A: Have you checked how much of the contents of the damaged bales can still be used?
B: The report said that the majority could be salvaged. About 20% can't be used or sold out. We are very anxious about it. We had counted on receiving the shipment to complete several orders.
A: We understand your problem.
B: I'm sure we can count on your support to help us to overcome the present difficulty.
A: What do you suggest for a settlement?
B: We are willing to accept the shipment if you will allow a 30% reduction in price.
A: Let's compromise on a 20% reduction in price on this shipment. And for your next order, we'll give you some preferential terms in addition to what you are getting from us now.
A:咱们折中好了，这批货物减价 20% ，下次你们订货时，除目前已有的条件外，我们另外再给些优惠。
B: I appreciate your quick decision, Mr. Mathew. We accept the proposal. I'm glad we have found a solution.

A: It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete a job like that.
B: Well, I was hoping you would do me a big favor. That was supposed to be a rush order, I forgot to tell you. I’m getting a lot of flak from my boss.
A: Finance, Angie speaking.
B: Hi Angie, it’s Tom Reynolds here. Can you tell me if my tuition fees for this semester have been approved?
