listen and answer
F - i can't understand why anyone would be interested in ancient civilizations.they're boring.
M - maybe you're looking at this the wrong way. it's interesting to know about ancient civilizations to understand how the human race has developed into what we are now.
F - yes, but on the other hand, when we were born everything that these ancestral people had developed was already here for us to put to good use.
why would i care about who they were or about their lives?
