Jane: Yes, it is. Where are you from?

Peter: I’m from Amsterdam.
Jane: Amsterdam? Really, are you German?

Peter: NO, I’m not German. I’m Dutch.
Jane: Oh, you’re Dutch. Sorry about that.

Peter: That’s OK. Where are you from?
Jane: I’m from London, but I’m not British.

Peter: No, what are you?
Jane: Well, my parents were Spanish, so I’m Spanish, too.

Peter: That’s very interesting. Spain is a beautiful country.
Jane: Thank you. It IS a wonderful place.

Maria: Oh, yes. The city is more expensive than the country.

David: Life in the country is also much healthier than in the city.
Maria: Yes, it’s cleaner and less dangerous in the country. But, the city is much more exciting.

David: I think YOU are crazy for moving to the city.
Maria: Well, I’m young now. Maybe when I’m married and have children I’ll move back to the country.

What Shall we do?

1. Hi Chris, would you like to do something with me this weekend?
2. Sure. What shall we do?
1. I don’t know. Do you have any ideas?
2. Why don’t we see a film?
1. That’s sounds good to me. Which film shall we see?
2. Let’s see “Action Man 4”.
1. I’d rather not. I don’t like violent films. How about going to “Mad Doctor Brown”? I hear it’s quite a funny film.
2. OK. Let’s go see that. When is it on?
1. It’s on at 8 o’clock at the Rex. Shall we eat before the film?
2. Sure, that sounds great. What about going to that new Italian restaurant ‘Michetti’s’?
1. Great idea! Let’s meet there at six.
2. OK. I’ll see you at ‘Michetti’s’ at six. Bye.
