Emily:  How are you?

Jen:  I’m doin’ good today.

Emily:  Good. How do you know Steph?

Jen:  We used to go to, well we first met when we went to school together, at the community college up the street.

Emily:  Uh huh.

Jen:  Gosh. That was many years ago.

Emily:  Really? Are you from Portland?

Jen:  Uh, originally. But I had, I just moved back from the state of Ohio last week.

Emily:  What were you doing there?

Jen:  Well, that’s, I went to high school there. And, so, I thought I was here for college, that I wanted to return home after college. But I, when I went back, I realized that NW is where my heart is. So, back to Oregon I am.

Emily:  So, how long have you been back in Portland?

Jen:  Just, like, not even a week.

Emily:  Really?

Jen:  Yeah.

Emily:  Do you love it?

Jen:  I do! I’m so happy.

Emily:  Are you really glad to be back?

Jen:  It is. It’s so green here! It’s just so, I love it! I love the people and the feeling.

討論

When you meet someone for the first time, it’s normal to try to find out about them. How do you find out about people you are meeting? You ask them questions, of course! What kinds of questions does Emily ask Jen? Can you think of any other questions that you might ask someone you just met?

When I meet someone for the first time, I usually try not to ask too personal questions.  It also depends that where you meet that person. For example if I meet him/her in work place, I will ask questions about his previous jobs, his collage or his way of going to work but If I visit him in a swimming pool for example, I will ask him questions such as his favorite sports and his swimming experiences.
