You are listening to Dialogue Frog's English dialogue between two people. So, how did last night go?
Uh, it went pretty well.
And what were you doing again?
Uh, I was meeting with a teacher.
Oh yeah. Oh-, so-, are-, sometimes, I get nervous when I'm like meeting with, with my professors. How does it make you feel?
I also get nervous.
But my profe-, my professor is pretty, pretty chill.
I've, I've done that before. So I've gone out to have like coffee with professors. Um, also I've gone out to lunch with professors before, too. Just like talk over, uh, I guess, plans or ideas. What did you guys talk about?
Um, not really anything. We just crack jokes.
Well, that's a part of it too, right? Like it's relationship building because often your teacher or your professor becomes like a lifelong mentor. I know how that is. Yeah. Although I'm, I'm very bad at maintaining relationships over a very long period of time, but that's part of the idea, right? Is you're building a, a network, a professional network, and it starts with your teachers and your teachers kind of open doors for you. Were you, were you in a group with other students or it's just you and the professor?
Um, there were some other students there, but I had the, the, uh, the luxury seat of sitting next to him.
Ooh. The hot seat.
The hot seat.
Oh yeah. It is very interesting to kind of be talking with a professor outside of the classroom when, outside of their office. So when you're not on, when you're not in the campus space, but you still have that teacher-student relationship, but it's also in a more comfortable environment. It's a little less stiff maybe.
Yeah, for sure.
