M: Alice! So nice to see you. I thought you went to New York. Why are you still here in London?
W: It was my sister who went to New York. And she’s in Chicago now. I’ve been here the whole time.
M: Linda, have a taste of this cake and tell me what you think.
W: Okay. Hmm. I’m afraid it has gone bad. When did you buy it?
M: Excuse me, isn’t the staff meeting at 9:30? I’ve been waiting here for ten minutes, but nobody showed up.
W: You’re in the wrong room. It’s one floor up.
M: Oops! Thank you.
M: Hey, you come to watch the movie again. Weren’t you here yesterday?
W: Oh, yes, I saw it last week and I saw it again yesterday. I always see my favorite movies four or five times.
M: Here’s your ticket. Have a nice time.
W: Bob, your trip sounds wonderful. But I have to go now. My biology class starts in a few minutes.
M: Oh, sorry, Caroline. I didn’t mean to hold you up.
W: It’s hot today. I’d like to have some ice cream. Do you want some, dear?
M: No, thank you. Do you know the danger you face when eating ice cream?
W: Yes, gaining weight.
M: No, not that. Have you heard about brain freeze?
W: No, what’s that?
M: For many people, eating ice cream or drinking an icy drink too fast can produce a terrible headache. It usually hits in the front of the brain. People also call it “ice cream headache”.
W: Okay. I see. You know what? After all these years, you sound more and more like my father.
W: Mike, what lessons did you have at school this morning?
M: We had art, but we didn’t go to the classroom. Ms. Green took us to visit the museum in town.
W: How come? What did you do there?
M: We looked at paintings by famous artists.
W: I wish I had been with you. Did anything attract you?
M: A lot. But my favorite painting was by Picasso. It looked very strange.
W: Did Ms. Green explain something about the paintings?
M: Yes, and after that we made pictures for a competition. I drew a picture of Ms. Green. It looked like a Picasso painting.
W: Did she like it?
M: Ms. Green wasn’t very pleased, and she thought it dull. So, I didn’t win.
M: Cindy, as a working mother, how do you balance work and family?
W: It takes skills. It’s an art, I should say. But raising a kid while working is not as hard as most people think.
M: You mean it’s not difficult?
W: No, if you know how to share your responsibilities properly. My husband does more housework, and I take more care of our kid. I try to spend as much time with our kid as possible. She joins me in my daily activities.
M: What do you mean?
W: Working as a model, I do a lot of exercise every day to stay fit, and I encourage our kid to do it with me. It’s like play to her. As a result, I’m fit, she’s fit, and we spend time together.
M: I see. What else do you do together?
W: Things like reading picture books and going to the park.
M: I really like your ideas.
M: Nice to meet you, Jennifer. Can you tell us a few things about yourself? Perhaps your work experience.
W: I’m a university student in my final year, and I major in English. I’ve had several part-time jobs, including office work and sales.
M: What was your office work about?
W: I worked at the reception desk and did some paperwork.
M: What did you learn there?
W: I received phone calls and met customers most of the time. And I supported staff from different departments at times. So, I learned to deal with various kinds of people.
M: Did you apply any of the knowledge you got at university?
W: Yes, I think I did use some of the language knowledge.
M: What has been your worst experience at work?
W: Well, once I met a customer who came to make a complaint. I tried my best, but he was just being unreasonable. I had to refer him to my manager. It was a hard day.
M: Okay. Now, do you have any questions for us?
W: No, not at the moment.
M: Thank you, Jennifer. We have a number of people applying for this position, and we will call you with our decision within two weeks.
W: Okay, thank you.
