EXPECTING A PHONE CALL
Laurance-Was i hat the telephone ringing?
Soony- I didn't hear anything.
Laurance-I thought I heard it ring two or three times.
Soony- Sometimes when the windows are open, you can
hear the neighbors' phone.
Laurance-Well, I'm expecting an important phone call, and
I don't want to miss it.
Soony- Is it anything I should know about?
Laurance-Not really. It has something to do with work and
doesn't really affect us here at home.
Soony- Well, why don't you go ahead and do what you wanted
to do outside. I'll call you if the phone rings for you.
Laurance-Thanks. I think I will. I've been waiting so long
now I'm getting nervous. I need to relax outdoors.
MAKE A RESUME
Denise: Hi Toby, how are you doing? You don't look very well.
Toby: Hey Denise. I'm just sad because I can't find a job.
Denise: Yeah, it's hard to find a job right now. You need to have a really great resume
Toby: That's the problem. I don't have a resume yet!
Denise: Really? Well that's OK. I'll help you make one.
Professor: Yes, Winnie, without a resume he can't find a job. That's why he said he's upset.
Denise: First I need you to tell me what kind of experience you have.
Toby: Well, I worked at the campus book store one day per week.
Denise: Great! You can say you have lots of sales experience.
Professor: Exactly. Students have to study a lot, so usually they don't have time for full-time jobs.
Denise: So Toby, can you tell me exactly what you did at the book store?
Toby: There wasn't much work for me to do, so I just played on the Internet all day.
Denise: Oh! So you have strong computer skills! What else did you do?
Toby: Hmm .... I also talked with my co-workers a lot.
Denise: Great! Strong communication and people skills!
Denise: Alright, now tell me about your educational experience.
Toby: I majored in English.
