A   Hi, is that Anna?

B   Yes, hi Rob.

A   Hi there. Look, there’s a party on Saturday. Would you like to come?

B   Well, I’m not sure. I don’t really like parties. Whose party is it?

A   Linda’s. It’s her birthday. There’ll be lots of people you know. I’m sure you’ll have a good time.

B   Well, I’ll think about it and I’ll tell you tomorrow.


A   What did you do at the weekend, Martin?

B   I went to a concert. The Philharmonia at the City Hall.

A   What was it?

B   Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

A   Was it good?

B   Well, not bad. The orchestra were fantastic, but the singers weren’t very good.

A   Oh, that’s a pity.


A   OK, now please can you go to page 24? Come in. Oh, hello Maria. You’re a bit late.

B   Sorry, I miss the bus.

A   Oh, you missed the bus. You missed the bus on Monday too. And last week. OK, well come on and sit down.


A   Are you good at languages?

B   Well, quite – I can speak good French, and I can read Italian well, though I can’t speak it very well.

A   What about German?

B   I can understand it a bit, but I can’t really speak it.

A   Well, I think that’s brilliant. I can only speak a bit of Spanish and that’s it.


… at Highbury Stadium. And Ljundberg passes the ball to Henry, and he’s running towards the goal and he’s going to shoot and … ah the ball’s just gone over the bar – just a metre or so too high …

A   How old is she?

B   She’s 12.
