M: What time do you usually get home from work?
W: Oh, about 6:30, but if there’s a lot of traffic, it will be around 7:30. Last night, I got home very late. It was almost 8:30.
M: That’s too bad. By the way, did you watch that special TV program last night?
W: No, I didn’t have the time, and I forgot to record it. You know, I had to prepare for a lecture.
W: Hi, Sam. I didn’t know you exercised at this gym. Do you come here every day?
M: Well, I’ve been busy with my project, but usually, I exercise here every two days. How about you?
W: I come here once a week, mostly Friday or Saturday.
M: Why don’t we meet at the park this Friday after work? We can exercise together at the gym, and then go for a drink or a movie.
W: Sounds good.
W: Good morning. Can I help you?
M: This is Mr. Horst speaking. Could I speak to Mr. Chester, ple ase?
W: One moment, please. I’m sorry, but Mr. Chester is on the other line. Would you like to leave a message?
M: Could you ask Mr. Chester to call me back?
W: Of course. What is your name again?
M: My name is Richard Horst.
W: Could you please spell your last name?
M: That’s H for Harry, O for Oliver, R for Robert, S for sugar, and T for Tommy.
W: Thank you for calling, and goodbye.
W: Honey, it’s me!
M: Where are you?
W: At the station. I missed my train, so I’m going to be late.
M: Oh, that’s too bad. Will you get back in time to pick up the kids?
W: I don’t think so. Can you get them?
M: No problem.
W: How was your day?
M: Well, I worked on my paper for a few hours, and then I got sleepy. So I slept for a while.
W: Wow, you’re so lucky you work at home. I can’t sleep at the office, you know.
M: But I also did the dishes. You can’t do those things at the office.
W: Well, that’s true.
M: See you around 6:30?
W: I hope so. See you.
M: What can I do for you, madam?
W: Yes. My husband and I were thinking of buying something. May I have a look at that T-shirt?
M: Certainly. You have very good taste, madam. It really suits you.
W: Thanks, but it’s not for me. It’s for my friend. How much is it?
M: Well, madam, you’re very lucky because we have a special offer on for this week only. That T-shirt is normally sixty dollars, but we are offering a ten percent discount.
W: Oh, dear. That’s still 54 dollars.
M: I see. Well, madam, just look at the quality.
W: It’s very nice, but I think your prices seem very high. A T-shirt like this is much cheaper on the Internet.
M: But not of this quality, madam.
W: Well, I’m in a hurry, so why not 48?
M: 48? At that price, I’m losing money. How about 50?
W: 50? Well…oh, look! There’s a button missing
M: Really? OK, let’s make it 48.
W: Thank you. I’ll take it.
W: Hi, Tim. Have you been here long?
M: Hi. I arrived on Sunday. How about you?
W: I got here a few days ago, on Saturday…oh, no, wait a minute…sorry, Friday, not Saturday.
M: But we didn’t have to be here until today.
W: Yes, I know, but I wanted to get my things moved into my room and take a look around. So, did you choose English as your major in the end?
M: No. I changed my mind and chose history instead. And you are doing biology, if I remember correctly.
M: How much reading have you got? I was g iven an amazingly long list of books to read. See?
W: Well, mine isn’t as long as yours. But I don’t know how to get through them all. Do I have to make notes while reading?
M: Well, you’d better skim the books first to see what’s important and what isn’t.
W: But what if you miss something?
M: You don’t mean you’re going to read every word, do you?
