VOCABULARY
1. Listen and read
Mai: (on the phone)... OK, bye-bye. See you tomorrow.
Mai`s grandma: Who was that?
Mai: Oh, one of my classmates, Granny.
Mai`s grandma: It was Nam that called you again. Right?
Mai: Yes. He called about our grammar homework.
Mai`s grandma: You shouldn`t talk to him all the time. I don`t want to be too strict with you, but... I think you`re too young to start a relationship with a boy.
Mai: Granny, we`re just friends, and he`s not my boyfriend.
Mai`s grandma: Well, I`m afraid there`s no real friendship between a boy and a girl. You know, Mai, I`m worried you`ll get involved in a romantic relationship sooner or later.
Mai: Don`t worry, Granny. Nam and my other friends are good students. We just talk about schoolwork and things like that.
Mai`s grandma: I don`t know why boys and girls are allowed to be in the same school nowadays. When I was your age, we went to single-sex schools.
Mai: Didn`t you feel bored?
Mai`s grandma: Of course not. We were like one big family. I had some very close friends.
Mai: It`s the same in my school. In my class, we`re all good friends and help each other. All my classmates are very kind, caring and sympathetic.
Mai`s grandma: Sounds good. But... listen, Mai, I hope you`re just friends with the boys. It`s your studies that you should concentrate on.
Mai: I know that, Granny.
