BACK TO A2
1. …played a game?
2. …rode a bike?
3. …had a snack?
4. …read a book?
5. …watched T.V.?
6. …called a friend?
7. …had a swim?
8. …stayed up late?
A: Oh, I just finished one the other day. It was a novel by J.K.Churchly.
B: Well, the last time was when I was very small. It was a three-wheeler!
C: Just the other day, actually. My friend has a pool in her garden.
D: A couple of weeks ago I played chess with my mate John. Yeah, I think that was the last time.
E: Don’t tell anyone, because I’m on a diet! But on the bus here*, I had a small bar of chocolate!
F: What, an all-nighter, like until 5 a.m.? I can’t remember when I last did that.
G: Last Friday, I rang my best friend Sarah to, you know, meet up for a drink and that.
H: I suppose it was like, 3 or 4 days ago. A nature documentary, I think. I like them**.
* The word ‘here’ is emphasized more than ‘bus’ because the person is speaking about their journey to here on the bus, not that they are here, now on the bus. Changing the stress (emphasis) changes the meaning!
