Đoạn hội thoại 1
Charlene: This is so exciting! I can't believe that we're going to be spending a year abroad in London. I'm psyched about attending Dr. Fauxter's lectures on natural history!
Liana: Are you kidding, Charlene? If you act like a geeky bookworm over there, I'm going to pretend I don’t know you. I'm going to London to party!
Abigail: You know, you should really use your time there to visit museums and stuff. You can party anywhere. The best part about living in another country is soaking up the local culture.
Đoạn hội thoại 2
Waldo: Hey, Jeremy. Do you have any idea how to complete the assignment that was given to us at the last lecture?
Jeremy: Yeah, sure. I thought the directions were pretty straightforward. Weren't you paying attention?
Waldo: I must have spaced out. Sometimes I can't keep my eyes open when I listen to our professor talk. He's so boring!
Hank: Don't worry about it Waldo. It's not due until the end of the semester. Didn't the professor say it was for extra credit anyway?
Jeremy: Hmmm. Doesn't it seem strange that extra credit work has been handed out so early in the semester?
Hank: You're right. I have a bad feeling about this.
Đoạn hội thoại 3
Professor Vogel: Herman, I would like to have a word with you about your performance recently.
Herman: Okay, sure. Am I in some kind of trouble? Is it about my slipping grades?
Professor Vogel: Well, as you know, your grades on the last 2 tests have been terrible. To be honest, I'm really concerned about you. You used to be at the top of the class. Is something going on?
Herman: Well, things have been hectic lately. My mother is having some problems financially, so I picked up a part-time job. I've been working nights to help out.
Professor Vogel: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Well, I'm planning on running a study group on Sunday afternoons from now until the end of the semester. Unfortunately, you're not my only student who is falling behind. Would you be interested in attending?
Herman: Thanks, Professor Vogel. I think that's exactly what I need to pull my grades back up.
