M: If you’d like to go there for dinner this evening, I’ll phone the restaurant.
W: Thank you, but I promised my sister I’d take her to the airport.
M: Excuse me. I wonder if you could tell us where we can find the manager Mr. Parker.
W: Certainly. He should be at the office on the third floor. I’m going that way. I’ll show you.
W: I’m feeling much better now, doctor. Can I stop taking the medicine?
M: Hm…I’m glad you’re a little better but you must continue to take the medicine for some days. Starting from today, you may take it three times a day instead of four times a day. OK?
W: All right. Thank you.
W: Would you like to take this suit, sir?
M: Well, I like the color and the material. The size is all right, too.
W: Yes, it fits you perfectly.
M: But I’m afraid the price is a little more than I can afford. Perhaps I can look at something cheaper.
W: Mr. Rice, I wonder if I could be off on Friday.
M: Do you really have to? It’s a bit difficult with so many people away on holiday, you know.
M: What kind of dress are you looking for?
W: Since it’s getting warmer at this time of year, I want something light. What materials do you have?
M: A cotton dress is suitable in spring. We have many kinds. What color would you like? I think yellow or green would be good colors for you.
W: I’m afraid I want a white dress.
W: Excuse me. Can you tell me which is the way to the nearest shoe shop?
M: There’s one on Queen’s Road.
W: Thank you, but how can I get there?
M: It’s not far from here. Walk along this road and after three blocks you’ll see a post office on your right. The shop is just behind it.
W: How long do you think it will take me to get there?
M: About 20 minutes at the most. Anyway, you can take the No.102 Bus.
W: I’d better go there by bus. By the way, where is the bus stop, please?
M: Just across the road.
W: Thanks a lot.
M: Are you ready for the trip to the “Big Apple”?
W: “Big Apple”? What do you mean?
M: “Big Apple” is the nickname for New York City. Are you going to New York with us, or aren’t you?
W: Yes, I’m going. I’m especially looking forward to visiting a special show on modern American painters there. But tell me, where did the nickname come from?
M: Some of the musicians of the 20s gave it the name. When they played a concert in New York in the 1920s, the musicians called it the “Big Apple”.

W: It sounds like a great chance to get some experience. Thanks for thinking of me.
In recent years, the daily weather reports have sounded like real news—surprising and sometimes even frightening. For example, in the United States, there was a June snowfall in Colorado and floods in the Southern California desert. The worst drought in fifty years broke out in a large part of the African continent. So, what is up with the weather? Are we seeing a worldwide change in climate, or are snowy summer days not really that unusual at all? In fact, they say we should always expect extreme hot and cold or wet and dry periods. Scientists also point out that natural disasters can cause extreme weather that lasts for months or even years. Volcanic eruptions for example, can change temperatures around the world. Other experts, however, point out that these explanations do not explain some major changes in the earth’s climate—such as the rapid growth of the Sahara Desert during the last ten years.
