Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hi, Emma! How do you go to your office every day?
Hello, Ron. I take the train to my office. Why’d you ask?
I’m thinking of doing the same thing every other days instead of driving every day.
That’s a good idea. It will also help you save money. Commuting every day is actually tiring but manageable.
Are the fares okay as well?
Yes! The ticket rates depend on how far your destination is from your starting point.
I see. Let’s go to work together by train sometime!
Sure! See you!
I will ask the questions about the conversation. Please answer them in complete sentences.
|1.||How does Emma get to the office every day?|
|2.||Why did Ron ask Emma about her commute?|
|3.||According to the dialog, on what do the prices of train tickets depend?|
Fill in the blanks and complete the conversation.
|1.||A: Were you late yesterday?
B: Yeah. It was my fault; I didn’t anticipate the traffic so I _______ a cab.
|2.||A: Is ______________ better than driving?
B: Yes. It’s more affordable. I’ll just have to pay for my tickets instead of spending too much in oil.
|3.||A: Did you enjoy your field trip?
B: Not really. It was really __________, perhaps due to the hot weather.
|4.||A: Hey! Did you just get a haircut?
B: Yes! My hair has become more _____________ since I had it cut.
|5.||A: Excuse me, could I ask about your tourguiding service __________?
B: Sure. I’ll email you the list of our packages.
Let’s do a roleplay. Talk with me according to the situation below, using the expressions you just learned.
You met your high school friend at the train station on your way to work. Talk about your everyday trip (starting point, destination, travel time, etc.).
