In this lesson you will learn how to talk in English while breaking promises.
Kurt: Sandra, I had to break a promise I made to you.
Sandra: What are you talking about?
Kurt: I had to give Duke the money I saved for our trip.
Sandra: But why did he need it this time?
Kurt: His dad had a stroke today, and he had no money for the hospital.
Sandra: I see. Why are you so upset? Maybe we both should visit him.
Kurt: Listen Sandra, I’m sorry I broke my promise again. It’s the second time I couldn’t keep my word.
Sandra: C’mon, that’s Ok! In fact, I’m proud that you helped somebody in need!
Kim: Why aren’t you eating the cake, Sandra?
Sandra: Err...Can I please skip that?
Kim: It’s my birthday cake! What’s the matter?
Sandra: I promised Kurt that I wouldn’t eat sweets.
Kim: Oh! C’mon, this small piece of cake won’t raise your cholesterol!
Sandra: But I promised him!
Kim: Okay! You can blame me! I’ll handle him.
Sandra: Alright! I’m breaking my promise, but I won’t eat any sweets other than the cake.
Kim: Your nails look so pretty in this pink!
Sandra: Your nails would look great, too. Why don’t you color them?
Kim: When I was a child, my grandma made me promise not to color my nails.
Sandra: Oh my God! You’re still keeping that promise! I don’t even remember it.
Kim: Yeah! Maybe I’m too stubborn, but I remember her everytime I see nail polish.
Sandra: I made the same promise, don’t you remember? You shouldn’t hold on to such things! I’m sure that if your granny were still alive she’d paint your nails herself!
Kim: Alright! I think it’s time to break that promise.
Kurt: Willy, you promised you wouldn’t get angry if I told you the truth.
Willy: Shut up man! You’re flirting with my girlfriend.
Kurt: No Willy. I am not. She’s the one who called me and asked me out. I refused to go out with her, but I needed to tell you this.
Willy: How could she do that! She promised me she’d be mine forever.
Kurt: You can’t trust that girl, Willy. I think you need to break up with her.
Willy: You are right, buddy. She’s not the right girl for me.
Kurt: She will never find a guy like you, Willy.
