1.Ted: Oh, I'm really sorry. Are you OK?

Ana: I'm fine. But I'm not very good at this.

Ted: Neither am I. Say, are you from South America?

Ana: Yes, I am originally. I was born in Argentina.

Ted: Did you grow up there?

Ana: Yes, I did, but my family moved here eight years ago when I was in high school.

Ted: And where did you learn the rollerblade?

Ana: Here in the park. This is only my second time.

Ted: Well, it's my first time. Can you give me some lessons?

Ana: Sure. Just follow me.

Ted: By the way, my name is Ted.

Ana: And I'm Ana. Nice to meet you.

2.Ted: Hey, hey! That was fun. Thank you for the lesson!

Ana: No problem. So, tell me a little about yourself. What do you do? Ted: I work in a travel agency.

Ana: Really! What do you do there?

Ted: I'm in charge of their computers.

Ana: Oh, so you're a computer specialist.

Ted: Well, sort of. Yeah, I guess so.

Ana: That's great. Then maybe you can give me some help with a computer course I'm taking.

Ted: Oh, sure...But only if you promise to give me some more rollerblading lessons.

Ana: It's a deal!

1.Interviewer: Where are you from originally, Yu Hong?

Yu Hong: I'm from China...from near Shanghai.

Interviewer: And when did you move here?

Yu Hong: I came here after I graduated from college. That was in 1992. Interviewer: And what do you do now?

Yu Hong: I'm a transportation engineer.

Interviewer: I see. So you 're an immigrant to the United States?

Yu Hong: Yes, that's right.

Interviewer: What are some of the difficulties of being an immigrant in the U.S.?

Yu Hong: Oh, That's not an easy question to answer. There are so many things really. I guess one of the biggest difficulties is that I don't have any relatives here. I mean, I have a lot of friends, but that's not the same thing. In China, on the holidays or the weekend, we visit relatives. It isn't the same here.

Interviewer: And what do you miss the most from home?

Yu Hong: Oh, that's easy, my mom's soup! She makes great soup. I really miss my mother's cooking.

1.A: Hey! Are these pictures of you when you were a kid?

B: Yeah! That’s me in front of my uncle’s beach house. When I was a kid, we used to spend two weeks there every summer.

A: Wow, I bet that was fun!

B: Yeah. We always had a great time. Every day we used to get up early and walk along the beach. I have a great shell collection. In fact, I think it’s still up in the attic!

A: Hey, I used to collect shells, too, when I was a kid. But my parents threw them out!

2.A: You know what I remember most about growing up?

B: What?

A: Visiting my grandparent’s house…you know, on holidays and stuff. They lived way out in the country, and my granddad had a horse named Blackie. He taught me how to ride. I just love that horse-and she loved me, too! I used to really enjoy spending time at my grandparent’s house. And every time I came back, Blackie remembered me.

B: Ah, memories!

(4)

1.A: Why is there never a bus when you want one?

B: Good question. There aren’t enough buses on this route.

A: Sometimes I feel like writing a letter to the paper.

B: Good idea. You should say that we need more subway lines, too.

A: Yeah. There should be more public transportation in general.

B: And fewer cars! There’s too much traffic.

A: Say, is that our bus coming?

B: Yes, it is. But look. It’s full!

A: Oh, no! Let’s go and get a cup of coffee. We can talk about this letter I’m going to write.

2.A: So you are really going to write a letter to the paper?

B: Sure. I’m going to say something about the buses. They’re too old. We need more modern buses…nice air-conditioned ones.

B: And they need to put more buses on the road.

A: Right. And there are too many cars downtown, and there isn’t enough parking.

B: That’s for sure. It’s impossible to find a parking space downtown these days.

A: I think they should ban private cars downtown between nine and five. B: Oh, you mean they shouldn’t allow any cars except taxis and buses during the regular workday. Hmm…that sounds like a really good idea.

1.Quite a number of things have been done to help solve traffic problems in Singapore. For example, motorists must buy a special pass if they want to drive into the downtown business district. They can go into the business

district only if they have the pass displayed on their windshield.

Another thing Singapore has done is to make it more difficult to buy cars. People have to apply for a certificate if they want to buy a car. And the number of certificates is limited. Not everyone can get one.

There is also a high tax on cars, so it costs three or four times as much to buy a car in Singapore as it does in, say, the United States or Canada.

The other thing Singapore has done is to build an excellent pubic transportation system. Their subway system is one of the best in the world. And there is also a very good taxi and bus system.

1.A: Excuse me. Could you tell me where the bank is?

B: There’s one upstairs, across from the duty-free shop.

A: Oh, thanks. Do you know what time it opens?

B: It should be open now. It opens at 8:00A.M.

A: Good. And can you tell me how often the buses leave for the city?

B: You need to check at the transportation counter. It’s right down the hall. A: OK. And just one more thing. Do you know where the nearest restroom is?

B: Right behind you, ma’am. See that sign?

A: Oh. Thanks a lot.

