Reading Practice

There are some people who just can’t make up their minds by themselves. They frequently ask the advice of their friends and then do the opposite of what their friends have suggested. Есть люди, которые просто не могут составить свое мнение сами по себе. Они часто спрашивают советы своих друзей, а затем делать противоположное тому, что их друзья предложили.

My brother Tom is such a person. He can never decide what to do, and is always asking my opinion. I try to help him as well as I can, but he never takes my advice. Yesterday I answered his question in a different way. Мой брат Том такой человек. Он никогда не может решить, что делать, и всегда спрашивает мое мнение. Я стараюсь, чтобы помочь ему, а как я могу, но он никогда не берет мой совет. Вчера я ответил на его вопрос по-другому.

“Look,” he said, showing me a letter. “What do you think I ought to do?” The letter was an offer of a job. It seemed to be an excellent opportunity for a young engineer. Tom would be sent to Africa to work. The job would pay very well, and he would be able to travel and visit many interesting places. “Смотри”, сказал он, показывая мне письмо. “Что вы думаете, что я должен делать?” Письмо было предложение работы. Казалось, что это отличная возможность для молодого инженера. Том будет направлен в Африку для работы.Работу будут платить очень хорошо, и он сможет отправиться в путешествие и посетить много интересных мест.

“What do you think, Bill?” he asked. “Should I go?” If I were to accept the job, I’d have to stay in Africa for two years. I might have to stay longer. But it would be wonderful experience for me. What should I do?” “Что вы думаете, Билл?” спросил он. “Должен ли я идти?” Если бы я принял работу, я должен был бы остаться в Африке в течение двух лет. Я мог бы остаться дольше. Но было бы замечательный опыт для меня. Что я должен делать? “

“Don’t go,” I told him. “You’d be very unhappy.” “Don’t go?” he looked very surprised at my answer. As you’ve probably guessed, Tom accepted the offer. I don’t know if it has occurred to him that I actually wanted him to take the job. “Не ходи”, сказал я ему. “Вы были бы очень недовольны”. “Не ходи”? он выглядел очень удивлен моим ответом. Как вы уже, наверное, догадались, Том принял это предложение. Я не знаю, если он подумал, что я на самом деле хотел, чтобы взяться за эту работу.

CONVERSATION

Dialog 1

DAVE: Would you like to go to the movies with me tonight, Jean? JEAN: Thanks, Dave. I’d like to go very much, but there’s a possibility I’ll have to work at the library. DAVE: How soon will you know? JEAN: I should know this afternoon. Why don’t you call me up later? DAVE: All right. If you finish your work early, perhaps we can still go somewhere tonight. JEAN: Fine. Suppose I don’t get finished in time. Would you be able to go tomorrow night? DAVE: Sure, I can go tomorrow night, too.

Dialog 2

CHUCK: Will you be going home for Christmas this year, Nancy? Nancy? NANCY: I want to go, but I don’t know if I’ll have enough money by then. CHUCK: You live in Portland, Oregon, don’t you? Portland, Oregon, NANCY: That’s right. And the plane fare is very expensive. CHUCK: Why don’t you go by train? It would be cheaper than the plane. NANCY: Yes, but I don’t care for trains very much. CHUCK: How about the bus? That’s not very expensive, either. NANCY: I’m never comfortable on a bus, and it takes such a long time. CHUCK: Well, you can do one of two things, then. Either start saving your money for the plane fare, or start walking now.
