A Hi, is that Anna?

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.
A Well, she could learn volleyball, football, basketball.
B I think she’s like basketball. She’s quite tall for her age.
A Well, there are two groups. One trains on Tuesdays and one on Thursdays.
B I think Thursdays would be best for her. She finishes school early on Thursdays. What time is the class?

B Yes, that’s fine.
A Can I have her name, please?
B Yes, her name’s Susan Stevens.
