021 Small talk
A: Hi, there, I'm steve Saunders. What's your name?
B: I'm Paul Whitney. Isn't this convention great?
A：Yes, it is, better than I expected it would be. The presenters have been first rate. Is this the first conference you've been to?
B: No, I've been coming for the last three years. Each year keeps getting better. Where are you from?
A: I'm from Long Island, New York. What about yourself?
B: I'm from the other side of coast, Los Angeles.
A: Wow, I really like California...the weather there is much better than the east coast.
B: Have you been to California?
A: Just once. Quite a few years ago we took the kids to Disneyland on our vacation. They had a blast.
B: How many kids do you have?
A: Two, a boy and a girl. They are already grown now.
B: Well, California has changed over the last little while. You should come back out sometime.
A: Can I get you something to drink?
B: No, that's ok, I already have a coke. Why don't you have a seat? You look like you've been on your feet all day.
A: I guess I could take a break. So, how do you like Denver?
B: It's great! The mountains here are beautiful, and the skiing is spectacular. Have you been here for a long time?
A: About six years...
B: What do you do for a living?
A: I manage one of the ski lodges. It's a great job, I can spend a lot of my time outdoors, and I also get to ski for free all season.
B: Wow, talk about job perks! That's great. I would like to do something exciting like that. But I am only an accountant. Not too much excitement there, huh?
A: That's okay. If it weren't for you accountants, nobody would have the money to go skiing!内容来自 听力课堂网：http://www.tingclass.net/show-7008-127762-1.html
