Exercise 1 Listen to these six farewell exchanges. In each case, note whether they have known each other for some time, and whether they are likely to contact each other again soon.
A: Look, I must fly. I've got a train to catch.
B: Okay, Have a good weekend.
A: You too. See you sometime next week.
B: Right. Bye.
A: I'm afraid I must leave now. My plane is at six.
B: Of course, Mr Durram. It's been a pleasure to have you with us today, and I hope we can expect to see you again sometime.
A: Without doubt. Thank you for your hospitality. Here's my card, so don't hesitate to contact me if you're in Delhi.
B: I'll do that. Have a safe journey.
A: Thank you. Goodbye.
A: On behalf of the team, I'd like to wish you all the best for the future. It's been great working with you over the last few years. And I hope we won't lose touch.
B: I'm sure we won't - and thank you for those kind words. I'll let you know my address once I've settled in.?
A: Good. So, keep in touch.
B: I will. Goodbye.
A: I must get going now. I'd like to miss the traffic.
B: OK. Thanks for coming over. I look forward to seeing the draft report next week.
A: Sure. So, we'll be in touch early next week.
B: Good. Drive carefully then.
A: Right. Bye.
A: I'm sure we'll be seeing you again in the future.
B: I hope so. In the meantime, here's my card. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
A: I will. Have I given you my card?
B: No, I don't think so.
A: Well, here it is. Have a good trip back.
B: You, too. Bye.
A: Right, I think that just about covers everything. Have you got time for lunch?
B: I'm afraid not. I've got another meeting at two o'clock.
A: That's a pity. Anyway, it was good of you to drop in.
B: Any time. I'll give you ring in a couple of weeks.
A: Right. We'll stay in touch.
B: Of course. Must go. Bye.
