Sample transcript

Harp: Yeah, we have both done the teaching English in Korea. So how long were you there for?

Jessie: I was there for one year.

Harp: One year in Korea, and where in Korea were you?

Jessie: I was near a town called Geung-jo.

Harp: Which is in the south?

Jessie: Yeah, it is way in the south of Korea.

Harp: OK, so tell me about your year there.

Jessie: Well, I had a pretty incredible year there. I experienced a lot of new things there: I met some really great people, saw some really neat mountains, and did some hiking. Overall, it was one of the best years of my life.

Harp: I agree, I would say the exact same thing. Definitely! So now what did you think of the food?

Jessie: I have to say that I loved the food!

Harp: Really?

Jessie: I did.

Harp: I agree with you one hundred percent!
