Intro 简介




Dialogue 对话

Jeff:  Hey Marni, it’s a pretty nice day outside. What would you feel about going for a swim?

Marni:  I love swimming. That would be great. I’m not very good at it, though. I kind of doggy paddle and things like that. But if you’ll hold my hand through it, I’d love to go.

Jeff:  Just as long as we can go for a dip.

Marni:  Yes.

Jeff:  That’s generally how I enjoy swimming. I don’t swim for exercise normally, although I understand the benefits of it.

Marni:  Right, I don’t know how to do that either. I’m not a very advanced swimmer. But I do enjoy going for a dip. Should we go to a public pool or do you like going to the lake to go swimming?

Jeff:  I’m not a real huge fan of public pools, chlorine, itchy eyes. You can use your imagination for the rest. But the river or the lake, those aren’t necessarily clean these days either. But I prefer those.

Marni:  OK.

Jeff:  The natural environment.

Marni:  Well, let’s go for that.

Jeff:  Sounds good.
