Occasionally, someone will come to you with bad news. How should you respond? In this Real Talk episode, hosts Andrew and Kassy discuss the different ways you can be a good friend when responding to bad news.
We’re going to listen to a conversation between two friends. And, unfortunately, one of the friends has some bad news to share, because he just failed his driver’s licence test. So we’ll listen to that conversation. And then after we do, Kassy and I will break down that conversation and we’ll take a close look at the expressions that you need to know in order to be able to respond to hearing bad news like this in a very natural way.
The example dialogue in this episode revolves around a driver’s licence test. Although the legal driving age in most countries is 18, there are jurisdictions in Canada and the United States where you can start driving at the age of 14 with parental supervision.
