[00:05.49]Here is a page from Paul's diary.
[00:11.15]Paul is writing about an exciting thing which happened to him one day.
[00:19.51]Thursday,28th June Today my father and I were waiting for the ferry.
[00:29.47]People usually wait quietly,but this afternoon we heard a big argument.
[00:38.01]Two women tourists were shouting at a big man.
[00:44.67]He was shouting back at them.
[00:48.93]He held out a bag, and showed everyone that it was empty.
[00:54.70]The crowd stared at the three people.
[01:01.96]No one knew what was happening.
[01:06.22]My father moved through the crowd and said quietly to one of the women,
[01:14.97]'What's going on?'
[01:18.34]'They stole my friend's purse five minutes ago,' said the woman.
[01:26.28]'We were down in the bookshop,buying postcards.
[01:32.24]Three young men started talking to us.
[01:37.88]At first they were very friendly.
[01:42.74]Then suddenly my friend noticed that her purse was not in her handbag.
[01:52.20]Two of the men ran away.We followed this man here.'
[01:58.86]Then the bell rang, the gates opened,
[02:05.02]and everyone started going down onto the ferry.
[02:11.58]The man hurried aboard,and the two tourists went after him.
[02:18.95]'Wait,'said my father.
[02:23.02]'I don't want to go on that ferry.'
[02:27.28]This was strange.
[02:30.44]Was my father afraid of that man?
[02:35.72]I wanted to go and watch the action.
[02:40.44]But he hurried to an ice-cream shop.
[02:44.60]'Can I use your phone?'he asked theshop assistant.
[02:49.67]He quickly dialed 110.
[02:54.21]'I want to report a robbery.
[02:58.18]The man is on the ferry now.
[03:03.22]It just left a few minutes ago.'
[03:08.37]He looked down through the railings.
[03:13.20]'It's the"No.3 Ferry"'he said.
[03:17.43]'Please meet the ferry.'
[03:20.96]He gave some more details,and then put the phone down.
[03:27.52]We took the next ferry.As we got off, we saw them.
[03:33.76]Six policemen stood around the man,who was in handcuffs.
[03:40.81]The two women were talking to the police.
[03:45.99]'Well done,Dad,'I said as we walked by.

[09:28.48]Last Friday morning,
[09:31.72]I went to the park for some exercise.
[09:35.76]As I was crossing the road,I tripped on something and fell.
[09:40.91]Just at that moment, a taxi stopped behind me.
[09:46.19]The driver got out and came up to me.
[09:51.33]He asked,'How are you feeling?Don't worry.
[09:57.11]Let me take you to the hospital.'
[10:01.36]He quickly helped me to get into his car and drove to the nearest hospital.
[10:08.31]I had to stay in hospital for several days.
[10:13.88]As I was lying in bed,
[10:17.85]I wanted to say 'Thank you' to the driver.
[10:22.29]I looked round but the driver had already left.
[10:27.46]I feel much better now.See you next possible.
[10:32.92]He helped me when I needed it most.
[10:37.96]Could someone help me to find him,please?
