B: Well, I'm glad it wasn't your neighbors causing you to move.

B: You, too. Keep in touch, and good luck with your new job.

A: I am an ESL teacher at Pasadena City College.

B: Very good! What does ESL mean?

A: ESL means English as a Second Language.

B: Well, I'm glad you're not moving because of your neighbors.

A: I can't tell you how happy I'll be not to have to listen to their TV.

B: Yes, I'm going to tell them one more time to turn down their TV and keep it down.

A: You've been a good apartment manager and a good person. I'll see you in June.

B: Good for you! What does ESL stand for?

A: ESL is English as a Second Language.

B: Well, I'm glad you don't feel you're being chased out by your neighbors.

A: Their TV is so loud you'd think they were stone deaf.

A: Thanks for all your help over the past few years.

B: Thanks. Good luck with your new neighbors and your new job.
