were published in the hospital's annual magazine in the 1970s, which Amanda has been keeping throughout her life, hoping to find this woman and thank her.
For many years, she even went back to the hospital, Amanda had been unsuccessful to find the nurse, since her name couldn't be found in the magazine. So she turned to social media and posted her story on her social media page. The response came almost immediately — within a day — that this young nurse was Susan Berger.
It turned out that Susan had just turned 21 in these photos, and the child in her arms was one of her first patients. Susan remembered this one-year-old little girl and said, "I can't forget this baby since she was very peaceful. Usually, when babies come out of surgery they are sleeping or crying terribly, but Amanda was just so calm and trusting."
Two weeks later they met in the same medical center, where their story began 38 years ago.Now, their story is in the local newspaper and the title is "Never Too Late to Say Thank You".
