PART B_1
Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Hello, Emma. I saw you walking yesterday afternoon.
Yeah. I was. I decided to commute home on foot.

Why is that so? Was it to kill time?
No, It is not about killing time. My doctor recommended I to take it easy.
I have been stressed out these past few weeks because of too much workload.

I see. I think that is a good thing to do.
I agree. Physical activity boosts brain function and memory,
two factors that influence performance. As a result, it’s likely that
healthy people who are physically active have greater cognitive
capacity at work.

I couldn’t agree more.
You know, I am always in awe when I see tall buildings around
when I commute on foot. After a few weeks, the change is
beyond belief. Would you like to join me in commuting on foot?

Sure! I think that’s a great idea. when you plan to commute on food again?
It’s on Monday! See you!
