Hearing and Writing-(听和写)
A：Tell me about your English class, Mary.
B：Well,yesterday the teacher wrote some sentences on the board.The first was "if you can't produce the sounds of a language acceptable, then you can't really hear them when other people make them".Next he worte, "if you can't hear the sounds of a language then you probably can't write the language well.Your inadequate pronunciation contributes to making your writing substandard."
A：Do you think that's right?
B：I don't know, Bob. I'll tell you when the course is over.
A：Excuse me, could you help me?
B：Yes. What seems to be the problem?
A：Well, I was wondering if anyone has turned in a passport.
B：I'm afraid not. Have you lost your passport?
A：I think so. I can't find it anywhere in my hotel room, and I remember the last place I used ityesterday was in this department store.
B：Where exactly did you use your passport in the store?
A：In the suit-dress department. I had to show it to pay for these dresses with my traveler's checks.
B：Well, let me call the suit-dress department to see if they've found a passport.Sorry-your passport's not been turned in there, either.
A：Then what shall I do?
B：You can fill in this lost property report, and I'll keep my eye out for it. Those kinds of things usually turn up eventually, but I suggest you contact your embassy and tell them about your situation, so they can issue you a new passport in case it doesn't show up.
A：You're right. Do you have a pen?
B：Here you are.
A：Oh, I seem to lose something every time I travel.
