Customer: Hi, I'm here for a routine oil change.
Mechanic: Great, welcome. Have you been here before?
Customer: No, this is my first time. I just moved to the area and needed to find a new mechanic.
Mechanic: Okay, well we're happy to have you. Can I get your name and vehicle information?
Customer: Sure, my name is Sarah and I drive a 2015 Honda Civic.
Mechanic: Okay, got it. So for a routine oil change, we'll drain the old oil and replace it with fresh oil, as well as replace the oil filter. We'll also do a quick inspection to make sure everything else looks good.
Customer: Sounds good to me. How long will it take?
Mechanic: It should take about 30-45 minutes. While you wait, we have a comfortable waiting area with free coffee and WiFi if you'd like to stay here.
Customer: That's great, thank you. And how much will it cost?
Mechanic: Our standard oil change is $50, which includes up to 5 quarts of oil and a new oil filter. If your vehicle requires more oil, there may be an additional charge. But we'll let you know before we start the service.
Customer: Okay, that sounds fair. Please go ahead and do the oil change.
(After the oil change)
Mechanic: Okay, Sarah, your oil change is all done. We used synthetic blend oil, which is recommended for your vehicle. And everything else looks good, there are no other issues to report.
Customer: That's great news. Thanks for taking care of my car.
Mechanic: No problem. We recommend getting an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on your driving habits. And we'll put a sticker on your windshield to remind you of your next oil change.
Customer: Perfect, I appreciate it. I'll definitely come back here for future maintenance needs.
Mechanic: We look forward to it. Have a great day!
Click for Learning Tips
Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.
Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio.
Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out
Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember
or understand everything.
I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)
Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your
native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any
difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.
Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate
learners to engage in
extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
