Sample conversation 1
It’s ridiculously hot!
Storyline: Rahul and Mira are complaining about the weather. Here is a piece of conversation between them.
Rahul: What awful weather we’re having. It’s ridiculously hot!
Mira: Yes, it’s worse than last year.
Rahul: It feels like the whole world is broiling. No wonder, people are dying.
Mira: Yes, one must be very careful when one goes out in the hot sun.
Rahul: Forget about going out. The heat is unbearable even inside.
Mira: Yeah! I just hope that it doesn’t get any worse.
How hot it is!
Storyline: It is such a hot day that Maya and Anjali just want to stay at home. Here is a piece of conversation between them.
Maya: How hot it is! I don’t think I can stand this scorching heat.
Anjali: Yeah, it’s awfully hot. You can’t stand in the sun even for a minute.
Maya: You’re right. Anyway, I guess we can’t go out this afternoon.
Anjali: We shouldn’t either. Who wants to be taken to the hospital for sunstroke or something?
Maya: Not me. Got to drink plenty of liquids.
Anjali: Yeah, you’re right. By the way, have we got anything to drink?
Maya: I’ll get you a glass of chilled lemon juice if you want.
Anjali: That would be nice.
It was raining cats and dogs!
Storyline: When Maya got home from work, she was dripping wet.
Karan: You’re so wet! You should have taken an umbrella.
Maya: I should have but I didn’t because the weather forecast said that it’d be a sunny day.
Karan: You can’t depend on the weather bureau. They seldom get it right.
Maya: You’re right. It wasn’t just any shower. It was raining cats and dogs.
Karan: Well, you had better change those wet clothes, or you’ll catch a cold.
Maya: I know.
