Test1 M: How about the novel
you’ve just finished reading? W: It takes your attention the moment you start reading it. M: Really? Could you lend it to me this Sunday? W: No problem. Test2 M: Why don’t you and Elle join us for dinner tonight? The five of us haven’t gone out together for a long time. W: Ella says it is always too noisy to enjoy the meal at MacDonald. M: Shall we go somewhere quiet? Test3 M: It is extremely cold today, isn’t it? W: Yes, the weather forecast says it will snow heavily again tonight. M: Aren’t you glad that we will get away from this for a week? W: Surely I am. But let’s call tomorrow morning before we leave for the airport to make sure our flight hasn’t been delayed or cancelled. Test4 M: Our meeting may last longer than planned. Would you call my wife and tell her I won’t have
supper at home? W: Yes, sir. If anyone calls while you are out, I’ll take the message. M: That’s OK. Thank you. Test5 W: I heard you are moving to London. M: Yes, I’ve got an offer from a big company there. W: Oh, that is great! But I am going to miss you. M: Me too. Let’s keep in touch. Test6 W: Hey, Eason. I didn’t know you rode a bike to work. M: Yeah, it helps to keep me fit and it is environmentally friendly, too. W: One less car on the road means less pollution. M: Right. Since my office is near a park, it is a really nice ride, too. W: How far is it? M: About 5 miles. It takes me about half an hour. W: Oh, I wish I could do it too, but I work in the city. So I take the train. M: You are doing your part for the environment by taking public transportation. W: True. Test7 W: Dr. Richard, when did you have the idea of helping cancer patients? M: Actually, I didn't have any idea when I left high school at the age of 18. Then I found a job in a small medical lab. I never dreamed I would help save people’s lives. W: Then what caused your change? M: I love lab work, so I went back to school. After ten years, I got my PhD. Then I worked at a medical company, where I began the research on a medicine to treat lung cancer patients. Now I have been here for 8 years. For me, a drug saves more than life. It can save a family. W: I couldn’t agree more with you. Test8 M: Why are you so angry with Jim? W: You know we bought a computer about two weeks ago? M: And Jim likes it ever so much. W: Well, that is the problem. Whenever he comes back he will run to the computer and play the games for hours. What’s more, he often stays up late. He is not spending enough time in his
school work. M: That is too bad. W: Just now I received his head teacher’s phone call, telling me that he failed in the exam. M: My God! You should do something about it! W: Yeah. I told him not to use the computer during the weekdays. M: Is he going to follow your advice? W: You know kids; whatever their parents say just goes in one ear and out the other. So I wonder if you could talk to him. You are his favorite cousin, and your advice may work. Test9 M: Give me all your cash, old woman. W: What is it? Ah, I’m being robbed again! Please get the gun out of my face. I’ll do what you want. M: What I want now is for you to shut up and give me all of your cash. W: Oh, here it is-all of the money from the cash register. M: That is too little. Now give me your wallet. W: All right, here you are. M: Good. Now, give me a bottle of Scotch from up there on the shelf. W: I am sorry, young man. You can shoot me if you like. But I can’t give you that bottle unless you are 21. M: All right. Here is my driver’s license. Do you see there? I am over 21. M: Yes, you are over 21. I also see that your name is Jamison Kelleher and you live on Main Street. The police will be very interested in that information. Aren’t you sorry now that you tired to rob me? Test10 From Monday to Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and on weekends they are free to relax and enjoy themselves. Some watch TV or go to the movies. Others take part in sports. There are many different ways to spend their free time. Almost everyone has some kind of hobbies. It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. Some hobbies are very expensive, but others don’t cost anything at all. Some collections are worth a lot of money. Others are valuable only to the owners. I know a man who has a coin collection worth $250. He is very happy about his purchase and thinks the price is reasonable. On the other hand, my youngest brother collects matchboxes. He has almost 600 of them, but I doubt if they are worth any money. However, to my brother they are extremely valuable. Nothing makes him happier than to find a new matchbox for his collection.
That is what a hobby means, I guess. It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for fun. The value in dollars is not important. We do it for the pleasure it gives us.
