This podcast demonstrates the kinds of things people say when people meet in informal situations, like at a coffee break at work or when two students meet outside class. In this podcast, you will hear a complete conversation when two students meet in a cafeteria.
John Hi Jim
Jim Oh Hi John. How’s it going?
John OK thanks, but I am really hungry.
Jim Me too. I missed breakfast today. I woke up late.
John Why? Did you go out last night?
Jim No. I was working on my project until late, and I must have forgotten to set my alarm.
John Oh no. Did you miss your class?
Jim No. I just got here in time, but there was no time to eat.
John I am going to get a burger and some fries. What are you going to get?
Jim I think I’ll get a sandwich because I still haven’t finished my project, and I have to hand it in this afternoon.
John Oh ok.     Hey, I am going to the cinema tonight. Would you like to come with me?
Jim I have to look after my little brother. My parents are going out tonight. It’s their anniversary. I would love to go, but I can’t tonight.
John That’s a shame. Maybe we can go out at the weekend?
Jim Yes. That would be better. I will have finished all of my homework by then.
John I’ll call you on Friday and we can make a plan
Jim OK. That sounds great.
John See you on Saturday.
Jim Yeah. See you. Bye
John Bye
