  Long Conversation

  Conversation One

  W: Bob, do you know who I saw the other day? Old Jake, looking terribly depressed. Did he get pensioned off at last?

  M: Yes. They made him retire after 50 years at sea. He is pretty upset about it, but what can you do? He really is pasted。

  W: He is all alone, isn't he?

  M: Yes, his wife has been dead for years. They had one daughter, Dories. But she went off to town as soon as she left school. And he hasn't heard from her since. I hear she is making good money as a model。

  W: Maybe someone could get in touch with her. Get her to come back for a while to help?

  M: I don't suppose she come. She never got on with her father. He is bit of a tough character and she is rather selfish. Oh, I expect old Jake will get by. He is healthy at least, comes into a clinic for a check regularly。

  W: Are you his doctor?

  M: No, my partner doctor Johnson is。

  W: That bad-tempered old thing?

  M: Oh, he isn't bad-tempered. He just looks it. He is an excellent doctor, taught me a lot, and he has a very nice family. His wife invites me over there to supper every week. Very pleasant。

  W: yes. I teach their daughter Pen at school. She is a bit careless and lazy about her school work, but a bright little thing and very popular with her age group。

  W: Hello, Mr. Summerfield. How are you today?

  M: Very well. Thank you, Ms. Green。

  W: What can I do for you?

  M: Well, unfortunately, there is a problem with the order we received from you yesterday. It seems we haven't seen the right quantity of manuals to support the telephone system。

  W: Oh, dear, that's bad news. I'm very sorry to hear that, and you don't know how many packs are without manuals?

  M: No, because we haven't opened every pack. But in several of those that have been opened there are none, no manuals。

  W: I'm very sorry about this inconvenience, Mr. Summerfield. We'll send out the manuals this afternoon by express mail entirely at our cost, and the manuals should arrive tomorrow or the day after at the latest。

  M: All of them, right?

  W: Yes. It maybe that some have them already, but we cannot be sure. So the best thing is to send out the manual for every pack。

  M: Yes. Yes, I see. That would be great。

  W: Please accept our apologies for this mix-up. I assure you we will do everything possible to find out why the mistake happened

  M: Right. Thanks for your swift action。

  Passage

  Passage 1

  Attracting and feeding wild birds are entertaining activities that have long been enjoyed by people all over the world. Feeding birds has become so popular that prepared feed mixtures are readily available. We feed birds for many reasons. Many pleasant hours can come from watching birds. A hobby often develops into a serious study of their habits. Accurate identification of birds is usually the first goal. But observations that an amateur bird-watcher can make are really limitless. There is, however, responsibility associated with bird feeding, including a disease hazard. Attracting numbers of birds continually to the same spot can be harmful to them, particularly species that pick food from the ground contaminated by the droppings of other birds. In winter feeding efforts are most satisfying to people and are of greatest benefit to birds. During this time when fewer natural foods are available and air temperatures are lower, extra feeding can keep a bird warm and well. Once begun, feeding should never stop during these lean months. If you start a local increase of birds, be prepared to do what may be required to eliminate hazards to those you want to befriend. A constant supply of food should be given until the cold is over and spring has come. If feeding is stopped during severe weather, birds used to relying upon the feeders must starve。
