Transcript

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: Yes! I'd like to go ...

I don't understand phrase "Take the lift". Can you explain to me, please? Thanks you.
Hello tranvanthanh141, The phrase 'take the lift' means to choose the lift rather than the stairs in a building. You can 'take the lift' or 'take the stairs'. It's similar to the way we use 'take' with modes of transport: 'take the train', 'take a taxi' etc. ~ Peter The LearnEnglish Team

I invited my coworker Luciana to go to the cinema and after that we ate pizza. We talked a lot about ours lives, careers and religion. That day I was so nervous, but at time goes by I was calmer and relaxed. It was a incredible day. Now, we have been married for 5 years. So, It worked! :-)

Yes, I asked her to go to the museum and we went. At the beginning, she seemed to be enjoying but soon I felt that she couldn't stand it for long. (l like history very much.) Once I was looking at a stone inscription and she said "Don't you think that these are boring?" I said " I enjoy trying to read them." Anyway visiting the museum didn't work very well.
