600 - Talking About Sight

If you can't read this, then put on your glasses and listen to this episode on having bad eyes.

Slow dialogue: 1:07
Explanations: 2:45
Fast dialogue: 15:19

Sue: This medication I'm taking is messing with my vision. Everything is blurry.

Hamed: That's a good reason for you to stay home from work today.

Sue: I can't. I have to give a presentation this afternoon and I can't flake out on my coworkers.

Hamed: What good are you to them if you're blind as a bat?

Sue: Everybody else will have crystal clear vision, so all I have to do is to put in an appearance. Things may not be as sharp as I'd like them to be, but I can still make out people and objects – as long as they're really big.

Hamed: I don't think your coworkers are going to want you to blindside them today with your strange behavior. You're going to do more harm than good.

Sue: I can see well enough. I only see double if I move my head like this. Whoa…

Hamed: At this point, I don't care if you have X-ray vision. That medication is affecting more than your vision. It's impairing your better judgment!

Fast dialog: 21:10

I was looking forward to a quiet evening at home. As soon as I walked in the door, though, the phone rang.

Paolo: Hello.

Evelyn: Hi, could I speak to Tony?

Paolo: He's not here right now. Can I take a message?

Evelyn: Do you know when he'll be back?

Paolo: No, I don't.

Evelyn: Okay. I'll call back later. Thanks.
……
Ten minutes later, the phone rang again.

Paolo: Hello.

Pam: Hi, is Tony there?

Paolo: No, he's out.

Pam: Could I leave a message?

Paolo: Sure. Give me a second to get something to write with…Okay, I'm ready.

Pam: Could you tell him that Pam called and ask him to call me back as soon as he can.

Paolo: Does he have your number?

Pam: He should, but I'd better give it to you. It's 279-555-6347.

Paolo: Okay, I'll tell him.

Pam: Thanks.
…..

As soon as I put down the receiver, the phone rang again. I couldn't believe it.

Paolo: Hello.

Susan: Hi, is this Tony?

Paolo: No, I'm his roommate, Paolo. Tony's not here right now.

Susan: I need to get a hold of him. Do you have his cell number?

Paolo: Uh, yeah, I do, but I'm not sure he wants me to give it out.

Susan: Oh, I'm sure he'd want me to have it.

Paolo: I tell you what. Why don't I take your number and have him call you back?

Susan: I really need to get a hold of him right away.

Paolo: I'll give him your message as soon as he gets home.

Susan: Fine. This is Susan and my number is 742-555-3655. Please make sure he gets it. It's important. Bye.

Paolo: Bye.

As soon as she hung up, I took the phone off the hook for the rest of the night. I'd had enough of being Tony's answering service for one night!

124 - Asking for Clarification in a Business Meeting

Learn how to ask for clarification in English in this podcast.

Slow dialog: 0:54
Explanations: 2:29
Fast dialog: 12:46

I was negotiating a contract with a new business partner, and we had a meeting to clarify the terms.

Bill: If I understand the terms correctly, the length of the contract would be one year with a one-year option. Is that correct?

Ms. Samuels: Do you mean the contract for equipment rental or the one for training?

Bill: I was under the impression that both contracts had the same terms.

Ms. Samuels: Yes and no. Let me see if I can clarify that. The terms are the same except that the contract for training has a clause that allows for the cancellation after the first six months.

Bill: Could you elaborate on that?

Ms. Samuels: Sure. What I mean is that either side could cancel the training contract after the six months as long as it's in writing.

Bill: Let me see if I have that right. This contract is for six months of training, but if it isn't cancelled, continues for another six months. Is that right?

Ms. Samuels: Yes, that's right.

Bill: Okay, that's clear enough. Let's move on to the other terms . . .

110 - Hotel Reservations

Learn how to make a hotel reservation in English in this podcast.

Slow dialog: 1:27
Explanations: 4:21
Fast dialog: 14:53

I just finished a huge project at work and I needed some down time. I decided to take a short vacation. I liked the idea of a long weekend out of town. My friend Sara offered to let me crash at her place in San Francisco, but I decided to stay at a hotel instead. Sara has a couple of roommates and I thought it might be too crowded.

I called the toll- free reservation number for a major hotel chain. The reservation agent was very helpful, after I got through the long phone tree.

Agent: Dutton Hotels. How may I help you today?

Jeff: I wanted to check rates and availability for your San Francisco location.

Agent: Certainly, I can help you with that. Will that be the downtown or waterfront location?

Jeff: The waterfront location.

Agent: What date do you plan to check in?

Jeff: I'd like to check in on October 12th and check out the 15th.

Agent: Okay, let me see what we have. For how many?

Jeff: One. And, if possible, I'm looking for a non-smoking room.

Agent: Sure, we have a non-smoking queen with an ocean view for $189 or a standard room with a courtyard view for $139 a night.

