Stephen: Here we are in Camden Lock Market. It’s a great place to go shopping and we need to buy a birthday present for our Mum. What do you think we should get her, Ash?
Ashlie: Well our Mum loves nice clothes and costume jewellery. So - I’m sure we’ll find something here.
Stephen: It's huge here, Ash. I’ll tell you what, let’s split up, see what we can find and I’ll meet you back here in one hour.
Ashlie: OK, I’ll see you back here in an hour, then.
Stephen: Oh, Ash – can you lend me 50 quid?
Ashlie: 50 quid, eh?
Stephen: Don’t worry, you’ll get it back!
Ashlie: That should do it.
Stephen: Thank you.
Ashlie: OK, I’ll see you back here later.
Stephen: See you!
Stephen: Wow, look at these! I’ve never seen one of these before. How much are these?
Shopkeeper: Five pound each.
Ashlie: Excuse me. Do you have this in another colour?
Stephen: Hiya – how’s it going?
Shopkeeper: Hi, very well. How are you?
Stephen: Good, thanks.
Stephen: I like these, how much are they?
Shopkeeper: Er, the leaf lights – they are £21.95.
Stephen: Hmm, I’m not sure she’ll like them. Can you help me? I’m looking for a birthday present for my mum. Any ideas?
Shopkeeper: What type of thing does she like?
Stephen: Well, she’s quite stylish – modern, I suppose.
Shopkeeper: Well, the yin yang’s really modern. What do you think of that?
Stephen: Hmm. What about that one over there?
Shopkeeper: Ah, the ball lights – lovely – it’s fifty pounds.
Shopkeeper: How about... forty, seeing as it’s your mother’s birthday?
Shopkeeper: Twenty? That’s really cheap. How about I meet you halfway – twenty-five?
Stephen: Great, thanks mate. My Mum’s going to love this.
Shopkeeper: You’re welcome.
Ashlie: Aah - I'm running out of time…
Ashlie: Excuse me, how much is this?
Shopkeeper: Er, that’s fifty pounds.
Stephen: So? How did you get on?
Ashlie: Pretty good, I guess. I bought this fantastic candle holder. It was a little bit expensive, but I think Mum will love it. In fact I almost bought one for myself!
Stephen: Yeah… great – and look what I found!
Ashlie: Well, that is just crazy – how did we end up buying the same candle holder in this huge market??!
Stephen: I’ll tell you what we’ll do. You take this one. You said you almost bought one for yourself - and you lent me fifty pounds, right?
Stephen: So you take this one, I’ll get lunch and we’ll call it quits! Come on – it’s time to get something to eat. Lunch is on me, remember. Come on!
