what's up, michael? you look down today.
i got a "c" again in the english exam. what do you think i should do?
well, english is a "paper tiger". its natural enemy is adequate practice.
i did practice a lot, like doing lots of reading comprehension exercises every day.
well, i suggest that every day you do some reading aloud, and try to speak more .that will help cultivate your sense of the language, which is essential for english learning.
i see. i'll give it a try.
hello, elizabeth. how are you?
are you sure you’re all right? you look a bit worried today. is anything wrong?
well, yes, there is something wrong actually. perhaps you can give me some advice.
of course, if i can.
well, last night when i returned from the theatre, i found that i’d lost my wallet.
oh dear! that’s terrible! what was in your wallet?
well, some money, of course, my visa, all my identity cards and some photos.
well, if i were you, i’d go to the police station straight away and report it.
yes, i’ve already done that, and they said they’d look for it. but we’re leaving soon and i need my visa and identitycards badly.
oh dear! what a pity! are you sure you lost the wallet in the theatre?
yes, quite sure.
i think you should put an advertisement in the china daily, saying when and where you lost it.
but that takes too long.
wait a minute! my uncle lives in beijing and he lives very close to the theatre. i’ll telephone him and ask him to go thereto inquire about it. you’d better have breakfast now and i’ll meet you later.
oh, thank you. i hope he finds it.
