W: What’s the time by your watch?
M: It’s eleven sharp.
W:I feel hungry now. I think it must be time for lunch.
M: You have to wait for another half hour.
W: Sharon, I know you are not really a pet. You are a friend...sort of. But I can’t let you st ay out here in the cold.
M: Who are you talking with, Jane?
M: Will Dr Smith be able to see me at about 8:30 on Friday?
W: Sorry, but he’s fully booked till 11: 30.
M: Would 1:50 be convenient?
W: Yes, he is free then.
W: I want to go to Yellow Street.
M: Yes, Madam. It’ll take about twenty minutes.
W: The traffic seems terribly heavy. It’s unusual.
M: No, Madam. It’s about the same every day at this t ime.
W: This is my house. You can’t do anything against my wishes. You can’t put your feet on my chairs. You can’t stay out late at night. You can’t ask friends to dinner in the house. You must pay me at the beginning of every month but not at the end.
M: OK.I won’t do anything against your wishes.
M: Hi, Rose. You’ve been looking for houses for months. Can’t you find one?
W: Well, I should be careful about choosing one. It’s a big step to buy a house. I’d rather take time now than be sorry later.
M: That’s right. There’re a lot of houses for sale near the university.
W: I’ve been there, very beautiful houses, but I prefer old but big houses. We need lots of rooms, you know. And I think I can get a better buy on an old house.
M: However, a cheap house means less modern conveniences. Why not get a new one?
W: W ell, Jeff can remodern the old one. You know, he’s so skillful. some of the new houses now have very small rooms. I wouldn’t want to spend the rest of my life in them.
M: Aren’t you tired of keeping so many rooms clean every day?
W: Not at all. Cleaning is a pleasure for me. Oh, here comes my bus. Bye!
M: Hi, Jane. It’s nice to see you again. I heard that you went to the United Kingdom during the vacation.
W: Yes. I paid a visit to London and attended a summer course in English.
M: Wow. It sounds so good. How long did you stay there?
W: Well, I went there on July 5th and came back on August 15th.
M: What about the course?
W:I think the course was well organized. The teachers were nice. They taught us to listen, speak, read and write in English, but it mostly focused on speaking. One interesting thing I found was that the English classes were different from ours because they were very free. You can sit anywhere you like in the cl assroom. You can ask the teacher questions at any time during the class, and you are welcome to share your ideas with the classmates and teachers. I really enjoy this kind of class.
M: How interesting! Maybe our teachers should try that.
M: Hello, can I help you?
W: Yes, I’d like to go on a sailing holiday this summer in Italy.
M: Have you been sailing before?
W: No. I wanted to go to Sweden last year, but I didn’t have enough money.
M: Well, it is quite expensive. Sailing holidays start at about three hundred pounds.
W: Yes, my friend s went in August last year. They paid four hundred and fifty pounds each. The most I can pay is three hundred and eighty pounds.
M: Well, that should be enough. Would you like to be by the sea or a lake?
W: Well, I’ d prefer a lake in the mountains.
M: Okay. The Aqua Center in north Italy will be best for you. That costs ￡370.
W: Okay. Can I pay by credit card? I haven’t got my checkbook.
M: Yes, that’ s fine.
M: Hi, Mrs. Smith. Nice to see you here.
W: Hi, Mr. White. I’m here to buy a pair of shoes for Tom again.
M: He wore out the pair you bought last month?
W: Yes. Sometimes I think I should buy h im a pair of iron shoes.
M: Oh, no. What you need is a pair of strong and comfortable shoes.
W: What’ s your suggestion?
M: Maybe you should buy him a pair of leather shoes.
W: Tom doesn’ t like leather shoes.
M: Then, how about sports shoes? They are strong and comfortable.
W: It seems that is the only choice. All right. I’ll take your suggestion. How about this pair?
M: They are good.
Well, generally speaking, we could say that there are four stages to culture shock. First of all, the “honeymoon” stage. Uh, to the visitor, everything seems new, different, and novel. The food, the surroundings, and the buildings. And it produces a feeling of excitement: a desire to look around, to experiment, and to explore.
The next stage is the “horror” stag e, where the newness wears off, and the visitor sees the country from a different viewpoint, and often begins to criticize the cou ntry, the life, and values of the people.
The next stage, we could say, is the “humor” stage, where people begin to reflect back and laugh at their mistakes in the earlier stages.
And the final stage, we could say, is the “home” stage, where people begin to feel at home and enj oy living in that foreign country.
