    • ENGLISH CONVERSATIONABOUT LIVES OF STUDENTS AND BOARDING HOUSERS Written by: LELU DINA APRISTIA 1Gama Yudha| PTM12
    • KATA PENGANTAR Hallo para mahasiswa dan juga para anak kos. Sebagai mahasiswa, kita belajar dan berusahamenjadi ilmuwan yang bermanfaat bagi diri kita sendiri dan bagi orang lain. Sebagai anak kos, kitaberupaya menjadi sosok mandiri yang bisa bersosialisasi dengan orang lain. Sebagai mahasiswa dananak kos, kita belajar menjadi pribadi akademis dan juga pribadi sosial pada berbagai situasi dankondisi; tidak hanya pribadi akademis dan pribadi sosial yang bertaraf regional, tetapi juga nasionalserta internasional. Untuk bisa menjadi pribadi yang demikian, kita harus menguasai bahasainternasional yang tidak lain dan tidak bukan ialah Bahasa Inggris; tidak hanya yang pasif, tetapi jugaaktif. Bahasa Inggris yang aktif menurut hemat penulis mengacu pada kecakapan berbicara(speaking) dan menulis (writing). Pada kesempatan ini, penulis akan menitikberatkan padakecakapan berbicara (speaking) yang temanya ialah seputar kehidupan para mahasiswa dan paraanak kos, sebab menurut penulis masih belum ada buku yang menitikberatkan percakapan BahasaInggris bagi para mahasiswa dan para anak kos. Secara sederhana, buku ini merupakan buku percakapan Bahasa Inggris yang aplikatifmengenai kehidupan sehari-hari para mahasiswa dan anak kos. Akhir kata, hidup mahasiswa! hidupanak kos! Salam, Lelu Dina Apristia 2Gama Yudha| PTM12

You’re getting the third turn.Alex : Whose turn is it now?Benny : First turn surely.Alex : Would it be long?Benny : I hope it isn’t. Anyway, why did you wake up late?Alex : Last night, I slept late since I had a lot of homework. Besides, I watched football match.Benny : No wonder. You really like football.Alex : That’s right. By watching football, we can analyze whether a player can play well or not.What about you? Are you also late?Benny : Nope. I am used to take a shower in the morning like this time.Alex : Hmm... got it. Well, I think your turn comes. Come on, go, go!Benny : Easy, Buddy.LATE TO COME INTO A CLASSAlex : May I come in, Sir/Mam?Lecturer : Come over here. Why are you late?
