Conversation

Making Appointments

Dialog 1

NURSE: (answering telephone) Good morning, Dr. Anderson’s office. May I help you? MR. BATES: I’d like to make an appointment to have the dentist look at my teeth. NURSE: Let’s see. I can arrange for you to see the doctor two weeks from now. MR. BATES: Can’t I come in tomorrow? NURSE: I’m afraid Dr. Anderson won’t be able to see you then. His appointment book is filled for the next couple of weeks. MR. BATES: Oh, but I don’t have to see him. I’ll just leave my teeth in his office and he can look at them when he has time. They’re false teeth!

Dialog 2

ALLEN: Can you use a typewriter and other office machines? SALLY: No, but I’d be glad to learn how to use them. MR. ALLEN: Yes, I see. This is a permanent position. Can you work every day from nine to five? SALLY: Oh, no. I’m a student at the university and I have to study most of the time. I can only work part-time. MR. ALLEN: I couldn’t possibly hire you.

SALLY: Well, I thought you might be able to arrange something special for your daughter, Dad.
