Short conversations

1. W: I think it’d be nice if you call up your old college friends to see what they’re doing these days.

M: I would like to, but I’m afraid that they’re all doing better than I am. It’d be embarrassing.

  Q: How does the man feel about his old college friends?

 

2. W: How would you like to drop by the football stadium and watch a game with me?

  M: Sorry. I already have plans. I’m taking a break from school to check out a new shop with a friend of mine. Maybe another day.

Q: Where will the woman go?

 

3. M: What do you think of Jennifer? I’m really into her and I think she’ll make a good wife.

  W: I think you’ve moved kind of quickly with her. I mean, you were only friends a week ago. And now you’re thinking about getting married? It’s surprising.

  Q: What are the speakers talking about?

 

4. W: How was a reunion party? You must’ve had a lot of to say to those people, since you haven’t seen them in 20 years.

  M: I sure did! Everybody had exciting new jobs and had done so much. I was excited to see them again.

  Q: What are the speakers talking about?

 

5. M: I feel sick to my stomach, just sitting around in this big city without any friends.

  W: You’d do well to get out and meet more people. Everyone needs companionship, you know. And you’re not any different.

Q: What can we learn from the conversation?

 

6. W: Could you give me a few dollars so I could see a movie with friends?

  M: You’re going out again? That makes three times this week! Friends are important, but I think you should concentrate more on your schoolwork.

  Q: What can be inferred from the conversation?

 

7. M: So, you would race me? Why not? I think a little competition would make us faster runners.

  W:Maybe. But I’m worried about what would happen to our friendship if we compared with each other. Things could get ugly.

  Q: What are the speakers talking about?

 

8. W: Don’t tell me you’re going to travel by yourself. Why don’t you go with a friend?

  M: Oh, I will! I will! I wouldn’t dream of traveling across Asia, or going anywhere, really, without a travel companion.

  Q:What are the speakers talking about?

 

9. W: Did any of my friends call me? They were supposed to meet me for drinks tonight. But they never showed up.

  M: Sorry, hon. I’ve been here with our kids all day and the phone never rang once.

  Q: What is the relationship between the two speakers?

 

10. M: I like you, and your dad is cool is cool, but it’s your friends…I just can’t take them!

   W:Sorry, sweetie. But if you want to stay with me, you’ve got to accept my friends. They’re part of my life.

   Q: What is the relationship between the two speakers?

 

Understanding a Long Conversation

M: What’s with the long face, sweetheart? You look like someone has died.

W: Someone did died.

M: Oh, my goodness! I’m sorry.

W: It’s OK. You didn’t know.

M: Would you like to talk about it? Getting your feelings out might help.

W: Yeah. All right.

M: So who has passed away?

W: A childhood friend of mine, someone I’ve known for years.

M: Well, people doe. This is a fact of life, and you shouldn’t feel so horrible about it.

W: Right. I know. But the terrible thing is that I treated her badly. In fact the last time we spoke, we had an argument. I guess I always felt resentful of her.

M:that’s why you fought?

W: Stupid, huh?

M: Yeah, I suppose.

W: I was hoping you’d make me feel better about things. What’s a boyfriend for?

M: Friends, boyfriends included, can do more than improve a person’s spirits. Do you think I should make you feel better, or should I listen to your problems and help you work out how you feel about them?

W: I feel guilty.

W: That’s reasonable. And maybe this feeling will cause to act differently toward your friends. Try not to be so resentful next time.

2. Why is the woman upset?

3. According to the woman, what might help the woman?

4. What was the relationship between the woman and the person who passed away?

Understanding a Passage

Busy schedules often prevent us from getting together with our friends. But do you know that maintaining a group of half a dozen or so good friends is actually good for your health? It’s true! People with a strong network of friends tent to live longer, according to an Australian study that followed 1,500 people older than the age of 70 for 10 years. The outcome showed that having a group of good friends is even more important to living longer than having close family ties. The study concluded that those who had a strong network of friends were 22 percent less likely to die at a younger age than those with fewer friends. Researchers suggest that this could be because friends can influence health behaviors, such as discouraging smoking and drinking, and also affect a person’s mood, self-worth, and ability to cope with a loss. So, if you don’t have close friends, you might want to get some soon. And if you do, then you should be grateful for them.

Task 1

W: No! No! No! You’re holding your bet all wrong. Keep your hands down lower, like this. And keep your elbows up. OK> now, swing.

M: How’s this?

W: Not bad. Now, try it when I throw the ball to you. Ready?

M: Yeah.

W: Here it comes!

M: Umph! Damn it!

W: Watch your language!

M: Sorry. But you’ve been coaching me all the week, and I’m still not hitting the ball.

W: This takes time. Be patient! While I’m working with someone else, I want you to practice with some of your teammates over there, OK?

M: Those guys?

W: Is there a problem with that?

M: They don’t like me around. They say that my awful playing is dragging them down.

W: That’s foolish. Go make friends with them. You are on the same baseball team, which means you should help each other. Besides, tutoring is a wonderful way to remember and practice what one has learned. If one offers to help you practice, you’ll both improve. Tell them this.

M: Then tell them to work with you, or I’ll remove them from the team. That’ll definitely get them moving!

Q: 1.What are the speaker doing?

2. How do the other players feel about the man?

Task 2

During the last year, 40,490 people died from breast cancer, 162,460 from lung cancer, 55,170 from colon cancer and 27,530 from prostate cancer. And, since there are so many other types of cancer, this picture is incomplete. Cancer is a terrible disease for there is no sure cure. There are, however, things that can help. As someone who has nursed cancer survivors back to health, I’d like to say a few things.

For most of kinds of cancer, surgery remains that primary treatment. It is most effective if the cancer is diagnosed before it spreads. If the cancer has spread, surgery is often replaced by or followed by radiation therapy. Radiation is usually done with X rays and gamma rays.

Social support from friends has also proven to be helpful. One study found that women with breast cancer lived longer over a seven-year period and has less chance of contracting it again if they had a large group of friends who offered support. The study found for those who could discuss their problems with a group of friends, their diseases progressed at a significantly slower rate..
