Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron, and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hi, Emma! I heard there’s going to be a community event this weekend at the plaza.
I think this is the third year in a row that they’ll be having this. They had
food stalls and a night bazaar last time.
Yes. They’ll also have live bands perform from 5 to 10 p.m.
That’s awesome! This community event really helps small businesses
and local restaurants in the city.
I agree. They get to promote their products and services to more people.
I bought some handmade curtain blinds made from bamboo at the
bazaar last time. It was from a local shop in the city. You can look for
some decorations for your new apartment.
That’s a good idea. My room looks too plain. I need to put up some decors. Let’s see if I can find some decors at the bazaar.
If you want, we can go there together this weekend.
I’m free this Saturday night. Is that okay with you? Or would you like to go on a Sunday?
Saturday is fine with me. I’m looking forward to that.
