Jorge: Hey, Marta! Have you finished the exam?
Marta: Yes, I have. Whew!
Jorge: Was it hard?
Marta: Well, yes. It was hard — pretty hard.
Jorge: Did you pass?
Marta: I don’t know. Mrs. Nadler didn’t tell me.
Jorge: What questions did she ask?
Marta: First she asked me what my name was.
Jorge: That was easy, wasn’t it?
Marta: Yes, except I couldn’t remember! Then she asked me where I came from and how long I’d been studying here at the institute.
Jorge: And what else did she ask?
Marta: She asked when I had begun taking English, and she asked how I would use English in the future.
Jorge: Yes, yes, go on.
Marta: Then she asked me if I liked the institute and if i lived with my parents.
Jorge: Anything else?
Marta: I’m trying to remember, Jorge. Oh, yes! She asked if I spoke any other languages.
Jorge: Is that all?
Marta: Oh, there were a lot of other questions. She asked me what my hobbies were, and she asked me to tell her about them. Then she gave me a picture and asked me to describe it. Then I was asked to read a passage.
Jorge: What did she say at the end?
Marta: Hm. Let’s see... Oh, Yes! She asked me to tell you to go in - right away.
