Lucy: How about the new Steven Spielberg’s film? I’ve heard it’s really exciting.
Carol: Who’s Steven Spielberg?
Ronald: You know. He directed Jaws, E.T., and Jurassic Park.
Carol: Oh, Jurassic Park was boring. The book by Michael Crichton was fascinating, but the film was terrible!!
Lucy: Well, I’m interested in that new Johnny Depp movie. It’s a romance. It’s been playing for about a month.
Carol: Now that sounds good. I’ve never seen him in a romance, and I think he’s a wonderful actor!!
Lucy: You never saw Johnny Depp in Benny and Joon? That’s one of my favourite movies of all time!
Carol: Actually, I didn’t see that.
Lucy: It was OK.
Ronald: I saw it, too. And I thought it was awful.
Lucy: Well, I’ll call the cinema and find out what time this new movie starts. Hello. Could you tell me what time the new Johnny Depp movie is playing tonight? Oh,really? Oh. OK, thanks.
You guys won’t believe this. The new Johnny Depp’s movie just finished playing last night!!

3. Read the story and then say what your idea of an interesting life is. How can modern people make their life more exciting and not turn themselves into coach potatoes?
A husband and wife come home from work, exhausted and stressed out. They don’t feel like preparing a real dinner, so they cook something in the microwave. Then they sit down on the couch for an evening, mesmerized by the TV set. Hours later, after having fallen asleep, they wake up and stumble off to bed. Each day they continue to do the same thing: get up, go to work, come home, grab a bite, then sit down and vegetate in front of the TV set. Does this sound like you? If so, are you satisfied with your existence? Isn’t there more to life than being a couch potato?
