A I like the big, dramatic events at the Olympics.
B So do I. I’m also looking forward to the marathon. It’s one of the biggest events. It’s a classic race.
A I agree. And it’s something everyone can see.
B Yes, the race goes all through Beijing. There will be thousands watching it on the streets.
A It’s such a tough race!? Forty kilometres .
A 这是多么艰苦的比赛！40公里. . .
B I know. I hope it isn’t too hot when they run the marathon. It’s better when it’s cooler.
A What’s it like working in the restaurant?
B It’s OK. It’s in a restaurant in one of the big hotels.
A That sounds quite good. Is it hard work?
B Well, it depends if the restaurant is very busy. But I enjoy it. I like seeing lots of different people all the time.
A Yes, I suppose a hotel restaurant must be a quite good place to work.
B Yes, it is. And it’s a good way for me to earn extra money.
A So, you are from Los Angeles?
B No, that’s where my older brother lives now. He’s in Los Angeles. But I’m from San Francisco.
A And that’s where your parents and younger brother live?
B Yes, my parents live in San Francisco. It’s our hometown.
B 是的， 我的父母住在旧金山。那里是我们的家乡。
A Los Angeles isn’t too far from there. Your older brother is quite near.
B Yes, LA and San Francisco are pretty close. It’s not a big trip.
B 是的， 洛杉矶和旧金山相当近。一小段路程而已。
A Hi! Can you help me, please? I’m looking for a pharmacy.
B There’s one up there, on the left.
A How far? Is it a long way?
B No, it’s quite near. See that big building on the right – that’s the Xinhua Bookstore. It’s directly opposite the Xinhua Bookstore, on the other side.
A Oh, good. That’s very near. Thanks for your help.
B No problem. You’re welcome.
A Where did you live before you came to Beijing?
B In Harbin. I was born and grew up in Harbin.
A Ah, I know Harbin. It’s cold there!
B Yes, it can be very cold, especially in winter. Anyway, then I left Harbin and moved to Beijing.
A Was it a big change for you when you came to Beijing?
B Yes – apart from the weather, Harbin was a smaller city. I still miss Harbin, ?but Beijing is more exciting.
A Your weekend does sound busy! Mine was the exact opposite.
B Why? What was yours like?
A My weekend was quiet. Very quiet. I did almost nothing.
B Why? I thought you were going out. I thought you had big plans for the weekend.
A I think I had a little bit of the flu. I didn’t feel too well so I spent most of the weekend in bed. I didn’t go out or do anything.
B Oh, that’s a pity. At least you had a good rest!
A Are you going to the big concert next weekend?
B I’d love to! Where is it?

A Yes, some are very expensive. But they also have cheaper tickets. It depends on where you sit.
B You’re right – I must decide today.
A Shall we go and see the new movie?
B Yes. I prefer seeing a movie at the cinema rather than on DVD.
A So do I. It’s much better on the big screen.
B Where shall we go? Is there a good cinema near here?
B 咱们去哪里看？ 这附近有好电影院吗？
A Yes, there’s one not far from here. It’s about 5 minutes by taxi.
B Great. Let’s go. I like going out to the cinema.

A Do you go to a special driving school for lessons?
B Yes, and it’s not cheap. But I really want to learn.
A I can understand that. Everybody wants to drive.
B It would make such a big difference to my life, especially going to work everyday.

B It’s busy in the rush hours, but otherwise it’s the same as any big city.

B What do you mean? Do you think it’s dangerous?
A No, I just mean it’s different. You have to be very careful of traffic in Beijing.
B I think I know what you mean. You never know what to expect.
A Is there a big difference between driving in Beijing and driving in London?
B Well, the biggest difference is that in Britain we drive on the left. Here, you drive on the right side of the road.
A Of course. I forgot! This must be very strange for you then?
A 当然， 我忘了！你对这个一定感到很奇怪吧？
B Not really. I’m used to it. In Europe and America, they drive on the same side as China.
A So, is it only Britain that drives on the left?
B No, not at all. Hong Kong, Japan, India – they’re all the same as Britain. They drive on the left too.
A Hi, Yanjing. Can we have a word?
B Yes, but this week is difficult. I have meetings all day today and Thursday and Friday.
B And a big meeting early next week.
A When's your meeting next week?
B It's on Tuesday. Tuesday morning.
A Right. Can we get together on Monday?
B Fine. Monday afternoon is good for me. What time?
A My youngest daughter arrives tomorrow.
B Ah. Is it her first visit?
A Yes. She can't wait to see everything, especially the shops and clothes markets. She loves shopping for clothes.
B I understand. She's a teenager!
A Where should I take her?
B Well, there's a really big shopping mall in Haidan. And you could take her to the Silk Market – that’s very central.
A Canada is a big country, I believe.
B Yes, it is really huge, but China has a much bigger population.
A And you come from Toronto. Is Toronto a big city?
B Yes, but Beijing is much bigger than Toronto.
A Maybe Toronto is nicer than Beijing?
B They're both good cities. They're just different.
A You must hate our traffic in Beijing.
B No, not at all. I come from New York, remember. Believe me, we get some very bad traffic jams.
A But our traffic is worse, surely.
B I'm not so sure. It's pretty bad in most big cities. I think the traffic in New York is worse.
A Really? You surprise me.
B You must come and see for yourself one day.
A What kind of work would you like to do?
B Ideally, I’d like to work in a big company. I’d love a career in business.
A There’s lots of interesting jobs in the business world.
B Yes, I think I need to study for a business degree.
A Yes, that would certainly help. It would be good to do an MBA.
