Student: Excuse me professor, I am sorry I don’t have my homework today.
Professor: You usually turn in your homework in time. What happened this time?
Student: I wasn’t feeling well
Professor: Well. What happened to you?
Student: I had a terrible headache.
Professor: How are you feeling now?
Student: It’s much better. I will do yesterday’s homework along with today’s.
Professor: Okay. Take care.
Student: Professor, can I submit my assignment today?
Professor: Today? But there are 5 days left to the deadline.
Student: I know, but I’ve already finished it.
Professor: Hmmm... Is that so? Did you check it for errors?
Student: Well no... Not really.
Professor: Why don’t you read it once more then and see if there are any errors. Submit the assignment tomorrow if it’s fine.
Student: Thanks. I will do that professor.
Professor: This week’s assignment is a 1500 word essay on the economic situation.
Student: Professor, can we use illustrations in the essay?
Professor: Well, that’s an unusual request. I suggest you only use words.
Student: Okay. No problems.
Professor: Remember, you’ll be graded for the essay in your internal review.
Student: Sure. I will do my best to prepare a great essay.
Student: Good morning professor. May I come in?
Professor: Yes, good morning. How is your football practice going?
Student: There is a problem as my mother is not happy about my missing classes. She thinks my studies will suffer.
Professor: Well, in that case what do you propose to do?
Student: I am very eager to play this tournament. I wonder if I can take some extra classes after school to make up for the lost time?
Professor: Yes, it can be done. I can give you half an hour after school every day.
Student: Thank you so much. I appreciate this.
