河北专接本英语常见情景对话(三)(

1.A: Beautiful day, isn‘t it?
B: Yes, it‘s not like what the radio said at all.
A: I wish it would stay this way for the weekend.
B: As long as it doesn‘t snow!
2.A: It seems to be clearing up.
B: It‘s such a nice change.
A: I really don‘t think this weather will last.
B: Let‘s just hope it doesn‘t get cold again.
3.A: It looks it‘s going to be sunny.
B: Yes, it‘s much better than yesterday.
A: They say we‘re going to get some rain later.
B: Oh, let‘s just hope it stays warm.
4.A: I think it‘s going to be a nice day.
B: It‘s certainly a big improvement over yesterday.
A: But it‘s supposed to get cloudy and windy again this afternoon.
B: Well,the worst of the winter should be over.
十二.Asking for Change换零钱

2.A: Sorry to bother you, but do you have change for a one?
B: I‘ll have to look. What do you want it for?

B: I can give you quarters, if that‘ll help.
3.A: Pardon me, but I was wondering if you could break a one.
B: Let me look. What do you need?
A: I need the change for the stamp machine.
B: I think dimes and quarters will do.
4.A: Excuse me, could you give me change for a dollar?
B: I‘ll see what I have. What do you need it for?
A: I want to get cigarettes.
