Five Short Conversations Set 1
1. What time is Emma going out?
Mom: Are you going out with your friends after dinner tonight, Emma?
Emma: Yes, I’m planning to go out at five past eight.
Mom: OK. We can eat a little earlier at six-fifty then.
Emma: That’s great. Thanks, mom.
Mom: But make sure you’re back by ten-fifteen as you have school in the morning.
2. Who is Amy talking to on her mobile?
Boy: Mum, who’s Amy phoning? Is she calling Uncle Jack about borrowing his tent?
Mum: She’s talking to her new classmate Emma, about some science project they are working on. Have you done your homework?
Boy: I’m doing my English project with Harry, remember? He’s coming around a bit later so that we can finish it off together.
Mum: Oh yeah. I forgot he was coming round.
3. Why is the boy tired?
Girl: You look tired today, Did you play baseball after school?
Boy: We were supposed to, but the other team didn’t turn up. I think their bus broke down or something.
Girl. That’s a shame.
Boy: Yeah, plus by the time I left school. I missed the last bus home.
Girl: So, how did you get home?
Boy: I had to walk. It took over an hour.
Girl: Oh dear! That’s why you are tired then.
4. What will the weather be like on Saturday?
Boy: I’m going camping near the lake on Saturday with my uncle. Do you want to come?
Girl: Isn’t it going to rain on Saturday?
Boy: I heard, it will rain on Friday and be sunny on Saturday.
Girl: OK. I’ll go with you then. When will you come back?
Boy: We’ll be back on Sunday evening before the storm.
5. Which subject will they have first today?
Boy: Hi Amy. Have you seen the new timetable for today?
Girl: No, aren’t we having English first? That’s what we usually do on Tuesday as soon as we get to school.
Boy: Maths is the second lesson, before History which is the first lesson.
Girl: Really! Anyway, I finished my history homework, so that was lucky.
