Alex: "Good evning, Ieverybody. !It is already June , Time flies. Tonight we have a guest here. Julia, thanks for joing us tonight."
Julia: " Hi, Alex, thanks.Time flies, it sure does. Alex, do you have any news topics tonight?
Alex: "Julia, Do you know anything about Egypt? "
Julia: "Of course, who do you think I am. I spent five years in Cairo."
Alex: "What do you already know about what has been occurring in the Middle East and North Africa since the end of 2010?"
Julia: "No. I have not heard about the recent story, can you tell me what's happening?"
Alex: "Okay, let's start. A committed Islamist and a former military man will compete for the Egyptian presidency next month. This is a historic election which pits the country’s two main opponents against each other."
Julia: "Could I have a word with you?"
Alex: "Sure, go ahead."
Julia: "Why do you say it is a historic election."
Alex: "Okay, I will tell you why. Allow me to finish."
Julia: "Oh, sorry to break in like this. Please continue."
Alex: "No. that is not a problem at all. Let's get back to the topic of the election in Egypt.Mohamed Morsi, a 60-year-old engineer and loyal follower of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Ahmed Shafiq, a former air force pilot and cabinet minister under deposed president Hosni Mubarak, were the top two vote-getters in the first round of Egypt’s presidential elections. Julia, are you with me?"
Julia: "Yes, but what does deposed mean. You said under deposed president Hosni Mubarak."
Alex: "Deposed means removed from high office. He or she needs to leave the top position. Can I continue?"
Julia: "Yes, please."
Alex: "The contest marked the first time Egyptians could freely choose their head of state, and was a key test of the Islamists’electoral appeal after the region’s uprisings. Julia, back to your question. Do you get the answer why it is the historical election?"
Julia: "Ah, Uh, Yes, I guess so. The answer is, let see."
Alex: "Oh, it's time. Everybody, see you next week. Bye Bye."
Julia: "Good bye"
