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 two friends. One of them has just broken up with her boyfriend.
Storyline: Maya has broken up with her boyfriend. She is so upset that she can’t sleep at all.
Yamuna: Maya, what happened to you? Your eyes are swollen. Didn’t you sleep well last night?
Maya: I broke up with Arun, but I just can’t forget him. I was all over the bed the whole night.
Yamuna: Well, I can understand your predicament. But Arun isn’t the kind of guy you should spend the rest of your life with. He just doesn’t deserve a good girl like you. Come on. You’ll find a much better guy soon.
Maya: I know he doesn’t deserve my heartache. I trusted him, but he cheated me. Still I can’t get over him.
Yamuna: It’s understandable, but for the moment, you should divert your attention to something else. Go out and meet your friends. Watch a film or read a book. You might as well start a hobby or learn something new. You will feel a whole lot better if you have something to keep you engaged.
Maya: You’re right. I must get over this breakup and turn a new leaf.
