W: May I help you?
M: Yes, I'd like to try on some sports jackets. I prefer
something like the one I'm wearing.
M: Can I come to see you at 10:30, professor Bruce?
W: I'm sorry, but I'm meeting my students then. Why not come
20 minutes later?

M: Look, Julie, John's really sorry about it.
W: I'm sorry about it, too.
M: Will you just let me tell you his side of the story?
W: I'm not interested. He promised to meet me at the restaurant,
but he didn't come. I don't want to see him again.
M: But, Julie, his car had broken down.
W: So? There is a telephone in the restaurant.
M: But that's the point. He tried to phone, but he couldn't get
W: I don't believe he tried.
M: Yes, he did. He came to my flat. Do you believe me?
W: Yes, I'll talk to him. Listen, I'm going to be late for work,

W: Your class do very well at the sports meeting. By the way,
what sport are you taking part in?
W: Good luck to you.

composer. How about you?
M: I like all kinds of music, but jazz is my favourite and my
wife is fond of rock music.
M: A little bit, but my wife is much better than me. She can
also play the violin.
W: Really? I hope I can hear her play some day.
M: Why not come to our house this weekend? We are going to
have a party.
W: I'd love to.
M: Morning, Sue. Did you enjoy your holiday in the country?
W: Yes, thanks. We had a great time. And some friends went
M: Where did you stay? In a hotel?
W: No. We camped in the mountains, near Snowdon. We
cooked all our meals over an open fire.
M: Sounds wonderful. Was the weather good?
W: The sun shone nearly every day and it didn't rain at all.
M: Did you like the people there?
W: Yes, they were great. We met some farmers and had tea in their houses.
M: When did you get back? Last night?
W: No. This morning. You'll think we were mad. We got up at 4:30, left at 5 and arrived here at 9. I’m so tired. What about you? Did you have a good weekend?
M: Yes, but I didn't do much. I stayed at home. The weather was terrible.
Now it's my turn to say something about what I'm going to do in the future. I'm going to work in Africa next year. I will teach English in a village school in Zimbabwe. That's in the southern part of Africa, where the old people and women received little education but they want their children to be well educated. There I won't get paid very much but I don't mind. I'm not interested in being rich. I just want to do something that will help people who are not as lucky as me. When I come home again, I'm going to get a job as a nurse or a teacher. Whatever I do, I want a job so I can work with children.
