English Conversation About The Time
What time is it?
It is 5:30. Why?
I think I’m going to be late. I have a meeting at 5:45.
Late! Why? You still have 15 minutes. That’s plenty of time.
No it isn’t. It’s Tuesday. Today there is so much traffic.
How long does it normally take to get there?
Normally. It takes 10 minutes. But if there’s traffic it’ll take more than 30 minutes. A half an hour!
Well, since you are already late, why not just stay here? Can you miss your meeting?
Yeah it’s not that important. I’ll just call them and tell them I won’t make it today.
Sure, and you can leave earlier next time.
