Unit 1. The generation gap. Lesson 4. Speaking_13462158_20221110_052515

1. I'm not happy that my parents set a time for me to come home in the evening. They expect me to be home at 9 p.m.! I wish they allowed me to stay out later, say 9.30 or 10 p.m., so I can spend more time with my friends. I have asked them many times, but they don't want to change their mind. What should I do?


2. My parents don't like some of my friends just because of their appearance. They have their hair dyed in different colours and have pierced noses. However, these friends of mine are excellent students, and have always been very helpful and kind to me and other classmates. I wish my parents didn't judge them by their appearance, but got to know them better. What should I do?
