SEGUNDO PASO: En esta segunda etapa, escucha el audio mientras lees la transcripción. Concéntrate en la entonación y ritmo de las frases.

Daniel:

So what were you like as a kid?

Luisa:

When I was a kid, I was kind of rebellious.

Daniel:

You? Really? What was the turning point?

Luisa:

When I graduated from high school.

Daniel:

What do you mean?

Luisa:

Until you graduate, you don't understand that life is just beginning. After I finished high school, I realized that I still had a lot to learn.

Daniel:

I know what you mean. I was really immature when I was a kid.

Luisa:

What changed?

Daniel:

I think I became more mature after I got my first job. Once you have a job, you learn to be more independent.

Luisa:

That's true. Where did you work?

Daniel:

In my father's bank.

Luisa:

Another turning point for me was when I got my dog, Pepper. I know that sounds silly, but it was really important to me.

Daniel:

Why was that so important?

Luisa:

Well, I was about eleven. I remember that having a dog – you know, he was mine – made me feel really responsible in a funny kind of way. He would follow me everywhere and was always waiting for me when I came home from school.

Daniel:

Actually, that sounds kind of nice. I never got to have a dog, but I remember when I got my first bicycle. That was a very important day for me. For the first time, I could go out on my own and go as far as I wanted to. I used to polish the bicycle every day and take really good care of it. Of course, that only lasted a few months, and then I lost interest in it!
