M: Oh my god! The heat is simply unbearable here! I wish we’d gone to the beach instead.
W: Wow, with the museums and restaurants in Washington, I’d be happy here no matter what the temperature.
Q: What does the woman mean?
M: How’s the new job going?
W: Well, I’m learning a lot of new things, but I wish the director would give me some feedback.
Q: What does the woman want to know?
W: Can you help me work out a physical training program John?
M: Sure, but whatever you do, be careful not to overdo it. Last time I had two weeks worth of weightlifting in three days and I hurt myself.
Q: What does the man suggest the woman do?
M: I have an elderly mother and I’m worried about her going on a plane. Is there any risk?
W: Not if her heart is all right. If she has a heart condition, I’d recommend against it.
Q: What does the man want to know about his mother?
M: Why didn’t you stop when we first signaled you at the crossroads?
W: Sorry, I was just a bit absent-minded. Anyway, do we have to pay a fine?
Q: What do we learn from the conversation?
M: I’m no expert, but that noise in your refrigerator doesn’t sound right. Maybe you should have it fixed.
W: You’re right. And I suppose I’ve put it off long enough.
Q: What will the woman probably do?
M: I did extremely well on the sale of my downtown apartment. Now I have enough money to buy that piece of land I’ve had my eye on. and build a house on it.
W: Congratulations! Does that mean you will be moving soon?
Q: What do we learn about the man from the conversation?
W: My hand still hurts from the fall on the ice yesterday. I wonder if I broke something.
M: I’m no doctor. But it’s not black and blue or anything. Maybe you just need to rest it for a few days.
