A: is everything ready for Billy’s birthday party?
B: yes. I’ve finished making the birthday cake and I’ve put all the things on the table. Did you find the party hats?
A: yes, I did. I’ve put one on the table for each child. I put up the big “happy birthday” sign too.
B: thanks. Do you think we have enough for the kids to eat and drink?
A: I’m sure of that. There’s enough food here to feed an amp3y!
B: that birthday cake looks wonderful, but you haven’t put any candles on it yes.
A: thanks for reminding me. I’ve prepared some party games for the children too.
B: I’ve brought a tape with lots of children’s songs on it.
A: hopefully, that will keep everyone happy.
A: how should we commemorate the centenary of the founding of the university? We have been given quite a large budget to pay for some events.
B: we should certainly hold a big party for the professors and students. We could have a firework display.
A: do you think that we should invite alumni and fomp3er professors?
B: if we do, too many people might attend. Perhaps we should invited all of them, but make a small charge to attend.
A: good idea. We should also hold a series of presentations. We could have presentations on the history of the university, the course we offer, and our links with other universities.
B: good idea! I think we could also have presentations by fomp3er students on how their experience here helped them in their lives.
A: we could have another on the successes of graduates from here.
B: I think that we could also produce some merchandise for the centenary-you know, T-shirts, mugs, plates, pens, and things like that.
A: that’s an excellent idea. Hopefully, we would be able to make a profit! A few professors and students are writing a book on the history of the university.
B: I’m looking forward to reading that. We could have book signings by famous professors an alumni.
A: a group of students from the art and music faculty are producing a short film.
B: I’m sure that will be very popular.. OK, let’s think about how we can put these ideas into practice.
