Basic English Conversation: 100 Daily Topics | Topic: 81 -90


  • Betty, are you and John still dating?
  • Yeah, things are going really good.
  • Where did you meet him?
  • I met him at the library a couple of weeks ago. We were sitting at the same table and he asked to borrow my pen.
  • Wow, that’s a nice story.
  • I was telling Jim about it the other day. He thought it was pretty romantic.
  • Do you two have plans for tonight?
  • Yes, I think we’re going to rent a movie. Have you seen anything good lately?
  • I saw Spider-Man the other day.
  • I’ve heard that’s a really funny movie.
  • Are you kidding? That movie’s not funny. It’s sad. I was crying at the end.
  • You’re really sensitive, aren’t you?
  • I guess so. Maybe that’s why I can’t find a girlfriend.



  • Hi Peter, can I talk to you for a moment? I just heard the cookie factory downtown is going out of business.
  • Where did you hear that?
  • Sara told me.
  • I’m not sure that’s true. I haven’t heard anything about it.
  • She said that they have already started to lay people off.
  • Doesn’t your father work there?
  • Yes, I’m really worried he might get laid off, he just started to work there about three months ago. What do you think I should do?
  • I’d talk to your father.
  • Yeah, but if there was something wrong I don’t think he’d tell me. He doesn’t like to upset me, but I really would like to know what’s going on.
  • So what are you gonna do?
  • Aren’t you good friends with the president of that company?
  • Yes, we use to work together at a different company about five years ago.
  • Maybe you could call him and see what’s going on.
  • Well, I don’t know. I guess I could. It’s pretty late now, but I’ll call him in the morning.
  • OK, thanks so much.


Lesson 83: I’M GETTING FAT

  • Wow, I’m really getting fat.
  • You don’t look fat.
  • Yes, but I am. I’ve gained 10 pounds in the last two months. Look at my stomach.
  • How much do you weigh?
  • I think about 170 pounds.
  • What kind of foods do you eat?
  • I usually have pasta for dinner. Sometimes I get take-out or fast food if I don’t have enough time to cook.
  • I was reading a diet book the other day. It said that if you eat meat and nothing else, you’ll lose weight quickly.
  • Wow, does that work?
  • I don’t know, but someone told me they tried it and lost 20 pounds.
  • That sounds good, but I’m not sure how long I could do that.
  • I know, once you start eating vegetables and bread again you’ll probably start gaining weight.
  • Well, I think I’m going to try it anyway. Who’s the author?
  • I can’t remember. It’s not that popular anymore. When I get home I’ll check and give you a call.


  • Hello?
  • Hi Sarah, it’s James.
  • Hey James, I can’t talk now. Can I call you back later?
  • Sure. Is there a problem?
  • I’m late for work and my car isn’t working, so I need to find someone to take me to work.
  • I can take you.
  • Oh, really? Thank you. That would help a lot.
  • Do you need me to pick you up after work also?
  • Yes, if it’s not too much trouble.
  • It’s no problem. I’m leaving my house now. I’ll be right there.
  • OK. I’ll wait for you in front of my apartment building.
  • Do you know what’s wrong with your car?
  • I’m not exactly sure. I think there’s a problem with the engine.
  • OK, I’ll have a look when I get there. I know a lot about cars. When I was younger my father and I use to fix old cars. 



  • Hey, what have you been doing today?
  • Nothing, just watching TV. I’m really bored. I don’t have anything to do.
  • I don’t have anything to do either. I didn’t do anything today except clean my house.
  • I know. I was planning to go to the mall today with one of my friends, but it snowed so much we couldn’t go anywhere.
  • I hope it snows all night because I don’t want to go to school tomorrow.
  • Do you know anyone who has a camera? I want to take a picture of all this snow.
  • No, I don’t know anyone who has a camera.
  • Have you seen Sara today? I think she might have one.
  • No, she hasn’t been around all day. She said she had something important to do today?
  • Oh, where did she go?
  • Nobody knows. I called her roommate and she doesn’t know either.

