Anne: Are you ready for the talk you're giving today?
Sean: What's this about?
Saori: I'm speaking to a group of high school students who are coming on a tour of our office about the work I do.
Sean: Nice. What specifically are they here to find out?
Saori: About working in an office where I have to speak English. The students are in an English-intensive course at their school, and a lot of them are aspiring to get jobs that require English.
Anne: I've always been so impressed with how good your English skills are though you've never spent a substantial amount of time in an English-speaking place.
Saori: I started out watching Sesame Tweet on TV, and went on to watch a lot of American TV programs and movies.
Sean: Are you serious? You've never studied abroad?
Sean: I had no idea. That should be especially encouraging to the students you'll be talking to, then.
Anne: (The phone rings) Hello. OK, I'll let her know. (Hangs up the phone) Saori, it's showtime.
