Hello Stanley, The speakers are going to have a drink, but it is also possible that they will have something to eat - either in the same place (a lot of pubs and cafes sell food as well as drinks) or somewhere else. Thus, the answer to number 5 is 'true' (they are going to have a drink) and the answer to number 6 is 'false' (they may have something to eat). Peter The LearnEnglish Team

In this era, it is common for people to contact others with phone or text messages. I grew up in the generation of booming of online, so i am used to reaching my friends or my families with text messages. Ridiculously, I feel leisure and comfortable when i face the screen or smartphone to send messages to my friends. i behave more actively and energetically, who has large difference from the one who meet others face to face. When i recognize the problems, i start to involve myself in some groups and get close to the crowd. I hope that i can pick up the temperature of interaction between people. Only if i feel the it, i could get along with others more casually.
