Mei: Who are you? Do you live here?
Milton: Um, yes, I am, I do, I mean, yes, I live in this flat here, with Benedita and Paulo. Are you our new neighbour?
Mei: I live in this flat here – number 4A.
Milton: My name is Milton. And you're ...?
Milton: Mei. OK, nice to meet you, Mei.
Mei: Nice to meet you.
Mei: Goodbye then.
Mei: Are you not going into your flat?
Milton: Ah, well, that's a bit of a problem. I haven't got the key.
Mei: You haven't got the key? Are you sure you live there?
Milton: Of course I live here – I told you – but I left my keys in the kitchen this morning.
Mei: So what are you going to do?
Milton: I don't know. I used to leave a key with my old friend Carolina on the ground floor, but she's gone away.
Milton: Um, you know you've got a small balcony outside your kitchen?
Mei: Yes ...
Milton: Well, so have we.
Mei: Yes ...
Milton: Well, I could climb from your balcony over to our balcony and get in through the kitchen window.
Mei: I am not ... I don't ...
Milton: I'll be careful. Don't worry.
Mei: But I don't know you! How do I know you're not a criminal?
Milton: You mean a burglar? No! I told you – my name is Milton da Silva. I studied here in the UK. I can show you some ... Ha! My old student card. Here.
Mei: OK, so you are Milton da Silva. Newcastle University, School of Theatre Studies. You could be a burglar now.
Milton: Really? Look, you can hold my bag with all my money and everything.
Mei: OK, come in. Go straight to the kitchen. That way.
Milton: There you are! Job done!
Milton: So, thanks for your help – really.
Mei: That's OK.
Milton: Hey, Mei.
Milton: Well – if we're neighbours now ... I'm Milton, I'm from Brazil, I'm an actor. What about you?
Mei: My name is Mei and I'm from China.
Milton: And are you studying here?
Mei: No, I'm working. I have a job here. In IT.
Milton: Do you like it?
Mei: I don't know. I haven't started yet. I only left China last week.
Milton: Well – good luck. I'm sure it'll all go well.
Mei: I hope so.
Milton: OK. Bye. Thanks again.
