Emphatic Pronouns

Read and listen to four conversations using the grammar.

Conversation 1

Man: Wow, big box. What did you buy?
Woman: I bought myself a new computer.
Man: Nice. What kind?
Woman: I got a new Mac.
Man: Oh, cool. That must've been expensive.
Woman: A little, but I needed a new one.
Man: Yeah. I've been thinking of getting a new one myself.
Woman: You should. I find a new computer pays for itself because it makes you much more productive.
Man: True. Can't argue with that.

Conversation 2

Man: Why are you so down?
Woman: I did not get a promotion from the boss.
Man: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.
Woman: I don't think he likes me.
Man: Oh, I'm sure he likes you. Don't be so hard on yourself.
Woman: Yeah, you're right.

Conversation 3

Man: Man, these cookies smell so good.
Woman: Please try some.
Man: Oh, they look so good.
Woman: You better eat some before the kids get home.
Man: Why? Will they eat them all?
Woman: Yeah, they can't help themselves.
Man: Well, I can see why. Your cookies are so good. Can I have two?
Woman: Help yourself.

Conversation 4

Man: I like your shirt.
Woman: Thanks. I made it myself.
Man: Really? I didn't know you sew.
Woman: I do. I make a lot of my own clothes.
Man: That is so cool.
Woman: It's easy. You should try it sometime.
Man: I would if you could teach me.
Woman: Oh, you don't need me. You can learn how to do it yourself by watching videos online.
Man: Okay. I'll think about it. Thanks.
