Brian:Yes,I’ve nearly finished,June.I’m sure we will win something this week.
June:You always say that,but we never win anything!What will you do
if you win a lot of money?
Brian:If I win a lot of money ,I shall buy you a mink coat.
June:I don’t want a mink coat!I want to see the world.(见世面)
Brian:All right.If we win a lot of money,we shall travel around the world
and we shall stay at the best hotels.Then we shall return home and buy a big
house in the country.We shall have a beautiful garden and…
June:But if we spend all that money we shall be poor again.What shall we do then?
Brian:If we spend all the money,we shall try and win the football pools again.

A: What do think about the advantages and disadvantages of TV?
B: I think it's good for our life.

B: It can provide us with abundant information,Such as latest news over the world,history,culture and interesting stories.It can broaden our eyes easily so that we could acquire knowledge out of books.
A: Maybe,you are right.but don't you think when you watch TV,it is easy for you to ignore he time being exhausted rapidly.At present,there are increasingly interesting TV programs which actually have little meaning for us, or even are bad for mental health.Such as adult films.
B: So,we must learn to choose an appropriate program when we are watching TV.As for children,they can watch TV with their parents' company or admisio,while,as for adults,they should beware which is suitable or which is not suitable for themselves.If people do like these, TV's advantages I have mentioned must bring about in our life.
A: But few adults could control themselves and few children have their parents' company when they are watching TV.Most people spend too much time in TV programs,fogetting their own work and study,even losing their sleeping time.It is bad for life.
B: As is known to all,TV is inevitable for us.When people come home from work,they always watch wonderful TV programs together with their family members,not only to relax themselves,but also to go information outside.TV brings to them.
