M: Hello, Mary. Would you like to play table tennis this afternoon?
W: I’m afraid not. I’m going to the library to work on our group project.
M: My goodness. I almost forget this one.
W: It’s due next Monday. My part is very difficult. I don’t know what to do.
M: Me neither. What about having a group meeting to discuss it?
W: That’s a good idea. Shall I say Friday afternoon?
M: I’m fine with it.
W: By the way. Do you know there are some lovely changes in our school library? We can have our group meeting in our school library now.
翻译：Where can we have a group meeting in the library?
电脑回答：In the group learning spaces. The lecture hall on the 3rd floor has been turned into group learning spaces for students to study in groups. Each learning space is actually a small booth. It is provided with a desk, some chairs, a computer, and a whiteboard. These learning spaces are very popular now, so booking is required.
翻译：How can we book a group learning space?
电脑回答：Students need to first check the availability on the library website and then file an online application. When you receive an email from the library, they need to reply and confirm the booking. There’s another interesting change in the library. The books are put on stacks of different colours by subject. Now there are different colour zones for books, red, yellow, green, and so on.
翻译：Which colour zone are the books on Chinese literature in?
电脑回答：Red zone. I happened to borrow several books on Chinese literature yesterday. It’s much easier to find books now. Students just need to follow the colour and get to the right stacks quickly. By the way, there’s a new cafe on the ground floor, next to the entrance. We won’t need to worry about being hungry while studying in the library.

Tom had a new job in a local grocery store. On his first day, an old woman walked up to Tom and asked whether she could buy a half package of carrots. Tom hesitated because it was against store policy. But the old woman explained that she lived alone, and one full package was too much for her. Tom decided to help her. He opened the package and sold half to her. The manager saw this and came to Tom. He told Tom that he must follow the policy. He warned that he would fire Tom if he caught Tom doing that again. Just at that time, another customer came and asked Tom whether she could buy the other half. She said a half package of carrots was exactly what she wanted. The manager heard this and then thought about it. He told Tom it might be a good idea to put the carrots and other vegetables into smaller packages. Tom did as the manager instructed. The smaller packages were popular among customers. The manager was very pleased to see many more vegetables sold than before. And Tom became the sales star of the day.
