Dialogue 1

Read the dialogue aloud with your teacher.

Martin

Tiffany

Let’s stop and look at the souvenirs at the souvenir stand.

What types of souvenirs were you looking for?

When I travel, I usually like to bring back a special necklace or clothing.

I end up buying a lot of stuff for the kids in my family. Do you like to do that, too?

My family loves for me to take trips so they can get the goodies I bring them.

What types of things do they like?

The little kids like little trinkets, like those little shell animals over there.

I feel like this stuff is kind of overpriced.

Some souvenir stands charge more than others, so it pays to shop around.

Why don’t we try checking prices a little farther away from the tourist section?

Clerk

Welcome! How are you doing?

I’m good, thank you. Do you have this shirt in size L?

Not at the moment, but we have this shirt in size L but in white.

Hmmm… No, white gets dirty quickly. Do you have it in size L in another color?

Let me check. Yes, we also have it in red and green.

Okay, I’ll take the red one. Also, do you have any towels?

Yes, they are all over there.

I like all of them. I want them all, but can you all deliver to Greek?

I’m sorry, we cannot deliver any products.

That’s alright. Okay, I’ll buy the red shirt and five towels.

That’ll be $63.82.

Here you are, thank you!

Thank you, have a nice day!
