Natasha: That is your first aid certificate. You passed. Got 100 percent.

Angus: Mum thought it was a bit hard for me, but I proved Mum wrong.

Natasha: Did you?

Angus: Yes, I hopefully will get past TAFE.

Natasha: Of course you will.

Angus: I’ll prove it.

Natasha: Absolutely.

Angus: I reckon I will.

[Working on the computer]

Angus: I always put sentences on the computer, makes it easier for me to do it on the computer.

Natasha: The thing is too, if you’ve got more skills, and reading and writing, you can learn other things.

Angus: I already know how to do cooking because I’ve done a cooking course at TAFE.

Natasha: Did you?

Angus: Yep.

Natasha: I didn’t know that, you should be bringing me food.


Natasha: I didn’t know that! That’s something I didn’t know.
