W: Morning, Tom.
M: Hi, Mary.
W: You seem to be in a hurry.
M: Yes. I’ve got a meeting in a minute.
W: Okay. I won’t hold you up then.
M: Right. I’ll see you later.
W: See you later.
W: Nice and warm again, isn’t it?
M: Oh, it’s lovely. Think of the nasty weather we had last week.
W: How are you these days?
M: Fine, thank you. And you?
W: Fine today, though a bit under the weather last week.
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?
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.
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.
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.
