Nick

Emma

Where should we go sightseeing today?

I think that some things might be best done in the morning and others in the afternoon.

I think that I would like to go to the beach this morning.

That would be a good place to start our sightseeing. We could have breakfast there.

I heard that there is a very nice natural history museum there.

Yes, it would be nice to check that out since we are so close by.

Where should we go in the afternoon?

I think that I would like to go to the amusement park. It’s supposed to be quite good.

At the end of the day, I would love to take in the sunset at the restaurant by the park.

That sounds like a great idea! Let’s go get a map.

Dialogue 2

Read the dialogue aloud with your teacher.

Vanessa

Paul

So, what do you want to do tomorrow?

Well, let’s look at this city guide here. Why don’t we first visit the art museum in the morning?

Okay. I like that idea. And where do you want to eat lunch?

How about going to an Indian restaurant? The guide recommends one downtown a few blocks from the museum.

Now that sounds great. After that, what do you think about visiting the zoo? 

Well, to tell you the truth, I’m not really interested in going there. Why don’t we go shopping instead? There are supposed to be some really nice places to pick up souvenirs.

No, I don’t think that’s a good idea. Well. Let’s take the subway down to the seashore and walk along the beach.

Alright alright…
