How Questions | Often, Long, Well, Good
Lyn gives Tom some advice on getting in shape.
Tom: Hey Lyn! I've really been putting on a lot of weight. I need to do something about it. You're a health fanatic, aren't you? Maybe you could give some advice.
Lyn: Hmm. I'm not a fanatic. I just take care of myself unlike some around here.
Tom: OK. OK. Point taken. Well, maybe you can help. How often do I need to exercise?
Lyn: Well, every day doing a little would help.
Tom: OK. Maybe I can join the gym round the corner but I don’t always have a lot of time. How long should I spend in there?
Lyn: An hour is enough and don’t overdo things at the start. You don't need to go every day.
Tom: Hey, that is good news. You play tennis don’t you? Maybe we could play sometimes. But I'm not very good. How good are you?
Lyn: Very good.
Tom: Hmm. That may not be a good idea then. What about badminton? How well do you play that?
Lyn: I’m even better than at tennis.
Tom: OK. Well, maybe I better get fit before thinking of playing sports with you. Thanks for the advice.
Lyn: No problem.
