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

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

============

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.
