2 AT THE AIRPORT 3 WHAT’S YOU PROFESSION?

Edward is an American who lives in New York. He has a Brazilian friend, Carlos, who is going to spend some days in his home. They’ve been friends for a long time and Edward is glad Carlos is coming.

Chris :        Hi, Edward, how are you?

Edward:      Fine, thank you, and you?

Chris :        Just fine. You look happy today. What happened?

Edward:      A friend of mine is coming from Brazil to visit me.

Chris :        Really? What does he look like?

Edward:      He is medium height and strong. He has broad shoulders and curly hair.

Chris :        Does he speak English?

Edward:      Yes, he does. He can ask and answer questions with almost no difficulties, but he finds it difficult to maintain a conversation.

Chris :        How long has he been studying English?

Edward:      He’s been studying for almost a year, but he doesn’t practice it very often. He thinks he needs more vocabulary and idiomatic expressions. How about you, Chris? How are you doing with your Spanish lessons?

Chris :        I’m not doing very well because I’ve missed some classes, and you know, good results depend on how much you study.    

Edward:      Chris, would you like to meet my friend Carlos?

Chris :        Of course, I would! I wouldn’t miss the chance to know your foreign friend.

Edward:      Fine. So, let’s meet tomorrow at the airport at nine o’clock.

Chris :        Okay. Bye-bye now.
