  • So let’s listen to some conversations which show you how you can talk about safety concerns.

  • It will help you build up your English fluency.

  • So let’s get started!!

  • I don't know what’s happening to the world?

  • What happened? Why do you look so upset?

  • Crimes are increasing every day! What’s wrong with people?

  • So many people live in adverse circumstances. Some people are not left with much choice.

  • Is that it?

  • Also, sometimes lack of good parenting leads to crimes.

  • I guess, people are just not ready to accept what they have

  • and the greed to have more leads them to illegal activities, even murder.

  • You know what I think? Our society should take a stand against every crime. Then things would improve!

  • Wait! I have to go back upstairs.

  • Why? Were already behind schedule.

  • I have to check the terrace gate.

  • What’s the matter?

  • Maybe I forgot to lock it.

  • No, you didn’t. I locked it myself before coming down.

  • Are you sure?

  • Yes. I'm sure.

  • I just want to make sure the kids are safe when we aren’t around.

  • Don’t worry. I’ve checked everything. Youre just being over concerned.

  • Is this fire alarm system enough to protect the school premises from fire?

  • Yes, it is. These fire alarms have been installed in every wing of the school.

  • As soon as they ring, the water sprinklers will start automatically.

  • Are there any safe exit points for students?

  • Yes. Theyll be directed to move to the north parking lot.

  • Alright. Are the students being trained to know what to do when the alarm goes off?

  • Absolutely! Every semester we conduct fire drills so the students know what to do in case of a fire.

  • That’s good!

  • What are you watching?

  • Our mayor’s statement on the crime rate in our state.

  • What does he have to say about it?

  • He says the crime rate has substantially reduced in the last couple of years.

  • Really? Two crimes in one night two blocks away, and he says the crime rate is improving?

  • Maybe he’s talking about his own neighborhood.

  • Harmful or unpleasant situations, against your well-being.

  • If you grow up without enough food, you grew up in adverse circumstances.

  • When you have to do something you don’t want to do,

  • with no other option, you say you are not left with much choice.

  • Bringing up children is called parenting.

  • There’s good parenting, and there’s not-so-good parenting.

  • Sometimes parenting is fun, and sometimes it’s not at all fun.

  • Late and not ready by the planned time.

  • Dinner might be behind schedule because you were late getting home,

  • and the trains might be behind schedule because of an accident or weather.

  • The boundaries of the school property, including the building itself and the land around it.

  • During the school day, you must stay on the school premises.

  • A fire drill is an exercise whose objective is to train people for emergencies.

  • Its objective is to make sure people will know how to get out of a building quickly and safely in case of a fire.

  • Very much or to great extent.

  • Examples: The price of gasoline has increased substantially.

  • I weigh substantially more than I did in high school!
