I am getting fat
Dan : Wow, I'm really getting fat.
Melissa : You don't look fat.
Dan : Yes, but I am. I've gained 10 pounds in the last two months. Look at my stomach.
Melissa : How much do you weigh?
Dan : I think about 170 pounds.
Melissa : What kind of foods do you eat?
Dan : I usually have pasta for dinner. Sometimes I get take-out or fast food if I don't have enough time to cook.
Melissa : I was reading a diet book the other day. It said that if you eat meat and nothing else, you'll lose weight quickly.
Dan : Wow, does that work?
Melissa : I don't know, but someone told me they tried it and lost 20 pounds.
Dan : That sounds good, but I'm not sure how long I could do that.
Melissa : I know, once you start eating vegetables and bread again you'll probably start gaining weight.
Dan : Well, I think I'm going to try it anyway. Who's the author?
Melissa : I can't remember. It's not that popular anymore. When I get home I'll check and give you a call.
As the world becomes additional world and integrated community, English language plays a vital role in connecting people and their ideas to at least one another. www.engforu.com is created by Maung Maung One. My goal is, the people of Myanmar need to develop English Language must be supported as much as I can. Its purpose was to help expand learner access to the Basic English. I would like to give our special thanks to BBC, VOA for graciously allowing us to use their news stories as a basis of our learning activities. Their stories, photos and videos have made learning interesting and appropriate for adults.
