Step 1

Study the powerpoint to learn this week’s idioms.

Step 2

Now that you are more familiar with the idioms, listen to the dialogue. Can you hear the idioms in the conversation?

Step 3

Now, read the script of the dialog. Listen to the dialog again. This is one of the best ways to build your listening skills!

John:Hey Antonio, I thought you were going to run for student body president this year?
Antonio:That was my plan but I think that position is out of my league.
John:What? I don’t know of any other person more perfect for the position than you!
Antonio:Thanks, John but I saw a lot of seniors who are interested in running. I’m only a freshman! I think I’ll play it safe and concentrate on my studies.
John:You’re too brilliant to just sit on the sidelines. So many students look up to your leadership! Tell you what, I’ll call our team tomorrow and meet. Maybe we can kick around some ideas for your campaign.
Antonio:You really think I have a shot at it? Sure, I’d love to meet with you and your team tomorrow! See you then!
