|Johanna:||Hmmm … I’m not surprised. I heard that back in high school she was the teacher’s pet.|
|Margarita:||What do you mean?|
|Johanna:||Well, she was always the teacher’s favourite student because she was such a hard worker.|
|Margarita:||I can understand that. Even now she works hard.|
|Johanna:||That’s for sure.|
|Margarita:||How about you, Johanna. How were you as a student in high school?|
|Johanna:||I had potential, but I was always skipping classes. It wasn’t until university that I really began to apply myself.|
|Margarita:||Well, at least you worked hard in university. That’s where it really matters.|
|Johanna:||I suppose. Once I began to work hard I passed with flying colours.|
|Margarita:||Are you ready for our next session?|
|Johanna:||I sure am, but who will be moderating?|
