Learn the dialog

Listen to the dialog while reading the text.
Have you seen the story about the crazy cow on the news?
I have no idea what you are talking about.
They just said on the news that a cow is loose in town and stealing people's food.
A cow stealing food? You shouldn't believe everything you see on TV.
It's true! They also had a video clip showing the cow running around.
If it is actually true then that's quite interesting news. Where did the cow come from?
They don't know yet. Nobody has claimed it missing.
What station did you see this on?
It was on Channel 3.
This sounds like just the story for Channel 3. They never show any actual news.
You are right. Channel 3 is definitely more entertaining than informative.
Well I hope they catch the cow and bring it back to where it belongs.
