Conversation 1

W: Kyle, how did your (8) driver's theory exam go? It was yesterday, right?
M: Yes, I prepared it as much as I could, but I was so nervous since it was my second try. The people who worked at the test center were very kind, though. We had a little conversation which calmed me down a bit, and that was just what I needed. Then, after the exam, they printed out my result, but I was afraid to open it until I was outside. It was such a relief to pass.
W: Congratulations! I knew you could do it! (9) I guess you underestimated how difficult it would be the first time, didn't you? I hear a lot of people make that mistake and go in underprepared. But good job in passing the second time. I'm so proud of you. Now all you have to do next is your road test. Have you had any lessons yet?
M: (10) Yes, thanks. I'm so happy to be actually on the road now. I've only had two driving lessons so far and my instructor is very understanding. So I'm really enjoying it and I can't wait for my next session although the lessons are rather expensive. Twenty pounds an hour, and the instructor says, I'll need about 30 to 40 lessons in total. That's what--six to eight hundred pounds! (11) So this time I'll need to make a lot more effort and hopefully will be successful the first time.
M: Well, good luck!
