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 o’clock, after breakfast.
Frank: All right. I’ll bring my 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.
