Rebecca and Santiago are sitting next to each other on the first day of the semester. 

Rebecca: Hi, I’m Rebecca. 

Santiago: Hey, I’m Santiago. Nice to meet you. 

Rebecca: Nice to meet you, too. Have you taken a class with Professor Matson before?

Santiago: No, I haven’t, but I’ve heard really great things from other students. 

Rebecca: So have I. My friend told me that the exams are difficult, but that if you read for class and take notes during the lectures you’ll be okay. 

Santiago: That’s great. Are you taking a lot of classes this semester?

Rebecca: Ya, I’m taking a full 18 credits. I think it will be a stressful semester. 

Santiago: Oh, wow! I’ve taken 18 credits before and I was always at the library. I’m only taking 9 credits this semester. 

Rebecca: Well, that part I like! I’m a bit of a bookworm actually. Oh! I think class is about to start.

Santiago: You’re right. We’ll keep talking after.
