STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIOSTEP 2: STUDY VOCABULARY
My older sister called to apologize. She missed my dance recital last night. She knew that I practiced for months and it was really important to me. She meant to be there but she had an emergency to deal with. She had a class project that was due this morning. They had to redo their presentation after her classmate's computer broke. She was the only person with the finished file. My sister had a printed version of it, but they still had a lot of work to do. They stayed at the library until after midnight. I heard that my sister was really upset that she couldn't go to the recital. She felt really bad about it. I told her I was fine, but she kept apologizing. My dad recorded the performance on his camera. So we are going to watch the video of my recital together at a later time. She is such a sweet sister.
