A:Me,too. I have a class at 2 as well.
B: I’ve noticed you have a math book. Do you like the summer school here?
A: It’s pretty good. I think I’ve learned a lot.
B: Yeah, I only wish the class were a little smaller, but I like my teachers a lot. They are very kind and patient.
A: I see. By the way, where are you from?
B:I’m from Boston. How about you?
A: I’m from Washington DC. I’m only staying here for three more weeks. Then I’ll go to Columbia University in New York.’
B: On, here comes the waiter. It seems we are going to get served after all.
A: Good ,I’m starving
Before I go on a vacation, I always plan my trip very carefully. I usually go on online to look up all the necessary information on the internet. Because I don’t trust the descriptions in the guide books or what the travel agency tells me. To begin with, I look up possible destinations and compare them carefully to see which one best suits my needs. Then, I check the cost of travelling to that particular place. If I am going by plane, then I have to compare the prices of the different airlines in order to get cheapest tickets. If I am travelling by train, then I have to look into train passes or special train ticket office. I seldom travel by buses， because of the high rate of traffic accidents on the high way. I also need to check hotels. Usually I choose to stay cheap hotels. Finally I try to plan how much I need spend on meals and sightseeing. If I plan carefully, I can usually have a good time for the lowest cost.
