Mr. Wei： I saw your advertisement in this morning’s New York Times, and I’d like to take a look at the apartment.
Mrs. Jones: Come in, please. It’s on the second floor. This way, please.
Mr. Wei： How much does the apartment rent for?
Mrs. Jones: It’s three hundred dollars a month…Here we are. This is the living room. There are windows in every room. The kitchen is on your left.
Mr. Wei： There are two bathrooms. That’s great!
Mrs. Jones: By the way, we don’t allow any pets here.
Mr. Wei： I see. What about decorating?
Mrs. Jones: If you decide to move in, we will repaint the apartment on the condition that you sign a two-year lease.
Mr. Wei： That means if I sign a one-year lease, there will be no redecorating at all?
Mrs. Jones: That’s right.
Mr. Wei： If I decided to take it, how soon could I move in?
Mrs. Jones: You can move in any time you like. As you can see, it’s already cleaned up.
Mr. Wei： Good. Er, Mrs…?
Mrs. Jones: Jones.
Mr. Wei： Mrs. Jones, I like this apartment very much, but I’d like to know my wife’s and kids’ opinions. I’ll come back this evening with them. Will that be convenient?
Mrs. Jones: That’s fine with me.
Mr. Wei： This is my business card. Thanks very much, Mrs. Jones. We’ll see you tonight.
