Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
My family and I are traveling to Dubai next month.
That’s great news! I know you’ve been working hard so you really
deserve this vacation break. Which places are you going to visit?
Of course, visiting Burj Khalifa is at the top of our list. It’s definitely a must-visit.
Burj Khalifa? That’s the tallest building in the world, right?
Yes, it is. We are going to buy tickets for its observation deck.
That’s really nice. Burj Khalifa is a magnificent structure. But I doubt if
I’ll be able to go to its observation deck. I guess I’ll just admire it from a distance.
Why do you say so?
Oh, I’m terribly afraid of heights. My knees tremble at the thought of it.
But I’m sure you’ll have a great time admiring the scenery.
It’s a scary thought, but I’ll hope you’ll be able to conquer your fear of heights. It will take time but it’s possible.
I hope so, Ron.
I will ask the questions about the conversation. Please answer them in complete sentences.
