LINDA:

Hey! How did your physics exam go?

 

FRANK:

Not bad, thanks. I’m just glad it’s over! How about you …
how’d your presentation go?

 

LINDA:

Oh, it went really well. Thanks for helping me with it!

 

FRANK:

No problem. So … do you feel like studying tomorrow for
our math exam?

 

LINDA:

Yeah, sure! Come over around 10:00, after breakfast.

 

FRANK:

All right. I’ll bring my notes.

 

LANGUAGE NOTES

  • Hey! is a friendly expression meaning “hello.”
  • How did your physics exam go? is a way of saying “How was your physics exam?”
  •  I’m just glad … Notice the stress on “glad.” “Just” is used for emphasis before an
    adjective here.
  • How about you … Notice the intonation falls here because the speaker is going to
    follow it up with a detailed question.
  • How’d your presentation … Notice the contraction for “How did” sounds like /howdj/
    and “your” sounds like /yer/.
  • Do you feel like here has the meaning of “do you want to.” Notice “do you feel like” is
    followed by an “-ing” verb (studying).
  •  Come over here has the meaning of “come to my house.”
  • Notes Students take notes about what the teacher says during a lecture.
