Woman: Oh yeah, I saw that this morning. I didn't hear my phone at all. The TV volume must have been too high for me to catch the calls. I'm sorry about that! What were you up to last night?
Man: I wanted to invite you to a party we went to last night. It was so much fun! We didn't get home until two in the morning!
Woman: Ah, that sounds fun. I had to go to bed at 10 last night. I needed to work in the morning. Next time you guys go out, give me a notice and I'll try to make it out for a bit.
Questions 44 through 46 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Excuse me, ma'am? Do you know when we are expected to arrive in New York? I seem to have lost my itinerary.
Woman: The flight usually takes about four hours, depending on the flight conditions. The weather today is pretty calm, so we should arrive around 2:30 PM.
Man: Okay, sounds good. Will you be showing a movie during this flight?
Woman: Of course, sir! Now we are serving drinks and lunch, then we will show the movie.
Questions 47 through 49 refer to the following conversation:
Woman: It's so hard to find time to get to the gym nowadays. I need to exercise though! I found my pants are getting tighter around the waist.
Man: You could try to go to the gym during your lunch break.
Woman: I don't have enough time to both go to the gym and still have lunch. Besides, I prefer to have my lunch in the cafeteria in case I need to keep on working during lunch.
Man: Well, you can try to be more active in your everyday tasks. You can start using the stairs more instead of the elevator. If you need to get up to stretch, you can take a walk around the office and take a walk up and down the stairs a few times a day.
Questions 50 through 52 refer to the following conversation:
Woman: I really like what they've done with the office! I was worried they would do a poor job with the renovations but everything turned out nicely.
Man: I know what you mean. I like that the office feels a bit warmer and more comfortable. It doesn't feel as bland as it did before.
Woman: Oh yes! The lobby is also much more inviting. The colors really pop out when you walk through the doors.
Man: It definitely makes the office a more welcoming place!
Questions 53 through 55 refer to the following conversation:
Woman: Does anyone have any idea why Chung hasn't arrived yet? He's supposed to speak first at the meeting.
Man: Chung just called me and said that there was a bad accident on the road. He will be about fifteen minutes late.
Woman: I told him he should try to arrive earlier in case something like this happened! How irresponsible! Okay, how about we show the advertisement first? Hopefully Chung will arrive by the time we finish.
Man: That's not a bad idea. He should arrive any minute now. I'm sure we can start the meeting very soon.
Questions 56 through 58 refer to the following conversation:
Man: We've finally finished the proposal! I'm so relieved it's completed…but I'm a bit nervous to show it to the manager. He said he wanted to look it over before we submit it to the director.
Woman: He hasn't paid attention this entire time, and he wants to look it over after everything is completed? I suppose we should proofread it before we show him then.
Man: I guess we can look it over quickly. I think everything is pretty polished though.
Woman: Okay, let's look it over after lunch though. I'm starving!
Questions 59 through 61 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Hey, is it still okay to leave work early today? I need to meet my loan officer later today.
Woman: Yes, I remember. It's no problem, but did you remember to finish organizing the invoices? We need to submit them to the department head on Monday's meeting.
Man: I've been working on them all day. I'll have them ready and on your desk before I leave the office.
Woman: Sounds great! I hope everything goes well with your meeting today!
Questions 62 through 64 refer to the following conversation:
Woman: Hey Rich, have you seen Jeff around the office? I can't seem to find him anywhere.
Man: The sales manager took Jeff to the factory a little while ago. I think they are having some troubles with production. What's going on?
Woman: One of our clients just walked in. He needs to talk to Jeff. It seems urgent.
Man: I think Jeff will be out for a while. The problem at the factory seemed urgent too. The problems may be related, actually. I'll call Jeff and tell him about the client; maybe we can help him ourselves.
Questions 65 through 67 refer to the following conversation:
Man: I'm very disappointed with the sales figures from our new product line. It's floundering in the market.
Woman: It's a bit shocking. We had a very positive response with all of our test groups, but we just can't seem to be selling anything.
Man: I think this may be an awareness problem. I need to assemble an advertising team this afternoon to work out some new ideas for marketing.
Woman: OK, I'll make phone calls to everyone.
Questions 68 through 70 refer to the following conversation:
Man: So Jessica, have you found a suitable replacement for you yet? I'm sad to see you go, but we also need to find someone as qualified to replace you!
Woman: So far there is one person that looks very capable to take over for me when I leave. I would like to arrange an interview for tomorrow. I see that you have an opening after lunch tomorrow.
Man: I'm free most of the afternoon tomorrow. Do you have any specific time we could meet?
Woman: How about two o'clock? I think you are going to like him! He fits all of the qualifications and seems to have a good grasp of what is expected of him if he gets the job.

