Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hey, Emma. Do you have any plans for the upcoming summer vacation?
I have none, actually. How about you?
My friends and I are going to Manza Beach in Okinawa. Wanna tag along?
Oh, no thank you! I’m terrified of the ocean. Anything but there.
You used to love the ocean! What happened? What makes you scared now?
I nearly drowned two years ago. Since then, I never went to the beach.
Oh, I’m sorry you experienced that. But you need to be courageous and get rid of your fear.
But I’m still skeptical…
It’s fine. We’ll help you conquer your fear so that you’ll love the ocean again.
I do miss swimming anyway, so I’ll come with you. Thanks, Ron!
