Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Hi, Emma. Have you finished your group’s presentation?
Yes, Ron. Rina and I were able to finish the presentation for tomorrow’s event.

You and Rina are groupmates? That is great. I really admire Rina and her work ethic.
I admire her as well. She is very detail-oriented and focused when it comes to work.

I worked with her on a project before. She knows how to lead when needed, and she’s a good team player as well.
Yes, that’s her. What makes her more admirable aside from her work ethic is her attitude. Despite her position and achievements, she remained down-to-earth.

She has always been that way. It is also very easy to get along with her. Many of our colleagues look up to her.
Recently, she trained the new employees in the office. I believe she was a great mentor.

No wonder why many of our colleagues really admire her.
That is right. Being her colleague and friend makes our working environment more bearable.