2.A: Excuse me. It’s me again. I’m sorry. I need some more information if you don’t mind.

B: Not at all.

A: Thanks. Do you know how much a taxi costs to the city?

B: Well, it depends on the traffic, of course. But it usually costs about forty dollars.

A: Forty dollars? I guess I’ll take the bus. That means I have almost an hour till the next one. Where could I find an inexpensive restaurant in the airport? Maybe a fast-food place?

B: Go upstairs and turn right. You’ll see the snack bar on your left.

A: Thanks very much. Have a nice day.

B: You, too.

(7)

1.A: What do you think?

B: Well, it has just as many bedrooms as the last apartment. And the living

room is huge.

C: But the bedrooms are too small. And there isn’t enough closet space for my clothes.

A: And it’s not as cheap as the last apartment we saw.

B: But that apartment was dark and dingy. And it was in a dangerous neighborhood.

A: Let’s see if the real estate agent has something else to show us.

2.A: Well, um,how do you like this space, then?

C: Oh, it’s much better than that other one. The thing I like best is the bedrooms. They are too huge!

B: Yes, they are nice and big.

C: And there are two bathrooms! I could have my own bathroom!

B: Yes, I guess you could.

C: The only problem is the color of the living room. I really don’t like those dark green walls.

A: Oh, I’m sure we can change the color if we want to.

3.A: Creative Rentals. Good morning.

B: Hello. I’m calling about the apartment you have for rent.

A: Yes. What can I tell you about it?

B: Where is it, exactly?

A: It’s on King Street, just off the freeway.

B: Oh, near the freeway. Can you hear the traffic?

A: Yes, I’m afraid you do hear some. But the apartment has lots of space. It has three bedrooms and a very large living room

B: I see. And is it in a new building?

A: Well, the building is about fifty years old.

B: Uh-huh. Well, I’ll think about it.

A: OK. Thanks for calling.

B: Thank you. Bye

(8)

1.A: Hello?

B: Hello. Is the apartment you’re advertising still available?

A: Yes, it is.

B: Can you tell me a little about it?

A: Well, it’s a perfect apartment for one person. It’s one room with a kitchen at one end.

B: I see. And is it far away from the subway?

A: There’s a subway station just down the street. Actually, the apartment is located right downtown, so you step out of the building and there are stores and restaurants everywhere. But it’s on a high floor, so you don’t hear any street or traffic noise.

B: It sounds like just the kind of place I’m looking for. I’d like to come see it, please.

A: Sure. Let me give you the address.

2.A:Town and city rentals.How can I help you?

B:Hi! Um,Is that apartment you advertised still available?

A:Yes, it is.

B:Oh, good. Um, listen,I,I can’t pay too much. So the low prise you asking is…is really good for me.

A:Great.

B;And how big is it?

A:It’s two rooms plus the kichen and bathroom.

B:Well, is it a safe place to live?

A:Well,I can tell you I’ve lived here for five years and I never heard about anybody having a problem.

B:Oh, that’s good. Uh, let see, oh yeah, does the apartment have a lot of windows?

A:Windows, yes, there are plenty of windows, but unfortunately,there is’n much light really. See, there’s another building right next to ours.

B:Oh,that’s OK. I’m never around in the day anyway. Do you think it’s alright if I come and look at it?

A:Anytime.When you wanna see it.

(9)

1.A: So where are you working now, Terry?

B: Oh, I’m still at the bank. I don’t like it, though.

A: That’s too bad. Why not?

B: Well, it’s boring, and it doesn’t pay very well.

A: I know what you mean. I don’t like my job either. I wish I could find a better job.

B: Actually, I don’t want to work at all anymore. I wish I had a lot of money so I could retire now.

A: Hmm, how old are you, Terry?

B: Uh, twenty-six.

2.A: So how are things going with you and Susie, Terry?

B: Oh, you didn’t know? She and I broke up a couple of months ago. We decided we needed a break from each other for a while. But I miss her a lot.

I wish we could get back together again.

A: I’m sure you will.

B: I really hope so. So what kind of job would you like to look for?

A: I’m not sure, but I’d love something that would involve travel. And I’d really like to move to another city. I’m sick of this place. I need to live somewhere more exciting.

B: I know what you mean. It sure can get boring around here at times.

(10)

1. A: Ugh! I feel awful. I really have to stop smoking.

B: So why don't you quit?

A: Well, if I quit, I might gain weight!

B: A lot of people do, but...

A: And if I gain weight, I won't be able to fit into any of clothes!

B: Well, you can always go on a diet.

A: Oh, no. I'm terrible at losing weight on diets. So if my clothes don't fit, I'll have to buy new ones. I'll have to get a part-time job, and...

B: Listen, it is hard to quit, but it's not that hard. Do you want to know how I did it?

2.A: Well, giving up smoking isn't really as hard as you think. I managed to do it, so it can't be that difficult. You should try a nicotine gum. You chew it just like regular chewing gum, and you don't feel like smoking.

