Speaker A: What is something that really troubles me? Well, like everyone else these days I worry about earning enough to pay my monthly bills, my rent and all the other current living expenses. I want to be secure for the future and make sure I will have everything I need and maybe start saving some money. I am so afraid of losing everything I own.
Speaker B: What do I worry about? Oh, about a lot of different things — money, politics, the weather. But my greatest concern is my mum and dad. I have a good job with a foreign firm and I am living overseas at the moment. I am so worried about them. I’m afraid they won’t be able to deal with all their problems. If anything happens to them when I’m away, I won’t be able to come back home quickly enough to help.
Speaker С: I think my biggest worry today is my career. I’m 26 now and I’ve spent the last few years travelling. Most of my university friends have settled down. They work hard and have made a good start to their careers. So I began to worry that when I go back home I will be too old for companies to want me. What shall I do then? That’s a tough question. I do not want to be unemployed.
Speaker D: Every time I look in the mirror I feel nervous. I am afraid of getting fat as I love pizza and hamburgers. I like shopping a lot and always buy sweets. I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t help it. Like any other woman in her thirties, I am really afraid of gaining extra kilograms. But I just can’t say “no” to cakes and sweets. Who can?!
Speaker E: What am I afraid of? Well, recently I visited a friend of mine in Shanghai and she made a comment that I thought was very interesting. She said I look as though I have plenty of money. I don’t, but compared to ordinary people in the street I look like I have a lot of money. I am really afraid of someone thinking that I have a lot of money and trying to rob me, especially if they have a gun. I have a little bit of paranoia about guns and robbers.
Speaker F: I guess I worry about the usual things, like getting in shape for the summer or being healthy and fit. I think being healthy is the most important thing. So I exercise regularly and watch what I eat. You know it’s all about getting the right amount of vitamins, minerals, and fibre. I need this body to last at least another fifty years.
