Transcript


Sammy: It's a great campsite. I go there a lot.
Julia: What's so good about it?
Sammy: There are great facilities. There are lots of sports facilities.
Julia: Is there a swimming pool?
Sammy: Yeah, there's a really big pool. And four tennis courts!
Julia: And what other facilities are there?
Sammy: There's an indoor sports hall for badminton and other indoor sports. And there's a gym!
Julia: Are there any shops in this village?
Sammy: Shops? No, it's quite a small village. But there is a supermarket in the campsite. They've got everything.
Julia: Hmm. It sounds good, but ...
Sammy: And you can hire bikes. There are lots of bike paths around the village.
Julia: That sounds good, but ...
Sammy: And there's a bar with live music every night. It's a great place! And in the summer there are barbecues every evening outside the bar.
Julia: But ...
Sammy: And, I think there's a jacuzzi. Plus, a sauna.
Julia: The thing is ...
Sammy: Oh, and there's a small lake, right in the middle of the campsite!
Julia: That's nice, but ...
Sammy: And the TV room. And every night they put on DVDs ...
Julia: Listen to me!
Sammy: What?        
Julia: It sounds like a great place, but ...
Sammy: But what?
Julia: Well ... I don't like camping. I hate tents! I prefer hotels.
Sammy: Oh, don't worry. There are lots of small wooden huts with kitchens, small bedrooms, a TV ... it's just like a hotel!
Julia: Well ... maybe.

Julia: We're lost, aren't we?
Sammy: I'm sure the campsite's round here somewhere.
Julia: This is not a small village. It's a big town.
Sammy: This is all new. It wasn't here before.
Julia: Excuse me. Parlez-vous anglais?
Woman: Yes, I speak a little English.
Julia: Oh, good. Is there a campsite around here?
Woman: Campsite? No, there isn't a campsite here now. Erm, the campsite closed ten years ago. They built this town on it.
Julia: When was the last time you came to this campsite?
Sammy: Erm ... when I was at school. It was a school trip. Yes, about ten years ago, I think.
Julia: Come on! Let's find a hotel.

Yes I like, but despite the camp-sites are always the cheapest options, I prefer to stay in hotels if I've got enough money to afford one.

In my childhood and as a teenager, I like camping, but today I prefer to go into a hotel.
