M: Sherry, how are you doing with your thesis?
W: Oh my thesis. That's something I definitely don't want to talk about right now. I finished my first draft some time ago. But my supervisor said I should do more research if I want to achieve the quality that he expects of me.
Q: What do we learn from the conversation about the woman's thesis?
W: I can't believe Karen is late for such an importance occasion as a job interview. I reminded her time and again yesterday.
M: You should have known her better by now. Everything you tell her goes in one ear and out the other.
Q: What does the man imply?
W: Hi, Joe, I wonder if you could do me a favor and tell the professor I've lost my voice. So I can't attend this morning's class. I need time to study for tomorrow's exam.
M: I don't think it's wise to say so. Since you're not going to give the lecture, you might as well simply skip the class and apologize to the professor later.
Q: What will the woman probably do?
M: After high school, I'd like to go to college and major in business administration. I really like power and enjoy telling people what to do.
W: You're very ambitious. But I'd rather spend my college days finding out what children are interested in. Child's psychology is for me.
Q: What do we learn from the conversation?
M: It seems the restaurants here have little business these days.
W: That's true. But ours is a scenic resort. And this is not the busy season. When summer comes, you'll see armies of tourists waiting in line in order to get a seat.
