Only rich people can really afford to buy a car at home. Here in the U. I bought a lot of clothes in my country before I moved to the U. I was kind of surprised that I could get nice clothes here for very reasonable prices.
In fact, it costs me less for clothes here than it used to cost me at home. I come from a small country and not a lot of people travel by plane because it costs more than most people can afford. But the U. That means I can afford to fly here and I do it all the time. Most people send their children to private schools at home because the public schools are not very good.
Public schools are better here, and cheaper than in my country. Restaurants 2. Are you ready to order? And what would you like for your main dish? Is it good? Anything to drink? Tea, please. And how about dessert? Not today, thanks.
Hi there. What can I get you today? Well, let me see. Soup and salad. Our special today is grilled fish, and that comes with broccoli or peas. Not today. But I would like some chocolate ice cream for dessert.
Coffee, and some water, please. Have you decided yet?
Is the beef stir-fry very spicy? And a glass of milk. Anything for dessert? The cheesecake is excellent. There you are, sir. Two slices of pizza and a large cola. Okay, I guess, but I think I should have ordered three or four slices. These slices are much smaller than I expected. Steak with french fries and coffee.
It looks okay. How is it?
Let me try. Oh, just perfect. Sorry to keep you waiting. One order of fried chicken with broccoli. Oh my! This chicken looks pretty dry. How does it taste? I think it must have been frozen. Fish, salad, and peas. I hate peas! Chocolate cake, with two scoops of ice cream and a large cola. That cake looks good. I wish I had ordered it. Do you want to try it? Just a taste. Did you order the spaghetti?
Here you are. I think I can make better spaghetti than this. I went to a new steak restaurant last night that opened near my house. I love trying new places. To start the meal, I had an interesting appetizer. It was some kind of seafood with a spicy sauce on it… Mmm! The main dish, of course, was steak.
It was very small and a little tough, though. However, the vegetables were great—nice and fresh, but not too oily. The final thing was the best—the dessert! It was apple pie with a lot of ice cream on it. Have you ever tried that seafood restaurant on Main Street?
I go there often. In fact, I went there last weekend. To begin, I had a salad. It was nice and fresh with a great house dressing. My main dish was a fish that I had never tried. I really enjoyed the spices it was cooked in. The vegetables were good—very fresh and tasty. For dessert, I had chocolate cake. My new girlfriend took me to a Chinese restaurant in her neighborhood the other night.
It was pretty good. First we had some egg rolls. They were the best I had ever tasted. Then we ordered the beef and pepper stir-fry. It came in a very interesting sauce—spicy, but not too spicy. We also ordered the steamed vegetables, but they were awful. They were really too soft. The dessert was a big bowl of fresh fruit. Some of the fruit I had never seen. It was fantastic—and so was my date! For lunch, my co-worker and I went to a nice little French restaurant near our office.
I had a large meal, though. First, I had the onion soup, but it was much too salty. For my main dish, I had a piece of pork. It was too dry and had no taste. The vegetables were perfect, though—broccoli and peas. Those are my favorites. Finally, I had a large bowl of chocolate mousse. It was just like the chocolate mousse I had in France during my last vacation—very creamy and delicious.
Small Talk 2. Oh, hello, Bob. How is everything with you these days? Gee, look at the time. Talk to you later. How are you, anyway? What have you been doing lately? Where have you been? I hope to see you again soon.
How have you been? Are you enjoying the party? The people here are really nice. Everyone is so friendly. Hi, Jim. Hey, hear that? Have you met her? But I think I will now. Nice talking to you. So, how are you, anyway? Not too bad. I have to work late nearly every night. The food looks good. Can I get you something? Okay, talk to you later. Hey, hi. Did you have a good trip? Yeah, it was great. I took a train across Canada. Then I drove to Disneyland.
