Dialogue 2

Role-play Dialogue 2  with your teacher.



Excuse me. Is this seat taken?

No, go ahead…. Are you an international student?

Yes, I am. I’m Tui from Thailand. Nice to meet you.

I’m Lucy. Nice to meet you, too. Sorry, what’s your name again?

It’s Tui. T-U-I.

OK, Tui. Are you new here?

Yes, I am. How do you know?

Well, I can tell because I notice that you’re not familiar with your surroundings.

Where are you from, by the way?

 I was born and raised in London. I’m a Londoner.

Are you? You must know everything about London. I just got here two weeks ago. Is it true that London is an unfriendly city?

Um, I think that’s the common trait of a big city. Big city life is fast-paced and everybody is busy with their own business. 

 I also heard that Londoners hate tourists.

No! As a Londoner I have to say that we just don’t like rude and clueless tourists.

What do tourists do that annoys Londoners?

Um, such as standing in the middle of the pavement looking at a map or traveling with luggage on the tube during rush hour. 

Have you ever gotten angry with some tourists on the street or on the tube?

Never. I just ignore them.
