you.

So, before opening the matter, please enquire
after his health.

about the problem.

TASKS: Write dialogues for the following situations. Each

person in a dialogue can have four turns. Use both
encouraging expressions and utterances for enquiring
after someone.

been awarded a medal for his meritorious service.

2. A boy encourages his younger sister who is participating in a
dance competition for the first time.

3. A teacher conveys his enquiries to the Headmaster of another
school through a friend working in that school.

ACTIVITY: Pair work
Get your dialogues corrected by your teacher and role-play
them.
