Carter：Susan, good evening. Why are you so dressed up?
Susan：I am on my way out to a New Year’s banquet. How do I look? Is my make-up OK?
Carter：You look great. Your make-up is perfect。
Susan：Do you think I should wear a different dress?
Carter：No, the one you have on looks fabulous, especially with your hair like that。
Susan：Thanks for saying. Do you have any ideas which necklace I should wear?
Carter：With that dress I’d say your white diamond necklace would look perfect。
Susan：Thanks for helping out. Now that I’m ready, what are you doing tonight?
Carter：Not much, just a house party with some friends。
Susan：Sounds fun. Anyone I know is going?
Carter：Yeah, most of the people are from our office。
Susan：Sounds Like I'm missing out on a good time. Oh, well, there is always next year。
Carter：I’m sure you’ll have fun no matter where you go. Remember to take your bag。
儿童英语口语培训：After Getting Home
Jane：Home at last. Tonight we have a lot of homework though。
Tom：Are you saying we don’t have time to watch our favorite show tonight? Jane, you know I really don’t like our teacher all that much. He gives far too much homework. He criticizes me in front of everyone all the time。
Jane：To tell the truth, I don’t really like him either. He’s kind of boring and not very active. He always looks unhappy too。
Tom：Yes, and he also…
Jane：Do you think we should be talking about him like this behind his back?
Tom：Probably not. After all he is our teacher. We should try to find something nice to say. If you can’t say something nice you shouldn’t say anything at all。
Jane：I absolutely agree. It’s getting dark. We should finish our homework now。
Tom：All right. I want to take a shower first, I’m exhausted。
Mother：It’s time for bed。
Frank：But I’m not sleepy, mom. Can I stay up and watch more TV?
Mother：It’s already past 11. You have school tomorrow. You’ll be sleepy all day tomorrow if you don’t sleep well tonight。
Frank：I know, but I promise I won’t be sleepy tomorrow. I work really hard。
Mother：Don’t you have exams coming up soon? I’m sure you could spend more time preparing for those。
Frank：Oh, I nearly forgot the exams。
Mother：You do well in the math, but your history is not good enough, am I right?
Frank：Yeah, I guess so. Maybe I could go to sleep now and get up early to review the lessons tomorrow。
Mother：An excellent idea. Work now and play later。
Frank：I know you’re right. School is more important than TV, but can I watch one more show then go to bed?
Mother：No, now is bedtime。
