Episode 07 - A race

Sammy and Julia discover they both like the same sport. But can they enjoy it together?


Sammy: Hi, Julia!
Julia: Oh! Hi, Sammy! You again.
Sammy: Well, I come to the park every morning. I always go jogging in the morning.
Julia: I come here most mornings, too. I usually ride my bike. I never go jogging.
Sammy: Exercise is very important. Everyone should be fit and healthy.
Julia: Do you do any other kinds of exercise apart from jogging?
Sammy: Yeah. I often, erm, go to the gym. And, occasionally run marathons.
Julia: Marathons?
Sammy: Yeah, that's why I go jogging every morning.
Julia: And do you ever go swimming?
Sammy: Swimming? Yeah, I love swimming. I usually go three or four times a week.
Julia: I love swimming.
Sammy: I love swimming. I'm a really good swimmer, actually.
Julia: Yes, I'm a good swimmer, too.
Sammy: No, I'm a really good swimmer. I was in my school team.
Julia: Very impressive. ... Do you fancy going swimming this afternoon?
Sammy: Yeah, I'd love to.
Julia: OK. See you at the pool! Four o'clock?
Sammy: OK.

Man: Hey, Julia!
Julia: Oh, hi!
Sammy: Let's see what a good swimmer you are! Let's have a race!
Julia: A race? You and me?
A second man: Hey, Julia!
Julia: Oh, hello!
Sammy: Yes, you and me. Are you scared?
Julia: Scared? Me?! Don't be silly! ... OK, then. It's a race. The first to the other side of the pool is the winner!

Sammy: Wow! You really are a good swimmer! How often do you go swimming?
Julia: I go swimming every day. Sometimes twice a day. In fact, I'm a member of the city swimming team.
Sammy: Oh!
