Part Two Main Dialogue

    Exercise 1 Scanning for the Main Idea

    Denise: Excuse me, miss, how much does it cost to ride BART?

    Stranger: Well, that depends on your destination. From here to Glen park its only a

    dollar ten, but if you go as far as Fremont, it costs a lot more. Tom: Were going to Berkeley. Do you know what the fare is?

    Stranger: There are two stations in Berkeley. Which one are you interested in? Denise: Oh, gee, Im not sure. Were from out of town.. Were visiting my sister. She

    told me her house is just a stones throw from the UC Berkeley campus.

    Which station is that?

    Stranger: The downtown Berkeley station is really close to the university. Im sure

    that the one you want.

    Denise: Tom, are you going to remember this, or should I be jotting this down? Tom: What is there to write down, Denise? The woman is giving us very simple

    directions. So, how much is the fare to downtown Berkeley? Stranger: Lets go take a look at the map over there. You see, the map shows you how

    much it costs to go from one station to another. Ah, there it is: two dollars and

    sixty-five cents.

    Tom: Two sixty-five? Thats highway robbery for such a short distance!

    Denise: You think thats expensive? Tom, from our house to Amherst it costs twice as

    much as that.

    Tom: Yeah, but thats an hour ride. You really get your moneys worth.

    Stranger: Yeah Uh Well, did your sister explain which train to take? Tom: Berkeley. We take the Berkeley train to Berkeley, right? Stranger: Well, no actually. Thats just one stop on the Richmond line. Here, let me

    show you on this map. Here we are at Powell Street in San Francisco, and its

    basically a straight shot on the Richmond line to the downtown Berkeley

    station.

    Denise: Yes, my sister said we wouldnt have to change trains.

    Stranger: Uh-oh, what time is it?

    Denise: Its 8:15.

    Stranger: You cant go directly to Berkeley from San Francisco after 8:04. Tom: Uh-oh. Is there another train we can catch?

    Stranger: Dont worry. You can take the Pittsburgh line. Look here, take the Pittsburg

    thline to the 12 Street station in Oakland, and then transfer to the Richmond train.

    The Richmond train will stop in Berkeley. Get off at the downtown station. From

    there you can walk to your sisters house.

    Denise: We want to be there by 9 oclock. If we have to transfer, we might be late. Do

    you think well make it in time?

    Stranger: It doesnt take that long. Let’s see; theres a train from here at 8:18. It

    tharrives at the 12 Street station at 8:34. You can get a Richmond train right away

    at 8:34, and youll arrive in Berkeley at 8:46.

    Tom: Let’s if Ive got this right: We take the 8:18 Pittsburg train and arrive in Oakland

    at 8:34. Then we take the 8:34 Richmond train to Berkeley. That should be a

    snap.

    Stranger: Yeah, youll have no trouble.

    Tom: Thank you very much for your help, Miss. Youre a very kind young lady.

    Denise: And so pretty and smart, too! Tell me dear, I notice youre not wearing a ring.

     Stranger: Well, no, uh

    Denise: You know, my sisters son is very handsome. I think you two would like each

    other

    Stranger: Uh, well; oh! I think I hear your train coming! Youd better hurry so you

    dont miss it!

    Listen to these sentences from the dialogue:

    Do you think well make it in time?

    yes or no.

    Listen to these sentences from the dialogue: How much does it cost to ride BART?

    What time is it?

    These are examples of Information Questions. Information questions cannot be answered with a simple yes or no. Information questions have the same intonation

    as statements (falling intonation), and begin with question words such as where,

    when, which, what, how, why and who. Information questions require the listeners to provide some sort of information. The wh-word at the beginning of an information question shows the type of

    information the speaker wants you to give. If you do not understand the complete

    question the speakers asks, the wh-word you hear will give you an idea about

    what the speaker wants to know. For example, if the speaker does not know the

    place, he or she uses the wh-word where, which means tell me the place.
