Listen to the recording on donating cars and read along with the conversation. Review the key vocabulary and the sample sentences.
Woman: Hey, how are things going?
Man: Well, to be honest, things aren’t going well for us.
Woman How come?
Man: Well, I lost my job a month ago, and my wife was in the hospital for three weeks. Now, our bills are piling up, and last week, our car died, and it’s going to cost about $2,500 to repair it. That’s way more than it is worth. I mean, it has almost 275,000 miles.
Woman Wow. I’m really sorry to hear that.
Woman Uh, hey listen. I have an older car that I’m not using now. I’ll donate it to you.
Man: No, no. I can’t accept it.
Woman Please, take it.
Man: Are you sure?
Woman Of course, the car needs a new oil change and a couple of new tires, but otherwise, it runs great.
Man: That’s very kind of you.
Woman All you owe me is one of your homemade peach pies. That will make us even.
Man: Okay, thanks.
