1. A dialogue about the problem of load-shedding

 Sumi : Why do you look drowsy?

Rumi : I could not sleep well last night.

Sumi: In fact, we are facing the same problem—that is load shedding. There was no electricity in our locality last night.

Rumi: The insufficient production of electricity, misuse and illegal connection of electricity are the main reasons of it. 

Sumi : Yes, we have no option but to live with pitch-black darkness and sweltering heat.

Rumi : Exactly! But can you imagine what type of problem it creates to a student whose exam is knocking at the door and the patients who are under the knife of a surgeon?

Sumi : The terrible sufferings caused to the examinees and patients cannot be described in words at this moment.

Rumi : Last night I could not read at all. You know tomorrow is my English exam.

Sumi : Besides, the foods we preserve in refrigerators turn rotten and become unfit for consumption. Housewives are suffering much.

Rumi: But the more deplorable damage occurs in refrigerators in laboratories and cold storage. It causes a heavy economic loss.

Sumi: The running productive machines come to a standstill in mills and factories. A tremendous loss of production!

Rumi:   Problems are everywhere. What is the solution?

Sumi: The government should take necessary measures on emergency basis to ensure adequate production of electricity to remove the curse of load shedding.

Rumi: I think that more power plants should be set up and system loss should be reduced.

Sumi:   Not only that, illegal connections should be banned. I think that consciousness can play a vital role in this regard.

Rumi:  The wastage of electricity should be stopped and strict laws should be introduced.

Sumi:   Electricity being the driving force of a country, it should be ensured at any cost.

Rumi: Lack of electricity means lack of production and hampering the study of the students is very harmful for a country.

Sumi: Thanks for sharing your valuable ideas.

Rumi: You are most welcome. See you again.

 

 

2. A dialogue about the bad effect of smoking

 Rana: What about you? You aren’t going to school for a few days.

Rumi: Just wait. Let me buy a cigarette from that shop.

Rana: What! Cigarette! Oh, yes. I’ve heard you have become a chain smoker nowadays.

Rumi: Actually I smoke now and then.

Rana: Why do you smoke? Don’t you know smoking is harmful for health?

Rumi: Oh, you don’t know. When you smoke, you look smart and full of personality. Smoking also removes tiredness.

Rana: But there are many bad effects of smoking. It is like taking poison.

Rumi: What bad effect! Many a man is smoking everyday here and there.

Rana:  People hate smokers. Besides, smoking is the beginning of drug addiction.

Rumi: I didn’t think like you.

Rana : But it may cause you serious diseases like cancer, heart attack, bronchitis etc. It also damages your lung and causes lung cancer.

Rumi:I tried to give it up, but I could not. I cannot even concentrate on my study without smoking.
Rana : If you had thought seriously about its bad effect, you would not have taken it anymore.
Rumi: That’s heard, friend but nobody dies from smoking.

Rana: According to WHO, 5 million people die every year from tobacco related illness. That is about one person is dying in every 6 second. Smokers are likely to die at least 10 years earlier than the non-smokers.

Rumi: I never thought so much about the dangerous effect of smoking. I just started to smoke out of curiosity.

Rana: And this curiosity is spoiling your character and gradually leading you to death.

Rumi: I promise I’ll give up smoking from this very day. You have saved me from a great danger.

Rana:  Never indulge such a bad habit rather you should persuade people not to smoke.

Rumi: Thank you very much for you valuable advice.

Rana: You are most welcome. I have to go now.

Rumi: Ok bye. See you later.

 A: Where are you going?

B: I am going to the mayor for requesting him to take necessary steps against environment pollution.

A: What do you mean?

B: Any unexpected and abnormal change in chemical, physical and biological characteristics in environment is called the environmental pollution.

A: The disposal of various kinds of waste is seriously polluting the environment. Motor vehicles, mills and factories, railway engines and powerhouses are creating fume and smoke which pollute the air.

B: Besides man makes fires to cook food, to make bricks, to melt tar for road construction and to do many other things.

A: Forests and trees are being cut down on a large scale. So, the ecosystem of the environment is now in great danger.

B: Mills and factories also throw their poisonous chemicals and waste products into rivers, canals and seas.

A: Chemicals, fertilizers and insecticides get mixed with water in rivers, canals and ponds, and thus pollute water.

B: Moreover, water vehicles, unsafe drains and unsanitary latrines are also responsible for water pollution.

A: The noise of motor vehicles, mills and factories, aeroplanes, domestic appliances, radios, cassette players, CDs, televisions etc cause aggression and damage hearing.

B: Every year millions of people all over the world die unnecessarily as a result of pollution. Air pollution causes pneumonia, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases.

A: Midway through the next century, temperatures may have risen by as much as 4°C.

B: It will reduce mankind’s ability to grow food, destroy or severely damage wildlife, raise sea levels and thereby flood coastal areas and farmland.

A: The lower southern part of the country may one day go under water.

B: Problems are everywhere. What is the solution?

A:  If we all use energy, transport and other goods and services more carefully, we can reduce harmful emissions to our air, land and water.

B: Government and people of all classes should come forward to raise consciousness and to control this environmental pollution.

