HIROKO:Well,to speak frankly,I read my notes too!At the time,it was a relief to do it this way,but actually when I had finished,I didn't feel any real sense of satisfaction.I didn't feel positive about the experience at all.
SPIROS:That's a pity.You know,although I was pleased with my presentation,I am not so pleased with my actual performance right now in the tutorials - during the whole semester I've not said anything in our tutorial discussions.Not a word.
HIROKO:Really,Spiros?Why's that?Do the other students talk too much?
SPIROS:It's partly that,but it's mostly because I have had no confidence to speak out.Their style of speaking is so different - it's not the style we were used to during the course.They use so many colloquialisms,they're not very polite and sometimes there seems to be no order in their discussion.Also,they are very familiar with each other,so because they know each other's habits,they can let each other into the discussion.
HIROKO:You're right,Spiros,I've experienced that too.
