  H: Welcome here. Please follow me. Where would you like to sit, at a table or at the bar?

  S1: Well, we prefer to sit not far away from the bar.

  H: This way, please.

  S2: I like it here.

  S1: I do, too.

  W: Welcome to our Moon Star Club. Would you like something to drink?

  S2: Yes, I'd like a glass of ginger ale with ice. Richard, what would you like?

  S1: Do you have a dry white wine?

  W: How about a California Chablis?

  S1: Chablis will be fine.

  W: Here are your drinks. Please enjoy them.

  (The band plays Waltz)

  S1: Say, we've come here to dance but not to sit and listen. Why not dance?

  S2: That's just what I'm thinking about. This is my favorite dance music.

  S1: So it is with me. Let's do the Waltz.

  (They come into the pool and join the dancers.)

  S1: Now they're playing Foxtrot. Let's do the Foxtrot.

  S2: Okay, let's.

  G: Will you honor me with a dance, ma'am?

  S2: Sorry, I'm engaged for this Tango. (To her husband) I only accept your invitation. Now, let's tango.

  S1: My pleasure, my fair lady.

  S2: 0h, Richard, I'm a bit tired. I think I'll sit out the next dance.

  S1: Yes, let's take a rest. (He looks at his watch.) Oh, dear me. It's almost midnight. Let's go back to our room, shall we?

  S2: Yes, let's. (She waves to the hostess.) May I have the bill, please?

  S1: What if I am not a registered guest?

  H: In that case, each person will be at least charged 80 yuan, excluding drinks.

  H: Follow me, please. Is this table all right?

  S1: O.K. [The hostess puts the pencil and song order slip onto the table. waitress (W)]

  W: We have a good selection of cocktails, such as Bloody Mary, Pink Lady, Gin Sling, Gin Tonic and so on. What would you like, sir?

  S1: Four Gin Tonic.

  W: What about you, madam?

  S2: I'd like a glass of orange juice, please. Would you tell us what kinds of songs you have got here?

  W: We have Mandarin, Cantonese and Taiwanese songs, English songs, Italian songs, Japanese songs, and French songs. You name it, and we have it. You may consult the song list. Take your time. I'll be with you shortly. Here're your four Gin Tonic and one orange juice. Now, can I take your song order?

  S1: Yes. I'd like to sing the English song “My Heart Stays with You”。

  W: Yes, sir. Please wait a moment. When it's your turn, the D.J. will announce through the microphone.

  D. J.: May I have your attention, please? The next item is the English song “My Heart Stays with You”。 Mr Steward of Table 11 is welcome to the stage.

  S2: How fantastic your performance is! I'm so proud of you.

  S1: That's very kind of you to say so. (Looking at his watch.) Oh dear, do you remember I have an appointment with Mr Davis?

  S2: My God, I forgot it. Let's go immediately. (She waves to the waitress.) May we have the bill?

  W: Please sign your name here. The hotel will charge you when you leave.

  S1: Thank you.

  W: You're welcome. Good-bye.

  Part Three Mahjong

  [Scene: Mr Steward (S) and his friend Mr Davis (D) are approaching the Mahjong room. A hostess (H) comes to greet them.]

  H: Good evening, sir. Welcome to the Mahjong room.

  S: Mahjong, what is it?

  H: Mahjong is a traditional Chinese recreational instrument. It is composed of many pieces of blocks.

  S: Can we play mahjong now?

  H: Certainly, yes, sir. But you still need two other persons to play together. It is somewhat like playing cards.

  S: Really? Sounds interesting. Would you say something more?

  H: Ok. It needs four people to play mahjong. And if you are really interested in playing, we have a supervisor here who can teach you how to play with it and at the same time he'll tell you all the detailed regulations.

  S: What's the price?

  H: If it is in a single room, the price is 200 yuan till midnight, including small towels, tea and a dish of peanuts. Of course, you can order drinks, but that will be charged. If one would like to play in the hall where there are many other tables together, the price is much cheaper, only 50 yuan till midnight.

  D: Richard, I don't think we can learn to play mahjong at once. Besides, it seems very time-consuming.

  S: What a pity! Thank you very much. Maybe next time. Bye-bye.

  H: Next time, please have a try. Bye-bye.

  Part Four Bowling

  [Scene: Mr Smith (S) comes to the Bowling Center at Wuxi International Hotel. A host (H) is receiving him.]

  H: Good evening, sir. Welcome to the Bowling Center.

  S: Good evening. Would you please tell me the service hours of the bowling room?

  H: Certainly, sir. Bowling room is open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m……

  S: Oh, do you have any special regulations?

  H: Yes, we do. Persons in a vest or slippers or drunkards are not welcome in the bowling room.

  S: Do I need to wear special bowling shoes?

  H: Yes, sir. Players should wear special bowling shoes. The shoes are actually available in the bowling room. Besides, no food or drink can be brought into the service area. No smoking or slippery powder is allowed in the run-up area.

  S: By the way, can I bring my ten-year-old son with me to the bowling room?

  H: I'm afraid, you can't, sir. Children under 16 can not play bowling.

  S: Thank you very much for your detailed explanations.

  H: My pleasure.

  [Scene: John (J) and Mary (M) are on lane 8, the bowling alley of the hotel.]

  J: What's your highest score?

  M: My highest score is 230 points, which I got only twice. It's not the score that's important for me. It's the fun.

  J: Me too. My highest score is only 235. So it sounds like it's going to be an evenly matched game.

  M: I suppose so. What ball do you roll with?

  J: I prefer to bowl with an eight ball, which is light and easy to control. It spins well and hooks so as not to roll a gutter ball.

  M: I like a heavier ball. It's harder to bowl hook shots. I just bowl straight.

  J: I'll go up first.

  M: Yes, please. …… Oh, you hit a strike. Now it's my turn.

  J: Not too bad, you knocked eight pins down. But you are left with a 7, 10 split. Unless you can bowl a UFO-ball on this bowl, it is going to be impossible.

  M: …… No! It went straight through the wickets.

  (They keep on bowling and the scores alternate up.)

  J: Wow! Yes! A double strike. I'm very lucky. Come on, John.

  M: I wish I'm up on the luck. Oh, I've bowled my first turkey.

  J: Congratulations! Now let's see what I can do. …… That's terrible. I made a mistake during my delivery.

  M: You should hold your arm and wrist straight. If you don't have a solid wrist, you'll never be able to control the ball. …… Now it's my turn. What a pity. I hit a strike. But it's a foul-ball as my foot went over the foul line.

  J: The game is nearly even.

  M: I think I need more practice.

  J: Me too. Let's play bowling sometime next time.

  M: All right.
