This conversation is between a woman who works in the library (A) and a man who is the manager of a little store (B). There was a movie playing in the library that they talked about, and their conversation topic changed quickly. I only listened to this conversation for about 3 or four minutes. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

This is a conversation between a guy (A) and a girl (B) in a lounge watching The Bachelor. They were very talkative during this show and had a lot of comments to make towards it. I listened and took down what they were saying for about 10 minutes. There were some moments where they didn’t talk for some seconds, but then they would pick the conversation back up. Also, they would talk about random topics too. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
