M: I have to go to Professor Green's to discuss my paper.But I'd see a film with you when I come back.
W: I'm going to the cinema right now with Jane，and I don't think you could make it.
W: Do you think we'll have a nice summer this year？
M: Due to global warming，it could be hotter than ever!
W: Why did you leave your previous job？The pay wasn't good？
M: Well，actually the job wasn't a challenge any more.It was the same every day，so there was nothing new to learn.
W: Professor，I'm having problems making this water look real.
M: Give me your brush for a moment.Watch me add just a few shadows here.
W: Front Desk. Can I help you?
M: Oh, may I ask for a wake-up call, please?
W: Yes, sir, what time do you want?
W: Hello, Globe Hotel, can I help you?
M: Yes,I have a reservation from the 18th to the 21st July for a double room with bath and balcony.I would like to change it, from the 18th to the 23rd July.
W: And your name please?
W: I'll check it for you.I'm sorry, the room is not available on the 23rd, but the 22nd is available. Will that be OK?
M: That's OK.I'll check out before noon on the 23rd.
M: I was just looking at some of your oil paintings. You've got quite a collection, haven't you?
W: Mm, yes. Dutch mostly. Eighteenth century.
M: And I love the way you've done the fireplace. Was that here when you moved in?
W: Yes, it's the original.
M: And what beautiful chairs. French, aren't they?
W: Italian, actually.I bought them in Milan.
M: Oh, really? And wow! Look at that view. You can see the whole city from here.
W: Well, Mr. Smith, here you are again.I notice that this is your fourth visit this month. You are taking the medicine I offered you last time, aren't you?
M: Yes, I take it every morning, but I need something else. First of all,I have a headache. My head has been aching for almost a week. And I'm losing weight. And my food tastes funny. As soon as I start to eat,I lose my appetite.
W: Mr. Smith,I want you to tell me whether you are trying to get exercise.
M: Yes,I remember your exact words"It's important to exercise, and that includes walking".And I try.Some days I forget, but when I exercise,I like it.
W: Well, Mr. Smith, it seems that it's time for you to have a complete physical examination.
M: So Tania, welcome.
W: Thank you. It's great to be here.
M: Tania, you've just finished your first film, where you acted Angie,a 16-year-old girl. May I have your age, please?
W: I'm one year older than Angie.
M: You've been to the opening night. What was it like seeing yourself on screen?
W: Well, before I went to the opening I thought it might be scary, but it wasn't in the end.I could remember how many times I'd had to do the scene, how much of me had gone into it.I certainly wasn't bored with watching the film, even though I knew it so well.
M: And were there any similarities between you and Angie?
W: Yeah, well, it would be nice to think so! She often doesn't follow normal rules, and I'm a lot like that.She doesn't really care what people think about her though; however I do. Also she's much more confident than me.
M: How did you play the role so well?
W: I tried to act as Angie at any time. That's how I really got into the role.
M: OK, Tania, let's take a break and then we continue talking about your new film.
W: Hello, everyone.I'd like to tell you about my working experience. After I left my school,I decided to go abroad to see the world.I only intended staying for six months but in the end I stayed two years. First of all I worked for a family.I looked after their three children — all under the age of ten so I was kept very busy! After six months I was ready for a change. Then I applied for a job in a hotel as a receptionist. That way I could still practise my languages. Then the hotel closed down. But the manager offered me a job in a bakery and I worked there for almost a year. At the beginning it was really hard. But once I got used to that, it was great, because I'd finish work by 2 o'clock in the afternoon and the rest of the time was my own. But my parents thought I ought to come home and get a proper job.I suppose they were right. So that's why I applied for a job with the Bank International in their foreign department and so I continued to practise my languages.
