Расшифровка записи
Now we are ready to start.
Tom: Hi, Kate. Kate, earth to Kate! You’re obviously so deep in thoughts. Are you lost in your dreams? What are you thinking about?
Kate: Oh, hi Tom! Sorry, I didn’t see you. Actually I was thinking about a present for my friend’s birthday.
Tom: This shouldn’t be much of the problem for you. You are always so creative for the presents.
Kate: Thanks for the compliment, but the point is, I don’t know this person very well, so choosing a present for her is tricky.
Tom: How can it be that this is your friend and you don’t know this person very well? How can be possible?
Kate: I know it sounds strange, but this is my pen friend actually.
Tom: That explains it. How did you find her?
Kate: Well, she is from Peru and we have just started communicating. I found her profile on facebook. I got a message saying that she has her birthday in two weeks; I thought it’d be nice to give her something on such a special occasion.
Tom: Ok, I see. What about giving her CD? This shouldn’t be so hard to ship to Peru, and music is universal, you know.
Kate: A great idea! But I don’t know what she has or hasn’t in her music collection, do i?
Tom: Oh, that’s pretty easy. You can give her a disc of our local music, she can’t have that. That’s for sure.
Kate: Super! You’re a star!
Tom: Just keep in mind what styles she generally prefers. Do you have any information on that?
Kate: I saw it in her profile. If I remember correctly, she likes calm, romantic music. Does that mean that she is a quite person?
Tom: Not necessarily. She might be just the opposite. Very talkative and easygoing.
Kate: You know, I believe, persons character is reflected in what music he or she likes.
Tom: I think so too. But the connections can be very unexpected and inexplicable for my mind.
Kate: All right. Now I need to go to a music shop and choose something.
Tom: Shall I help you? I’m absolutely free and I know all the local music really well. I can help you choose.
Kate: Really? That would be great! You could also help me choose something for myself, I think my collection needs new items.
Tom: Good idea. Let’s go then.

I'm thinking about a present for my friend's birthday....This is my pen friend actually.
