ASTRID: Hey! How’s the college entrance examination going? I was told that they quite changed the questions.
MERIDA: Yep, you’re right, but I think I sailed through it though it was quite hard.
ASTRID: That’s good news! I hope you’ll pass the exam, so I can see you around the campus next school year.
MERIDA: Yeah!I hope so too. Thanks!
* Situation 2
HARRY: Good day Ron. I see you’ve been practicing so hard for the recitals this weekend.
RON: Yeah, I am. Actually, I’m very nervous. What if I can‘t play the violin really well as they expect?
HARRY: Oh, don’t be too hard on yourself, I know you will sail through it and your music will be really good.
RON: You think so? Well, thanks Harry!
