A: Hi, Robert, how are you doing these days?
B: Well, I’ve been a little busy lately preparing the teach-in on the Silk Road.
A: Wow, that’s cool! How is everything going?
B: It’s not a easy job, I must say. Actually, I’m perplexed by several issues which are brought by the limited budget. First is the venue. The five-star hotel I planned to choose is no longer available and I’m afraid if I can find another good place for the event in such a short time.
A: Well, I remember yesterday when I browsed the local newspaper, I saw an advertisement of a book store open for bushiness. It has a big fancy lobby which is pretty good for the event and the price is reasonable.
B: That would be great! I’ll try to get in touch with the manager and talk to him. By the way, could you do me a favor to send this invitation to professor Lee in your university? He is the authority of the subject, and we all hope he can come to the event to give a lecture.
A: No problem. He is also my idol and his lectures are very popular among us students.
B: That would be very nice of you! The event is scheduled to be held in December 12th. I will save you several entrance tickets for you and your friends!
A: Ha ha thank you!
