I think I found a good conversation to recognize a new vocabulary. All kind of vocabulary or phrases are good here such as it was filled with people, we've always made four of us, to get into the room, and to be tried always of taking photos.

Yes, I have the similar conservation about the old photo and to explain misunderstanding me related with project. My friend thinks that I didn't want her to my group. It was not true because my group have already fulled with ten people. But she misunderstand to me. I explained her "don't think like that" but she didn't understand.

i had a similar conversation , it was about an old photo when we were younger , i think this might be a new word it went quite well

Yes.I do have a similar conversation.I've been looking for a job and I've had two interviews, but I haven't found a suitable job yet.I don't like holiday travel, because it's too crowded, if you stand on the high place, you can see many heads covering the scenic spot. Sometimes we open our old photo albums and review our wonderful moments.

I had such conversations as ones in the third topic. Since I left to study we rarely meet with my sister. When I return home we usually recollect the days of our childhood. Sometimes we open the old album. We are so suprised to see us so little. But these moments do us closer to each other.

prepared a lot
good luck with it
filled with people
i am tired of always taking photos

Recently when we were with my family in Paris. We would like visited Lover to watch on picture Mona Liza. Unfortunately we stayed out in the rain in line about one hour, but can't come into because it begin pandemic.
Concluded many public areas were closed. It was end February 2020.

I had a similar conversation as the first one. I'm a job seeker for the last six months, so I had many interviews in different companies. After each interview, I met my friends and explained to them how the interview went, what question did they ask me, and if there is any hope to receive that job. Also, I explained to them about those experiences and I compared them, sometimes I praised the interview panel about the professional attitude, and sometimes I complained about their silly question.
Also, I had a similar conversation with my parents about taking pictures during the holidays, they are complaining and being angry when I and my sibling are spending the best part of holidays in our phones, by taking the picture and chatting and as result, we are losing the best moments in holidays.

Pictures from your childhood and special occasions can bring wonderful and unforgettable memories. Sometimes a picture can be sent you back on time an make you feel the moments twice.

I never had a problem being part of the student's group, because usually, I organized them so I have selected people to be in my group. In this conversation I learned some phrases like;

I'm glad we could speak about it, it's not easy
filled with people.

Thank you.

I have had a conversation similar to conversation C when my friend and I look at the old photo album together. In the album, there is a picture taken when I was in grade 1. At that time, I was fatter and my hair is longer than now.
I learned some new phrases in these conversations such as:
- I think it went quite well.
- I did a lot of research and prepared a lot.
- Nothing much.
- We'll call you back with news in three or four days.
- Let's see...
- Wait a minute.
- I know.
- Exactly!
- I don't feel I'm enjoying things.
- I'm glad we could talk about this.

Dear team.
From the audio above.
Man: Yes, YES! You do remember. Barry, your boyfriend at high school.
What is the different from 'you do remember' and 'you are remember' ???
Thank you very much for your answer.
