# (explanation)
# at school
--Hey, Megan. What time is the test tomorrow?
--Hi, Kyle. It begins at eight o'clock. Are you prepared?
--Yes, but I still want to review some. We're meeting at Susan's house. Wanna come?
--Sure, thanks. Can you pick me up? I'll be at my mom's house at three.
--OK, I'll be there.
# in class 
--Good morning, Professor.
--Good morning, Kyle. You seem to be in a good mood.
--Yes. In the summer, I always feel good. Especially in the mornings.
--Really? Why?
--Here in Miami we have perfect beach weather. And I really like to surf.
--I see. In 2003, I participated in a surfing championship in Australia.
--Wow! Did you win?
--No. But I had a great time there. I arrived in August and I left in October. It was fantastic.
# on Friday
--Hi, Megan. Do you have plans for tonight?
--Yes. I'll do what I always do on Fridays. I'm going dancing. On April 6 there'll be a competition. The winner gets a trip to France.
--Well, good luck! By the way, Eric called and left a phone number. I put a note on the wall, next to the phone.
--OK, thanks, mom. Do you know where my yellow socks are? I saw them on the floor in the living room yesterday, but they're not there now.
--I put them on your bed.
--Thanks, mom. I'm going to the mall on Sunday and I'll buy you a beautiful gift.
--I would prefer if you didn't leave your things on the floor, dear.

# The Scorching Summer Heat
Monty: Hey Dreck, how are you doing?
Dreck: Hey Monty! It’s nice to hear from you. Tell me what’s up!
Monty: Well, I just wanted to tell you that we’ll be visiting you this weekend.
Dreck: That’s great! How did you suddenly decide to see me?
Monty: Well, the kids really want to visit their uncle, and Jody wants to see how you’re doing.
Dreck: You sure did pick the right time. The weather is awesome over here. It’s sunny and breezy.
Monty : Good to know that. It’s not so good in here. It’s been raining non-stop since three days.
# Let’s Go to a Warmer Place
Kety: It’s so cold in here!
Dreck: I know. I am freezing. Gawd! I hate winters!
Kety: Do you think it’s going to get warmer soon?
Dreck: I don’t know. The weather report is saying it’s actually supposed to get colder.
Kety: I think I will die if it gets any colder!
Dreck: Oh come on! Our ancestors survived winters much worse than this without any heating.
# The weather is nice
Katy: It’s such a pretty weather outside, isn’t it?
Sam: Yes, it is indeed.
Katy: Let’s go out somewhere.
Sam: That’s a great idea! But, where do you think we should go?
Katy: Let’s go for a long drive.
Sam: What if it starts to rain?
Kety: The sky looks clean. I don’t think it will rain today.
# Weather Forecast
Sam: It hasn’t rained today. I have to go out. Do you think I should take my umbrella?
Dreck: I think you should. The weatherman did say it's supposed to rain today on the television.
Sam: In that case I am sure I won’t need my umbrella.
Dreck: Why not?
Sam: The weatherman said it wouldn't rain yesterday and it rained. Today he is saying it will rain, so it most certainly won’t.
Dreck : Sam, you have amazing logic, but just take the umbrella anyways.
