Unit 15 Taking Friends to the Movies 邀请朋友看电影
A: Oh, hello, Mary. How nice of you to drop in!
B: Hello, Lucy. I hadn't seen you for such a long time that I thought I'd just drop in for a little chat.
A: I'm so glad you did. By the way, you can stay for dinner, can't you?
B: But it would be so much bother for you.
A: Indeed not. Not bother at all.
B: How about going to the movies after dinner? I'll treat.
A: That's a good idea, but we'll make Fred pay. You know he just got his bonus.
B: As a matter of fact I just got mine. That's why I wanted to treat you two.
A: Well, I guess I'm the only one that isn't qualified to pay for the movies.
B: How right you are!
A: By the way, how is your mother?
B: Oh, she's quite well. She's staying at my uncle's place for a few days. That's why I don't have to be home for dinner.
A: How nice. Will you excuse me a minute? I'll call Fred.
B: Fred won't be late, will he?
A: No, he says he's just leaving the office.
B: Can I help you with the dinner?
A: Oh, that reminds me. I have the roast in the oven...
B: It isn't burned, is it?
A: No, thank goodness. It seems to be just right. As a matter of fact you reminded me just in time.
B: Do you mind of I play a record on the stereo?
A: Of course not. Go right ahead.

Unit 19 Applied Conversation 探望生病的朋友
A: Hello, Caroline. How are you feeling?
B: Much better, Tina. Thanks for coming to see me.
A: It was such a shock to hear that you were in an accident. How did it happen?
B: It all happened so quickly that I really don't know who was in the wrong.
A: Were you driving the car?
B: No, Fred was driving. We were just passing a side street when a boy on a bicycle came out. Fred swung the wheel around to avoid hitting him. We missed the boy on the bicycle but hit another car that was trying to pass us.
A: Then it wasn't Fred's fault at all, was it?
B: No, I don't suppose it was. But the man in the other car was awfully angry.
A: But he's as much to blame because he tried to pass you. Was he hurt?
B: No, I was the only one that was hurt.
A: It's a shame. Does your arm hurt very much?
B: Not any more.
A: Did you break it?
B: No. The doctor says the bone isn't broken. I think it should be all right in a few days.
A: You were lucky, weren't you?
B: I should say so. I was wearing a heavy coat. I think that saved me fromshavingsa broken arm.
A: Well, take care of yourself. I'll drop in again later this afternoon.
B: Thanks, Tina. And say hello to the others for me.
A: Yes, I will. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. Charles left Beijing this morning for a trip and he asked me to give you his best.
B: Thanks. But what made him think of making a trip now? I know he?s broke.
A: I don't know the reason. Probably nobody knows except Charles himself. Anyway he says he'll be back early next month.
B: I'll be looking forward to his return. He owes me some money.
A: Well, I think I'd better be leaving now. Goodbye, Caroline.
B: Goodbye, Tina. Thanks again for coming to see me.
