    Conversation: Bill: I got a new computer yesterday. Robert: You got a new computer? Bill: Yes, a new notebook computer. Robert: Why didn't you get a desktop computer? Bill: The notebook is light, and has a battery, so I can use it anywhere. I can use it on the train or the bus. Robert: Isn't the keyboard too small to use?

Bill: That's true, but my notebook computer is powerful enough for me. Robert: Aren't notebooks more expensive than desktop computers?

B: Yes, I went there last weekend. I want to go a few more times before the summer is over. What about you? Do you have any plans for the rest of the summer? A: I'll probably have a barbecue or two. I'd like to go to an amusement park at least once. And I want to see some fireworks. B: I'm going to see the fireworks at the park next Saturday with some friends. Why don't you come with us? A: Next Saturday? Thanks, but I can't. I have dinner plans with some friends. I'll probably see the fireworks at the end of August. B: That's OK, no problem. I am thinking of going to waterslide pools next Sunday. Are you interested? A: Sure, sounds like fun! Let's practice I'm going have a barbecue next Saturday.

    The Weather

    1:42

    As the conversation begins, we can hear heavy rain. When Mr. A says, "Nice weather," he is being sarcastic. A: Nice weather isn't it? B: Yeah, tell me about it. It's been raining cats and dogs for three days. I just hate the rainy season. A: Well, at least it's not too hot. What I hate the most is the hot and humid weather. B: I know what you mean. I hate it too when it's muggy. Also, the thunder and lightning scares me. I always feel like it's going to hit me! A: Nonsense! Anyhow, I'm looking forward to the fall. The air is clean and crisp. It's my favorite time of the year. B: That's true. It is nice then. But I prefer the spring. I like to see the flowers blooming and the trees coming back to life again. Everything smells so nice in the spring. Also we can see the cherry blossoms. A: Spring is nice, but I like winter, too. B: What do you like about winter? It's cold and dark all the time! A: I don't know. I guess I like brisk weather. I also like to go skiing and skating. More available on our website: www.eltpodcast.com
