My father is a doctor. He works in a big hospital.
What a lovely dolphin! It looks like a dancer!
Oh, my God, I left my bag in the taxi.
Look at the sign! You can’t turn right.
The weekend is coming. What shall we do?
W: Good morning. The Great Wall Hotel!
M: Good morning. I want to book a double room from June 23-25.
W: Sorry, I’m late.
M: Oh, it’s two o’clock now. The meeting has been on for twenty minutes.
W: Can I borrow your dictionary, Mike?
M: Sorry, Sally. I’ve just lent it to Kitty.
W: It doesn’t matter. I will ask Peter.
W: Your uncle comes from Australia, doesn’t he?
M: No, he comes from Japan. But he used to live in Australia.
W: Excuse me. Where is the supermarket?
M: Let me see. It’s in front of the post office. Just go straight and turn left.
M: Hi, Lily. Did you have a good vacation?
W: Yes, I did. Thanks. I went to Hainan.
M: Oh, really? How was the weather there?
W: Not good. It rained every day.
M: Oh, that’s too bad! How was the traffic?
W: It was awful!
M: You said you had a good vacation but you had an awful time!
W: No, I didn’t. I went shopping every day. The fruit was very nice!
M: Will you go there again if you have another chance?
W: Yes, of course. I miss the fruit there.
W: What were you doing from 7:30 to 9:00 last night, John?
M: I was reading an interesting novel from 7:30 to 8:30.
W: Then what about your sister Rose?
M: Let me see. Oh, she was doing her homework then.
W: And how about your parents?
M: They were watching TV then.
W: No wonder I saw light through your windows and heard noise from your house last night.
M: Oh, did you? What were you doing then?
W: I was just passing by. My parents and I were going to a movie.
M: You must have had a good time.
Wang Lei is fourteen now. He began to study in a middle school two years ago. His home is in a small village, and it’s nearly six kilometers from his school. He is never late for school. His mother thinks Wang Lei is too tired. She wants to borrow some money to buy a bike for him. Wang Lei doesn’t agree because he knows his father is always ill and the family spends much money on medicine. He keeps running every day. He becomes stronger and stronger. He runs fastest in his class.
Last month there was a sports meeting in his school. Wang Lei ran faster than any other boy and got the first place in the boys’ 1,000 meters. The whole school knew him. His classmates and teachers were very proud of him. He was happy, too. He ran home fast to tell his parents about the good news.
Here’s a really good game, the best one I have ever seen this year. It’s the last five minutes of the game. Henry plays football in France. He has the ball now. He passes the ball to David. David kicks it over the heads of the Englishmen towards the goal. But David’s too far away. France and England still have one goal each and there are only two minutes left for the game. Just then an English player gets the ball. He passes it to Bill, who is “King of the Match”. Bill puts the ball into the goal. In the end, the English team wins. What an exciting game!