B: Well, I guess it's worth a try.

3.Yeah, I really need a change. I’ve been doing the same things for over five years now, and I’m just not learning anything new. It’s the same routine every day, and I am really sick of sitting in front of a computer. I think I need to try something totally different. I want to be in a profession that involves meeting people.

4.I really need to join a club or sports team to give me something to do on weekends. I get really bored on the weekends, and if I joined a club. I’d probably get to meet people and make new friends.

5.Gosh, I really have to go on a diet. I’ve gained ten pounds since last year, and everyone tells me I look fat. And if I don’t lose weight now, I won’t be able to get into any of my summer clothes.

(11)

1.A: Hey, this sounds good — snails with garlic! Have you ever eaten snails? B: No, I haven’t

A: Oh, they’re delicious! I had them last time. Like to try some?

B: No, thanks. They sound strange.

C: Have you decided on an appetizer yet?

A: Yes. I’ll have the snails, please.

C: And you, sir?

B: I think I’ll have the fried brains.

A: Fried brains? Now that really sound strange!

2.A: Oh, good. Here comes the waitress now!

C: Here are your snails, madam. And for you, sir…the fried brains.

B: Thank you.

A: Mmm, these snails are delicious! How are the brains?

B: Well, I think they’re…yuck! Oh, sorry, I guess brains are pretty strange after all. Um, I think I’m going to order something else, if you don’t mind. A: Oh, sure. Go ahead.

B: Miss! Excuse me, miss!

C: Yes?

B: Uh, I really don’t care for this appetizer. Could you bring me something else?

C: Yes, of course. What would you like instead?

A: Try the snails.

B: No, I don’t think so. I’ll tell you what. Just forget an appetizer for me, and bring me a nice, juicy hamburger…medium rare…with French fries and a large soda.

3.Have you finished with this

A: Have you finished with this?

B: No, I’m still drinking it. Thanks.

4.A: Did you order this?

B: Yes, that’s mine. Mmm, it looks great and smells delicious!

5.A: Don’t you like it?

B: I haven’t tasted it yet. I’m waiting for the waitress to bring me a fork.

6.A: Did you enjoy it?

B: Well, it was a little tough. I think it was cooked for too long.

7.A: How is it?

B: Great. Just the way I like it: black and strong.

8.A: Your turn or mine?

B: It’s my treat this time. You paid last time. Remember?

(12)

1.A: I’m so excited! We have two weeks off! What are you going to do? B: I’m not sure. I guess I’ll just stay home. Maybe I’ll catch up on my reading. What about you? Any plans?

A: Well, my parents have rented a condominium in Florida. I’m going to take long walks along the beach every day and do lots of swimming.

B: Sounds great!

A: Say, why don’t you come with us? We have plenty of room.

B: Do you mean it? I’d love to!

2.A: Have you planned anything for the summer, Brenda?

B: Yeah. I’m going to work the first month and save some money. Then I’m going to go down to Mexico for six weeks to stay with my sister. She’s working in Guadalajara. She says it’s really interesting there, so I want to go and see what to go and see what it’s like. It will also give me a chance to practice my Spanish. I’m really looking forward to it.

3.A: So, what are you planning to do for your vacation, Judy?

B: Oh, I’m doing something really exotic this year. You know, I went to Hawaii last year, and just stayed on the beach for two weeks. This year, I’m going white-water rafting!

A: Ooh, that sounds great. But what is it, exactly?

B: Oh, well, you know, it’s in Colorado. They have all these trips down the rapids. The water gets really rough, but I think it’ll be really exciting. Oh, I’m doing some rock climbing, too.

A: And you call that a vacation?

(13)

1.A: Hey, Mom. I want to backpack around Europe this summer. What do you think?

B: Backpack around Europe? That sounds dangerous! You shouldn’t go by yourself. You ought to go with someone.

A: Yes, I’ve thought of that.

B: And you’d better talk to your father first.

A: I already did. He thinks it’s a great idea. He wants to come with me!

2.A: What should people do to make their visit to New York City safe and pleasant?

B: I think the biggest mistake many people make is trying to do too much in a short time. There’s so much to see and do that you need to have a plan. It’s best to start planning before you get here, so you have information about hotels, restaurants, sightseeing, and so on. Visitors can use our Web site to get the information they need to start planning before they come here; or they can phone or fax us.

Interviewer: How safe is New York City for tourists? Spokesperson: New York is a much safer place than many people think. In fact, it’s the safest it’s been in thirty years! Interviewer: Oh, that’s good to hear!

Spokesperson: Yes, but that doesn’t mean people don’t have to be careful; tourists in New York ought to be careful, just like in any big city in the world. For students, I would say travel in groups. If you get lost, it’s easier as a group

to find your way. You really shouldn’t go off on your own

if you can find someone to go with you. Another thing to r emember is: Don’t be afraid to ask for directions, even if y our English isn’t perfect. People often stop me on the street to ask for directions, and that’s not only foreign visitors.
