Practice Dialogues: Regular English lessons contain key sentences for many different scenarios. Remember to make each sentence a part of you. That means you should be able to say everything without thinking about them. Review and study them as many times as you want.

Dialogue 1:
A: “What are you doing now?”
B: “I’m watching TV.”
A: “What are you watching?”
B: “I’m watching Friends. What are you doing?”
A: “I’m doing my homework, but I really need to take a break.”
B: “You want to do something?”
A: “Yes. But I shouldn’t. I got to finish my assignment now.”
B: “Alright. Call me later then.”
A: “OK. Bye.”

Dialogue 2:
A: “Where are you going now?”
B: “I’m going to the bank.”
A: “Aren’t you supposed to be at work?”
B: “I’m working now. I’m making a deposit for our company.”
A: “Where do you work?”
B: “I work for a restaurant as a controller.”
A: “Wow. That’s great.”
B: “Great seeing you. I have to go now. I’ll talk to you later.”

Dialogue 3:
A: “Hi Steve. What are you doing here?”
B: “I'm meeting a friend here for dinner. How about you?”

A: “I really find the subject very interesting. I’m enjoying all my classes.”
B: “That’s great.”
A: “I better go now. I don’t want to miss the bus.”
B: “Aright, I’ll talk to you later.”
A: “Okay. See you later.”

*Practice in advance with a friend is recommended. However, make sure you practice the conversation at the speed of a native speaker. Also, try to pronounce all the words correctly with the correct intonation and emphasis (that means your sentence stress and word stress).
