Formal conversation between two persons about semester exams
Professor 1: Did you hear what the dean said?
Professor 2: I just can’t believe my ears. She said we will have to complete the syllabus in a matter of two weeks as they have preponed the semester examinations.
Professor 1: They think it is a joke to teach a big fat book in a matter of two weeks.
Professor 2: What shall we do now?
Professor 1: We can’t do anything. It is not in our hands.
Professor 2: Do you have any idea to get this done?.
Professor 1: Umm..I think I have one.
Professor 2: What is that?
Professor 1: We have to plan extra classes and cover the remaining syllabus so that the students don’t have to go through any academic loss.
Professor 2: This sounds like a good idea!
Professor 1: So when shall we plan for these extra classes?
Professor 2: Are you free now? I mean we can plan it now if you don’t have any class to teach.
Professor 1: Yeah sure, we can plan it now. I don’t have any further lectures for an hour.
Professor 2: Perfect then. Do you have any suggestions on how to conduct these extra classes or do you have any plans to conduct these classes?
Professor 1: Yes, how about we conduct these extra classes after an hour when the students have completed all their lectures?
Professor 2: I think that will become hectic for the students. They will be tired.
Professor 1: Yeah that’s understandable too. Do you have any other ideas?
Professor 2: Yes, how about we conduct extra classes on Saturdays until the remaining portion is over?
Professor 1: Absolutely, we can do that and the students won’t be tired too!
Professor 2: We can teach them just for half-day, from 7 am to 11 am so that they can enjoy the rest of their weekend.
Professor 1: Yes, I was about to say that.
Professor 2: Alright then, we will let the class know about these extra lectures tomorrow.
Professor 1: Yes, sounds good. I’ll see you then!
Professor 2: See you too.
