Click on Listen All and follow along. After becoming comfortable with the entire conversation, become Person A by clicking on the Person A button. You will hear only Person B through the audio file. There will be a silence for you to repeat the sentences of Person A. Do the same for Person B. The speed of the conversation is native speed. Use the pause button if the pause between each sentence is too fast for you. After practicing several times, you will be able to speak as fast as a native.

A: "Do you go to school here?"
B: "No. I go to a different university."
A: "So do you know Johnny?"
B: "I came here with a friend who knows Johnny. I met him a couple of times. He's a cool guy. So you go to this school?"
A: "Yeah."
B: "What year are you?"

B: "That's life I guess."
A: "I'm going to get another drink. It was nice meeting you."
