    Daily English 156 - Rumors and Secrets

    Daily English 156 - Rumors and Secrets

    Script:

    Jack: So, what do you think of the new guy?

    Kate: Oh, you mean Bernard? He’s okay, I guess. Why?

    Jack: Well, I heard that he left his last company under mysterious circumstances. I tried to find out more from Libby, but she was very hush-hush about it.

    Kate: I’m not surprised. Libby doesn’t like to gossip, unlike some people…

    Jack: I’m not gossiping. I just like to know more about the people I work with.

    Kate: Okay, but don’t start any rumors. Bernard seems nice and I think we should give him a chance.

    Jack: Don’t worry. I’ll cut him some slack, but I want to know what skeletons are in his closet.

    Kate: Take it from me. You won’t find any dirty little secrets and you may make an enemy of Bernard in the process.

    Jack: You’re probably right but I wonder what Nathan knows…

    Daily English 155 - A Good Review of a Play

    Daily English 155 - A Good Review of a Play

    Script:

    I invited Bruce to a play at the Mark Taper Forum and we got there a little early. We handed our tickets to the woman at the door and found our seats.

    Megan: I’m glad we got here early to find our seats. I know that this is a sold out performance.

    Bruce: The cast is supposed to be really good. I read a rave review of the play in the paper last week. The review said that the leads are perfectly cast and the directing is inspired. Federica saw it a couple of weeks ago and she said that the staging and the costumes were really something to see.

    Megan: I’m really glad. The last time I came to a play at this theater, it was a bomb. The two lead actors weren’t up to their parts and the whole production was amateur. It closed early after only two weeks.

    Bruce: That won’t happen with this play. Hey, they’re dimming the lights. The curtain should be going up any minute

    Daily English 154 - Using Email

    Daily English 154 - Using Email

    Script:

    One of the first things I do each morning is to check my email. I open the email program on my computer and I check for new messages. It usually takes only a few seconds for my new messages to download from the server into my inbox unless there’s a large attachment. I can then click onto each new message to read it.

    I reply to messages or forward them to someone else. The important messages I save by putting them into one of my mailboxes. The unimportant ones I just delete.

    I really hate getting spam. Luckily, my email program allows me to set up filters so that spam messages are put into a separate mailbox automatically. I usually scan the messages to make sure real messages weren’t put into the mailbox by mistake and then I put them in the trash.

    I don’t know what I would do without email, but I’m constantly checking it for new messages. I’m not sure if it’s a blessing or a curse. I suppose it’s both.

    Daily English 153 - A Complaint Letter to a Tour Company

    Daily English 153 - A Complaint Letter to a Tour Company

    Script:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I am writing regarding a tour that my wife and I took with your company on February 26, 2006. The brochure stated that we would see some of the most interesting sights of the city. Since we had visited the city before, we looked forward to seeing some new attractions.

    On the morning of February 26, our tour guide picked us up in a small van. It did not look like any tour bus I had ever seen. Our tour guide drove us to the waterfront area and said that we could explore the area on our own. The tour guide said that he had to leave for a short time to arrange for our lunch.

    By the time the tour guide came back, three hours had gone by! I was very angry and confronted him. I told him that this was the worst tour I had ever been on.

    I am asking for a complete refund of the price of the tour. Please send a check to the address above for $150.00 at your earliest convenience. I have enclosed a copy of the receipt for the tour.

    Sincerely,
    Kayne East
