A   When are you having your party?

A   Is that Friday?

B   No, it’s Saturday.


A   Your mother looks really young. How old is she?

B   Nearly 60.

A   Wow, she looks more like 50.

B   Well, in fact she’s 59.


A   Hello, Mr Jarvis. What’s the problem?

B   It’s my leg – well, my knee to be precise. It’s very painful. I can’t move my leg at all.

A   Is it the left or the right knee?

B   Just the right knee, the left one’s fine.

A   Let’s have a look.


A   Oh John, look at that painting. It’s wonderful!

B   Which one?

A   The one of the woman combing her hair.

B   Do you really like it? I don’t. I don’t like the way he paints women. I prefer the one of the boy playing the guitar. The blue one.


A   Can I help you?

B   Yes, I’m look for a thing which connects my camera to the computer.

A   Is it a digital camera?
