1. Making a friend in SST
Purpose - To not be anti-social and make more connections in a new environment.
Audience - The friend in my class in SST.
Context - I was sitting in the hall, not knowing anyone, so I decided to socialise with the person behind me.
Dialogue - "Hey, my name is Kenneth, what's yours?" "Donovan" (informal)

2. Disagreeing with a teacher
Purpose - To state my own opinion to the teacher and let him/her look at things in a different perspective and to let him/her wonder if I'm right.
Audience - Teacher (and possibly the class)
Context - I was listening to the teacher who is teaching us new things about the subject, then I heard something I did not agree with so I raised up my hand and told him/her that I do not agree.
Dialogue - "But I don't think that is right." (formal)

3. Asking a stranger for directions
Purpose - To reach somewhere I don't know where to go.
