• Excuse me, Professor. Do you have a minute?
  • Oh, Jenny. Sure. Come on in.
  • Have a seat.
  • What can I do for you?
  • Um. About the test on Friday…
  • Yes?
  • Well, I'm going back to New York this weekend to attend my brother's wedding.
  • I'm planning to leave early on Friday, but our class meets late in the afternoon.
  • Oh…
  • Anyway, I'd like to miss class on Friday, and I was wondering if it would be possible for me to take the test on the following Tuesday.
  • Hmm. I'd prefer you take it on Friday.
  • Could you come in early Friday morning to take the test?
  • Yeah. That'll be fine.
  • How early is too early?
  • How early is too early?
    "How early is too early?"は"When is the earliest time I could come?"の意味。「一番早くて何時がご都合よろしいですか?」
  • I'll be here at 8:00 if you want to take the test then.
  • Absolutely. Thanks so much.
  • Okay. See you next Friday at 8:00.
  • Okay. Thanks.
  • Bye.
  • Bye.
