Tom and Jess both talk about things they could not live without. Listen and do the tasks.
Jess. Right, Tom, tell me, what three things could you not live without?
Tom. Well, I guess you say me playing with my new toy just now. It’s my iPod touch and it is fantastic. I often take long bus journeys at the weekend and on this little electronic storage machine with screen I can watch a movie and that’s
just… makes bus journeys fly by. It also has wireless internet so I can carry it around and in a coffee shop I can check my e-mail and it has the added function of being able to play music, >
Jess. Well, I have to agree with your second one, definitely the Internet is one thing couldn’t live without either, for the same reasons you mentioned, really, just to stay in touch with people for things like reading the news, checking my e-mail, finding phone numbers, getting information. I really couldn’t live without it. The second thing would be my family. I couldn’t live without them. I think since I’ve moved away from Britain and I don’t live close to them, and I don’t see them regularly anymore, I’ve grown to love them even more. Kind of you don’t realize what you’ve until it’s gone, and that was true with my family. I really miss them all the time, and I love going back to see them, so they’re my number two, and my number three would be music. Music’s a huge part of my life and I think I remember things by what I was listening to at
the time. I’ll remember periods of my life by what’s songs I was listening to or what album і bought, so for me my memories are very much brought back to me by music, so those are my three things: the Internet, my family, and music.
