Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Would you like to go to the concert with me?
I’m sorry. You can ask Nina to go along with you.
Why so? Are you alright?
Yes, I prefer watching TV to watching a concert.
You know, I don’t like lots of things about crowded places.
Police sirens outside, chatting, coughing, people pushing past
to get to the toilet.
I think you understand that, right?
I see. Sometimes, that really feels terrible. In my case, I just enjoy being in the presence of someone famous.
Also, I don’t like the idea of sitting still for a couple of hours.
Well, for me, there is something about sitting in the dark with a group of strangers and experiencing the same event.
What I really dislike about it are picking a parking spot,
looking for your friends,
and looking for your seat.
I will ask the questions about the conversation. Please answer them in complete sentences.
|1.||Where would Ron like to go?|
|2.||What does Emma prefer to do?|
|3.||Why does Emma dislike going to a concert?|
