When and where can I see you?" "Let's meet at the monument to Pushkin in the Square of Arts at five o'clock if it is convenient for you," I said. "All right," he an swered, "I shall be there."
What will you order?
Give me the menu, please.
Here you are.
Chicken soup for the first course.
For the second course I recommend you to take fried fish. It is very good.
All right, bring me fried fish.
Yes, bring me some potatoes, and then cheese, coffee and fruit.
MOTHER. Nick! Do you hear the alarm-clock?
NICK. Oh, I am so sleepy!
MOTHER. Well, that's what you always say. Now, get out of bed quickly.
MOTHER. Be quick, or you will be late for school.
NICK. No fear. I have a lot of time.
MOTHER. You forget that you have to brush your teeth and to wash your hands and face.
NICK. Mummy, I remember everything.
PETER. Are you coming my way?
JOHN. Yes, I am. How are you getting along?
PETER. Jolly well. How did you find the last test in geometry?
JOHN. Rather difficult. I am not very good at solving problems.
PETER. Why didn't you ask me to help you? I'll gladly do it.
JOHN. Oh, thanks a lot. I shall. Have you got a lot of home-work for tomorrow?
PETER. Yes. You know the time-table, Friday is always a bad day. We have six lessons tomorrow, and all the subjects are difficult. Besides, there will be questions from my little sister. She is not very good at sums.
JOHN. All right, then. I'll come to your place tomorrow evening, if you don't mind.
PETER. Let's make it tomorrow. I'll be waiting for you.
SUSAN. Good morning, doctor.
DOCTOR. Good morning, Susan. What's the matter with you?
SUSAN. I feel bad. I have a headache, and I am afraid I am running a temperature.
DOCTOR. Open your mouth and show me your throat. You have a bad cold, Susan. You must stay in bed for two days until your temperature is normal and you stop coughing.
SUSAN. How I hate being ill and staying in bed!
DOCTOR. But if you are not careful, you may fall ill with the flu or pneumonia. I'll prescribe some medicine.
SUSAN. Thank you, doctor. Good-bye.
JANE. May I come in?
KATE. Is that you, Jane? Come in! It is very good of you to come and see me. JANE. I came before, but you were too ill to see anybody. Did you get the flowers?
KATE. Surely, I did. It was very nice of you to send them to me.
JANE. How are you now?
KATE. Oh, I am much better, thank you. The doctor says that I shall be allowed to go out in a few days.
JANE. Do you miss school?
KATE. Very much. I am afraid I'll be lagging behind the group in my lessons now.
JANE. Don't think about it. We shall help you.
KATE. Thank you very much.
MICHAEL. I say, Bill, can you show me around a bit? I only came here two days ago and I haven't been anywhere as yet.
BILL. Of course, I shall do it with pleasure. Let's go at once. And let's invite Alice to come with us. She knows a lot about the places of interest here.
MICHAEL. That's a good idea.
BILL. Alice, can you come with us? We are going for a walk, and I want to show Michael some places of interest.
ALICE. No, I can't go with you, boys. I am sorry. Mother told me to buy some bread, and I forgot about it. I shall have to do it now. Go without me. I shall go with you some other time.
BILL. It's a pity. All right, Michael, let's go.
