Hi, Yayoi. How are you settling in?
Fine, but the water pressure in the restroom is too low. Can we increase the pressure?
As far as I am aware, the water pressure can’t be changed. It’s meant to save water.
I see. Do you like this new office?
Well, I can’t speak for everyone, but I like it better than the old one.
I have to say it has its good and bad points.
OK, I’ve completed my sections for the presentation. How is your writing coming along, Takuma?
Um, I haven’t started writing yet.
What? We only have two days until our presentation.
I have been thinking about the graphics. We need to use brighter colors this time.
Right, but there are more important things to consider.
I also wanted to include a section on Roman gladiators.
That’s interesting, but it’s not exactly connected to our present topic.
The population of our city is increasing, and we’re having more traffic accidents.
Why are they happening?
There’re not enough space for both cyclists and pedestrians. We need a solution.
I can see your point, but I think you need to be more specific.
We need more bicycle lanes.
You’re right up to a point, but there’s another issue.
Many roads are already too narrow.
Ryker, did you hear that Mr. Campbell is leaving?
I can’t believe it. He’s a strict teacher, but I like him.
He’s very popular. Let’s organize a farewell party for him.
Good idea. We can surprise him by throwing a cake in his face.
We need to do something he’ll never forget.
You have a point, but don’t you think we should do something less drastic?
I guess so.

I heard Mary is planning to marry John. Let’s organize a party!
That’s great news, but as far as I know, Mary is going out with Ken, not John.
I’ll check that with Mary and get back to you, OK?

What do you think?
I take your point, but still I don’t think you should use that tone of voice with the coach.
If he leaves, what are we going to do?
