Read the dialogues. Introduce your new groupmate to your sister/mother/cousins.



- Let me introduce myself to you. I am George Wiler.

- How do you do, Mr. Wiler! My name is John Bush.

- How do you do, Mr. Bush! I am a teacher of biology. What is your trade?

- I am an agronomist from California.

- Pleased to know you, Mr. Bush.

- Glad to get acquainted with you, Mr. Wiler.

- Allow me to introduce Benjamin Larke to you, Mr. Flake.

- How do you do, Mr. Flake! Glad to meet you.

- How do you do, Mr. Larke! Pleased to know you. How do you like our city?

- I like it very much, though I haven't seen much of it.

- I can help you. We'll make a car tour of the city one of the days.

- It will be great!

- Alice, is the name of William Porter familiar to you?

- I don't think so.

- Hi, Alice!

- Hi, William! How are you?

- Never felt better in my life. Thanks. How are you?

- Fine, thank you.

- Mr. Medison, this is Mr. Judson.

- We've met before, haven't we?

- Sure. We played a game of tennis the other day.

- And you won the game.

- That's right.

1.13 Look through the dialogue. Tell about George Scott & Peter Brook.

- Your name is George Scott, isn't it?

- Yes, it is. I am an electronic engineer. I live and work in New-York. And what's your name?

- My name is Peter Brook. I am an editor. I live and work in San- Francisco.

- You are married, aren't you?

- Oh, yes. I am married and I've got two daughters.

- What a coincidence! I've got two daughters, too: Helen and Mary. What are your daughters' names?

- They are Susan and Jane. Susan is ten years old and Jane is eight. They both go to a private school. Do your daughters go to school?

- Not yet. Helen is five years old and Mary is three.

- They are at home, aren't they?

- Sure. My wife Joan doesn't work now. She runs the house and looks after the children. Emily is the name of my wife. She is a designer. She adores her trade and dreams of going to her office again. But she can't for the time being.

- It's only natural. Nowadays very few women are satisfied with being housewives. My wife, whose name is Nancy, is a teacher of Russian. She works at a college.

- Do you have any brothers or sisters?

- Unfortunately not. I am the only child in the family. I've got a cousin who lives in Chicago. We are on friendly terms.

- I have got a sister. She is much younger than I am. She lives with our parents in Los Angeles. I've seen very little of her of late.

- Los Angeles is a beautiful city. My aunt lives there and I visit her from time to time.

- It's a long time since I went to Los Angeles.

- Too bad!

The Nechaev's Flat

The Nechaevs live a 10-storied block of flats in Leninskii Ave­nue. It is just across from the State Oil and Gas Academy. There are many business centres, offices, banks, shops and supermar­kets nearby. All that makes this place lively and crowded with peo­ple. But there is also an advantage of living here as it doesn't take you much time to do every-day shopping.

The Nechaevs have a three-room flat with all modern conven­iences: central heating, hot and cold running water, telephone, electricity and gas. The flat is on the 9-th floor so the view's terrific - a great part of the capital is under your feet. There is an elevator in the building and TV antenna on the roof.

The flat is rather big. There is an entrance hall, a kitchen, a bathroom, a toilet, a sitting-room, a bed-room and Volodya's room flat. The mother is very proud of the kitchen. It's repaired, well-equipped and nicely furnished. There is a modem Italian kitchen unit in the kitchen. It includes a gas-stove, a washing-machine, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and a microwave oven. The Nechaevs consider it the cosiest place in the flat. They often gather in it to­gether to have a cup of coffee and discuss what has happened in everybody's life.

The sitting-room is large and light. It has everything for a good rest in the day-time. There is a colour TV-set, a video cassette re­corder and a piano in it. There is a wall-unit, a sofa, 2 comfortable arm-chairs, a table with 4 chairs round it and a lamp-stand in the corner. The floor is covered with a nice thick carpet. The curtains on the window match the walls, the carpet and the furniture.

Volodya's room is the smallest one in the flat. There is a ward­robe, a sofa-bed, an old grandmother's armchair, a chair, a desk and book-shelves with lots of interesting books on them. There is a modern computer with Pentium processor, CD-ROM Drive, Sound Blaster and a microphone on the desk. In the comer of the room there is a small table with a tape-recorder on it.

The bedroom has 2 beds, a wardrobe, 2 night tables, 2 padded stools and a three-leaved mirror.
