W: I don’t know what's wrong with my watch. It was just a month ago that I had it repaired.
M: Don’t waste your time and money any more, it's a very old watch and is quite worn out.
W: What time does the play start?
M: At 10:30. If we leave by nine o'clock, we should be able to get there half an hour before the play.
W: Come to the movies with us. Everybody needs to take a break every once in a while.
M: I guess I might as well. I've been studying so long I just can't concentrate.
M: Are we still going to the football game tonight?
W: Oh, sorry, I totally forgot about it. I’ve arranged to go with a friend to a new Chinese restaurant downtown. How about joining us?
M: Sure I'd love to.
W: Isn’t Frank supposed to arrive in Chicago this morning? Ms. Tylor is waiting for him.
M: He’s just called to say his flight was canceled. He won't be able to arrive until the afternoon.
W: Hmm, could you call him and ask him to email his report to Ms. Tylor then?
W: Which one hurts, the left or the right one?
M: The left one. It’s really painful. I can hardly hear with it.
W: Don’t go swimming for the next two days. If it doesn't get better by tomorrow, you should see the doctor.
M: I guess so. Maybe I should get something from the drugstore right now.
M: Don't be mad at me. I'm only five minutes late.
W: This is the last time I'm waiting for you. I mean it.
M: You know, I always have a good excuse. I promise you: you'll never have to wait for me again.
W: I hope so. Come on, let’s go get our tickets now. Oh, by the way, you have got your wallet with you, don’t you? I left mine at home.
W: Excuse me, ah, was my bedroom cleaned this morning?
M: Yes, Madam. All the rooms are cleaned in the morning, Madam.
W: Well, then I have a bit of a problem
M: Is your room not satisfactory, Madam?
W: No, it’s not that. It’s just that I can't find my necklace.
M: I'm sorry, Madam. Can you tell me a little bit more about it?
W: Well this morning I left my necklace here on the table by the bed but it’s just nowhere to be found.
M: I will report this to the manager right away, Madam.
W: Mr. Block, I need to take a few days off because my parents are coming over to visit.
M: But it's not really a good idea to take time off right now, you know.
W: Well, I know. But they've never been to the UK before and they don’t speak English.
M: Hmm, you know there are thousands of tourists in London who can't speak English and they manage to get around.
W: Yes, I know but they really expect me to be there. It’s culture. Chinese parents expect their children to do things like this.
M: I know, but truly if they care about your education, they’ll understand.
W: Well, do you think I could take maybe just two days off?
M: Ok, two days but you must catch up with all of the work and get all of the materials.
Good morning, today I'd like to talk about doing exercise and keeping fit. First let's deal with the importance of exercise. Many people today live a kind of lazy life, sitting in the office all day and then watching TV the whole evening. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you this way of life is bad for your health. In fact it can lead to all kinds of health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure and some of the problems can result in death. Now let me talk a little about preventing illness. Probably the most important thing to bear in mind is to be active. This does not mean that you have to go out and play sports. Of course sports are an excellent way to stay healthy but it's also important to remember that healthy activities can take many different forms like gardening and doing housework, for example. Now let me suggest some ways of doing exercise. In the first place, you should choose an activity that you enjoy and one you'll stick with and then start exercising slowly and try to increase the amount of exercise step by step. Well, that's all I have time for today, so until next time. Good-bye.
