M: Right. I’ll see you later.

W: See you later.

 

Conversation 2

W: Nice and warm again, isn’t it?

M: Oh, it’s lovely. Think of the nasty weather we had last week.

M: Fine, thank you. And you?

W: Fine today, though a bit under the weather last week.

 

Conversation 3

M: Hi, Mary, it’s been a long time

W: Hello, my old friend. Long time no see. How are you doing?

M: Well, I’m doing okay. And how about yourself?

W: Not so well. To be honest with you, I broke up with Tom.

M: Oh. I’m sorry to hear that. What happened?

 

Conversation 4

M: Good morning, Miss Li.

W: Morning, Mike.

M: I’m sorry that I was absent yesterday.

W: I’ve already got your certificate for sick-leave. How do you feel today?

M: I feel much better now.

W: Have you received the reading material handed out yesterday?

M: I’ve already got it. Thanks.

W: I will explain it in detail in the next class. Could you preview it?

M: I will.

 

Conversation 5

M: Hi, Lilly, it’s so nice to see you again.

W: Hum, me too. This winter holiday was especially long. What have you done?

M: Nothing special. I had a get-together with some schoolmates at the high school, visited the Internet and read a couple of books which I had been longing for. How about yours?

W: You know, I like traveling. I made good use of this long vacation and enjoyed myself.

 

Conversation 6

M: Good morning, Linda. How have you been?

W: Pretty bad. I’ve had a bad cold for three days and still can’t get rid of it.

M: I’m sorry to hear that. Is there anything else I can do?

W: No, thanks.

M: Well, I hope you’ll feel better soon.

W: Thank you for your concern.
