    ALAN: So what are you doing these days Sally? I haven’t seen you for ages. The last time was at John’s party over three years ago.
    SALLY: Well actually, I’m still studying. After finishing my first degree I stayed on to do a MSc.
    ALAN: Oh, so you’re still at Oxford University. You must know Oxford very well by now.
    SALLY: That’s right. But as soon as I finish my MSc, I plan to go to America.
    ALAN: Oh, really? Why do you want to go to the USA?

    As the years passed my fame as a writer grew, and I became rich.
    Agnes and I had been married ten happy years. One evening in spring, when we were sitting by the fire in our house in London and three of our children were playing in the room, a servant announced the arrival of a stranger. “Is he here on a matter of business? “ I asked. “No, he has come for the pleasure of seeing you”, said the servant. “He is an old man and he looks like a farmer”. The children were eager to see the mysterious visitor. “Let him come in here”, I said.
    There soon appeared in the doorway a sturdy, grey-haired, old man. “Why, it is Mr. Peggotty!” Cried Agnes as she embraced him. Once our first, happy greetings were over, Mr. Peggotty sat before the fire with the children on his knees.”The years pass and I do not to grow younger”, he said, “and it always has been on my mind that I must come and see Mas’r Davy before I got to be too old”. “And now tell us, how you have fared in Australia. And Emily? ”Said Agnes and I together. «Perhaps life was a little hard at first. The news of Ham’s death had saddened Emily. She was very deppressed for a time but her farm work kept her busy. And now, in addition to taking fond care of her uncle, my Emily spends her time teaching children and tending the sick and needy”, he said.
