Small Talk - Sample Conversation 4.
Hallgassunk meg ismét egy beszédbe-elegyedős dialógust.
Michael: Hello. I think we met yesterday at the reception.
Bella: Hello, yes, I remember. You’re from Blackpool, right?
Michael: Yes. I’m Michael Smith.
Bella: I’m Bella Henley. Nice to meet you.
Michael: Nice to meet you, Bella. Where are you from?
Bella: From the States, but I’ve been in the UK for 5 years now. Is this your first time in the UK?
Michael: I’ve been to London a couple of times but this is my first time in Edinburgh so I find it a bit difficult to find my way around.
Bella: Are you going to the office? I can give you a lift.
Michael: Thanks a lot. Do you find it difficult to drive in the UK?
Bella: Not too bad. You really need to concentrate first but luckily, most people drive safely.
Michael: I’m not sure I could get used to it. In Blackpool I prefer to use the public transport because of the traffic jams and aggressive driving.
Bella: You don’t get many aggressive drivers here and renting a car is not so expensive.
Michael: I might consider it for the weekend. I’d like to go to Loch Ness.
Bella: Then you definitely need a car. By coach it would take ages.
Michael: I’ll ask around, maybe someone else would like to come along.
Bella: Have fun and say hello to Nessie.
Michael: Thanks for the lift. Bye.
