[Example Passage]
Marie had a bad cold, which she couldn't get over for a whole week. She was bored and felt like talking to someone, so she called her friend Dan. When Marie finally got through, Dan couldn't hear her. He was only saying: "Hello?" Marie tried again: now Dan could hear her, but very quietly. "Speak up, Marie! I can't hear anything you're saying!" Dan said angrily. Marie asked Dan to hold on for a second. In the end she was cut off completely. Marie will certainly write an angry letter to her phone company.