A: Thanks for sharing your valuable ideas.

B: You are most welcome. See you again.

 

 

4. A dialogue about importance of punctuality

Nora     : I am very glad that you are in time and have kept your promise.

Neela    : As I am punctual, I always try to maintain time.

Nora     : Punctuality is a great virtue and it helps to breed all other virtues.

Neela    :  Infact punctuality’s the quality of doing things at the right time. Its importance’s very great.

Nora     : A punctual boy prepares his lessons timely and he never lags behind the class.

Neela    :  When the exam comes, he finds himself well prepared.

Nora     : On the contrary, an unpunctual boy attends his school late and misses a part of his lesson.

Neela    :  Besides he does not learn his lessons at the right time.

Nora     : When the exam comes, he finds a huge load of arrear lessons.

Neela    :   He can’t prepare himself and fails or he adopts copying which is very bad.

Nora     : Right you are.

Neela    : So he can make little progress in his studies and in the long run he has to repent of his bad habit.

Nora     : Exactly, we’ve to realise that punctuality is important in every sphere of life.

Neela    : If a man who is to address a public meeting comes late, he keeps so many people waiting and wastes their time.

Nora     : In fact no excuse’s good enough for this want of good sense.

 Neela   : Moreover unpunctual attendance in an office or a workshop causes disorder and sometimes dislocation of work.

Nora     : This may give rise to a lot of harm and cause even disaster.

Neela    : Correct, lack of punctuality hampers orderly progress. You know, Napoleon lost the Battle of Waterloo, because one of his generals failed to come to his help in time.

Nora     :  So we should maintain punctuality at every step.

Neela    : We should make it clear to our friends about its importance.

Nora     :  I thank you very much Neela.

Neela    :  You’re welcome. See you.

8. Dialogue Between Two Friends on Food Adulteration

Raha: Hello Zarif! How are you?

Nitu: I am fine. What about you?

Raha: I am fine too. Have you seen the recent raid of mobile courts on food production houses?

Nitu: Yes, I think the mobile court is doing the right task to stop food adulteration.

Raha: Exactly! The adulteration of food is increasing beyond any limit. They are using chemicals to preserve food.

Nitu: Yes, and these chemicals are mainly used for industrial purposes. These chemicals can cause kidney damage, heart failure and various other diseases.

Raha: Yes, and it seems to me that the unscrupulous traders of our country don’t care even to kill innocent people to earn extra profit.

Nitu: You are right. However, this is not the only case of food adulteration of adult people. They are also mixing chemicals with baby foods.

Raha: Oh, my God! I see the situation is very terrible! They have become so heartless that they don’t even care about babies.

Nitu: Yes, nowadays fishes are adulterated with formalin, fruits are adulterated with carbide and edible oils are adulterated with cyanide.

Raha: But why these traders are adopting such malpractices in spite of knowing the worst consequences of massive food adulteration?

Nitu: It is very simple. They are dishonest and they can do everything for money.

Raha: They are very nasty and they have no moral character. They are enemies to humanity. However, this crime must be stopped at any cost.

Nitu: And we are helpless at the point of their clutch.

Raha: You’re mostly right. Our government is taking steps time to time but they are producing no result. Isn’t there any light of hope?

Nitu: Yes, there is. It is we who should be careful to choosing right foods as far as possible. The criminals have to be punished by law.

Raha: Your valuable words may make me wise.

Nitu: Absolutely! You are most welcome. See you again.

Opu: Yes, it is only English that can help us to enter the storehouse of knowledge. 

Sam: Absolutely. But it is a matter of shame that most of the university graduates lack proper knowledge on English.

18. A dialogue between Sujan and Ashik about importance of English:

Opu: Hello Jack,

Sam: Eating apple.

Opu:  Tell me about your exam result in detail.

Sam: Sorry friend; I think if there were no subject named English in the school syllabus.

Opu:  What! You failed in English? Listen, you may be promoted to next class failing in English but how will you pass the test of life without English?

Sam: What do you mean by this?

Opu:  I mean you cannot expect to build up a better life with a better career without the knowledge of English?

Sam: Why?

Opu: Nice! Actually English is essential in our every walk of life.

Sam: Of course. It is an international language. In this age of globalization, it plays an important role for communication in the present world. So, learning English is a must.

Opu: But it is unfortunate that we are neglecting it. For that we are lagging behind than our neighbours.

Sam: Oh! It is really disgraceful. This situation must be changed if we want to keep pace with the modern world.

Opu: Right you are. Our international relations and trade would be affected much if we do not learn English well.

Sam: Exactly. Besides, without efficiency in English none can expect to receive higher studies as all the books on higher education are written in English.

Opu: Yes, it is only English that can help us to enter the storehouse of knowledge. 

Sam: Absolutely. But it is a matter of shame that most of the university graduates lack proper knowledge on English.

Opu: Exactly, and as a result they are being deprived of getting good job and receiving handsome salary.

Sam: Right you are. A sound command over English is a prerequisite for good job and good salary.

Opu: Undoubtedly. In fact, the importance of learning this language cannot be described in words. We must study and practice English seriously. Thank you.

Sam: You are most welcome. Good bye.
