Basic English Conversation: 100 Daily Topics | Topic: 91 -100


  • Hi Jason, Sorry to bother you. I have a question for you.
  • OK, what’s up?
  • I’ve been having a problem with my computer. I know you’re an engineer so I thought you might be able to help me.
  • I see. What’s the problem?
  • I have a file that I can’t open for some reason.
  • What type of file is it?
  • It’s a Word document I’ve been working on. I need to finish it by tomorrow.
  • Were you able to open it before, on the computer you’re using now?
  • Yes, I was working on it last night and everything was fine, but this morning I couldn’t open the file.
  • Do you think your computer might have a virus?
  • No, I checked and there weren’t any.
  • I’m not sure what’s wrong. If it’s possible, email the file to me and I’ll see if I can get it to open.
  • OK, I’ll do that when I get home. Are you going to be around tonight?
  • Yeah, I’ll be home after 8 PM. Send it to me when you get a chance and I’ll call you later.


  • Hi George, do you know how to get downtown?
  • Sure. Why are you going there?
  • I want to buy a new computer.
  • OK, are you driving?
  • Yes.
  • Go straight down this road. When you get to the second light, take a left. Then get on the highway and take exit 52.
  • That sounds really complicated. Can you tell me again? Which road do I take first?
  • You go down this road, then at the second light, turn left. That road is Main street.
  • OK, I think I’ve got it now.
  • Why are you buying a new computer anyway? Didn’t you just get one a few months ago?
  • Yes, but it doesn’t work anymore.
  • Where did you buy it?
  • At Wal-Mart.
  • I think your computer should still be under warranty. You can bring it back to them and they’ll fix it for free.
  • I think you’re right. I didn’t think about that. I should go talk to them about it. Where is the closest Wal-Mart?
  • It’s about 2 blocks from here. I have to go there to get some stuff now anyway. Do you want to follow me?
  • Sure.



  • John, did you see the news today?
  • No, what happened?
  • There was a big earthquake in San Diego.
  • Oh my goodness.
  • The president was on the news talking about it earlier.
  • Was anyone hurt?
  • I think they said two people were killed.
  • Oh, that’s terrible.
  • Yeah, I can’t believe you hadn’t heard about it. They were talking about it on CNN all day.
  • Oh, I don’t watch TV that often.
  • Don’t you watch the news?
  • No, I usually read the news online, but I haven’t had time to turn on my computer today.



  • What’s your favorite sport?
  • I like basketball. I watch the games on TV all the time.
  • Who’s your favorite team?
  • The Boston Celtics.
  • They’re really good this year, aren’t they?
  • Yes. Do you like them?
  • Yes. Everyone around here does.
  • Do you think they’ll win the championship this year?
  • It’s possible. They have some really good players.
  • Did you watch the game last night?
  • A little, not the whole thing. I watched the second half though and I saw some of the highlights online.
  • It was a great game, wasn’t it?
  • Yeah. Do you know who they’re playing tomorrow night?
  • I think they’re playing LA.
  • That’s going to be a tough game. LA has a good team. 



  • Hi Liz. Are you working on your webpage now?
  • No, I’m still waiting for you to send me that image file for the homepage.
  • Do you mean you didn’t get it? I sent it to you over an hour ago.
  • Let me check. It’s going to take a second ’cause I have to start up my computer.
  • Did you get it?
  • One second. I just have to open my web browser and check my Hotmail account.
  • OK.
  • OK, here it is. I got it.
  • How do I find the webpage? I tried to search for it on Yahoo but I couldn’t find it.
  • Don’t use Yahoo, use Google.
  • I tried that also and it didn’t work.
  • If you go to Google and search for my name, you should be able to find it.
  • Let me try that. I see it now.



