A. A Bad mark
Teacher (John) - Student (Panos)
Panos: Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
John: Hey, relax! Take 10 deep breaths and tell me what happened, Panos.
Panos: I didn’t write well in a test! I can’t stand getting bad marks!
John: In which subject?
John: How bad?
John: I agree with you! I would feel like you, too!
Don’t worry! Next time you write better. You had better study more
Panos: Thank you! I hope to do better next time.
John: But if you write bad again or even worse… you shouldn’t feel so angry. It isn’t good for
Panos: Yes, you are right. I will try to study more.
John: Panos, go home and forget about it, ok?
It is not worth worrying about a mark.
Panos: Yes, sir!
