W: Let’s see. That comes to 1,565. Cash or credit card, Sir?
M: Cash, but I left my wallet at home. Please keep it for me. I’ll be right back.
M: Is there anything more to do before we leave?
W: I’ve closed all the windows and packed our clothes. You can call a taxi as I lock the suitcase.
W: I want to have a vacation in Spain in August, but I haven’t made up my mind yet. It’s so expensive.
M: Well, summer is the peak season. Why not go later, like in autumn?
W: I always like arguing and I think I’d enjoy doing it in a debate.
M: Well, Debate Club is not my cup of tea. I think I’ll choose the Book Club since I like to do research in the library.
M: Hey, Casey. I didn’t see you at yesterday’s company evening party.W: Yeah, my sister fell off from a ladder when she was cleaning the house, and I had to take her to the hospital.
W: Mr Isaiah?
M: Yes, Ms Weiss?
W: Yes. Come on in, Mr Isaiah. So, you’ll be working at the university?
M: Right. 7 I’m going to be teaching a psychology course in Stanford.
W: I see. 6 Let’s take a look at this apartment, shall we? Here’s the living room, next to the kitchen as you can see. And we’ve just bought a new TV. Oh, please keep the volume down if you watch it. And we do want you to try your best to keep this place neat and tidy.
M: Sure, Ms Weiss.
M: Hello, Robert speaking.
W: Hi, it’s Emma. 8 It’s about our appointment on Wednesday morning. I’m afraid I can’t make it now.
M: Oh, why?
W: I’m sorry. There is a change in my business partner’s plan. And Wednesday is the only day she will be able to see me.
M: That’s okay. We can arrange another date for our appointment.
W: I could manage sometime on Thursday. How about you?
M: Sorry, I got an important meeting all day that day. 9 What about Friday?
W: I’ll go to an exhibition in the morning, but 9 I could come to your office after that.
M: Okay. Look forward to seeing you then. Bye!
M: I’m going to miss my chance! When is this train going to leave?
W: What chance? Are you a businessman?
M: Not exactly. It’s actually a little bit embarrassing. Yesterday I received a mysterious e-mail and it says that I could win a great reward if I complete a mission.
W: What mission?
M: I don’t know either. It just says I need to get to the city hall of Phoenix before 12:00 o’clock at noon today and 10 make a phone call there to get more instructions.
W: 11 That sounds very strange, almost like a detective story.
M: Oh, 12 the train is leaving! Excuse me, I must go now.
W: I have read a very touching story in newspaper today.
M: What is it?
W: 13 It’s about a European girl, called Natasha. 14 She has been in the lead in a running competition, but just near the finishing line she stumbled and 15 her leg was injured.
M: What a pity.
W: Yeah. Competitors passed her from behind in succession till only her weak and lonely figure remained on the track. Doctors came and offered to take her away. But she refused.
W: With the only strength left in her, she managed to get up and held out to the end point with drops of blood along her trail.
W: Her persistence really moved me a lot. She really should be honored for her action.
M: Well, in my opinion, 16 her action’s just pointless when her failure is determined. She should have just got the medical help as soon as possible instead of believing in some so-called “honor”.
M: The village of Foston, North Yorkshire, UK, now has a post office thanks to the pupils at the village primary school. 17 The village primary school has opened a post office in a converted outdoor toilet, a small brick building, with all the pupils at the school trained to help. Teaching assistant Laura Glass said that before they have this post office, 18 the nearest one’s five miles away, meaning it’s very tricky to post a letter as the village has a lot of elderly people. “We got a lot of help from the government and the villagers in converting it. 19 We then realized that by getting pupils to run it we could help teach them important skills at the same time.” said Laura. She always told us that the children are properly supervised and they love doing it, for it gives them key skills, and the villagers love it too because it is such a unique service. The post office opens daily during the pupils’ schooldays, for 15 minutes during their lunch break, and for another 15 minutes after lessons at 3 p.m.
