CONVERSATION IN THE GYM / BOOK SHOP / LIBRARY



A         IN THE GYM


A. Hello, my name is Jane and I’d like to ask a few questions about getting fit.
B. Hi Jane. What can I do for you?

A. I need to get in shape.
B. Well, you've come to the right place. Have you been doing any exercise lately?

A. I’m afraid not.
B. OK. We’ll give it slow start. Which type of exercise do you enjoy doing?

A. I like doing aerobics, but I hate jogging. I don’t mind doing some weight-lifting, though.
B. Great, that gives us plenty to work with. How often can you work out?

A. Two or three times a week would be good.
B. Why don’t we start with an aerobics class twice a week followed by a little weight lifting?

A. Sounds fine to me.
B. You’ll need to start slowly, and build up gradually to three or four times a week.

A. OK. What kind of equipment will I need?
B. You’ll need a leotard and some sneakers.

A. Is that all? How do I sign up for the classes?
B. You’ll need to enroll yourselves first and then you can choose which classes fit your schedule best.

A. Great! I can’t wait to get started. Thanks for your advice. No problem. I’ll see you in aerobics class!

B CONVERSATION AT THE BOOK SHOP

 

Pinky:                   Excuse me! Do you have Oxford Learner’s Dictionary of English?
Bookseller:         yes Madam! Would you like to have the hardbound edition or the Paperback edition?

Pinky:                   What is the difference? Can I see the book?
Bookseller:         The hardbound edition is priced hundred rupees more. There is, however, no difference in         the contents of the two editions. Here you are Madam. Please go through them yourself.

Pinky:                   Thank you. I shall take this paperback edition.
Bookseller:         Very well Madam, anything else?

Pinky:                   Thanks. Are you giving some discount on the purchase of books?
Bookseller:         Of course. We are giving a ten percent discount on the printed price of every book.

Pinky:                   That is really very good. Please give me this dictionary.
Bookseller:         Here is your packet, Madam. Please make the payment at the counter. Thanks for your visit.

Pinky:                   Thank you very much.

C CONVERSATION IN THE LIBRARY

 

Deepu :                I wish to borrow these two books, please.
Librarian:             Very well! Let me see! I can give you only this one. The other one is only for reference. You cannot take it home.

Deepu:                 I am sorry I didn't see the label on it.
Librarian:             you can sit here and refer it in the library itself.

Deepu:                 May I, then, borrow another book?
Librarian:             Of course, you may! You may take these three books, if you like.

Deepu:                 That will be better. I may , in that case, consult this book for some time and get the books issued later on.
Librarian:             Of course, you can do that.

Deepu:                 Thank you very much.
