Skit 1 Jack and Jill (college students) talk about their day and then Jack tries to ask Jill out for coffee.
Skit 1 Jack: Hello, is this Jill? Jill: Hi, this is her. Who is speaking? Jack: Hi Jill, this is Jack from your Chemistry class. How are you doing? Jill: Oh, Hi Jack, I am doing well. What's going on?
Skit 1 Jack: The usual. I was just calling to see how your day went. Jill: It was a very busy day for me. I had to take two quizzes and then participate in volleyball practice after classes for two hours.
Skit 1 Jack: Wow, it sounds like you are very active. How do you find time to do homework? Jill: I often have to stay up very late to get my studying done. This semester has been very stressful, I can't wait until winter break.
Skit 1 Jack: Winter break is a long wait. Why don't we have a coffee break right now? Jill: Hmmm, sounds tempting, but I have a lot to do. Jack: Oh really… taking a break and caffeine will help you to concentrate better. We won't spend more than 15 minutes chatting ok? Jill: You are right, I could use a break and a warm latte. Maybe you can help me with my chemistry homework afterwards.
Skit 1 Jack: Of course I can, I finished it yesterday. Great, I'll see you soon then. Don't be late! Jill: Ok, call me when you get there. Bye-bye.

Skit 2 Bob: Hello, is Jane there? John: Hi, no she's not. May I ask who is speaking? Bob: My name is Bob, and I met Jane last night at the art gallery. She told me to give her a call. John: Well, my name is John, and I am her boyfriend. Do you want to leave her a message?
Skit 2 Bob: Oh, I didn't know she had a boyfriend. Just tell her that Bob from the art gallery called. John: Sure, no problem. I'll let her know you called (rolls eyes). Take care. Bob: Thank you, goodbye. (hangs up) John: Hmmm, I am going to have to talk to Jane about Bob.
