Episode 03 - What do you like doing?

Julia and Sammy meet again in the park, but this time he has a question for her. Will she say yes or no?


Julia: Hi, Sammy.
Sammy: Well, Julia. Are you ... erm
Julia: Am I ...? Am I what?
Sammy: Are you ... OK?
Julia: Yes, Sammy. I'm OK.
Sammy: Yes, but ... I mean ... Are you doing anything tomorrow?
Julia: Why?
Sammy: Sorry, I know, you're probably busy tomorrow. Meeting someone already.
Julia: Yes. Maybe.
Sammy: Oh, I see. Sorry.
Julia: Yes, maybe I'm meeting someone. If he asks me.
Sammy: Great! Julia, would you like to go somewhere with me tomorrow?
Julia: Oh, I don't know, Sammy ... Yes, of course! I'd love to!
Sammy: Great!
Julia: What shall we do?
Sammy: I don't know. What about running?
Julia: Why? I hate running.
Sammy: OK. Well, what do you like doing? Oh, but not ...
Julia and Sammy: Cycling!
Sammy: I don't like cycling.
Julia: Do you like music? We could go to the opera.
Sammy: My dad loves opera. He listens to it all the time ...
Julia: Great, so ...
Sammy: But I can't stand it.
Julia: OK. OK. OK, so no opera. Great.
Sammy: What about sports? There's a football match in the afternoon.
Julia: I don't like football. It's noisy. And boring. Hey, why don't we go to the museum?
Sammy: Museum?
Julia: Oh. I see. 'Museums are boring'.
Sammy: What about the cinema?
Julia: Oh, so don't you want to talk to me?
Sammy: Of course I do!
Julia: But we can't talk in the cinema, Sammy.
Sammy: Oh, of course, you're right. Look, Julia, you don't want to go to the cinema, and you're not interested in watching football ...
Julia: Well, what about you? You don't understand opera. When you go to a museum, you go to sleep. You just want to ... run.
Sammy: Julia!
Julia: Look, Sammy, I'm sorry. I think we're too different. We just don't like the same things.
Sammy: No, I'm sure there's something we both like.
Julia: Yeah?
Sammy: Yeah. Probably ... Erm ... Oh, I know!
Julia: What? ... Of course! Shopping!
Sammy: Shopping?
Julia: I love shopping!
Sammy: Me too!
Julia: I know! We could go to the department store.
Sammy: Yeah, OK! And there's that new bookshop near to that ...
Julia: Yes! I'd like to go ...

I rarely asked someone out. But when I did, I just asked "Why don't we go somewhere tomorrow?".

Please explain about the signs "+, ++, - & --" in Task 3 and 4! I don't understand what I am supposed to do!

Hi Win Than Ngwe,

I'm sorry if the task isn't clear. We're checking language for likes and dislikes so the symbols mean as follows:

++ like a lot

+ like

- dislike

-- strongly dislike


Happy New Year!
