(Tex t 1)
M: Y our apartment always looks so good,so spotless and mine is such a mess.
W:I’ve been at the lab all the week.It is my roommate’s doing.
M:I am running out of coins doing my laundry.
W:That’s too bad.
M: It’s a shame that you didn’t win your tennis match.
M:I might have won if I listened to my coach.
M:The Variety Theatre finally went out of business.
W:Well,that’s not a surprise.It was the worst one in town.
M:Shall we run around the park or go for a bike ride?
M:It makes no difference to me.They are both good activities.
W: I feel terrible.I really need to relax.Do you know any good ways to fight stress?
M:Yeah,in fact,I read in a health magazine that you should drink two cups of lemon tea every day to fight stress.
M:That’s right.Lemon tea makes you feel more relaxed.And also,you should eat low stress foods like apples and grapes.
W:Sounds very strange,I guess hamburgers and French fries cause stress,right?
M:Yep.Hamburgers are high stress food.
W:Well,I guess I need to change my diet.
W :Do you know Tom?
W:No.But I know a Tim Smith.
M:Oh,yes,you are right.It was Tim Smith I meant.You know what happened to him the other day?
No,what happened then?
M:Well,he told me he saw his dead grandfather in London.
W:Oh,come on.You are not telling a ghost story,are you?
M:But he told me it was true.You see,his grandfather used to be an army officer during the war.And because he didn’t return home after the war,everybody though t he had been killed in the war.
W:But then,he suddenly appeared alive,like in those films.
M:Exactly.Tom,oh no,Tim,told me that by chance he saw an old man at the railway station selling newspapers.And he was surprised to see someone like his grandfather in a picture he had seen.So naturally he went to the man and asked him whether his name was Smith.And the man,I mean,his grandfather,said yes,and after that everything happened just like a film.
W:Amazing.But why didn’t the old man go back to his hometown after the war?
M:Well,that’s another long story.I’ll tell you later.
W :Now,Mr.Martin.I’ve just read your own doctor’s report.So you haven’t been feeling very well lately,is that right?
M:It’s...it’s my leg,doctor.My right leg.I keep getting a strange pain in it.
W:Could you tell me what the pain is like?
M:It’s like....like boiling water running down my leg.It’s been getting worse lately,too.I’ve been losing sleep .
W:You mean the pain’s been keeping you awake?
M:Yes,that’s right.It’s been keeping me awake.
W:Now,tell me,how long have you had this trouble?
M:The pain? For about a year now.
W:Hmm...Have you been getting tired lately after you have had a walk? For example,have you been getting a big sh ort of breath,perhaps?
M:Why,yes! Yes,I have,doctor!
W:Hmm...I think we’d better give you a few tests here in the hospital.
M:Do you think it’s serious,doctor?
But...Doctor Cook,my local doctor,thinks it’s only that I’ve been working too hard lately.
W:That could be the reason.Don’t worry,we’ll find out soon.
W :Why do we have to walk to the station? And where is it?
M:It’s just down that road...I think.
W:Look! There’s a policeman! Ask him the way.
M:All right.I’ll go and ask him.
(pause for 6 seconds)
W:So,what did he say?
M:W ell,we have to walk down this road,take the first tu rning on the left.Then walk until we come to the river and...
M:Yes.It’s over there,and there’s a bridge.Across the bridge,we will be able to see some road signs which will tell us the way.
W:But how far is it? How long does it take to walk there?
M:About fifteen minutes,if we walk quickly.
W:Fifteen minutes! We may be late for the train.And with these heavy bags,too! I think we ought to take a taxi.
M:Not at this hour.Look at the traffic.It’s moving very slowly.We can get there just as quickly on foot.
W:Well,I can’t possibly carry this bag any farther.
M:All right.Let me take it,then.
W:Don’t be silly.You can’t carry two bags at the same time.
M:Yes,I can.The bags aren’t that heavy...hmm!
W:You see! They’re heavier than you thought!
M:Perhaps it’s not such a bad idea after all.
W:What isn’t such a bad idea? What do you mean?
When you take a walk a in any of the cities in the west, you often see a lot of people walking with dogs.It is still true that the dog is the most useful and faithful animal in the world .But the reason why people keep a dog have changed ,In the old days ,people used to train dogs to protect themselves against the attacks by other besasts.And later they came to realize that the dog was ont only us eful for protection but willing to obey their master. For example, when people used dogs for hunting,the dogs would not eat without permission what they caught.But now people in the city need not protect themselves against attacks of animals.Why do they keep dogs then? Some people keep dogs to protect themselves from robbery,but the most important reason is fo r companionship.For a child,a dog is his best friend when he has no friends to play with; for a young couple,a dog is their child when they have no children; for old couples,a dog is also their child when their real children have grown up.So the main reason why people keep dogs has changed from protection to friendship.