Lesson 86: MISSED CALL

  • Mandy, did you know Heather called you?
  • No. When did she call?
  • Two hours ago, I think.
  • Two hours ago? Why didn’t you tell me earlier?
  • Sorry, I forgot.
  • What did she say?
  • She said she was waiting for you at her sister’s place.
  • OK, I was going to cook dinner first, but I don’t think I have enough time now. I’ll just warm up some leftovers in the microwave.
  • OK.
  • If she calls again, tell her I’m gonna be late.
  • OK, no problem.
  • This is very important. Don’t forget.
  • Don’t worry. I won’t forget.
  • Actually, would you please hand me my phone? I think I should give her a call now. She’s probably wondering where I am.
  • Sure, I’ll get it for you.



  • I’m going shopping. Do you want to come?
  • I thought you went shopping yesterday.
  • I did, but an old friend called me last night and invited me to his birthday party. I need to buy a gift for him.
  • I see. What are you going to get him?
  • I really have no idea what he likes. I haven’t seen him in a long time. What do you think?
  • Maybe a cake?
  • Well, that’s a good idea, but I think I should probably get him something else, like something he can wear.
  • How about a sweater? I saw a really nice one in the mall the other day. Maybe we can go there and take a look.
  • OK, what store was it in?
  • It was at Macy’s. I think they’re having a sale this weekend.
  • Oh, that’s a really nice store. I like the clothes there.


  • Hey Diane, what are you doing here?
  • Hi, Tim, how are you? I’m waiting for a friend.
  • I heard you’re going to graduate this summer. Is that true?
  • Yes. If everything goes alright, I’ll be getting my bachelor’s degree in August. Then I need to start looking for a job.
  • I had to do that last year. It wasn’t easy. Do you have any job offers?
  • No, not yet. I sent out a lot of resumes, but I didn’t receive many responses. It’s pretty hard to find a job right now.
  • What’s your major?
  • Psychology.
  • That was my major when I started college, but I switched to engineering after the first year.
  • I think it’s easier for engineers to find a job.
  • I’m not sure about that. It took me about 3 months to find a job. I finally was able to get a job after I put my resume on one of those job websites.
  • Anyway, it really doesn’t matter. If I can’t find a job I’ll probably go back to school to get my Masters degree.



  • Hello?
  • Hey Gary. What’s up?
  • I haven’t talked to you in a long time, what’s been happening?
  • Well, I don’t know if you heard, but I just moved into a new apartment in LA.
  • No, I heard you were thinking about moving but I didn’t know you’d already found a place. That’s cool.
  • Yeah, I’m really happy about it.
  • Do you have any roommates?
  • No, not this time. It’s a big change for me ’cause I’ve never lived alone.
  • Don’t you think you’ll be lonely?
  • Not really, I have two friends who live in the same building. We all had dinner together last night.
  • Are they students also?
  • No, they’re not students, but there are a lot of students living in the building.
  • Sounds like a nice place.
  • Yeah, I think it’s a good environment for learning English.
  • Well, I’m glad to hear everything worked out.
  • You should come out here and visit me sometime. There’s even a pool.
  • That would be nice. I’ll think about it.



  • Justin, have you found a girlfriend yet?
  • No, not yet.
  • What about Jenny?
  • She has a boyfriend.
  • Oh, I thought they broke up.
  • No, they’re still together.
  • How about that girl from work you were telling me about last year?
  • Who, Emily? She’s married now. She got married last month.
  • I see. It seems like everyone our age is married.
  • Yeah, it’s not easy.
  • Is there anyone you’re interested in?
  • There is one girl I like who lives in my building. I talk to her a lot because she’s also studying English.
  • What’s she like?
  • She’s really nice. She moved here from Texas about 3 months ago.
  • What does she do?
  • She’s an accountant.
  • That’s a good job. She must be really smart. Have you asked her out yet?
  • Actually we’re going to dinner on Friday.
  • Good luck.
