A dialogue between two friends about student politics.
Lamia : Hi Rafia! How are you?
Rafia : I am fine. And you?
Lamia : I am physically fit but worried about a matter.
Rafia : What’s that?
Lamia : That’s student politics of our country.
Rafia : Yes, I got the point. I am now a university student and I often become victim of it. Our academic activities are badly affected because of dirty student politics.
Lamia : I am not exception to you. I also have had dreadful experience of it. Couple of months ago one student of our university was brutally killed by some armed cadres of a political party.
Rafia : Can you tell me why student politics in our country has lost its glorious past?
Lamia : Yes, of course. Now a days students do not do politics for establishing any ideology . Rather, they engage in politics to earn money and to exercise influence over others. At times they engaged themselves in extortion and abduction .
Rafia : Why cannot we come out of it?
Lamia : I think even a mere baby can understand it. Main political parties of our country harbour and nourish student leaders for their ill political motive.
Rafia : You mean the students of our country are being used by our political parties.
Lamia : Yes, I mean so. I think our students are used as stair to go to power.
Rafia : I think this dirty student politics should be banned immediately. What’s your opinion about it?
Lamia : You are absolutely right. I agree with you on this point. But how can we ban it?
Rafia : All major political parties will have to sit together and have to be unanimous on important national issues like student politics.
Lamia : Do you think our political parties will do it?
Rafia : They will not do it willingly. Mass people will have to create pressure on them to do it.
Lamia : I fuly agree with you. Thank your for your valuable discussion.
Rafia : You are welcome.

Rashed : What do they do then?
Jamil : They have to be enrolled in lower standard universities. Besides, they have to attend a language course after being enrolled in the universities.
Rashed : Is the language course very expensive?
Jamil : Yes, overseas students have to pay a lot of money for this.
Rashed : That means students should learn English well if they want to acquire higher education from world class university.

A dialogue between two friends about the students’ failure in English.
Sonia : Hello, Saba! How are you?
Saba : I am fine. And you?
Sonia : I am also fine but a bit worried about a matter.
Saba : What’s the matter?
Sonia : Every year many students fail in English in different academic examinations. Have you noticed it?
Saba : Yes, I have noticed it.
Sonia : Can you tell me the reason?
Saba : Of course. There are many reasons of failure in English. First and foremost, our method of teaching English as a foreign language is faulty. Most of the teachers are not trained. Moreover, in many educational institutes especially in villages there is no English teacher at all.
Sonia : Is there any other reason?
Saba : Yes, there are some other reasons. Class size is unreasonably big. Thus, teachers find it difficult to make the classes interactive.
Sonia : Do you think students are also responsible for their failure in English?
Saba : Some students are responsible for this. They have not true eagerness to learn. They cram answers without proper understanding. Most of the time they do not prepare the answers of their own. Rather, they get it done by their tutors.
Sonia : You are absolutely right. I fully agree with you. I think fear of English is also another reason of failure in English.
Saba : I also think so . Owing to this, many students avoid reading and writing English.
Sonia : I think it is high time we started taking necessary measures. Thank you for your discussion.
Saba : You’re welcome.
A dialogue between two friends about the preparation of coming/ensuing examination.
Monika : Good morning, Ratna.
Ratna : Good morning. How are you?
Monika : I’m well, but afraid of my upcoming examination.
Ratna : Haven’t you completed your courses?
Monika : I have completed all the subjects except English. I am afraid of English.
Ratna : Why are you afraid of English?
Monika : It seems very hard to me. Besides, I cannot write anything of my own. Thus, I cram the answers without understanding properly.
Ratna : I see. As you cram the answers, you forget the same while writing in the examination hall.
Monika : You are absolutely right. If I forget a topic once, I can’t remember it again. As a result, I get poor score in the exam.
Ratna : Do you understand grammatical rules well?
Monika : Grammatical rules also seem very hard to me. Sometimes I cannot apply the rules in the sentences.
Ratna : I think you should try to understand the answer before memorising it. You should also remove your fear of English.
Monika : How can I do it? I have a few days before my exam.
Ratna : Don’t worry. Try to remove your English phobia if needed. I will help you understand it.
Monika : Thank you for your nice co-operation.
Ratna : You’re welcome.
