Unit 27 In the Campus
Thanks and you too, I think.
I'd like to borrow a book on computers.
I'd like to apply for a library card.
I'd like to renew it for another week.
Can you show me how to find the books in the stacks?
Can you tell me how many books I can borrow at a time?
Can you tell me how long I can keep it?
You can find it in the card catalog.
If you only know the author,just look it up in the author catalog.
I'm afraid the book you want is checked out (taken,on loan,out).
Please consult the card catalog first.
Please return them by the due date.
Your book is two days overdue.You'll have to pay fines.
Has the bell gone?
Please pay attention.
Please come to the front of the class.
Open your books to page...
Put away your books.
Hand in your papers,please.
That's all for today.
Class is over.
May I ask a question?
Could you explain that again?
I'm sorry,but I couldn't follow you.
I'm sorry,but I'm still not clear about that point.
Let me see.I think it's...
I'm sorry,I don't know.
Work in class.
We shall read aloud.
Please answer my(his,her)questions.
Please make sentences with the word (phrase)...
Next,we shall play a game (do some exercise,etc.)
Who would like to try?
Please raise your hand.
For homework,do Exercise 1 and 2.
Review the last lesson.
Now let's recite the poem we learned last week.Any volunteers?
May I have a try?
Good.Please sit down.Did anyone catch any mistakes?
If I'm not mistaken.he said"hasn't"instead of"haven't".
You are right.
Who would like to answer?Clark?
Will you please repeat your question?
(repeats)Is that clear?
Yes,that's quite clear.(Answers the question)
Is that right class?
Oh,I'm sorry.I made a mistake.I should have said"The key is eight".
Excuse me.Can you tell me how to find some books on social science?
Sure.You see all these little drawers here and all the way around the walls?
These drawers contain cards desribing every book in our library.
To-gether they constitute the library's "card catalog".
You can see that each drawer runs from one part of the alphabet to another.
Fox example,this drawer goes from SCA to SCM.
So if I'm looking for a look called A History of Western Society,
I'd just look under "A".
No.You'd look under "W".
The articles "a" and "the" don't count in our alphabetization,
and cards are generally omitted for extremely com-mon words
and phrases such as "history of","introduction to","story of" and so forth.
What if I don't know the title of the book?
Well,you can look under the author's name.
Could you give me an example?
Suppose you want to find a book by your professor.William Smith.
You'd look under SMITH and then WILLIAM.
Since that's very sommon name,
you may have to go through several
"William Smith"until you come to the one
who wrote book on the subject
Hi.Bob!We've been working hard at our lessons for a fortnight.
So why don't we take it easy this weekend?
Okay!What do you suggest?
How about seeing a play?I hear Hamlet is on at the National Theater.
Is that so?Why not?
(looking at a newspaper)Oh,dear me!
There's no performance at the National theater this weekend.
So we have to go to cinema instead.
Let me see..um.Gone With the Wind.
It is on at six cinemas on Saturday night.
That sounds interesting.Which is the nearest?
Ah.The Royal,I think.
What time does it start?
Why don't we go to the 7:30 show?It is convenient to us,I think.
But we won't have enough time for dinner.
Do you want to go to the earlier or the later show?
Ah...I fancy going to the later show.
Then,there's a 9:30 show.
That's Okay,I think.
What are your weekend arrangements?
There're many things I can do on weekends.
What sort of things are you interested in?
I'm keen on talking short trips to nearby scenic spots.
More often than not,I go with some of my friends.
By the way,what are your favorites?
I love swimming and cycling.
OnSunday morning I have swimming practice for an hour.
In the afternoon,
I just ride my bike around the city
or along the country roads for almost two hours.
That's great!I think they do you a lot of good.Where do you swim?
Mostly in the city's swimming pool.
But on occasion,I go to the beach with friends.
Well,what do you do at leisure?
I'm fond fo dancing.
Good.You really know how to enjoy yourself.
