A: "What are you afraid of?"
B: "I'm not sure. I used to be scared of a lot of things when I was young, but not anymore."
A: "Are you afraid of death?"
B: "Only if I think about it so much. But death is inevitable, so there is no use thinking about it."
A: "How about horror movies?"
B: "No. I know they're all fake so there is nothing to be afraid of. How about you?"
A: "I get scared pretty easily. I'm actually frightened of bee's."
B: "Really? Why?"
A: "I don't know. I got stung when I was young and ever since, I've always been afraid of them."
B: "What other things are you afraid of?"
A: "Sitting by the camp fire and telling horror stories is very scary."
B: "Wow. You're afraid of many things huh?"
A: "I guess so. Aren't you afraid of something coming out of the bushes?"
B: "It's not going to happen. We probably went camping dozens of times and nothing ever came out of the bushes. What makes you think something will?"
A: "I don't know. I guess I'm terrified at the possibility."
B: "If you were realistic, you probably wouldn't be scared of everything. Maybe you have too much imagination."
A: "I should try to think more realistically. I'll do that."
B: "Good. After awhile, you won't be afraid of so many things."
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 Sayar 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.
