Beginner: Things at Home – Prepositions of Place

READING ALOUD

Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Sam and you will play Alice. Then, we’ll switch roles.

READ

Good morning, Alice. I lost my car key somewhere here in our house. Have you seen it?
You left it earlier in the kitchen. Thankfully, I brought it with me in case you come back.

Thank you. By the way, I want to add a small table beside the sofa. Would that be okay?
Of course. That is a nice idea. You can buy one online or at the mall. Anyway, you should be more careful next time.

I will keep that in mind, thank you. Oh, I will look for a table online. If I don’t find anything good, I would go to the mall.
Alright. Good luck finding the small table.
