Hi Cathy! What are you doing here?
I come to visit my tutor Bettina, and you?
I am living here!
Oh, what a coincidence!
Yeah, would you like a cup of coffee?
I would love to, but I have an appointment with Bettina.
Well, you can come to my house later, if you like.
That would be great!
Ok, see you later!
See you later!
Hi Tom， how are you doing?
Tired. I am preparing for my English test. I hate it.
Oh that's too bad. Why do you hate studying English?
I just cannot remember so many new words.
I can not too. Oh I have an idea!
I can give you a dictation and you give me the dictation later so that we can help each other and enjoy the process of study!
Ok lets start now!
Hi Tom, what are you doing here?
Hi Cathy, I am searching the newest disk of Celine Dion.
Oh you like her as well?
Of cause! Her voice is fantastic. No one could resist!
I totally agree.
Which song do you like the most?
A lot. My heart will go on is one of them.
Yes I love that one too.
Oh here is the disk you are looking for, I guess.
Yes, perfect! Thank you very much!
You are welcome.
-Oh what a smoke!
-Yeah, Tom has been here for a while and he smoked.
-Isn't it forbidden to smoke in the dorm?
-Yes. I hate smoking too. We may place an NONE-SOMKE mark on our door so that others will not smoke here any more.
-I can not understand why those smokers smoke. Nothing good they can get from smoking.
-You are right. At least they can not enjoy smoking here and make us feel so bad.
-Not only feel bad, but also bad for our health!
-So let's make the mark right now.
-Hi Tom， it is 12 PM now, can’t you just be quiet?
-I am playing a very interesting program. Would you like to join me?
-If you play it, you will change your answer.
-Come on Tom, it is midnight now, and we have classes to take tomorrow.
-Just one minute. Why don't you understand playing game is much more fun than sleeping?
-I understand that, Tom. Otherwise you won't stay up so late. But you have to choose the right time.
-But we are so busy in taking those boring classes in the daytime.
-Then you spend the whole night in playing game? That's why you think the classes are boring. You can not concentrate on the lectures at all. You play too much.
-That's because these games are really fun.
-Yes. To play just for a while is fun. Playing too much means you are going to fail in the exams.
-All right, all right. I will go to bed right now.
-Hi Tom, what are you busy doing there?
-Preparing for my final math exam. I found these questions are too hard to answer.
-Good for you. You will get to know them very quickly.
-I hope so.
-Listen, it is Rose's birthday this Sunday. And I am preparing a surprise birthday party for her. Would you like to come that night?
-I hope I could. But you know, I will have the exam just on Monday!
-That's too bad. Can’t you have all these work done before Sunday?
-I guess not. But I will give it a try.
-All right. Hope to see you then.
-I'll call you before Sunday if I can make it.
-Ok, good luck with your exam!
Reporter1:Allison. Reporter2:Celia. Student1:Benny.Student2:Kimberley.
Allison: Well here I am at the Brooklyn Academy of Dramatic Arts. We are asking different students here about their favourite forms of artistic entertainment. Pop or classical concerts? Art galleries or the theatre? The ballet or the opera? The first person I'm going to talk to is Benny Gross. Benny comes from New York and he's 20 years old and he's studying the piano. Benny, hello and welcome to our programme.
Benny: Hi, thanks.
Allison: So, first question Benny— you ever been to an art gallery?
Benny: Yes, lots of times.
Allison: And the ballet, have you ever been to the ballet?
Benny: Yes, a few times. It's all right, I quite like it.
Allison: And what about classical concerts?
Benny: Yes, of course, many many times.
Allison: Erm—next—have you ever been to an exhibition, Benny?
Benny: Oh, yes—I love going to photographic exhibitions.
Allison: Do you? Now, next question—what about a ... folk concert?
Benny: No, never. I think folk music is awful.
Allison: Ok. And the opera? Have you ever been to the opera?
Benny: Yes. Two or three times. It's a little difficult but I quite like it.
Allison: And a pop concert?
Benny: No, never.
Allison: And finally—have you ever been to the theatre?
Benny: Yes, once or twice, but I didn't like it much.
Allison: Ok Benny. Now the next thing is—which do you like best from this list of eight forms of artistic entertainment?
Benny: Well I like going to classical concerts best because I'm a musician, and I love classical music.
Allison: Ok and what next?
Benny: Erm let's see—next, art galleries I think. And then, exhibitions.
Allison: OK—art galleries, then exhibitions. Then? The theatre?
Benny: No, I don't think so, I don't really like the theatre.
Allison: The ballet? The opera? Which do you prefer of those two?
Benny: The opera.
Allison: So of the theatre and the ballet, which do you prefer?
Benny: Erm, the ballet I think because there's the music. I can always enjoy the music if I don't always like the dancing.
Allison: Right, well, thanks very much, Benny.
Benny: You're welcome.
Celia: Next guest is Kimberley Martins. What are you studying here, Kimberley?
Kimberley: Modern dance. I want to be a professional dancer when I leave.
Celia: OK, so here we go. First question—have you ever been to an art gallery?
Kimberley: Yes, lots of times.
Celia: And have you ever been to the ballet? Stupid question I think.
Kimberley: Yes, a bit. Of course I have. I go almost every night if I can.
Celia: And what about classical concerts?
Kimberley: Yes—there are classical concerts here a lot—the other students perform here and I go to those when I can.
Celia: What about exhibitions—have you ever—?
Kimberley: Oh yes, lots of times—I like exhibitions—exhibitions about famous people—dancers, actors, you know—
Celia: Mmm. And what about a folk concert? Have you ever been to one of them?
Kimberley: No, I don't like folk music very much.
Celia: What about the opera?
Kimberley: No, never. I don't really like opera. It's a bit too heavy for me.
Celia: A pop concert?
Kimberley: Yes. I saw Madonna once. She was fantastic—she's a really great dancer.
Celia: And have you ever been to the theatre?
Kimberley: Yes, I have.
Celia: Right. Thank you Kimberley. My next question is—which do you like best of all? And I think I know the answer.
Kimberley: Yes—ballet, of course. After that, exhibitions. And after that, art galleries.
Kimberley: Erm, what's left. Can I see the list?
Celia: Yes, of course.
Kimberley: Erm, let me see—oh, it's difficult—I suppose—what next?—er—classical concerts, pop concerts, the theatre. Well, I think pop concerts next, I like going to those. Then I don't know. Classical concerts or the theatre? Classical concerts I think. So that leaves the theatre after them. OK?
Celia: Great. And many thanks for talking to us, Kimberley.
Kimberley: You're welcome.
