Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Tonight, my favorite band will be performing in town. Let’s go to the concert together.
Oh, how I wish I could. However, I am on a tight budget. How much does it cost?
Don’t worry, I will treat you. Just come with me. I just can’t stand going to concerts alone.
If you say so, that’s fine. What kind of music do they play?
I suppose I’d call it rock. Do you like rock music?
That’s perfect. When does the concert start and where will it be held?
9:00 p.m., and will take place at City Hall. Would you like to have a few drinks before the show?
That’s a great idea. Is it okay if I bring a friend?
Sure. I’m wondering if we’ll be able to bring some alcoholic beverages to the concert.
That is something I will not attempt. It is generally prohibited.
