1. Siti and Jane are exchanging their opinions on bullying topic.
2. They’re having a casual conversation about bullying.
3. Sample answer: I agree with Jane. I believe that bullying shouldn’t be done in any way possible even if it’s only a small teasing. I also think that bullying is everyone’s problems, so if we see someone is being bullied, we have to try to stop that.
4. Sample answer: No, I haven’t. But I imagine I would be very sad and angry if I ever witnessed bullying.
Note: If you have witnessed bullying you can say ‘yes’ and describe how you felt. But if you haven’t, you can say ‘no’ and make a sentence using grammar to explain hypothetical/imaginary situation. The pattern is: I would be + adjective + if + I ever witnessed bullying.
