Michael和李华在复习功课，做完功课后他们准备去看电影。在今天的对话中，李华会学到两个常用语：no way和to bet。
L: Michael，准备好了吗？我们要去看电影了。Anna正开车来接我们 呢。
M: Yeah I'm ready...let me get this call though. Hello? Sorry, I can't come to work right now. I have to pick up a friend from the airport. Yep. Sorry I can't help out. OK.
L: 哎呀，Michael，你怎么能骗你同事说你要去机场接人呢？ 我觉 得他们可能真的很需要帮手，你就去吧。我们可以下次再看电影 嘛。
M: What? No way! I'm not going to help him!
L: 你说什么？no way 是什么意思啊？
M: No way means that there is no way I will do that. It means that I refuse completely.
L: 噢，我知道了， No, N-O, way, 是W-A-Y, 就是绝对不行的意思， 好象中文里的门儿都没有。 你真的不能帮帮他吗？
M: No way! That guy is just lazy. He is always trying to escape from work and find other people to do his job for him. Nobody trusts him.
M: Really? Well what if Professor Wang called right now and said he needs you to help him grade Chinese test papers all afternoon?
L: No way! 我才不干呢，我以前帮过他好几次忙，可他从来都不付 给我工资，更气人的是他连声谢谢都不肯说。
M: Well anyway, Anna and I have been waiting for a long time to see this movie. There is no way I'm changing my plans.
L: 我明白了，我看你是喜欢Anna，不想错过和她一起看电影的机会 吧。
M: What? No way!
L: 哎，你怎么又说 no way， 这回我又没要求你做任何事情啊。
M: Oh, well sometimes no way also means that's not true or absolutely not. It shows that you disagree with something that somebody said.
M: No way!
M: Hmm, Anna still isn't here. I bet the traffic is bad.
M: I said "I bet the traffic is bad". That means I think, or I'm pretty sure that the traffic is bad. Bet, B-E-T, as in to bet money.
L: 噢，bet 本来的意思是下赌注，例如赌钱，不过在这里是认为或 相信的意思。
M: That's right. When you bet money, you can't always be 100% sure about your bet.
L: 对啊，赌钱的人不可能100% 地预料到下赌注的结果， 所以说， 如果你说"I bet"，表示你是在推测。
M: That's right. Anyway, I'm not worried about Anna, I bet she 'll arrive any minute now.
L: I bet you are right. Anna从来不迟到。哎，你觉得这部电影会好看 吗？
M: I don't know. It's an action movie, so I bet you won't like it very much.
M: I bet you'll say it is stupid no matter how good it really is. You always say action movies are stupid.
L: Whatever. 我听好多人说这部电影好看，我想今天电影院一定满 座。
M: Hey, look, there's a red car down the street. I bet that's Anna.
L: No way. Anna 的车比这辆车小多了。
M: Looks like I was right. Let's hurry.
L: I bet Anna 她一定很高兴见到你。
M: No way! Stop joking around like that, ok?
今天李华学到了两个常用语，no way表示不可能；to bet是确信的意思。
