Introduction

Jennifer and Sam are really looking forward to the festival they are going to today. There will be a wide variety of different activities, performances and food.

Dialogue

Jennifer

  Hi Sam. Where shall we meet today?

Sam

  How about in front of the market at one o’clock?

Jennifer

  Okay, perfect! See you there!

Later…

Sam

  Hi! What a cool outfit! It’s so colorful!

Jennifer

  Oh thanks. My dad brought it back from one of his business trips in Indonesia.

Sam

  Let’s go get a timetable of all the events today.

Jennifer

  Great idea!

Sam

  Here it says that there’s a magic show in the main square at two o’clock, there’s a jazz concert at 3:30 and there’s a food and wine festival starting at 5 pm.

Jennifer

  Great! I’d like to do all of that!

Sam

  Me too! It looks like tickets are sold in that office.

At the concert…

Jennifer

  They are such good musicians. They must have been rehearsing for months.

Sam

  I agree. It’s magical! They seem to radiate happiness with their music. Look how everyone is dancing!

Jennifer

  I know! It’s amazing!

Sam

  I’m getting hungry. I haven’t eaten since 11 this morning.

Jennifer

  Why don’t you go buy yourself a bag of potato chips or something?

Sam

  I might, but if I leave now, the concert will have finished by the time I come back.

Jennifer

  You’re right. Let’s wait for the food festival. Here, I brought some sweets in my purse.

Sam

  Oh, thanks.

At the food and wine festival…

Jennifer

  I’ve been to this food festival before, but this year it’s so much bigger!

Sam

  Yeah, look at all the stands!

Jennifer

  We can each either buy 3 or 6 tickets for tastes of food. The tastes are small dishes of food, so you can try lots of different dishes.

Sam

  I’m starving. I could eat 20 dishes!

Jennifer

  I think I’ll just buy 3. I would eat 6 if I weren’t on a diet.

Sam

  Come on! You only live once. Enjoy yourself!

Jennifer

  I guess you’re right. I’ll buy 6 tickets!
