Speaker 1: It was absolutely dreadful. Everyone was staring at me. I turned bright red and wished I were a thousand miles away. I could never have imagined walking out on stage to receive my degree in front of all those people only to fall flat on my face. People tried not to laugh, but I guess I must have looked pretty amusing. My mum says I’m making a fuss about nothing. She thinks I should be proud to have been awarded a first class grade. But she didn’t have to hear all the jokes about it afterwards from the other students.
Speaker 2: My heart was beating like mad. It was so dark that I couldn’t see a thing. I managed to find matches and light a candle. I knew I was alone in the house, so what were those noises coming from upstairs? Now when I think back on it I’m so ashamed. It was silly to have been so terrified. I crept slowly up the stairs holding a frying pan and as my brother came around the corner I almost hit him with it. Fortunately, I recognized who it was just in time, or he could have had a very nasty bump on his head. Looking back, I can see the funny side of it but at the time I was scared to death.
Speaker 3: The whole thing was hilarious. I told Jane I would be waiting at the park bench by the duck pond wearing а blue hat. I arrived late and saw her walking towards the bench, then suddenly she hugged a stranger wearing a blue hat. The stranger stood up, staring at Jane in shock. Then Jane spotted me walking towards her and we both laughed! After all, it was a simple mistake, so nothing to be ashamed about.
Speaker 4: Call it luck or chance, it was an amazing coincidence. My friend Paul had been looking for a job for some time. I hadn’t seen him for at least a month. Then one morning at work I looked up from my desk and there he was right in front of me with a big smile on his face. I was so astonished. I didn’t know what to say. He had not only got a job at the same company as me but I was thrilled to hear we would be working together, too. It’s strange how things turn out sometimes.
Speaker 5: I’ll never forget the feeling of stage fright. This was a big step for me. I mean the thought of talking to a crowd that large made my stomach chum. As I was waiting, I began to sweat and my legs felt weak. Thoughts like “What am I doing here?” or “I can’t do this” were racing through my head. Just when I was ready to turn around and run off the stage, they announced my name. I smiled anxiously and walked over to the microphone. Surprisingly enough, it went okay, but I definitely don’t want to go through that again!
