A：It's very nice of you to invite me.
B：I'm very glad you could come, Mr. Liu. Will you take a seat at the head of the table? It's an informal dinner, please don't stand on ceremony... Mr. Liu, would you like to have some chicken?
A：Thank you. This is my first time to come to a Chinese restaurant. Could you tell me the different features of Chinese food?
B：Generally speaking, Cantonese food is a bit light; Shanghai food is rather oily; and Hunan dishes are very spicy, having a strong and hot taste.
A：Chinese dishes are exquisitely prepared, delicious, and very palatable. They are very good in colour,flavour,and taste.
B：Mr. liu, would you care for another helping?
A：No more, thank you. I'm quite full.
B：Did you enjoy the meal?
A：It's the most delicious dinner I've had for a long time. It's such a rich dinner.
B：I'm so glad you like it.
A：Thank you very much for your hospitality.

In the matter of courage we all have our limits. there never was a hero who did not have his bounds. i suppose it may be said of nelson and all the others whose courage has been advertised that there came times in their lives when their bravery knew it had come to its limit.
I have found mine a good many times. sometimes this was expected--often it was unexpected. i know a man who is not afraid to sleep with a rattle-snake, but you could not get him to sleep with a safety-razor.
I never had the courage to talk across a long, narrow room. i should be at the end of the room facing all the audience. if i attempt to talk across a room i find myself turning this way and that, and thus at alternate periods i have part of the audience behind me. you ought never to have any part of the audience behind you; you never can tell what they are going to do.
I'll sit down.