Barnes & Thornburg LLP
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to inquire about the position for mid-level associate at your company.*Tôi viết thư này để hỏi về vị trí cộng sự cấp trung tại công ty của quý ông/bà.[/dich] I recently found the job posting in East Coast magazine and would like to know if the position is still available. I am interested in working with you at your Indianapolis office.
I believe I am an ideal candidate for the job. I have six years of experience as a finance officer with Spokane & Harpe, with a deep understanding of large scale transactions. Much of my experience is also in capital raising transactions within the company, having met or exceeded projected goals every time. Owing much of my success to my team, I also credit our success to my ability to properly communicate our desired goals and execute them to the very best of our abilities.
I believe, with my experience, I can thrive working within your company and I look forward to tackling challenges that come with having such a wide array of clients I am well aware of the analytical mind necessary to properly deal with the intricacies of balancing various accounts and look forward to meeting these challenges head-on.
Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to discussing my qualifications further. If you have any questions or would like to reach me, you can contact me with the information provided above.

145 Kangley St
On December 12th I purchased a short white leather dress that called “Jiana” for $50.00 in your shop PERFASHION, 145 Kangley Str, Nevada. I paid for this item by credit card and I received a receipt No 34560000000012.
I bought that dress for my 15 year old daughter and when I got it home it didn’t fit her well. We went back today to exchange it, but there were no dresses to fit her. I asked for a cash refund, but the shop assistant refused point-blank saying only tokens were given out. There were no signs explaining no cash refunds. I explained there were no dresses to fit her and I needed to buy one somewhere else. But your shop assistant rudely refused. I couldn’t get back my $50.00 to go to another shop.
The shop now has my money and my daughter still has no dress.
I ask for you to solve this problem positively about my $50.00 refund.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Dear Mrs. Kim,
Thank you for shopping with us and I am deeply sorry to hear the predicament you are finding yourself in. In most cases we try to keep our return policy as flexible as possible to accommodate the needs of our customers. In normal circumstances our company allows for exchanges on most of our items, no questions asked.
Unfortunately, the “Jiana” dress you purchased was a promotional item that comes with different stipulations upon purchase. Because this item is a season-end discount item, the offer fits within a different return policy. If you look at your receipt you can read that the transaction terms states that discounted items are only available for exchange and not for full cash refund. This policy is put in place to prevent overstock on discontinued items. I am sorry for the inconvenience but this is a company-wide policy that I do not have the power to reverse.
Although I cannot help you with your return, I promise we will work to make our policy clearer in the future to prevent any miscommunication with our customers again. We value your patronage and wish for you to continue shopping with us.

To Whom It May Concern,
I have recently booked a package tour from Singapore to Genting through your company and I have a few questions about the itinerary.Do you provide any type of transportation from your offices to the terminal or will I need to arrange my own transport? If you have any type of shuttle bus that runs from your office, I would like to take advantage of that service.
Looking through the itinerary I see that many meals are provided during the trip. I am curious about the menu for the meals you are providing. Are there any vegetarian options offered with the meals? I am not a strict vegetarian, but I would like to choose a meatless option if possible. If not, is there any type of alternative I can choose to replace the meals in my schedule?
Finally, I would like to know if I can have my own free time in the afternoon of the second day (14 July) as I have plans to meet my relatives later in the day. I plan to make it to the events in the evening on Saturday, but I do not want any kind of hold up on account of my actions.
Thank you for any kind of assistance you can provide. I hope to hear from you soon so I can plan for my trip accordingly.
