Conversation between professor and student about missed deadline
Practice dialogues are a great way to improve your English speaking skills. When you listen to a conversation you familiarize yourself with useful conversational structures and vocabulary. Here is a piece of conversation between a professor and a student.
The student failed to submit his project before the deadline. Here is a conversation between him and his professor.
Professor: So you haven’t submitted your project yet. This is the second time you have missed the deadline. What do you have to say?
Student: I’m really sorry, Professor. I worked hard on this project but then something went wrong with my experiment.
Professor: No more excuses. We can’t tolerate irresponsible behaviour like this.
Student: But, Professor…
Professor: There is nothing that I can do at the moment. You may talk with the Head of the Department. He might be able to help you.
Student: OK. I will try to see him right away. Thank you.
