Question No. 14
W： I was going to buy a new TV this weekend, but my washing machine broke down, and it’s too old to fix. I also wanted a new suitcase for my trip next week, but I can’t afford everything now.
M： So, what’ll you do?
W： Well, clean clothes are the most important thing.
Question No. 15
W： What’s wrong, Billy?
M： My watch stopped, Mom.
W： Maybe you need a new battery. I can get it changed for you tomorrow.
M： OK, thanks.
W： Here, use mine for now. I can check the time on my cellphone.
M： Why didn’t I think of that? I’ve got a cellphone, too.
Question No. 16
W： When does the next city tour start?
M： Let’s see. It leaves Central Bus Station at 1:00, and there are several pick-up points along the way.
W： Does it stop at the Redwood Hotel?
M： Well, it stops at Taylor Hall and the Crown Theater.
W： I think it’s easier to start from the beginning.
Questions No. 17 to 19
M： Thanks for calling, Kathy. I got your letter and the photo of your class reunion last week.
W： Good. I have the same one. Mike took the picture.
M： Oh, that’s nice. You look good in your white suit with the flower on the pocket. Who’s that in the striped dress… Mary?
W： No, she couldn’t make it. She’s a flight attendant, and she had to work. That’s Sue, who used to live on Pine Street.
M： Who’s the handsome young guy next to you?
W： Which one? The one with the cap is Timothy Bloom. He was our star basketball player, remember? And the other one is Tommy Lee. He’s in law school now.
M： Too bad Mike’s not in the picture with all of you.
W： Yeah, he didn’t have a self-timer on his camera. You can see George had a camera, too, but he didn’t take any pictures of us.
M： Oh, that’s just like George.
