DIALOGUE READING

Please read aloud the dialogue with your tutor.

READ

Female:
Oh no! I left my science project at home. Today is the deadline of that project. I’m in trouble.
Male:
How did that happen?
Female:
I woke up late this morning because I stayed up until midnight to finish that project. I had to rush to school to be on time for my first class. I only realized that I left my project after my first class.
Male:
That’s a big problem. What are you planning to do?
Female:
I don’t know what to do yet. Do you have any ideas?
Male:
Well, you can try to create a new project during your break time. Just make one that looks like the one you made last night.
Female:
It took me a lot of time to make that project last night. I think it took me at least five hours to finish everything. Our break time is only for an hour, and I don’t think that’s going to be enough for me to make a new one.
Male:
Then, why don’t you ask our science teacher for a deadline extension? Tell her what happened and that you will submit your project tomorrow morning instead. I’m sure she’ll understand.
Female:
Our science teacher is very strict when it comes to deadlines. She might allow me to submit it tomorrow but I’m sure that she will deduct some points on my grade as a consequence. I don’t want to fail in science.

ANSWER 5

I agree with because

CHECK YOUR ANSWER 5

We will check the sample answer. Please repeat after me.

SAMPLE ANSWER 5

Which solution do you agree with?
I agree with the second solution because it provides a practical result. Asking her science teacher for a deadline extension has more assurance that she will get a good grade for that project. Making a new one means wasting the project which she worked hard for last night. Besides, making it during her break time does not guarantee the quality of her science project. She might not even be able to finish it during her one-hour break time because it took her at least five hours to finish the one that she made last night. In the end, even if her science teacher deducts some points from her grade for submitting her project a day late, at least she was able to submit a presentable project.
