Berikut ini adalah contoh percakapan antara 3 (tiga) orang yaitu Ronald, Lia, dan Librarian dalam bahasa Inggris di perpustakaan.
Ronald : Where can I find books of sociology?
Librarian: It’s on the social science section back there.
Ronald : Thank you.
Lia : Huh? … Ronald? Is that you? What are you doing here in school library?
Ronald : Um?… Oh, hey there, Lia! What? You’re asking a strange question. Of course, I’m looking for some books to read.
Lia : Ha ha ha. No, it’s just rather unusual to see you in the library.
Ronald : Don’t tease me like that, Lia. I know it’s what an odd to see a person who never pays any attention to class like me being around looking for some books at school library like this [Showing sad expression].
Lia : Awh… um… I’m so sorry, Ronald. I don’t really mean my words to offend you. I was just surprised to see you here.
Ronald : Hahahahaha [Laugh out loud] don’t be so sorry, Lia. It was just acting.
Lia : Oh you, Ronald!
Librarian: Shussssssssh! [Shushing]
Lia : Whoa, we’re talking too loud, Ronald. It’s a library anyway [talks under breath].
Ronald : Okay, let’s lower our voices.
Lia : So, what brings you here?
Ronald : Don’t you remember back at the class? I got bad score for Sociology. Then Mr. Sutoyo asked me to do a Sociology-themed paper assignment if I want him to upgrade my score. He said that everything I need for this paper assignment is available in school’s library. So then I came here.
Lia : Oh I see. I think it’s good for you, so anything on your mind is not just playing without studying.
Ronald : Errrh…. You’re just talking like Mr. Sutoyo.
Lia : That’s right, Ronald. What if he doesn’t pass you to the next grade if you always fail at his subject because you have no intention to fix your scores?
Ronald : But…. Err…. Alright, you’re probably right. So, what kind of lesson book you are looking for or trying to read, Lia?
Lia : Um… I’m not interesting to read lesson books now. I’m looking for some novels.
Ronald : Novels? They have novels here at library?
Lia : Yeah, Ron. It’s not only lesson books you can find here. There are also some encyclopedias, magazines, bulletins, and newspapers.
Ronald : Okay, I never know that.
Lia : Have you found the books you’re looking for, by the way?
Ronald : Yep, I think these all would be enough.
Lia : Okay, let’s go to the librarian.
Librarian: Your student ID card, please. Alright, these books have to be returned in 14 days.
Lia : Thank you, Sir.
Ronald : Thank you.
Lia : Okay, Ronald, see ya! Good luck with your assignment!
Ronald : Thanks, Lia. Bye!
