20 A What things are important in my life? Well, I’ve got an old car. It isn’t very fast, but I love it. What else? Well, my mobile’s very important to me. It’s got all my friends’ phone numbers on it, my photos, music, everything! I haven’t got a laptop, but I’ve got an old computer. That’s important to me for school. And I’ve got a big TV in my room. That’s very important because I love football!
21 M What’s important to me? I’ve got this very expensive watch. It’s from Ben, my husband, and I love it. And my diary - that’s important to me too. Ben hasn’t got a diary, he’s got everything on his mobile these days. And my new bicycle is important to me because we haven’t got a car. What else? Well, we’ve got a beautiful cat, Lily. She’s very important!

M Oh, those things. No, I haven’t got one of those.
I And you, sir? Have you got an MP3 player?
A Yes, I have.
