Episode 3: Getting Acquainted

 

Reference

In this episode we look at the things you can say to someone you’ve just met.

WAITER: Another drink sir?

WALTER: No thankyou.

SUE: Excuse me – is anyone sitting here?

WALTER: No – please have a seat.

SUE: That’s better – my feet are killing me!

WALTER: Have you been here long?

SUE: No, but I just flew in this morning, and I haven’t had a chance to sit down since then.

WALTER: Oh, where have you come from?

SUE: From Manila.

WALTER: Is this your first visit to Australia?

SUE: No, I have been once before, but it was a long time ago.

WALTER: And have you been to Sydney before?

SUE: No, it’s an amazing city.

WALTER: Yes, it has its points. But you’re lucky to live in Manila. It’s a fascinating city.

SUE: What about yourself? Do you live in Sydney?

WALTER: No, I live in Melbourne. I’m just here for the conference.

SUE: I’m going to Melbourne later. What’s the weather like there?

WALTER: Not too good in winter, but at the moment it should be okay.

So, how’s your hotel?

SUE: It’s good. Very convenient – just near the harbour.

WALTER: Have you seen the Opera House yet?

SUE: Yes, we flew right over it!

WALTER: Excuse me – there’s someone I must talk to. (stands) It’s been very nice to meet you. I’m Walter by the way.

SUE: You too. I’m Sue. Perhaps we’ll meet later.

WALTER: I hope so.
