Examples of English Conversations:

At the Office

Mr. Brandon: The International Conference begins in Jakarta next Monday. We have to
                      send someone as our representative.
Mrs. Nancy: Let’s ask Mr. Parker to attend it.
Mr. Brandon: Ah, no. Mr. Parker is away in Singapore and won’t be back before next
Mrs. Nancy: How about Mrs. Amelia?
Mr. Brandon: Well, she can be the right person, but you know it’s unreasonable to ask
                      her to go to Jakarta when her mother is in critical condition.
Mrs. Nancy: Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know that.
Mr. Brandon: Why not Mr. Thomas?
Mrs. Nancy: Yes, he can, if he is willing to.
Mr. Brandon: What about George? He seems to be relatively free these days.
Mrs. Nancy: All right. Let’s ask both George and Thomas.

At Home

Bondan: But how does she go? She can’t make it all alone, can she?
Amber: You know Mrs. Anita and family are going to Bali. How about sending Bella with
Bondan: She already has five children to manage. It’ll be unkind to ask her to take care
              of one more.
Amber: Could we let her go alone? After all it’s only an overnight journey.
Bondan: No, I can’t agree with that.
