W：You look tired, did you sleep well?
M: No, my friend and I had a party the whole night.
W: You should go home and take a rest.
M: I know, but my boss wants to see me right now.
W: May I have a word with you ?
M: You have cut me at a bad time. I am writing a report and have to finish within an hour.
W: You really like leaving face to the last minute.
W: I know this is a terrible habit.
W: Steven, I finally decided to go on a diet.
M: Good for you, but don't push yourself too hard, Lucy.
W: You are right, but summer is coming,. I do wish to be smarter sooner.
M: You are smart already. You see you are clever and quick in mind.
W: My goodness, it's freezing here in the room.
M: I am sorry, it will be ok as soon as I turn the heating on.
W: Darling, what do you think of these new shoes?
M: Umm, I am wondering where you are going to put them, when you are not wearing them.
M: How are we going there? Have you decided yet?
W: Should we fly? It's fast.
M: But if we fly, we'll miss the beautiful scenery.
W: You are right, then forget about airplanes.
M: Let's drive then, we can rent a car.
W: Drive? That sounds dangerous.
M: Then the only other choices are the train or the bus. I'd like to see what American buses like.
W: They are not as nice as trains.
W: How are you, John?
M: I am OK, and you? Carl?
W: Oh, busy, I've been working on those book reports for ages.
M: Me, too. Have you finished reading the books?
W: No, I haven't, and I am so worried. What about you?
M: I already have, but the writing is going so slowly. I feel like I have to read all the books again. I am so forgetful.
W: Oh really? Well, what are you going to do after you've finished?
M: I don't know, I hope I can go to Europe and relax.
W: So do I.
M: Can you give me some tips of a coming interview?
W: The first thing is to try to make a good impression.
M: How do I do that?
W: First, firmly shake the interviewer's hand, while greet him or her with a smile, be sure to keep eye contact.
M: Body language is really important. Isn't it?
W: Yes, the second thing is to have confidence. You get confidence from being prepared.
M: What should I do for that?
W: Learn a little bit about the company before the interview. Also think of possible questions and answers.
M: Should I recite my answers?
W: No, you should sound natural when you speak.
M: Should I ask about the salary?
W: No, either let them bring out the topic of money or else wait for a second interview.
M: Hi, Wendy.
W: Oh, Johny, how are you doing? Busy?
M: No, not at all. I've been a couch potato lately, killing time by watching TV. Oh, by the way, did you hear the news?
W: No, what is it?
M: They are going to turn the city square into an amusement park.
W: Wonderful! I am glad, that big and ugly thing will be gone.
M: You really are? In my opinion, the square is 100 times better than any amusement park.
W: I don't see why.
M: The square is a symbol of our city and is a nice place to have a walk for everybody.
W: Well, I don't know if that huge and boring thing can be our symbol, but I know for sure the city has tens of parks where you can take a nice walk.
M: I know what you mean, but don't you think that we will no longer have peace and quite once the amusement park opens?
W: Does that matter? To me more importantly, the amusement park means employment.
M: So what?
W: Income. If you have income, you have money to spend, and in turn, it will create more jobs.