Jeff: I'd like to book the standard room.

Agent: Okay, your last name?

Jeff: Rama.

Agent: And, your first name?

Jeff: It's Jeff.

Agent: Okay, I have you booked in a standard non-smoking queen, checking in on October 12th and departing the 15th. What major credit card would you like to use to guarantee the reservation?

Jeff: A Visa.

Agent: The number and expiration?

Jeff: It's 7388- 2424-3535- 1818 and the expiration is 05/08.

Agent: Your confirmation number is PD672. Is there anything else I help you with?

Jeff: No, that's all. Thanks.

Agent: Have a nice day and thank you for calling Dutton Hotels.

Let's not talk about the topic of today's episode right now. So, how's your day going?

Slow dialog: 1:25
Explanations: 4:00
Fast dialog: 18:29

Lila: Why aren't you dating? I have so many friends who would love to go out with you.

George: Let's change the subject. Talking about my love life isn't very interesting.

Lila: But really, you're not getting any younger and…

George: Moving on! Have you seen any good movies lately?

Lila: Listen, all of your friends are settling down and you don't want to go through life alone and lonely…

George: That reminds me, didn't you say that you were going to get another dog so that Rover isn't lonely when you're not home?

Lila: Forget about my dog. You remember Rachel, don't you? She just broke up with her boyfriend and she'd be perfect for you.

George: Speaking of Rachel, how is her mother? Wasn't she in the hospital?

Lila: If Rachel isn't your type, how about Amina? She has great legs and I know you're a leg man.

George: And now for something completely different…How is your diet coming along? Have you lost any weight yet?

Lila: I don't really want to talk about my weight.

George: But I think you're having trouble shedding those pounds, right? I have lots of suggestions on what you can do.

Lila: Anyway, as I said before, I don't really want to talk about my diet…

George: You need to cut out sweets if you want to lose weight. Are you eating too many sweets?

Lila: That's none of your business!

George: My sentiments exactly!

Fast dialog: 16:18

Stocker: Can I help you find something?

Meg: Yes, I'm looking for coffee.

Stocker: That's on aisle 3. Let me show you where it is.

Meg: Thanks. Hmm, I don't see the Jitters brand that I normally buy.

Stocker: It looks like we're out of stock. We should get another shipment next week.

Meg: Okay, I'll check back. I'm also looking for the Fructose brand soda, but I didn't see it in the soda aisle.

Stocker: I'm afraid that's been discontinued. Their parent company no longer makes soda.

Meg: Really? I love Fructose soda. How about the Mushy brand bread? I didn't see it when I checked the bread aisle.

Stocker: We no longer stock the Mushy brand. There were so quality control issues at the company, so we've pulled all of their products from the shelves. Can I help you find anything else?

Meg: No, I guess I'll just have to try some new brands. Oh, yes, do you carry Worm organic apples?

Stocker: We normally do, but they're out of season right now. We won't have any until early summer.

Meg: All of this shopping and I have nothing to show for it. I guess I'm going home empty-handed.

Stocker: We do have chocolate cakes and cookies on sale.

Meg: I'm there!

Slow dialog: 1:30

Fast dialog: 17:55

Pamela: You know that your tongue is hanging out of your mouth, right?

David: That's because I've never seen so many beautiful women in one place before. Why have I never been to this beach before? Look at her! She's a hottie!

Pamela: Isn't that what you said about that woman over there?

David: No, I said she's a babe. Look at the way she sways when she walks.

Pamela: Stop ogling her or her boyfriend or husband is going to come over here.

David: I'm not ogling. I'm admiring the perfection of the female body.

Pamela: You're undressing her with your eyes. Avert your gaze before you regret it. Oh, wow!

David: What?

Pamela: Check out that guy over there. Hello, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome!

David: That pretty boy over there? He's too into himself. Look at the way he's posing so every woman on this beach can get a look at him. He's nothing but an exhibitionist.

Pamela: And the women you've been ogling in the teeny tiny bikinis?

David: Those women? They're just showing off what God gave them!

Martin: What did you think of that movie?

Joanna: It was okay, but I'm not really into big-budget movies with a lot of special effects and big-name stars.

Martin: Oh, you're a film snob. I bet you only watch indie films made on a shoestring budget with low production values.

Joanna: No, that's not true. I just don't like crowd-pleasers that are predictable. I like movies that stretch the imagination and have some artistic value.

Martin: You mean you like those weird movies with no plot and a lot of strange characters. They're artsy, but leave you totally confused.

Joanna: I don't mind some ambiguity, if that's what you mean.

Martin: Well, I'm going to see the new Spiderboy movie next week. I don't suppose you want to come?

Joanna: Spiderboy? I've been looking forward to seeing that movie.

Martin: But it's a big-budget blockbuster.

Joanna: I can't watch artsy films all the time. Variety is the spice of life, don't you think?
