1. Pre-Listening Exercises [Top]

Imagine that your 16-year-old daughter is about to leave on her first date. What questions do you ask her before she leaves? Are you concerned at all? Why or why not?

HELPFUL TIP: For some people, going to the movies is a common dating activity, but it's hard to get to know each other by just sitting in the dark. Instead, you might consider going for drive, hiking in the mountains, or making dinner together.couple
