简单英语情景对话：Listening to Music
Bobby：Do you like music?
Rachel：Well, it depends。
Bobby：Do you think this music is well-matched?
Rachel：Of couse yes!
Bobby：How about the lyrics?
Bobby：They bring back some of my childhood memories。
Rachel：Yeah! It’s so nostalgic. I love songs that take me to some places I haven’t been, or haven’t been for a long time. It’s fun and exciting。
Bobby：Of course, the rhythm is fantastic too. It makes me eager to dance。
Rachel：It’s full of energy。
Bobby：This song is really worth listening to and enjoying。
Rachel：It certainly is. It’s worth the Grammy Award it won。
Nicholas：What are you reading, Linda?
Linda：I’m reading a novel The Mill on the Floss, written by the famous novelist, George Eliot。
Nicholas：What’s it about?
Linda：It is mainly about the relationship about a brother and a sister, who live in a mill on river Floss. It describes their childhood and a dispute that causes them to separate. The book ends with them happily together again, but they were both killed in the flood。
Nicholas：Is it difficult to understand?
Linda：Not really, I would consider it easy。
Nicholas：Besides novels, are there any other types of literary works that you indulge in?
Linda：I really like short stories。
Nicholas：Have you read anything else besides literature?
Linda：Certainly I have. I like to read books on various subjects, and I read everything I can get my hands on in my spare time. I don’t want to idle away and waste my time。
Nicholas：I agree. People who don’t read are no better off than people who can’t read. I also agree that “Books are like food for the mind。”
简单英语情景对话：At the KTV
Julius：You’ve got a beautiful singing voice。
Samantha：It’s this high-tech equipment that doctors up my voice a little. Actually I’m tone-deaf。
Julius：Come on. You hit the high notes perfectly。
Samantha：Well, the echo and the stereo system helped a lot. And I know that song very well, so I didn’t need to pay attention to the subtitles, which helped as well。
Julius：You’re too modest. Pass me the catalogue. I’d like to see which song to choose… Wow, this place has a large selection of songs. I don’t know which to choose。
Samantha：Pick the one that you always sing in the shower。
Julius：Funny. Oh, I like this song. It’s by one of my favorite singers.
Samantha：Read me the index number。
Julius：1021. It’s a duet. Come on. Pick up the mic and sing along.
Samantha：No, I need a rest。
