二、对话实例:

A: Aren't you interested in watching the Olympics? There have been some excellent performances by athletes from all over the world.

B: I never find it very interesting.

A: I think it's wonderful to see people from all over the world taking part in such a great event.

B: Oh, well. In my opinion, for a lot of people, it's just a way to show their country is better than other countries.

A: Yeah, but I think the Olympics can help to promote world peace.

B: I'm not sure about that. We still have many wars in the world. I think that the idea behind the Olympics is good, but the reality is that during the Olympics countries compete. There's no real spirit of cooperation and people are usually not very friendly to each other.

A: You are so pessimistic (悲观的)! The Olympics is a great opportunity for athletes to demonstrate their speed, skill and strength. Most people hope to see someone from their country win, but I think that they are just happy to see good performances by any athlete.