  • Hey Michael, I’m tired. Would you mind driving for a while?
  • Sorry. I would like to, but I don’t know how to drive.
  • Really? Don’t you have a license? I thought everyone had a license.
  • No, I’ve lived in cities all my life and when I’m at home I usually take the subway or bus.
  • I see. Do you think you’ll learn to drive in the future?
  • Yes. I plan to buy a car next year. I think you need one in the US.
  • Actually, now that I think about it, a lot of people in cities here take the bus also.
  • Well, I’d like to travel more. I’ve been here for a few months already and I feel like I haven’t seen anything yet.
  • How are you going to learn to drive? Do you want me to teach you?
  • No, I wouldn’t want to trouble you. I’ve already signed up for a class near my house. It starts next month. 



  • Thomas, your English is so good. How did you learn it?
  • Well, in my country everyone has to take English starting in the first grade. I’ve been taking English courses for 12 years now.
  • Wow, that’s interesting. I remember when we took that trip last year and visited your family. It seemed like there weren’t many people that could speak with me in English.
  • Oh, that’s because they don’t speak English that much.
  • But they speak it in school, right? Maybe they just didn’t like me so they didn’t want to talk to me.
  • No, actually they liked you a lot. They told me they thought you were very nice. They are just shy. They’re not used to talking with foreigners. I remember when I first came to the US. I was really nervous about speaking with people.
  • I see. I thought there were lots of Americans teaching English in your country.
  • Yes, that’s true. There are probably twice as many now as there were five years ago, but they are mostly in the cities. My family lives in the country.
  • I wonder why. Personally, I prefer the country to the city. It’s so quiet and peaceful. If I were to teach, I would want to teach in the country.
  • Do you think you would want to teach someday? I know the schools around my town are looking for teachers, so if you want, I can call them and get more information.
  • No, I don’t think so. I would need to stay there for a year, and I don’t think I can take that much time off work.
  • Well, if you change your mind, let me know. I think you would be a really great teacher. 


Lesson 98: GIFTS

  • Dorothy, what are your plans for Christmas?
  • Oh yes, it’s almost Christmas, isn’t it? I’m not sure what I’ll be doing then.
  • Well, if you don’t have any plans, your family could have dinner at my house.
  • That’s very nice of you, thanks. Have you finished your shopping yet?
  • No, I still have to do that. I think I’ll go to the mall this weekend.
  • It’s going to be really crowded at the mall. You should shop online.
  • You’re right. My family loves to read, so I can probably get them all presents from
  • What do you think you’ll get for your wife?
  • Probably a romance novel. It seems like she’s always reading one of those.
  • Don’t you think you should get her something a little more expensive, like jewelry or maybe a new computer?
  • Maybe you’re right. It’s hard buying gifts. I think my wife has everything she wants. Maybe I should just ask her.


Lesson 99: ELECTION

  • Martin, who are you going to vote for?
  • Do you mean for the president?
  • Yes.
  • I’m not sure yet.
  • You should make up your mind soon. The election is next month.
  • Yes, I know. I hear about it every day on the news.
  • I’m going to vote for Obama.
  • I think he is a good choice, but I think McCain would make a good president also.
  • I know. They’re both good. It’s hard to decide. McCain is older but he has more experience. Obama seems to have a lot of good ideas, but some people say he wants to raise taxes.
  • I heard he wants to lower taxes. It’s hard to know what the truth is. That’s the reason I really don’t pay attention to politics.
  • Yes, it can be frustrating, but it’s important and it’s interesting to watch.


Lesson 100: BOOK CLUB

  • Hey John, can I talk to you for a minute?
  • Sure, what’s up?
  • I wanted to let you know about a book club I joined a couple of months ago. I know you do a lot of reading so I thought you might want to come with me next month.
  • Oh, that sounds like fun. When does the group meet?
  • Usually the last Saturday of the month at 9:30 in the evening. Is that too late for you?
  • No, I think that’s ok. What do you talk about in the group?
  • Well, every month we choose a new book and then during the next meeting we discuss it.
  • What book are you reading now?
  • The Kite Runner.
  • I’ve heard that’s a good book. What’s it about?
  • It is a good book. I’m almost finished. The book is about a boy who grows up in Afghanistan during the 1980s. It’s called the Kite Runner because the main character takes part in a kite flying competition.
  • That sounds really interesting. I’d love to come.
  • Ok, great. The next meeting isn’t for another two weeks, so you still have time to read the book.
